Our baby boy is due to arrive any day now and we still can't decide on a name. Opinions please...(His middle name will be James and his big sister is Daisy).

we liked Roan for a boy but had 3 girls grin

Daniel is lovely though

little girl in ds1's nursery is called Rowan

Daniel is great but Daisy & Daniel?

Sarimillie Sun 17-Aug-08 20:07:12

Daniel! Daisy and Daniel fine, imo...

Rowanbrings to mind beardy weirdy archbish. and Daniel isso bloody dull!!!

Daniel is lovely. Rowan too but prefer Daniel and it goes well with James (and Daisy)

I prefer Daniel by far, but Daniel and Daisy ties you in to a D theme! If you have number three, will it have to be Delia or Damon?

Not that it matters really, when the two children are different sexes. I think if there is a master D and a Miss D, it is not so potentially problematic.

Go for Daniel!

Daniel everytime - was one of our favourites.

Brooke Shields has a Rowan and a Greer. Both girls. Fcuknig ohrrbiel.

I didn't mean Daisy and Daniel didn't go blush.

I meant both 'D's. We have two boy 'J's (not intentional) and a girl 'E' and are now having a fourth and DON'T WANT J's or E's

Thanks. Was a bit worried about the Daisy/Daniel thing. Wondered if it sounded a bit twee. Also worried that MIL would shorten Daniel to Danny then we'd have Danny and Daisy!

I love Rowan for girl or boy :0

edam Sun 17-Aug-08 20:35:45

Both are nice but I prefer Rowan. Although Daniel would save on nametapes.

Rowan is a type of tree, poisonous iirc.

So Daniel, all the way here.

tis lovely smile and takes away problem of unisex puzzle too!

PixieMoon Sun 17-Aug-08 21:44:46

I think Rowan is a lovely name, for a boy or a girl.

Don't like Daniel but it's not horrible.

Rowan the name of the lovely mountain ash- not at all poisonous, in fact you can make a preserve with the berries, native species good for wildlife. DS called Rowan, never been a prob re gender neutral.
