Baby name inspiration needed

(22 Posts)
Amyjenks1 Thu 22-Mar-18 10:48:50

I’m really struggling to find any baby name inspiration!!

We don’t know the gender of Bub but I just have a feeling it’s a little boy and I can’t find any boys names I like! What do you think of:

Charlie
Leo
Albie
Reuben

And I really like the name Lovella for a girl, but maybe a middle name?

Leo and Reuben are lovely! How about;

Isaac
Eli
Felix
Kit
James
Henry
Elliot/Elliott
Sebastian?

I’m not at all keen on Lovella I’m afraid. Too much like novella and Cruella (De Ville) for me (sorry).

How about Leonora?

Albie is lovely as are the others it's just a little more unexpected.

MammieBear Thu 22-Mar-18 12:02:39

Lovella is unusual, you might also like Lovisa...

Out of your boys names I like Leo and Albie.
I don't like Lovella. It sounds like a condom.

user1498549192 Thu 22-Mar-18 12:47:07

I like Leo, Reuben and Charlie. I'm not keen on Albie personally. I'll suggest:

Arlo
Theo
Gabriel
Seth
Ethan
Arthur
Harry
Oliver
Jude
Max
Jasper

I have to admit I'm not keen on Lovella; like a previous poster, it sounds too much like novella to me. However, it's your baby, so if you love it, use it! smile

I like Leo and Charlie.

For a girl Alba is either dawn or white depending on whether you take from Spanish or Irish (Ailbhe) and I prefer that to Albie for a boy.
Lovella is terrible. Imo. But do you like Lavinia? Lavinia is a bit flowery for my tastes but it occurs to me that if you like Lovella you might like Lavinia.

SBlonde Thu 22-Mar-18 12:52:46

Out of your choices Leo is a nice name. Here's some more going off what I've seen being popular/trending recently
Theo / Thiago
Bennett
Finn
Logan
Everett
Noah
Rafferty

Lavinia for a girl?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 22-Mar-18 13:49:50

Leo and Reuben from your list, both nice.
I prefer Lovisa.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 22-Mar-18 16:46:04

If you like Lavinia, you may also like Laverne.

Reuben is okay.
Charlie is very plain and boring.
Leo is lovely.
Albie is very twee and babyish- I can't imagine an adult Albie.

Lovella isn't to my taste. What about:
Lila
Lola
Louisa

diddl Thu 22-Mar-18 17:08:52

I really like Leo & Reuben.

Not keen on Lovella.

Is Ella still very popular?

Loveday?

KatnissK Thu 22-Mar-18 17:23:37

Really like Leo (was one of my top names when pregnant with DS) and Charlie from your list. Not too sure on Lovella as a first name to be honest.

MadMaryBoddington Thu 22-Mar-18 18:07:09

Leo would be my pick of those.

Not keen on Lovella. How about Eulalia or Lilith?

MikeUniformMike Thu 22-Mar-18 19:52:29

Lovella sounds like an intimate lubricant or, as pp wrote, a condom.
Albie is awful sorry.
Reuben is a bit drippy.
Charlie and Leo are both excellent.

LoveInTokyo Fri 23-Mar-18 00:00:47

Not sure about Lovella.

How about Louella or Rosella?

pipilangstrumpf Fri 23-Mar-18 08:18:42

Reuben is nice or how about Rowan or Quentin?

Not keen on Lovella but how about Lena or Lavinia?

MinisterforCheekyFuckery Fri 23-Mar-18 20:23:38

I like Reuben or Leo.

Not keen on Lovella though..reminds me of those creepy Loveabella dolls.

Threeandabit Sat 24-Mar-18 21:34:28

I like Reuben.

How about: -

Alec
Carl / Karl
Dexter
Gareth
Ross
André

Much prefer Harley to Charlie

Don't like Lovella. I think it sounds like the make of a doll.

Other suggestions: -

Pollyanna
Liberty
Verity
