Harriet Ruth is a perfect name imho.

Stephen and Arthur are not really doing it for me, sorry.

Edmund?
Luke?
Matthew?
Vincent?
Oliver?
Theodore?

Alexander is going on the list. I also like Vincent though not sure dp will.

I love Daniel but dp won't have it.

George would be a contender for me but it is the name of one of dd's dolls and that really puts me off now.

Henry is good.

William is a lovely name but for family name reasons I'm not keen on using it personally iyswim.

Aidan
Reese
Nathaniel
Nate
Peter

Lawrence?
Austin?

Erica or Lara for girls?

LaDiDaDi Sun 14-Jun-09 17:14:09

Peter is good.

No to Erica and Laura is dd's name so no to Lara as well.

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 17:17:48

Laurence is a fab name but no good if you have a Laura.

Sebastian?
Dominic?
Benedict?
Gabriel?

LaDiDaDi Sun 14-Jun-09 17:20:54

I like Benedict but I just can't imagine me having a child called Benedict iyswim.

I think I'm just very hard to please.

Edie
Elizabeth
Lily
Evie
Ava
Bella
Catherine
Florence

LaDiDaDi Sun 14-Jun-09 17:27:20

Eliza should be on my list.

Love Catherine but have a very good friend called Catherine so not sure about using it as anything other than a middle name.

Will be back later, dd calling me to do a puzzle with her.

Thanks for all of your suggestions so far.

I really like your girls list, especially Nina and Elsa!

What about these boys names:

Quentin
Benedict
Tobias

Lewis
Noah

Patrick
Timothy
Marcus

Eliza is lovely and Susannah too.

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 20:00:49

I like Tobias too and love Toby.

Quentin just makes me think of The Famous Five, which is a shame, as it could be a v cool name!

jkklpu Sun 14-Jun-09 20:03:13

I love Nina and Like Elsa, too, which is more unusual just now. How abour Edmund instead of Edward/Edwin? or Eamonn, which is the Irish form?

LaDiDaDi Sun 14-Jun-09 20:18:10

Quentin is cool but sounds silly with surname.

Tobias/Toby is nice. I also like Patrick and Noah.

PaulaYatesBiggestFan Sun 14-Jun-09 20:41:28

Susannah is my current fave name <good taste emotion> wink

love Arthur but Edwin VERY cool
