Amber and Alice are nice.

I have the same problem - DH vetoes all of my girl choices (including Alice).

I would love to have the French name, Elodie but it won't go with our surname. I've wanted the name Elodie for years and years!

Beware made up names though - they're a bit naff!

How about Anya? I love love love this name grin

Or Tiegan?

Anouska is a lovely name


Have no idea of the kind of names you like but I too don't like the very traditional English names, Sophia and Bethany is the closest I'll get.

Have a look here for untradtional names. I know the website is for fairy names but a lot of them are very very pretty and not something you would hear everyday.

Hope this helps

I am loving Violet and Martha at the moment (in fact I am going to start working on my DH for Martha asap and we are not even TTC yet).

I don't like any of your names, sorry. I think summer and amber are a little bit too hippy try hard.

Well if he's vetoing almost all your choices and being so picky, what list has he put forward? He can't just say no without giving his own preferences.

How about Darcy or Dulcie?

Hi Lockets! I posted on here and realised I still had my silly namechange! grin

What about Guineveve? (have I spelt that correctly?) or Imogen? Or Dorothea? Just trying to think what may be perceived as 10th century.

Yes,I like Frances and Thea too.

It doesn't sound like we're on the right track here, Christiana.

Give us some clues as to what you're looking for. Do you want a name that is not just a girls name IYKWIM. Such as Summer or Amber (from your list)

Oh lockets it's such a pretty name!!

I'm not even pg yet but it's already on my list grin

TBH they're always Lizzie and Kitty so never get their full name unless I'm being very cross and teachery.

Names are so personal so I try not to get offended when everyone gives me the 'you've got no imagination' look esp when they then hear DS's name too!
