Ok, finally narrowed it down to 2 girls names and 2 boys names. We may be influenced on the day by what baby looks like etc but just wanted to get some MN views on my choices.

Boys: Harry or Freddie (Fred)

Girls: Lucy or Harriet

Any thoughts please

Harry or Harriet.

I like Lucy. My name is a short version of a longer name (the longer one being on my birth certificate) and I really like the fact that my parents gave me the choice to use the longer name when I grew up. Therefore, I would go Frederick and call him Fred/Freddie or Henry then call him Harry. it might be quite hard to have credibility as an adult with a cutsie name. Also, with Freddie, I do think of that short comedian...

Harriet - is DDs name and I love it.

Freddie - just sounds cute and naughty to me - although that might not be that good if you don't want a cute naughty kid!

Freddie, agree with Frederick as a first name and Freddie as a nickname though, and Lucy

SJLTM Thu 18-Sep-08 17:16:42

It has to be Lucy as I have one ! and Harry for a boy as that was my No 1 but dd3 was a girl !

Harry (well, Henry actually, so that in later life he can choose whether he likes the abbreviation or not) and Harriet.

FairLadyRantALot Thu 18-Sep-08 22:42:59

Not Freddy but Frederic is lovely (ds3 was almost called that...but people were shortening it immidiately after being told....saying oh Freddie is lovely hmm...that put me off, obviously not keen on Fred and Freddie)
Like Harry and Lucy

Or there's Alfred instead of Frederic(k)
Prefer Lucy to Harriet

I am very surprised at the number of people prefering Lucy to Harriet!
Harriet is beautiful and (sorry but) Lucy is a little dull!

Harry for a boy rather than Freddie
