Which are your favourite from my lists and do you have any to add?

I'd like a name that people on the most part will have heard of but preferably nothing too overused!


Beatrice, Edith, Winnie, Mabel, Thora, Gretchen


Reggie, Sidney, Emrys, Otto, Bertie, Theo

Winnie and Theo

Good luck! smile

Bertie and
Winnie or Mabel

I really love Gretchen, from the boys list, I like Theo and Otto.

LoveInTokyo Sun 17-Dec-17 13:57:02

From your list, Beatrice or Mabel for a girl, Theo for a boy.

You say "Winnie", I think "...the Pooh"!

Thanks folks, it's good to have some feedback, I'm so worried about 'naming regret' further down the line fhmm

LoveInTokyo Sun 17-Dec-17 13:59:13

Edith is nice as well actually.

I like Beatrice and Thora from the girls' list - I've never come across a Thora in real life. I particularly dislike Winnie, even if it's short for Winifred. And I think Gretchen is awful - sorry. Call her Margarete and Gretchen for a pet name.
Boys' list - I like Theo the most, but only if it's short for Theodore. I'm not keen on the others at all.

All the girls except for Gretchen and only Bertie on the boys.

Good luck and congratulations!!

Exciting times ahead.

ah don`t worry with our third we came home from hospital without a name. Found it.

LoveInTokyo Sun 17-Dec-17 14:05:56

If you like those Victorian style names you might also like:

Ida or Ada

Wilfred or Alfred

Hope it all goes well!

strawberrypenguin Sun 17-Dec-17 14:06:04

Edith from your girls list. Bertie or Sidney from your boys.

CuteOrangeElephant Sun 17-Dec-17 14:10:01

Mabel & Emrys from your list.



MiniAlphaBravo Sun 17-Dec-17 14:11:44

Edith and Bertie get my vote.
You still have time op, don't rush too much! Better to get it right

Navegante Sun 17-Dec-17 15:43:32

I like Beatrice and Otto. Beatrice and Theo are quite popular where I live

Mrsknackered Sun 17-Dec-17 15:43:35

Love your boys list. But Otto and Reggie are my favourites.

I can only think of Gretchen Weener from mean girls, so Edith or Thora.

ChocolateCrunch Sun 17-Dec-17 15:59:12

Mabel or Edith from the girls
Theo or Otto from the boys

I like Greta rather than Gretchen, and Bertie only as a nn for Albert

Do you like Alice, Eliza, Martha or Hugo, Leo, Oscar?

Chocolatecake12 Sun 17-Dec-17 16:05:39

From your list I like Beatrice and Sidney
Also similar - Stanley or Isaac for boys
Nancy or Imogen For girls
Good luck

CaptainChristmas Sun 17-Dec-17 16:10:52

I love Beatrice, Mabel and Otto!

Don’t like the others, but really love those three^^.

Lentilbaby Sun 17-Dec-17 16:17:39

Bea and Bertie - cute

Ikeameatballs Sun 17-Dec-17 16:22:34

I don't like Gretchen or Winnie but like all of your other girls names. I think Thora is the least frequently used currently.

I don't like Reggie or Embryos, Theo is lovely but very popular. I'd go with Bertie.

Ikeameatballs Sun 17-Dec-17 16:22:55

Emrys not Embryos!

PenelopePickle Sun 17-Dec-17 16:28:32

Good luck OP!

We have chosen Mabel for one of our twins due in the new year, Beatrice was also on the list as well as Bertie and Otto. You have good taste wink

I’m voting for Beatrice or Otto smile

Smoliver Sun 17-Dec-17 17:36:52

I like Beatrice and Thora from your girls list (Love Thora!). Theo and Reggie from your boys list, although I think those two names are quite popular at the moment.
