And please leave any other suggestions 😊 surname is a 3 syllable β€˜M’ name.

Boys: Max & Charlie
Girls: Isabella, Poppy & Layla

I only like Layla. Beautiful and underused.

The others are very popular and might soon sound dated imo.

@Poppydaisies I love Layla too. Seen a few negative comments online about it being used when white British rather than Middle Eastern and wasn’t sure if that would be a common issue that people had with it πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ A nice name is a nice name to me lol, I’m not hugely fussy on origin!

@Onestepup Middle names are already sorted so will strictly be a first name off of those lists 😊 I adore Charlotte 😊 DH can’t stand it πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

Max for the boy. Charlie is babyish.
I like all your girl names. Isabella is nice but a little frilly and is a style that’s going out of fashion. Isabel is better. Poppy I like a lot. Layla is nice too. I generally prefer it as Leila.

Charlie was incredibly popular maybe ten or twelve years ago, so there are huge numbers of them about. I do find myself doing a bit of an internal eye-roll when I hear yet another Charlie being called by his mum. I’m afraid I am really not keen. I always think of it as an insult: he’s a right Charlie. Charles is fantastic though, and carries so much more weight.

Thanks @Whatsyourflava and @Ricekrispie22 😊 I love Miles but DH isn’t a fan lol.

I also think Delilah is beautiful but we are Scottish and after having thrown this name out there a few times in hypothetical baby name chats with friends/family there seems to be a huge problem with pronunciation which annoyed me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Some say β€œDel-eye-lah” and some say β€œDel-iy-lah” πŸ™ˆ
Imogen is also lovely but I know quite a few around here at the moment 😊

Amelia and Abigail (Millie and Abbie for short) for our identical girls
Remi and Riley are our identical boys)
Hallie
Mackenzie
Scarlett and Sienna are our top choice for our twin girls on the way
Hope that helps and congratulations again 😊
