Here's the shortlist of baby names I'm considering that I generated with Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder. Let me know what you think.

Elias is lovely
Jasper is what we call wasps in our family so not keen on that

don't like either of the girls names

I love Elias. Geraldine is okay but Prunella is awful, sorry.

Tidey Sun 23-Aug-09 16:13:53

The only one I like is Elias.

Really like Elias. Not so keen on the others, but quite like Geraldine.

I hope you really want to know grin

I like Elias, but (sorry), do not like any of the other names

Jasper reminds me of a golden labrador.

Prunella - whilst Prunella Scales is a fine actress, it does remind me of something you might take to help with constipation

Geraldine is OK, but puts me in mind of a bossy head girl

I love both of your boys names but not your girls names. You couldn't possibly call a baby Prunella.

Sorry, going with the crowd here. I think your boys' names are fine, but I'm not over-keen on the girls' names.

Geraldine sounds a bit masculine in my opinion, and Prunella sounds shrivelled and wrinkly! Although, the NN 'Pru' is kind of nice.

Just my honest opinion. I think most kids end up suiting their name no matter how it sounds when you first hear it - people accept it after a while.

If you love the names or if they hold special meaning for you, go for it. But don't expect everyone to love it right away!

I like both the boys names, but neither og the girls names.

Boys' names are great, love them both, know one Jasper and one Elias, but don't like either of the girls' names -- Geraldine was very popular in Ireland in the sixties, and they are mostly Ger or Gerry now. I don't know why Prunella would appeal to anyone.
