Hello my name is Libby. Married to Andy we have 4 children and are expecting our 5th in November (how did that happen) I have posted this with help from my dear friend and wondered if you could help me.

WE found naming all our children really easy, in fact we liked so many names that we were spoilt for choice but for some reason all of us are stumpted. Not keen on our youngest's suggestion of Milo or Fizz haha!

Can anyone help, we currently have a Henri, Cecily, Violetta and a Mimi (actual name Annone)

I don't like very modern names I prefer quite old fashioned but don't mind if they are quite well used if you know what I mean. I quite like Constance for a girl and Hugo for a boy but my hubby detests those. Typical!

I have been reading threads for quite a while now and felt compelled to post one myself as we are having such a hard time in agreeing anything.
Many thanks in advance

Hey, Thanks you for the messages already.
Mimi's middle name is Florence and Cecily's is Emilia. Wow, great minds think alike. I am hoping we should have found his or her name by this evening.

How do you add a smiley face by the way?

just type [ smile ] or : ) (but without the spaces)

hmmm will have to think of some more. we had loads of girls names... but only the 3 boys!

Isabelle / Isabella
Alexander / Alexandria

They were the ones that sprung to mind & I thought 'fitted' with the others !

Now I am getting excited! Perhaps it's too unusual. I am sat here with a pen and paper taking notes
I think this baby is a boy but hubby thinks it will be a girl.

thanks whizz and everyone. Yes I think part of the reason we can't agree is finding a name that sort of 'slots in' with everone elses too.

libby, we got our names from watching credits on telly/films, i think you should watch some historical drama type programmes for a name!
