We already have an Alexandra, won't be finding out the gender. Like quite classic but not overly popular.Current list of likes:

Girls:
Georgina ( nn Georgie)
Harriet
Margot
Hermione
Martha ( least fave)

boys:
Henry ( family name but put off slightly by popularity)
Miles (milo)
Marcus (least fave)
Lucien
Louie (spelt this way dislike Lewis)
Rory

Names we've discounted:
Edward ( don't like Ed, eddy etc)
Helena ( like but put off by multiple ways to pronounce)

Any other suggestions?

Thanks all, now decided we will find out at next scan on the sex, but still enjoying thinking of both for now. Boys I think we have agreed on rafe/raef or miles. Girls really struggling with, can't agree on any. Gone off Georgina. I love hermione but dh has vetoed. We really struggled with dd1, she got the only girls name we liked! Maybe Lydia but not sure. I might be able to persuade dh on Harriet

Op - your list has to be the nicest, loveliest list of potential baby names I have ever seen on MN! My DC are 14 and 11 now but still enjoy reading the baby names thread!

I really like Georgina, Harriet and Margot

I also love Henry but find it too popular, middle name maybe. Love Marcus and also really like Lucien.

Nicae Sun 30-Jul-17 21:46:23

We have an Alexandra and an Isabella - I know Isabella is v popular at the moment but I wasn't prepared to be put off a name I loved just because other people liked it too! I think they work well together (obviously!) although both girls go by shortened versions most of the time.

Louisa for a girl and Frederick for a boy.

Annabelle4 Mon 31-Jul-17 11:21:24

Haven't read the thread but the 2 that popped into my head are Charlotte and Hugo. Either great with Alexandra IMO

wapphighwood Mon 31-Jul-17 18:04:36

I suggested Louisa but dh said no. I also like Frederick, but surname also begins in f, which dh isn't a fan of....might be able to change his mind I think it sounds ok.

I like the leona suggestion, would it be too pop idol/ X factor ( whatever it is, we don't watch it) with those two winners Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis?!
