I love Stella, Vivienne, Wren and Sebastian- have you thought about:

Rosa
Celeste
Hector
Dexter

CantHelpDancingWithTheDevil Sat 15-Apr-17 18:47:37

I love Hector - but that's my dad's nickname for Evan - he's a Classics teacher; he's rooting for Persephone for a girl 😂

I also love Dexter but that's a puppy name in my area..

I think my girls list is alright; one or two may end up kicked off along the way but fairly watertight list I reckon testofthehormones

I wanted Parker and Jasper for Evan; I'm pleased my husband vetoed Parker and I can't love Jasper this time around 😭

When I read your thread title, I instantly shouted Margot (in my head obviously grin).

Maybe Caspar for a boy?

Jooni Sat 15-Apr-17 18:57:54

Jasper would be lovely! I like Sebastian too.

Hector is fab for a boy, or how about:

Alistair/Alastair
August
Otto
Miles
Nathaniel
Caspar
Lucian
Felix

For a girl, I actually love Persephone! Is that bad? blush Maybe:

Violet/Viola
Isolde
Clara
Beatrix
Felicity
Juniper
Helena
Rhoswen

Ahh my people have came to me 😍

Just looked up the different spellings of Alistair/Alastair

I also love Nathaniel..my mum rooted for it when I was pregnant, we liked "Luke" too - but the accent six miles up the road has it pronounced as "luck"

And Helene and Helena? I don't think they work with a Belfast accent 🙁 even though I love Helena Bonham Carter

Persephone is a beautiful name; but a Persephone around here is always gonna be Percy Phone 🙁

Penelope? Phoebe? Seren?

I like Claudia, Imogen and Wren from your girls list.

Like Sebastian too

Austin, Bruno, Cosmo, Caspar, Carter, Damien, Fergus, Fraser, Flynn, Harrison, Isaac, Jude, Jared, Jesse, Kyle, Logan, Lucas, Milo, Micah, Nico, Oscar, Reuben, Riley, Seth, Tyler, Zach

I like Evan and Francesca
Evan and Phoebe
Evan and Esme

Evan and Sebastian go well together.

CantHelpDancingWithTheDevil Sat 15-Apr-17 20:21:45

Oh I like Francesca and Fraser..

They're lovely 😍

Great suggestions everyone, some absolute crackers there and a few added to my lists

I dislike the trend of Hayden, Jayden, Kayden etc - nothing wrong with them, just not to my taste and they're very overused in NI. Oliver, Archie, Alfie, Charlie etc are lovely but very overused so looking something a bit more different but not ridiculous iyswim

Stella is beautiful. And it sounds great with Evan.

My BIL is an Evan, so his brother (my DH) is a Christopher.

Wenchelda Sat 15-Apr-17 21:52:37

I know of 2 Evan's ... one has a sister called Zoe, and the other a brother called Owen. Both of which I think go really well.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Sat 15-Apr-17 21:55:33

Same as Wenchelda the Evan I know has a brother called Owen. Another that I know has 2 sisters call Isla & Millie.

Brandnewstart Sat 15-Apr-17 21:56:46

I have an Evan whose brother is the name of the bloke who founded the NHS. But I did love Rowen too.

If DD had been a boy she would have been Evan Tudor

SuperBeagle Sat 15-Apr-17 22:08:26

I know an Evan with a brother named Henry. smile

CantHelpDancingWithTheDevil Sat 15-Apr-17 22:17:50

Great list Sophronia

I don't love the name Evan. I mean obviously I like it, and it suits my little boy down to the ground - but I do find myself getting sad sometimes when I overthink it..so I must love this new name

My list - which DH hasn't looked at yet, now consists of -

Sebastian
Rafael
Miles
Nathan
Fraser

And I don't love any of them 😭 maybe Sebastian..

CantHelpDancingWithTheDevil Sat 15-Apr-17 22:18:55

That was supposed to be "Nathaniel" not Nathan (although I guess he'd get Nathan by his teenage years)
