My boyfriend and I have children from previous marriages. His girls have very different style names to my children. His wife didn't like common names and as a result, 3 out of 4 of his children have names I'd never heard of before. The 4th has a name that isn't as uncommon though still unusual.
My children on the other hand have top 100 names. I like names that allow them to blend in.
We're having our first baby together and my boyfriend has said to make a list of names I like and he'll choose the ones he likes off the list. His criteria is that we are not to repeat an initial - he has twins starting with the same initial at the insistence of his wife and it causes a lot of trouble. He always doesn't want a super common name but wants one that people have heard of as again having unusual names has caused trouble for his children.
This is the first list of names I've come up with. What do you think? Surname will be double barrell, first name is 3 syllables and second is 1 syllable.
Ada Aubrey Demi Dixie Edie Eira Ember Gemma Heidi Maddie Mara Mira Mya Myra Zara Zoe
Avery Bobby Brody Dougie Eddie Edgar Ezra Herbie Maddox Ziggy
I like Ada and love Edie. I really like Avery not a name I 've thought of and may be stealing if i have a boy! I like Ezra but was vetoed so we comprised on Elias but went for Jonah in the end for ds1! If ds1 was a girl would have been Anya which is a lovely short name and not too popular. X
Throwing a spanner in the works. How about Ziggy for a girl? There was a girl in DDs class called that and it suited her so much. Parents huge Bowie fans which explains it. I'm not keen on it for a boy.
Mya is my favourite of your girls names and Ezra for a boy.
