Thought Id try and get it all in the title, just to make sure!
Thats it really, we have our gorgeous ds, Noah Gabriel Joseph. Stupidly we thought we may perhaps struggle to concieve again, and whether it was the euphoria of having had a baby or just dh's stubborn streak, he ended up with 2 middle names. Now I am delighted to be having another bambino but in the complete predicament of choosing not only a first name which I love as much as Noahs, but 2 extra blummin names as well.
If bump is a girl, we like Alice, Amelie, Matilda, Imogen.....but not all together, and dont know which I like best or which goes nicely with Noah, or which middle names....I need some more ideas.
If bump tis a boy, we like Felix, Isaac, Zachary, Oscar, and possibly William as a middle as it is my fathers name. But I just dont know and need help!!! Ideas, suggestions - honesty is more than welcome.
Try as I might I cant seem to find any other biblical names I like even though I would like some biblical reference in the girls middle name. I was thinking Gabriella as a link to dh, but is it too long?
My hormones must be off the chart, i cant believe im typing to the world at half past 10 on a sunday night looking for inspiration!!!!!
help please ladies xx

hi thank u! glad someones out there. I do really like Alice and Oscar was always my fave for a boy last time, until my father in law said it sounded like a greyhounds name!!!!angry
It put me off completely when my mum announced they had named a baby Oscar in Eastenders. That was the end of the road for me! but i still like it, cant help myself, even though it is getting so popular. Do you like Felix? Ii never thought i would but I do. Now, Martha, theres a nice name id not thought of before. You're good at this. Think i saw a thread of yours earlier, were you considering victor/hector? When are you due?

I'm not due till 15th December although everyone keeps informing me that first babies are often 10 days late so it looks more like Xmas day!

I love Oscar and think I like it enough not to be put off by Eastenders, popularity and dog comments. Felix is very nice too!

oh congratulations!! you may well be having the christmas day baby then, Good luck sweetheart. I was 14 days over with Noah, he didnt want to come out! had to be induced in the end. Am hoping this one will stay in long enough for me to get my tree up but then im happy. We havent mentioned Felix to anyone whatsoever, im sure they will all hate it and try to put me off, but theyve done that once before and i want it to be Our decision. If you like Oscar you stick with it. I think its a beautiful name. I still need much help though!! Are you on the december antenatal thread then? ive only just joined it.

Wotcha pcm.

I have a Mathilda Beatrice Rose, so understand the two middle names thing.

Shall I just tell you my favourite names in the faintest hope something leaps out?



William is a good, strong middle name (Dh's middle name). Oscar is very popular and I think Felix might date quickly, will definitely date a ds born now I think. I very much like Isaac.

Now, how are you?

Tell me everything.

lg&t knows lots of names because she has 27 7 children and most of them are represented here. What about ds3 though, he has a beautiful name? And the dts?

Yes yes. But i thought a Jonah and a Noah was a bit too similar grin

Jacob and Samuel nice but not mad enough i don't think...
