Evening lovelies ♥️
So I'm due my first little one in May, and we find out the gender in 3 weeks. OH and I have started making some lists, however they are quite long!
Could you let me know your favourite 3 from both our boys and girls lists please 🌟
I have a top three personally, but there's only a couple OH agree on totally!
Thank you 😘

Austin - the Austin I know is a delight but I don't like the name. Place names as names aren't attractive to me
Max - nice but a bit boring
Sonny - I really dislike this.
Arlo - I like this
Sebastian - I love this
Felix - I really like this
Arthur - I like this. I know an awful lot!
Elijah - quite like this
Ezra - really like this
My top three boys would be Sebastian, Ezra and Felix.
Iris - I love this
Lyla - it's ok. Much prefer Lyra.
Maya - I like it if it's pronounced my-a, dislike may-a
Thea - love love love this
Eliza - love this
Elsie - really like this
Maeve - don't like. Sounds depressing to me
Myla - don't like at all.
My top 3 girls would be Thea, Iris and Eliza. Lyra would beat Eliza if it was on the list.

@Princessbanana hahah! Thank you 😘
DontFadeAway · 22/11/2020 18:46
@RunningFromInsanity you have great taste 😉
L4uz · 22/11/2020 18:48
I have to say Sebastian for a boy (that's what we were going to call ours had she not been a girl) and Eliza for a girl as it was on our list of middle names 😊
IckleBear · 22/11/2020 19:08
Elijah, Max, Felix
Thea, Eliza, Maeve
Lelophants · 22/11/2020 19:13
Love love Thea and quite like Maya and then I guess Elsie.
Nell96 · 22/11/2020 19:36
I find boys' names really difficult and I'm not overly keen on any on your list (or mine, to be honest!) I'd probably go for Arthur, Sebastian and Sonny, though Sonny would have to be a nickname for something e.g. Orson. Other names you might like: Isaac, Ellis, Theo, Auden.
I love Iris and like Thea a lot. Maya would probably be my third choice. Other suggestions: Lyra, Ivy, Thora, May, Elise, Alice.

Love your lists! We have very similar taste, also due next May! 💛 Arlo is currently our favourite boy and Thea favourite girl from your lists x

Lyla - don't like, too many similar names around
Maya- don't like, too many similar names around
Thea - don't like, too many Theos around
Eliza - ok
Elsie - not keen
Maeve- not keen, too many similar names around
Myla- don't like, too many similar names around

1.Max (although I like it best as a nn for Maxim/ilian)
Sebastian, Arthur, Felix and Elijah are all fine, just not my personal taste. The others are too nicknamey or trendy for me.
Thea and Maya are nice (but unfortunately I like them best pronounced "Tay- ah" and "May -ah", which are the less common pronunciations). As with the boys names the others are all too nicknamey/trendy for me.
SaffieSoph · 22/11/2020 20:01
All our great! I think we have similar taste! In order I’d go for:
Sonny, Austin, Felix
Iris, Thea, lyla, Maeve
formerbabe · 22/11/2020 20:02

merlotormalbec · 22/11/2020 20:06
Sorry I couldn't pick 3! Think we have similar taste. Ultimate faves are Felix and Thea.
