Girls names:
Merryn
Maya
Erin
Rowan
Eliza

Boys names:
Caleb
Ezra
Rowan

For boys possibly combined with a fairly rare, longish middle name. Or possibly with another of the above for middle name.

Pretty set on one of those for boys, however not got a clear favourite with girls so ideas especially welcome. Passing time in TWW at present!!

I love Rowan for a boy. For a girl I like Maya, Merryn and Eliza. Maya and Eliza are more common so my favourite would probably be Merryn.

I like the good responses for Merryn.
It is our favourite, but was out off by a google which showed it was the name of a meat factory. sad.
Hopefully it wouldn't be a strong connection!
Glad of the largely positive responses to all the names so far!

I love all of your names, but prefer Rowan for a boy.

I know a Merryn but was not aware of the meat factory association. I'd use Merryn if I had another DD (unlikely as I'm in my 50s. grin)
