Like Violet.

audley Fri 11-Sep-09 13:24:57

mmm, boys list a little short. Any suggestions to go with DS Barnaby?
Opinions and suggestions for the girls too please smile

audley Fri 11-Sep-09 13:25:26

thanks diddl, that was quick!

Broccopolli Fri 11-Sep-09 13:27:35

Arthur's ok.

Out of your girls names I like Iris, Josephine or Violet

Broccopolli Fri 11-Sep-09 13:30:14

Names to go with Barnaby - George, Theodore, Sebastian?

Nancy66 Fri 11-Sep-09 13:31:55

Not wild about Arthur - it's ok.

Your girl's names are great. Violet would be my favourite

audley Fri 11-Sep-09 13:32:23

Thanks Broccopolli, B's mn is George! I like Theodore and Edward but worry about the Teddy nn with Barnaby Bear links...Sebastian is lovely but perhaps a little smart for us!

audley Fri 11-Sep-09 13:32:57

Any boy suggestions Nancy66?

I like the name Arthur.

Not keen on the girl's list. Clementine is best of them.

What about Barnaby and Hugo or Barnaby and Rupert?

audley Fri 11-Sep-09 13:50:12

Hi frazzled, Hugo was on our shortlist for B, but I'm not so keen anymore and Rupert is another Bear name! I rather like Hector and Jasper but DH says no angry. He likes Pablo, which wouldn't suit me at all. Nice name but we have not a drop of Spanish blood between us, so it feels wrong to me.

I like Clementine and Josephine from your girls list.

Violet doesn't 'travel' well enough imo - but this may not bother you though.

Love Barnaby. Think it goes very well with Hector, Quentin and Edward.

theagedparent Fri 11-Sep-09 14:20:42

I like all of your names apart from Xanthe. Violet is the best.

Theteathings Fri 11-Sep-09 15:04:36

not keen on Xanthe.

from that list I would pick Clementine/Clem and Iris.

Not Arthur, how about

Tobias/Toby
Hector
Rufus

Like Josephine and Clementine, also Constance. How about Clement if a boy? Or Joseph? Love Hector, too, btw. Milo? Arlo?

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Fri 11-Sep-09 18:32:34

I love Violet.

Is Xanthe a type of gum or something?

Jeb
Jed
Rory
Jock
Fergus

I like all your girl's name except Josephine, which I find a bit severe. My favourites are Iris and Violet. How about Nancy, Polly, Ottilie, Maude.
I like Arthur too. All the boy's names that I was going to suggest have already been mentioned. Albert maybe or Gabriel?

nlo Thu 17-Sep-09 16:05:51

I like Iris

audley Thu 17-Sep-09 17:24:44

Thanks for your replies.
I told my BF what was on my shortlist and she said I may as well just go for Apple hmm, she seems to think my choices are all wacky and said why can't you go for something like Catherine or Emily!!!

Fimbo Thu 17-Sep-09 17:26:38

Christopher shortened to Kit would be cool
Likewise Patrick to Patch

Violet is my mil's name and she hates it.

Miranda
Susannah

I dont think your choices are wacky. All the girls names are nice, though im not that keen on Arthur.
