Casting about in desperation for a name for forthcoming baby I looked up saints days (I'm not religious). It worked out quite well for my 2 DS, days they were born were Julius and Ambrose (both nice I think), but unfortunately baby to be born in September would be Gregory - not much good for a girl.
Just an idea if anyone has run out of them like I have.

Gregory is a lovely. I love Julius too. .

There were be a separate list for the female saints on the same day.

I used to live in Spain so that was an idea I was more familiar with and I looked at my children's 'santos'. Well, I looked at all the names around about their due dates.

WWhat's the due date? I'll google for you and get the female saints for that day!

google "saints feast days" - usually there is 5+ for each day, on the catholic church website as they list them all, not just the more 'popular' ones.

is your dud date 21 sept? (found Gregorio under 21/9)

Only thing that comes up is Matea really. San Mateo. Eva and Eugenia were nice ones earlier in the month!

22 september, Silvano could be Sylvia or Silvana?

23, eugenio crops up again. Eugenia or Eugenie lovely.

Yes it will be the 3rd September, thanks Maggie.
Great list LadyofWaffle, you don't bump into most of those names every day. I suppose you need to know what the saints are associated with in case it is something horrible.
I'm off to google.
