Baby no 2 is nearly here. Big brother is 2 year old Caleb.

Can I have thoughts on these names please and any suggestions based upon what I have so far. I appreciate some are quite unusual names.

Boys (really struggling):

Elowen (nn Winnie for short)

Thank you!

Cruz is nice.......

They're all too unusual for my taste although I do like Caleb.

IHeartDodo Fri 07-Apr-17 13:13:08

Erm the only ones I would even consider are Maeve (nice) and maybe Nancy. The others either don't really sound like names (Bodhi? - pronounced like body?) or are just odd... - Dusty and Goldie sound like a country music singers.

I don't like any of them. I agree that Caleb is lovely though.

ScarletSienna Fri 07-Apr-17 13:15:48

I really like Bodhi, Elowen and Maeve.

I really like Bodhi (it was on our list for DS2). The girls names aren't really to my taste but I think Elowen is the nicest one on the list.

Love Maeve & Elowen is pretty & unusual. Not keen on Cruz (think it will date & it makes me think of the Beckhams). Bodhi is OK but I prefer Brody/Brodie, which is Irish Scots in origin.

LouKout Fri 07-Apr-17 13:19:49

Sorry Dusty and Goldie sound like dogs names

PenguinDi Fri 07-Apr-17 13:25:24

Elowen sounds very Tolkien to me, if you are going down that route what about Elanor?

Jooni Fri 07-Apr-17 13:30:39

Really not keen on Cruz, Dusty or Goldie. The others are quite nice, especially the girls. I prefer Brodie or Rudy over Bodhi, which strikes me as a bit hippy.

How about:



Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 07-Apr-17 17:27:31

I like the suggestion of Rudy, and Asa also goes well with Caleb.
How about Golda (Goldie).
Nancy is nice.

GuinessPunch Fri 07-Apr-17 17:28:15

Lovr cruz. The rest are dire.

ChippieFishieHorshie Fri 07-Apr-17 17:30:36

Elowen and Nancy are nice smile!!

Not a fan of your boy's names.

James? Vinod?

Caleb is great, what you're on when you've thought of the others I don't know

Mrsknackered Fri 07-Apr-17 17:52:03

Love Bodhi. I think Cruz is quite a harsh name so not overly keen.
Love Elowen and Maeve. I know of a couple baby Dusty's and really don't like.
I like Goldie too but Goldie Lookin Chain springs to mind! grin

TinfoilHattie Fri 07-Apr-17 17:53:06

Elowen, Nancy and Maeve are lovely. The rest are not good.

Alexalvarez2 Fri 07-Apr-17 18:52:45

Haha thanks for the (brutally) honest feedback. The likelihood is that a girl would be named Elowen unless I find something I love more. So so stumped on boys names though ... we can't have any names with a soft 'a' sound out the end for example Asa or Emilia due to the sound of our surname. Arghhh boys names are so hard! Thanks

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 07-Apr-17 20:20:52

Alexa, we all love names, and we do tend to be honest, but we also get carried away, and become brutal. It isn't personal though, we do have your interests at heart. Just sift through, listen or ignore. 😄
Elowen is lovely. More boys name suggestions ;
Caleb and Adam
Caleb and Joseph
Caleb and Jonas
Caleb and Gabriel
Caleb and Matthew

BounceBounceSplishSplash Fri 07-Apr-17 20:22:46

Sorry but the boys names are awful and don't go with Caleb (which is a nice name). I do really like Elowen, Maeve and Nancy though in that order.

buttercup54321 Fri 07-Apr-17 21:20:09

Dusty and Goldie are dogs names. Don't like any of the others either. Love Caleb though.
what about
Caleb and Aaron
Caleb and Jacob
Caleb and Daniel
Caleb and Matthew
Caleb and Zachary
Caleb and Mason
Caleb and Amy
Caleb and Lucy
Caleb and Matilda
Caleb and Katie
Caleb and Eliza
Caleb and Beth

Gabe and Nate go nicely with Caleb (Love caleb btw) . HOw about Seth?

Yika Fri 07-Apr-17 21:27:06

I like Goldie.

I find Bodhi as a spelling a bit 'out there'. I'd spell it Bodie. Remember Bodie and Doyle anyone? Or are you all too young??!

Caleb is a terrific name.

What about Jesse, Joel or Corey?

lizzieoak Fri 07-Apr-17 21:28:32

Don't like the boys' names, but Elowen and Maeve are lovely.

I like Caleb so much more than your other boy choices.



Elowen / Winnie is lovely
