DD1 is Clarissa "scandi flower" virtue name"

So, like Clarissa Akleja Temperance (for example!).

If DC 2 is a boy... I really like these:

Ludovico (would be named after a super cool dude in my family)
Bertram (I went to school with a really lovely Austrian boy called Bertram)

If the first name isn't Erik then the middle name will probably be. I'd like the last name to be a virtue name. So, maybe Horatio (after DH) or Ignatio. Or maybe Clemens.

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 14:01:42

Another vote for Anton Erik Horatio.

BasicBetty Tue 07-Mar-17 14:47:37

I like Anthony or Ludovico.

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 14:50:49


I honestly like all of these smile Idk. But there are just so many awesome boy's names imo... I think girl names are so much more complicated.

The only one I'm maybe a bit "ehh" about is Anthony. I just don't know if this works in any other language than English. If that makes sense...?

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 14:51:24

And yes, I do agree.

Anton Erik Horatio is really cool. And solid smile!

I would focus on finding a perfect first names (middle names get used so rarely it almost doesn't matter).
I really like
Clemens or Clement

MrsMontgomerySmythe Tue 07-Mar-17 16:42:18

I love Ludo/Ludovico

Clarissa and Ludo sound good together smile

NinonDeLanclos Tue 07-Mar-17 16:56:45

Love Ludovico.

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 17:07:19

Is Ludo a common British nn for Ludovico? (I'm an expat)

gummi very true smile

these are the only names currently considered as first names:

Ludovico (would be named after a super cool dude in my family)
Bertram (I went to school with a really lovely Austrian boy called Bertram)

ninon thanks smile!

MrsMontgomerySmythe Tue 07-Mar-17 17:54:23

Well I am an expat overseas and have met a few Ludos whose names are shortened from Ludovico or Luduvic.

I have a Luca and Ludo is similar but I imagine much more unusual than Luca now is in the UK.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 07-Mar-17 18:11:48

My vote goes to;
Anton Erik Horatio.

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 18:12:55

I'm also an expat. But in the UK smile (DH is British, however. Does this actually mean I'm an expat...? I did move here before meeting DH. anyhow. I'm rambling).

I'm not a fan of Luca. Not because it may be more common in the UK. But Idk. I know many people called Lukas, Lucas, Luca. And whilst this is the 2nd name of an awesome cousin of mine there are also some bad eggs amongst these people...

17caterpillars1mouse Tue 07-Mar-17 19:25:12

I love Bertram nn Bertie

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 19:28:29

I do like Bertram nn Bertie as well smile

I'm super surprised by the united response on mumsnet. I didn't think mumsnetter would like Anton this much, tbh smile

I like Clarissa. I only like Anthony of the boy names (sorry).

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 07-Mar-17 21:34:47


I also like Clarissa. Thank you smile

No need to be sorry. I'm asking smile Anthony is very nice imo. Plus, the nns Tony/Toni/Tonino are so cute imo.
