Just over a week to go and my list has whittled down (I've gone off nearly every name!!) These are what I'm left with, but still no clear winners.
Opinions on these or other suggestions welcome!

Boy - Arran

Girl - Isa

Roan and Rosa smile

Careful if you eventually have a second as Id say you couldnt have a Roan and a Rosa or an Arran and an Arla.

avaj Tue 21-Feb-17 21:39:09

This will be my third and last!

Roan rhymes with moan? That's what it looks like. Rohan or Rowan would be better if that's how you want it pronounced (nice name btw).

Mack - no way, sounds like a nickname used by Americans in the 50s. Like Slick or something.

Arran - yuck

Isa - love
Rosa - it's okay but quite common
Arla - love

So I like your girls names better!

Don't like Mack - sorry.
Roan to me is the colour of a horse so maybe Rowan instead?

IHeartKingThistle Tue 21-Feb-17 21:45:46

Ooh I love Mack!

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 21-Feb-17 21:51:48

I assumed Roan was pronounced the same a species Rowan / Rohan.

If it's more like roan as in strawberry roan horse, then I'd vote for something else.

Love Roan (but spelt Rowan) and Rosa.

Other options based on what you like:




Elbi Tue 21-Feb-17 22:22:17

All lovely but personally I wouldn't use Isa - to me it's a savings account.

228agreenend Tue 21-Feb-17 22:31:46

Arran - okay
Mack - I would use as a nn
Roan - sorry, no

Rosa - love
Other names, not so sure



Baconsausageandegg Tue 21-Feb-17 22:42:41

Arran - okay but I prefer Aaron smile
Mack - I like this !
Roan - it's okay but nicer as Rowan

Isa - not sure, sounds like you forgot the bel
Rosa - beautiful
Arla - milk !

TeshiB Tue 21-Feb-17 22:46:04

Roan but would prefer Rowan.
And Rosa! Both lovely names.

AshesandDust Tue 21-Feb-17 22:48:10

I really like Mack and Rosa is a lovely name.

Sophronia Wed 22-Feb-17 01:21:38

Arran and Rosa

Jooni Wed 22-Feb-17 07:34:40

Mack and Rosa. Isa is lovely too but does make me think of the savings account, and Arla makes me think of the dairy.

Thanks for the feedback! I hadn't thought of the milk thing with Arla... I think it's put me off though.
Being in Scotland I was worried about the Still Game connection with Isa, but hasn't been mentioned yet!
Rosa and Mack had been my favourites, but then I went off all of them. Possibly over thinking!

Jojo13 Wed 22-Feb-17 09:30:33

Mack and Rosa (or Arla if you can get over the milk thing!)

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 22-Feb-17 09:40:37

Mack and Rosa, for sure. Both great names. 😀

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 22-Feb-17 23:56:52

Arran and Rosa

OP, not sure if anyone else who has commented is Scottish but I am. Still game is the only thing that pops into my head when I hear the name Isa. I instantly think of an old, busy body. Sorry, it may just be me but I definitely couldn't use that name for a baby because of the connotations in Scotland.

I love Arran and Rosa though.

Thanks Bringbacksummer, I had a whole day and night of loving the name Isa before I thought of still game! Not really the namesake you want for your DD.
