Need some help with name ideas, I'm 36 weeks so running out of time slowly... We agreed on Lux a while ago but my entire family seem against it so trying to keep an open mind smile thanks!

Lux is one of our choices!

We also like Dulcie and Pearl, if that helps!

Lux is creamy soap. Short for luxury.

Don't tell your family your choice before baby is born!

Lux Aeterna - eternal light.

Unfortunately also a soap.

I like it but it may not be fun to be the person named Lux.

For paper soft hands, you can rely on Lux.

I came across an unusual name just recently, I think it's Spanish. I'll look it up.

I like Lux... how about:

Aspen
Emmeline
or Blythe?

Jane is far from unusual. Uncommon nowadays maybe.

I agree re Jane ^

More ransom, than anything but how about ...

Cordellia (Shakespeare)
Cosette ("Cause-ette" - from Les Mis)
Pandora
Seren (Welsh for star)
Luna
Iolite
Sapphire
Aria

We have friends who called their baby Mary recently. I think it is fair to say her name will be unique in every group she is in for most of her life.

Lux doesn't have a nice sound to me - also inevitably makes me think of soap.

I know a girl called Cordiana - never heard that before but I like it.

Lux/looks/luck - I don't think it works that well.

Serene is gorgeous whoever suggested that.

What about Marley, Lindi, jessa, Juno, Elise?

Go with your gut op smile family didn't like any of our name choices for any of our DC- just aswell it wasn't up to them! grin

Oysterbabe Mon 27-Feb-17 16:44:41

Never tell anyone your name choices! Although it may have helped your baby escape being called Lux so maybe not all bad.
