These are the two names I'm thinking of:

Freya Anne for a girl (Anne after my late aunt)


Caden for a boy - not sure how to spell it yet though (Kayden, Caiden....).

Not sure of a middle name to go with it though.

any thoughts?

Anyone know a Caden?

FimboGotAxed Sun 26-Oct-08 10:31:16

Freya - yes

Don't like Caden personally.

PuppyMonkey Sun 26-Oct-08 10:31:37

Ooh no,I don't like either of them sorry.

ForeverOptimistic Sun 26-Oct-08 10:31:41

I love Freya it is a very pretty name. I don't like Caden at all, it is very `now` and will definitely date.

MamaG Sun 26-Oct-08 10:32:16

Freya is pretty

Caden - agree its very "now" and will date, I don't like it sorry

surprisenumber3 Sun 26-Oct-08 10:37:13

hmmm......I'm pretty sure it will be a boy and I like Jack but already have a Jacob so too similar.

I like Callum, Cameron, Harrison...DH doesn't like any of them!

Goes well with Jacob.

Sorry , but Caden is a name I often hear in association the words "get 'ere now you little shit". I do like freya though.

Not Caden, and absolutely definitely not Kayden.

Freya is nice.

What about Joshua if you like Jacob?

Jack and Ethan
Jack and Matthew
Jack and Harry
Jack and Edward

lol different witch - no, I'm not one to talk like that!

I love Ethan but we already have one in the family.

DH and I also have a Joseph and a Daniel, so old fashioned bible type names are good.

I have mentioned Elijah and Reuben but DH says he doesn't like those either!

MamaG Sun 26-Oct-08 10:42:56

Joseph, Daniel, Jack and Charlie

Joseph, DAniel, Jack and Matthew



Do it like that, you will see how the names flow

Caden really doesn't go well with those 3 names imo

What about Isaac? that's much less likely to have negative connotations. Plus it has a nice meaning- laughter.

elsiepiddock Sun 26-Oct-08 10:44:06

Agree, Caden vv bad.

Freya is OK, but I know at least 3.

ForeverOptimistic Sun 26-Oct-08 10:44:53

Dylan (to give a 50/50 split of Js and Ds)

I like some of the names that you have already suggested.

surprisenumber3 Sun 26-Oct-08 10:45:04

yeah I've mentioned that to DH too and he's not keen - saying that, he didn't like Jacob either but now he's 4 it's kind of grown on him, lol

I have definitely gone off Caden now!

Bloodystumperlicious Sun 26-Oct-08 10:46:23

Love Freya, it's on my "next" list. But not Caden.

differentWitch Sun 26-Oct-08 10:47:02

David, then?
Joseph, Daniel, Jacob and David.

MamaG Sun 26-Oct-08 10:47:24

oh yes, Christopher is a great name. Tiff is a fab shortening (IMO) rather than Chris

surprisenumber3 Sun 26-Oct-08 10:48:15

Christopher is XH, lol, don't think that would go now well!

ForeverOptimistic Sun 26-Oct-08 10:48:16

If you like Caden, how about Caleb? Similar ring to it but more established.

surprisenumber3 Sun 26-Oct-08 10:49:25

I love Ethan, really love it. Does it matter if there's already one in the family?

kittywise Sun 26-Oct-08 10:49:34

Freya is ok but very very 'common' caden is a made up name and is pants

MamaG Sun 26-Oct-08 10:49:51

LOL, avoid Christopher then grin

I sniggered inappropriately at a pig on TV called Rachel last night - DH's ex's name. He just rolled his eyes at me!!
