Hi all,

AF showed for me today so I'm trying to remain positive let's do something a bit different! Choose your top 5 baby first names for a girl and top 5 for a boy to give people inspiration! (Put them in order of favourite)

Girls - my top 5 are:

Scarlet
Paige
Myla (Pronounced me-la)
Esmé
Poppy

Boys - my top 5 are:

Logan
Archie
Olly
Hunter
Chase (undecided on this actually) haha

@silverliningclouds

Love them especially Oscar for a boy might have to swap out chase for Oscar , didn't even think of that name and I love it !

Your girls names are so so pretty ❤️

@Superstar41 thank you. We've always wanted an Adelaide if we had a girl and would shorten it to Addie.
We wanted Oscar the whole way along last time but changed our minds last min!

@silverliningclouds I love Addie !

What did you choose instead of Oscar ? smilesmile

If you're pronouncing it MEE-LA then spell it like that or Mila. Myla is definitely MY-LA (I have friends with these names for their kids.

@Superstar41 I really struggle with boys names out of all my list OH will only consider Archer (which I don't mind because it's my fav) but he has no names to add 🤦🏻‍♀️ so I'm searching high and low

Girls names he loves my top two so that's easy

@Superstar41 I hate it when someone ruins a name for you! Savannah is lovely!

I’ve always like James but my OH is called James and I am not having a Junior!! One of him is bad enough 😂

BabyDust13 Tue 19-May-20 14:49:02

@Superstar41 my OH is a massive marvel fan we have a hamster called Domino for that very reason I quite like Loki but he's not sold

Superstar41 Tue 19-May-20 15:02:58

@buckingmad I know I'm going to have to convince him ;) James is a lovely name !! Haha James Jr doesn't sound too bad ;)

@BabyDust13 he wants to call a baby boy Thor I had to put my foot down 🤣 Loki isn't too bad tho not a fan of the character ;)
