Indigo Blue
Violet Skye
Sunny Rae
Sienna Rose
Posy Flo

(In that order)

I think Sonny Ray and Arthur Bear were the boys names....

I have 2 DS's with much less colourful names still holding a torch for Indigo

Tallin (for a girl). I would have called her Tally. I didn't have a boys name as I thought I would just have girls. 3 boys later grin

Elizabeth when I was young as all my teddies were called this, would potentially use this now, Eliza is my favourite...when I was a teenager it was Isla-Rae and Alfie...I definitely wouldn't use either of these now!

Nicholas because there was a boy at junior school who was very cute and Nicola to match as girls name

LavenderLemons Sun 22-Oct-17 16:15:48

Sorrel and Tamsin.

Would have used them too, except friends said Sorrel sounds like sorrow and Tamsin like tampax!

Never had a favourite boy name.
