sorry they're a bit boring

My initial reaction would be Milly or Isobel and George or Oscar! Some lovely names though. Good luck! Xx

The only girls one I really like is Matilda and the boys I like Oscar and Felix.

Iklboo Mon 18-Aug-08 13:30:22

I adore Milly & Isabel, Noah & Oscar

Girls - Alexandra and Tess are both gorgeous. Milly, Matilda, Isabel - a bit played out in current times, but that may not bother you? Catherine - not to my taste, but classic.

Boys - Really don't like any of them but Leon, sorry!

MrsMattie Mon 18-Aug-08 13:32:06

Oh - like Estelle or Estrella, but Estella sounds a bit made up.

Alexandra - wanted this for my dd but overruled by dh

Only really like Noah from boys names. Used to love Finlay but now all I think of is the fire engine!

Like Matilda and Alexandra for the girls.

Noah, George and Finlay for the boys.

Estella - Dont really like
Tess - Is ok but sounds astho its short for something
Matilda- Might get shortened to Tilly
Catherine- Ok bit old fashioned imo.
Milly- is ok, not great
Alexandra- nice, i like it shortened to Alex for a girl.
Isabel- Dont like , also there are too many around.

Noah- Dont like
Leon- HATE
George -Nice
Oscar- dont like
Finlay - I like this one but prefer it spelt Finley.

This is only my opinion i dont mean to offend anyone.

like Estelle......but that is my dd name and still quite unusual thankfully. but Estella is a bit of a strange version

Like Noah too

seeker Mon 18-Aug-08 18:41:53

Why not go for Theresa and Matilda shortened to Tess and Milly to give her more options?

Reginaphilangy Mon 18-Aug-08 19:46:04

Estella - really don't like.
Tess - lovely.
Matilda - don't like this.
Catherine - lovely and love Cate as nn.
Milly - gorgeous! but prefer the spelling Millie
Alexandra - like alexandra and nn ali. absolutely can't stand the nn alex!
Isabel - lovely. very popular.

Noah - don't like this.
Felix - really like felix.
Leon - don't like this.
George - great name!
Oscar - like this.
Finlay - really don't like this.

My favourites from your list are Milly or Isabel for a girl and George, Felix or Oscar for a boy.

think they are all lovely. Only thing I;d say is that Isabel is really really popular a the moment and she is likely to be one of 4 or 5 in any given class in the future!
