So we have a shortlist of 4 names each for girls and boys, and I would love to get some opinions on them. Our surname is Patrick, and we have already decided all names will also have my mum's maiden name as a middle name (Blackler - its a rare name that we would like to continue our branch of) so all names would need to sit well with both.

Girls:
Kiana Mai
Eleanor Daisy
Phoebe Anna
Megan Lucy

Boys:
Nathaniel Oliver
Joshua Ian
Jamie Connor
Matthew Thomas

My favourites are:

Megan Lucy Blackler Patrick

Matthew Thomas Blackler Patrick
Nathaniel Oliver Blackler Patrick (although not sure about NOBP initials)

Really love all of those names!

Personally I really really dislike Kiana Mai. I'm sort of surprised it's on your list as it's so different to all the others fgrin

I don't like Kiana or Mai. They both have pronunciation and spelling issues (Kee-Ahna/Anna or rhyme with Diana? and My/May. The others are fine.
Congratulations and best wishes.

I thought Megan Lucy or Thomas Oliver too.

I too am surprised at Kiana and Mai getting in there, as they seem very different from the rest.
I like Megan and Matthew best of those, but it's just personal taste. I like all the boys (although prefer James to Jamie, giving him that option as he grows), and only dislike Kiana of the girls.

Kiana Mai is beyond awful, I hope its not the favourite.The rest are fine.

MollyHuaCha Tue 12-Dec-17 14:57:48

In my view...

Kiana Mai -no
Eleanor Daisy - nice
Phoebe Anna - nice
Megan Lucy - nice

Boys:
Nathaniel Oliver - first 3 initials = NOB
Joshua Ian - ok
Jamie Connor - no
Matthew Thomas nice

Phoebe Anna sounds good to me, because I like the work of the artist Phoebe Anna Traquair.

Eleanor Daisy is lovely too, but I'm not keen on Kiana Mai.

I like all your boys choices.

Congratulations! flowers I love Kiana Mai. Its really unique IMO. Joshua Ian is my pick from the boy names.

Lemonnaise Tue 12-Dec-17 18:06:56

Megan and Matthew are my favourites.

Happpydays Tue 12-Dec-17 18:34:48

I can't believe there are so many negative views on Kiana Mai - I like that one the best out of your girls names! It's different but still 'proper' and really nice.

Boys I think Joshua Ian and Jamie Connor are best.

All the names are really beautiful, though, you can't go wrong!

TatianaLarina Tue 12-Dec-17 18:41:50

I like Phoebe, Nathaniel and Joshua. Don’t like Ian prefer Oliver as middle name.

TatianaLarina Tue 12-Dec-17 18:42:50

Kiana Mai is awful. Could easily be Coleen Rooney’s new baby.

MancUnicorn Tue 12-Dec-17 19:07:12

Phoebe Anna

Nathaniel Oliver
Jamie Connor

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 12-Dec-17 19:22:15

Jamie Connor.
