OK, we have quite a few girls names we like but are struggling with boys names.
So far we keep coming back to Oliver and William (prob abbreviate to Billy) although I rather like Peter too.
I have concerns about Oliver and William being mega popular and we got caught out with DS's name which is still apparently only number 64 in the popularity charts (Freddie since you ask) but we know absolutely loads! We thought we were being a bit different......but no.
For girls we like Matilda, Clara, Emmeline and I am trying to sell Kitty to DH.
Middle name for family reasons would be Arthur for a boy and Alice for a girl.
I love Peter and William (in fact my best friend who sadly passed away was called Peter Willliam!). i think Peter is such an underused classic, (I think it is something like 140 in the charts). William is lovely - has great nn potential (I love Bill myself!) Do not like Oliver.
hellokitty - sorry I shouldn't have said "in Germany" as I really don't know, but round our way there are lots of Peters - I know four.
It's quite a job trying to get an unusal but classic name though. I was a tiny bit miffed to be told my DS1's name is massive in Poland right now - it's another underused classic here - P h i l i p. (I have only ever come across two - one who lived two doors away from us and one we met in a queue at Legoland)
