Jack Gordon
Clementine Joy
Noa Lili

I don't even want to consider it! Just the first half of your title has brought me out in a cold sweat!

lulabellarama Tue 24-Feb-09 16:46:03

Noah
Rory
Freddie
Harry
Talia
Sophia
Martha
Tabitha

They wouldn't get middle names

Ottoline

I've already used my four favourite boys' names on DS1 and DS2!

I have always quite liked Septimus and Octavia [fan of 'individual' names], so that would be 7 and 8 sorted out, assuming the sexes match. Unsure on 1-6 though. Would have to research and see if I like the latinate numeric equivalents.

It would depend what they looked like.

MrsSeanBean Tue 24-Feb-09 16:57:24

Ooh Rollo - that's a good'un!

I wouldn't be naming them. I'd be in the corner gibbering and counting the flecks in the wallpaper.

georgimama Tue 24-Feb-09 17:01:00

No idea but number eight would definitely be Octavian/Octavia. You'd have to.

I did once see a birth announcement for (I think) a twelfth child and they had gone to the (loopy) expense of naming all elven preceding children. The eighth was called Octavia and the tenth was called Decima!

sweetkitty Tue 24-Feb-09 17:02:36

I would have four girls and four boys (like it would matter shock)

Elodie Francesca
Matilda Jacqueline
Amelia Sophie
Claudia Stella

Elliot David
Logan John
Nathan Andrew
Matthew Anthony

georgimama Tue 24-Feb-09 17:02:39

Oooh, Septimus MrsSB! Good one.

Actually, I'd just do what the princes in Stardust were called:

Primus
Secondus
Tertius
Quartos
Quintas
Sextas
Septimus

there wasn't an eighth but would be Octavian!

schneebly Tue 24-Feb-09 17:02:48

MrsSeanBean Tue 24-Feb-09 17:08:06

I am loving some of the name choices here.

MrsSeanBean Tue 24-Feb-09 17:08:55

Er, I hadn;t seen Schneebly's post when I made my last remark grin

MamaG Tue 24-Feb-09 17:10:43

I'd call them all Ker-ching

mollyroger Tue 24-Feb-09 17:10:44

WorzselMummage Tue 24-Feb-09 17:13:16

Including the ones i already have

Grace
Violet
Iris
Clara

George
Samuel
Rory
Hugo

Fuck that though, 8 babies !

MrsSeanBean Tue 24-Feb-09 17:13:27

It would be wonderful (in theory of course) to have octuplets as you would have such a wide scope for name usage. You could use all your favoutites and not have to worry that some choices would never get used, or agonise over name (a) or name (b), or worry that your boy choice wouldn't get used if next and last DC is a girl etc... (Or is it just me who has silly concerns in this area?)

mollyroger Tue 24-Feb-09 17:13:51

what would be the odds of having 8 boys?
As I expect that would be my fate...

But if I could choose a ratio: 5 boys and 3 girls
