So we have a yellow bump I'm due 27th Oct. Although a yellow bump we are for some reason convinced we are having a boy. As a result are really strugling on girls names.


Stanley - Would be shortented to Stan
Finley - Shortened to Fin

Finley was our fav but think its a bit common. Stan is really growing on me.


Aisha - When trying to concive we always said if we had a girl she would be Aisha but now we have said it to a few people and not got the best reactions

Eve - My dad loves this name I quite like it too

Let me know which ones you think. More sujestions would also be welcomed too especially girls names.

Stanley= Flat Stanley
Finley= Finley the Fire Engine

I like Finley and Eve FWIW

Finley and Eve

Finley and Eve.

Eve is particularly nice, not common but in no way wacky. If that helps.

Out of your choices I too would go for Finley and Eve.

How about Ava rather than Eve? Like Evie but its very popular now.

what is a yellow bump?

donandpea Thu 30-Jul-09 12:34:37

A yellow bump means we do not know the sex of our baby

I love Eve and Stanley! They are both so cool and timeless!

I know LOADS of Finley/Finlay's at the moment, so I'd stay clear of that one.

Finlay/Finley is very popular atm. You need to chose a name that you (and dp of course!) really love, not your Dad, imvho smile

Stanley & Eve are a good choice

donandpea Thu 30-Jul-09 13:32:24

Oh glad I'm getting some thumbs up on Stanley as I relly like.

schmo Thu 30-Jul-09 13:45:33

I personally like Finlay and Eve (also like Eva).

A friend nearly picked Stanley for her little boy and really really regrets not having it!

Stanley and Aisha

kitsmummy Thu 30-Jul-09 15:17:50

Is Aisha pronounced Asha? If so, I like it.

Prefer Stan. Finlay's quite common these days, as is Eve and Evie

I like Eve a lot and don't mind Aisha.
Don't like the boys' names though, sorry.

NotanOtter Thu 30-Jul-09 15:24:43

sorry but no to the boys names here too

Aisha great - lots and lots of eves out there

gladders Thu 30-Jul-09 15:28:23

LOVE Stanley / Stan - this is top of my list if there is ever a ds2. it's the only name i heard after namng ds1 that i wished i'd used...

Fin - is quite sweet - but vvv popular round here

Aisha - don't like, there'd be all kinds of spelling issues?

Eve - sweet but again v popular. Eva/Ava mor unusual?

MaybeAfterBreakfast Thu 30-Jul-09 15:30:07

What about Fintan or Finbar, which can both be shortened to Fin? Finley = Fire Station (and a bit too popular here).

Eve too popular here (also Evie)

Don't like Aisha at all.

Stanley could be quite cool.

HollyBunda Thu 30-Jul-09 15:37:32

sorry, Stanley is awful.
I like Eve though.

teddygirl23 Thu 30-Jul-09 15:38:54

finn and eve sorry dont like the others.

LyraSilvertongue Thu 30-Jul-09 15:41:18

Stan and Eve. Aisha is a bit chavvy.

pointydog Thu 30-Jul-09 15:42:46

Eve is lovely.
