Short boy and girl names for #3

(67 Posts)
Ginlinessisnexttogodliness Wed 12-Apr-17 19:06:31

My brain is hurting.
It's a way off but as baby names seem to be the only things about pregnancy I ever enjoy thought I'd start now.

We are expecting baby number three end of October / beginning of Nov

We have a son called Kit and a daughter called Wren. As we are not finding out, we need to cater for both eventualities.
Criteria are short and something a little unusual / quirky but also sweet.
Please bombard me. I'm driving myself and OH nuts with this already. He's told me to bother someone else...sorry

I quite like Art for a boy but I may be slightly biased as it can be a short form of my DF's name.

How about Maeve for a girl?

Thank You so much everyone. 😊

Some really lovely names and a few I've not considered.
I'm going to compile a long shortlist. JanuaryJuniper I'll post it later, it will be my first shortlist as don't have one yet. I'm really struggling to find a name for a boy or girl I just fall in love with. With our other two those names were the One from the start and no competition. Not so lucky this time. 🙈

What do people think of Annie or Inez for a girl?
And how about Corin or Keir for a boy?

Do they go with the other little people's names?

Inez is just perfect! Annie is a bit cutesy compared to Kit and Wren.

Corin sounds reasonably similar to Wren to my ear, but it could just me. Kit and Kier is maybe a bit of a tongue twister too.

How about Ezra for a boy?

Inez/Ines is beautiful! Another one of my favourites smile

I like Corin of your boy ideas but it does sound a bit similar to Wren, maybe? How about Tor?
