Hi was wondering what your views were on this list of names?I already have an Ellis James 16 mnths thanks xx

I love Finn & Olivia

Cadmum Tue 27-Oct-09 13:49:16

I like (in no particular order):

Isobel (maybe Isabella to be shortened to Belle?)


Names are difficult to choose, aren't they?

Beau is lovely

Danny is awful.

Alexandra and James

They are the most classic, stylish names on your list with the potential for many, many nns! Great on a newborn, great on the elderly. Love them.

I know Mia and Olivia are common but it's hard to decide...You want something different but then also classy and not chavvy and not wacky(celeb like)so that they'll get bullied at school.I've got Ellis who is 16 months old and I don't hear of many Ellis's but at the same time I'm sure he won't be bullied because of the name.x

Like Georgina shortened to Georgie. Suprisingly uncommon.

Thanks for pointing this out.I must like similar names for both boys and girls which is cld sound too girly and silly;o))x

I like all your choices for boys!

For girls I prefer Mia or Isobel. I think 'Ellis and Isobel' sounds fine. Olivia is the No 1 UK girl's name so expect a few in her class!

LOVE Lola but I do wonder how it looks on top of a CV. Also when I've mentioned I love it other people always sing "her name was Lola, she was a showgirl' which isn't the best!

jellybeans Tue 27-Oct-09 17:02:16 it it
Alexandra...not keen, may get 'ali' it
Olivia...too popular but sooo popular
Georgie...don't like but Georgina is nice
Lola...don't like

James ...bit boring but ok

Jamieandhismagictorch Tue 27-Oct-09 17:03:03

Belle - nice, but too similar to Ellis ?
Alexandra - good name
Mia - nice, and prettier than Alexandra
Olivia - do not like
Isobel - nice - maybe a bit unimaginative ?
Georgie - no
Caitlyn - prefer Catherine
Lola - sorry, I hate this.

Danny - but would name Daniel
Beau - mm, not sure an adult would thank you for it
Finn - like
James - top choice

I just noticed that your ds's middle name is James. I wouldn't consider re-using a name (even a middle one) for a subsequent dc...

StephHaydock Tue 27-Oct-09 19:29:43

Like all your girls names except for Caitlyn.
Danny my fave of your boy's names.

Lola. Mia and Olivia are beautiful. Finn sounds cool
