Any ideas for boy or girl to go with surname Nelson??? baby 2 5 days overdue and in my "emotional" state we can't get a decision at all!!. DS1 is Daniel....

Hardy, Emma or Mandela? grin

Sorry! Think most names go with Nelson, tbh, as long as they don't start or end with N.

Jack/Finlay/Matthew (just thinking of nice boys from ds's class!).

Charlotte, Grace, Tara, Olivia, Felicity... (ditto).

btw have you seen the MN baby name finder? Hours of fun... (on the right hand side of the page, towards the bottom, under 'Useful tools').

Had considered Matthew and Grace so will put them back on the list!! As for Horatio...not so keen so ... well you know what to do!wink
Yes DH and all his family's names end in N which doesn't sound right to me either!

Ariel Nelson for a girl.
Gino Nelson for a boy.

Actually I love aliterative names so wouldn't rule those out.

Actually I think Norma Nelson would be really cool. It has such a nice ring to it and yet is one of those names that is very uncommon without being too weird.

Norma Nelson will sound like Norman Nelson in everyday speech and get the poor child roundly teased.

Sorry, Spider...

Arthur - can shorten to Arf wink

How about Rose Nelson or Charlie Nelson?

kylester Sun 26-Jul-09 12:47:30

Like Rose... will think about that. DH will love Arf!!! must go and tell him........

I was going to suggest Gabriel. A very niche joke - sorry!
