Struggling a bit to come up with either boy or girl's names due in 5 weeks

for girls thinking of Juliet,Nicole or Rachel
boys Cormac, Aidan or Matthew

Any thoughts?
(thanks)

Oh I love Juliet and Rachel. Not so keen on Nicole though.

I like Cormac and Matthew too. Aidan is ok too, very popular in US, #1 there I think.

Juliet is a gorgeous name.

I like Rachel and Juliet

I like Matthew - a lot

I love Juliet. Rachel is a cool name too.

hennypennyhen Sun 18-Oct-09 20:39:34

Juliet, then Rachel
Matthew from the boy's list.

janeite Sun 18-Oct-09 20:39:49

I like Juliet and Matthew and Rachel to a lesser extent. I don't like Nicole or Aidan and hate Cormac, sorry.

raydabs Sun 18-Oct-09 22:11:57

Thanks good to get opinions Juliet and Matthew my favourites but DH not crazy about Matthew

Some other possible boys names are Mark or Marcus, Joseph or Cillian

Any views on these?

mathanxiety Sun 18-Oct-09 22:20:57

Juliet, Rachel and Cormac fab imo.

MaggieBehaveOutGuising Mon 19-Oct-09 09:53:34

I also love Marcus.

Juliet and Marcus sound like brother and sister. Unusual without being at all try-hard.

Joseph is OK. Don't like, don't dislike.
Cillian is ok. I like it, but I think English people hear the 'kill' inside it more loudly than I do. I know it means church, and I know a couple of Cillians. But I think, unless you're in Ireland.... NO>

Cormac is much more user-friendly in the UK. I really like that one.

Juliet and Marcus or Cormac are all excellent strong names.

Also nobody would say Sormac, but because Cillian is c followed by an I, they are going to say Sillian.

MaggieBehaveOutGuising Mon 19-Oct-09 09:54:59

ps, Marcus is more unusual than Matthew too, which for me would be a plus. I don't know if that's a concern for you thoug.h

raydabs Mon 19-Oct-09 10:59:03

As it goes am Irish and living in Ireland but this is great forum for feedback.

Definitely looking for unusual but not over the top. Just considering the odd Irish name to keep DH happy but not madly into them myself many of them have become a bit over used over here.

Marcus starting to grow on me...

i love nicole and rachel for a girl and Aidian or matthew for boy.

branflake81 Mon 19-Oct-09 11:19:55

I like Rachel the best, followed by Juliet. Not a fan of Nicole.

Aidan and Matthew are both nice but really dislike Cormac

Poohbearsmom Mon 19-Oct-09 11:20:08

My secondary sch was st.cillians never really liked da name... Not gone on cormac either... Wat about cian for a boy its a lovely irishy name i think, but is it a bit too popular? is there any eng boys name ya like and mayb use the irish version??

pranma Mon 19-Oct-09 12:13:47

Love Juliet and Rachel is very pretty too-Nicole is a bit Renault ad I think.
Juliet Rachel
Cormac Matthew
You cant go wrong with Matthew but Cormac is super.

mathanxiety Mon 19-Oct-09 15:26:07

Prefer Mark to Marcus. But Cormac is still my favourite of your suggestions.

spookypixiebroomstix Mon 19-Oct-09 16:16:28

Loving all your boys names! Cormac, Mark, Joseph, Aidan... - all fab.
Not so keen on the girls, but they are all fairly under-used at the moment which is always a plus imo!

jellybeans Mon 19-Oct-09 18:38:20

Juliet...not that keen, julia is better IMO
Nicole...love this
Rachel...not that keen, abit too dated
Cormac..not keen
Aidan...love it but not keen on Aid for short
Matthew...love it

aLittlePatience Mon 19-Oct-09 22:43:49

Good luck for 5 weeks time...
Juliet is my favourite, but Rachel is classically lovely.

diddl Tue 20-Oct-09 13:31:02

Juliet & Matthew

pointyhat Tue 20-Oct-09 13:39:39

I much prefer Julia.

Julia and Aidan. Cormac is a lovely sound too.

DownyEmerald Tue 20-Oct-09 13:44:45

Juliet and Matthew go together really well don't they? - anyone expecting twins?

raydabs Tue 20-Oct-09 16:11:06

No twins here! Thanks for all the input definitely helping to narrow things down.
