We have spent most of the day looking at, discussing and playing around with our LONG list of names and think we may have narrowed it down to Otis and Cosima!!!!!

So what do you think....

Eli, Aphra & Otis

Eli, Aphra & Cosima

Have you been watching orphan black?

Sophronia Sun 26-Feb-17 22:32:37

Very nice, and they go well with the siblings names

EggsEleven Sun 26-Feb-17 22:36:45


I don't like Cosima at all and don't think it goes with the siblings names either

JanuaryJuniper Sun 26-Feb-17 22:51:26

What is Orphan Black never heard of it?

RedSauce Sun 26-Feb-17 23:39:22

I love both! Also love Eli and Aphra so we obviously have similar taste. Our DS1 was very nearly Otis and Cosima will be high on our list if we ever have a DD.

I love Otis. Not so sure about Cosima if I'm honest.It sounds made up. I think I'd like it if it was a name in a different culture if that makes sense.

I loooooove Cosima (and Orphan Black -the tv show).

Nospringflower Mon 27-Feb-17 00:12:34

I think they sound great together!

DramaAlpaca Mon 27-Feb-17 00:14:09

They go very well together.

Yeah I hadn't heard of Cosima until Orphan Black although it makes sense with cosimo as the boys name.

Our familiy isn't cool enough for those names but I think they are really nice.

Yeaaah nice to hear some positive comments, it's taken quite a bit of deliberation to get here ( and we haven't even sorted middle names)

Myself and dh are pronouncing Cosima as Coz eem that correct?

AdaColeman Mon 27-Feb-17 00:18:52

Cosima is fab, and makes a good sib-set.

Not at all keen on Otis and don't think it goes with your other names.

(Really love Aphra!)

JanuaryJuniper Mon 27-Feb-17 00:21:49

Or should it be Cos ee mah we like it either way, though it would seem that Coz eem ah is the correct pronunciation

IHeartKingThistle Mon 27-Feb-17 00:25:36

I assumed the stress was on the first syllable: CO-sim-ah. But I could be wrong!

JanuaryJuniper Mon 27-Feb-17 01:06:13

Ok the more I research Cosima the more pronunciations I'm finding...

Cos ee mah
Cozy mah
Co zeem ah ?????

Poncy and try hard

JanuaryJuniper Mon 27-Feb-17 01:27:42

Poncy and try hard... yep me in a nutshell your so perceptive!!!!

GreenTrafficLights Mon 27-Feb-17 09:52:38

I love Cosima. Otis is a bit ubiquitous nowadays and I don't think it's as interesting as your other names.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 27-Feb-17 10:02:05

Cosima is fab ! Your names go very well together.

Ellarose85 Mon 27-Feb-17 13:19:44

I love Otis, I really wanted it for DS but DP didn't like it sob if I have another boy, I will have my way wink

Rockaby Mon 27-Feb-17 19:04:45

Love Otis and your other DCs' names, but I'm not keen on Cosima.

chatnanny Mon 27-Feb-17 19:07:44

I love Cosima, my DD was going to call her baby that but it was a boy! It's just phonetic isn't it cos- i (as in if) - may as in mother? Nigella Lawson has a Cosima I believe.

I like them both. Cosima is a breath of fresh air.
