Max and Isabella

I only like Layla. Beautiful and underused.

The others are very popular and might soon sound dated imo.

@Poppydaisies I love Layla too. Seen a few negative comments online about it being used when white British rather than Middle Eastern and wasnโ€™t sure if that would be a common issue that people had with it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ A nice name is a nice name to me lol, Iโ€™m not hugely fussy on origin!

@Onestepup Middle names are already sorted so will strictly be a first name off of those lists ๐Ÿ˜Š I adore Charlotte ๐Ÿ˜Š DH canโ€™t stand it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

Max for the boy. Charlie is babyish.
I like all your girl names. Isabella is nice but a little frilly and is a style thatโ€™s going out of fashion. Isabel is better. Poppy I like a lot. Layla is nice too. I generally prefer it as Leila.

Charlie was incredibly popular maybe ten or twelve years ago, so there are huge numbers of them about. I do find myself doing a bit of an internal eye-roll when I hear yet another Charlie being called by his mum. Iโ€™m afraid I am really not keen. I always think of it as an insult: heโ€™s a right Charlie. Charles is fantastic though, and carries so much more weight.

Max or Layla

RWK29 Tue 28-Jul-20 16:44:08

Thanks @Whatsyourflava and @Ricekrispie22 ๐Ÿ˜Š I love Miles but DH isnโ€™t a fan lol.

I also think Delilah is beautiful but we are Scottish and after having thrown this name out there a few times in hypothetical baby name chats with friends/family there seems to be a huge problem with pronunciation which annoyed me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Some say โ€œDel-eye-lahโ€ and some say โ€œDel-iy-lahโ€ ๐Ÿ™ˆ
Imogen is also lovely but I know quite a few around here at the moment ๐Ÿ˜Š
