I love Isaac Henry Somerset or Gulliver Henry Somerset

and

also Cecily Lamorna,

not too sure about the others, but go with what you like smile

Anglepoise Wed 09-Jul-08 10:42:43

I like Isaac and er Marmaduke blush

For the girls I like Cecily and Delilah and actually Loveday.

A few of them sound a bit made-up, but I'm all in favour of going jazz with middle names.

PestoMonster Wed 09-Jul-08 10:42:49

Yes, I like Demelza too, but for a first name rather than middle one.

dizzydixies Wed 09-Jul-08 10:43:26

would you not have Henry Marmaduke smile I love it!

Isa fabulous and Cecily and Pearl too

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Wed 09-Jul-08 10:43:37

I adore Loveday.

Was that a bond girl or something?

hetty37 Wed 09-Jul-08 11:07:43

Loveday is cornish I believe, I know two grown up ones. By the way my girls are called Esme, Lily and Posy

Mavornia Wed 09-Jul-08 13:35:22

Henry Somerset is fab

Also like Jago Somerset

For girls:

Cecily Merryn or Cecily Steren (means star in Cornish)

nooka Wed 09-Jul-08 13:49:45

I like Cecily and Gulliver best. Delilah Dandelion is fab, but I wouldn't call a real person Delilah!

minniedot Wed 09-Jul-08 14:21:34

Cecily and Gulliver

LaDiDaDi Wed 09-Jul-08 14:26:18

For boys I like Isaac and Mylor but I really like Gulliver. Please don't use Reg.

For girls I think Loveday Pearl is a fab name.

FlirtyThirty Wed 09-Jul-08 18:37:52

I don't like Reg, Mylor or Gulliver.
Isaac is ok; Marmaduke is a dog and Henry is great! So...Henry Isaac would be my choice from your boys names.

Not keen on Isa-Mae, Demelza, Lamorna or Dandelion (it's a weed and the scourge of many a garden!).

Cecily Pearl and Delilah are all sweet though. So..Cecily Pearl or Delilah Pearl for me.

Other Cornigh names I like are Cara and Tamsin.

OurHamsterisevil Wed 09-Jul-08 20:27:58

Love Delilah, and Gulliver and Mylor

LynetteScavo Wed 09-Jul-08 20:30:58

Isaac (Although I like Reggy and Marmaduke)

Cecily or Delilah

Hulababy Wed 09-Jul-08 20:33:01

From your choices:

Isaac Henry
Isa-Mae (don't like Demelza though)

CantSleepWontSleep Wed 09-Jul-08 20:48:05

Are all Cornish names like these?!

I like Isaac (if you're Jewish) or Marmaduke, and Delilah, but think the rest are terrible!

TodayToday Wed 09-Jul-08 20:55:23

I like Cecily, Demelza, Loveday and Gulliver from your list.

janeite Wed 09-Jul-08 20:55:36

Isaac or Cecily - imho the rest are awful, sorry. Delilah Dandelion sounds like something Gerri Haliwell would choose. Mylor sounds quite nice but looks a bit strange to my non-Cornish eye!

janeite Wed 09-Jul-08 20:56:13

Tamsin, as mentioned earlier, is lovely.

janeite Wed 09-Jul-08 21:22:42

Any use?

I really like Elowen and Rosen; never heard of either of those before.
