Hi
Partner and I have just come across this super board and need some help here. We don't know what we are having, have a few names in mind though still not overly happy with any...
Boys
1. Oscar (poss too popular)
2. Archie (as above)
3. Piran (unsure)
4. Marley
5. Sebastian
Girls
1. Izabela (think this is the one)
2. Liberty-Rose
3. Talula-Belle
4. Iola

We want something different but not pretentious, classic but not frumpy...Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Whichever you choose, please spell them properly. "Izabela"? "Talula"?

Izabela is really pretty. Not so sure about Piran (too close to Piriton for hayfever?). What about Hugo, Jude or Gregory for your boys list? smile

PS not sure if you have any other children but remember to think through all the poss nicknames and the like as little darlings turn into little horrors around 10!

Oscar and Sebastian fab.

Isabella fab (please not the way you've spelled it there).

Thanks all. Trying something slightly different with the spelling but obviously hasn't worked wink. This is our first little one so it's all pretty manic. Plain Rose is a good shout marmaduke!

We've thought of the nickname convention which is why we're a touch put of Oscar (Ozzy?)...

janeite Wed 06-May-09 21:14:17

Oliver instead of Oscar then?

I like the suggestion of Gregory: don't get many of those now but still quite a classic sounding name.

Laurence?
Toby?

i know a Marley - he's a gorgeous little boy - really sweet

Pastycrimper Wed 06-May-09 21:23:33

Good freind is Olly so unfortunately out, liking Esme, Isabella though is a very safe choice though and ticks all the right boxes, although more popular than we would have liked

Pastycrimper Wed 06-May-09 21:24:40

Hugo = great shout btw smile

Sebastian is lovely. Not a fan of nicknames but could be Zeb.

Isobella is gorgeous. Bella for short.

If you don't like popular, Isabella big no no, at least in my part of London. 4 in my dd ballet class, 2 in her class at school.

Arabella

Pastycrimper Wed 06-May-09 21:39:30

This could be the problem angrypixie, it's such a lovely name tho...

Evie could be added, Elliot's cute too, my hubby is a big 'Dexter' fan though I'm not liking it hmm.

angrypixie Wed 06-May-09 21:43:35

Evie snapping on the heels of Isabella

Tallulah gorgeous though and not v common, or how about Tabitha?

charmargot Wed 06-May-09 21:45:46

Wait til it comes and see what it looks like.

angrypixie Wed 06-May-09 21:46:24

I would have used Eliza or Tansy for dd2 if she hadn't turned out to be ds1 and then ds2
