Hi, just wondering, still a long while to go but have been told 'boy' and have no idea what name I would use. DH likes 'James' and that's it. (Lucia 'loo-see-a', mexican family connections and I liked the meaning of the name)

Thank you smile

What about Felix or Reuben or even Theo?

crumpet Wed 08-Jul-09 18:56:50

hello crumpette, I'm crumpet!

I think a one syllable name would work well - no helpful suggestions though as I just wanted to say hi!

Hi crumpet! How funny! Do you have cravings for buttery crumpets at 3am? smile blush...

Thanks oopsacoconut- DH says Felix is ''the cat'', he doesn't like Reuben (was on my list for DD before she arrived), I think he likes Theo though...

My brain has turned to hormonal mush already so I thought it may be best if I think of names before it's too late and I can only think of ridiculous ones. Poor child!

i like the name Khalid (its arabic) and means eternal.

i also like Dylan, Caleb, Kieran, Nathaniel (means gift of god)

Lucia would go nicely with Dante, Raphael or Nico

TotallyAndUtterlyPaninied Wed 08-Jul-09 19:24:47

Is Lucia a girl or boy?

I would go with Caleb.

They don't really need to 'match' as such though because they'll grow up and get married etc.

How about Luca/Lucas


Izel and Armand are both Mexican and nice.

What about Gabriel

dizzydixies Wed 08-Jul-09 19:29:27

oh Gabriel is nice, so is Gideon

TotallyAndUtterlyPaninied Wed 08-Jul-09 19:30:12

How about Elliot?

I like Rafferty

crumpette Wed 08-Jul-09 19:37:36

Please keep suggestions coming!! grin Lucia=girl, yes. I have loads of girly names that I love and, er, none for a boy.

I love most of your suggestions actually!

Please anyone, any suggestion is welcome. I think I should steer clear of Luca et al though, but other than that-am v grateful.

Hi Crumpette - i've sort of 'seen' you on a certain ante-natal thread, i think, although i rarely get a chance to post <not stalking you, honest!>

Congrats on finding out it's a boy - I've got my 12 week scan next monday <chews fingernails>

as for name suggestions, seeing as you've already got a Mexican inspired name for your dd, what about either Gael or Diego?! grin I suppose they mightn't 'translate' that well over here though....

crumpette Wed 08-Jul-09 21:54:41

waves at totalmisfit and grin to lynettescavo maybe you are right!

Yeah they told me boy a few weeks ago- I'd have preferred to wait until a bit later but DH said 'boy or girl' and the sonographer was overly keen to find out.

Anyway my long list of girly names has been put to one side and am really really struggling. I know I have a while to go but now I know what it is, sorry, he is, I think I should at least like a few names!

Out of the ones mentioned I think I am liking Jacob, Nathaniel, Elliot, Gabriel, and love Dante, Raphael and Nico (though fear vetoing from OH!!)

oh totalmisfit Diego is one of the spanish forms of James I think, do you think that'll sway DH?!!
