My husband and I are expecting our first baby, I’m still early in my pregnancy but we are already chatting about names.

All along I have loved the name Eve for a girl and have a few middle names that I like with it.

Eve Madeleine
Eve Annabel
Eve Alexandra

I also like Bridget (my favourite by my husband hates it), Ada and Pia for girls but we are leaning towards Eve - which middle name sounds best?

For boys we have no idea - my husband likes Rafael which I do not, and I haven’t found a single boy name yet that I love! Would love any suggestions of boys names that are similar in style to the girls names above.

Our last name is doubled barreled with the first name beginning with “L”

Thanks so much! smile

Eve Alexandra flows much better than the others.

Not sure what 'style' you mean, really! What boys' names do you like, even if you don't love any?

Yes, I also love Eve Alexandra!

I actually like Eve Annabel.

How about Christian for a boy if DH likes Rafael?

I prefer Eve Madeleine, but any three of those middle names would work well. I also like you other names Bridget, Ada and Pia. Any one of these names would be gorgeous.

For boy name suggestions, how about...
Rory
Michael
Daniel
Julian
Benjamin
Alexander
Patrick
Samuel
Isaac
Ryan
Finn
Noah
Theo
Leo
Luke
Ethan

I like Bridget Eve. smile

Eve Alexandra and I think Jude for a boy would suit you as you like longer middles

BrutusMcDogface Thu 30-Nov-17 10:26:38

Not a fan of Pia- "pee-er" - would be really laughed at at school, I think?!

Love Eve and Ada, though!

Congratulations! smile

All the middle names are OK. I like Madeleine and Alexandra most.
For a boy - Adam?

I love Eve and think Eve Alexandra sounds best together although prefer Annabel as a name.

For boys, do you like simple names? Biblical? Short? (Thinking along the lines of Eve...)

How about:
Noah
Jonah
Luke
Adam
Leo
Jacob
Tom

Eve Alexandra is best though I prefer Evelyn.

Eve Alexandra sounds much better than the others just because it flows nicely.

I think Rafael/Raphael is an AWESOME name, and would totally go with your Husbands choice there.
Which boys names do you definitely hate? That'll help narrow it down.

If your DH likes Raphael what about Gabriel, Gabe as a nn.

I love Ada, Pia and Eve. In that order!

Pia Madeleine is lovely. I have a cousin Pia, and as far as I know she's never had any issues. Especially as there is now 'Pia Mia' who is popular amongst teenage girls (part of the Kylie and Kendall shenanigans)
