Any suggestions gratefully received.

LOVE Cecily!

How about:
Girls - Hermione / Yolande / Beatrice / Clover / Florence / Alice / Isobel / Rebecca / Esme

Boys - Benedict / Gabriel / Robin / William / Rupert / Laurence

No idea if any of these will appeal to you but I am liking them at the mo!

Cecily is gorgeous!

For a girl, Verity and for a boy Gregory.

or is that too much Y?

If so, I would like

Cecily and Beatrix
Cecily and Gaius

Cecily and Gwendolyn were characters in the importance of being ernest first! but I wouldn't go for that!

I love Verity but do think it's a bit too similar in sound.

OMG- you guys have way too much time on your hands!!

Thanks for liking Cecily- I had seriously considered Ernest Algernon and Gwendolyn to match a la 'Importance of Being Ernest', since we didn't think of that when we chose Cecily, but DH thinks it's going a bit too far.

Cecily is gorgeous, and Clemency or Leonora would be lovely sisters.wink
