So many pretty names and then you've got Heather chucked in there! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Seren would go so nicely with your other children's names! โ˜บ

I also like:

Paige
Tierney
Paisley
Willow
Quinn
Holly

I am also rubbish with boy's names I'm afraid.

I Liked Keigan when I was pregnant the first time. I really like Freddie but not Frederick or any longer versions. Logan and Ezra are quite nice too.

Charlie Oscar Romeo for that international man of rescue vibe?

I love Thea!

Saffron (LOVE it, my no.1, I found it on a different post) - it's ok. I really like that none of the girls' names would be too matchy but it's not my style. Seraphine is nicer.
Aurora (Too princessy, right?) - definitely too princessy and also rhymes with Isadora
Jade (Loveee) - sorry I hate this. It's so 90s. Pearl is nicer.
Hazel (Like it) - is nice
Heather (Wondered about it before) - is nice but I feel it's a bit matchy with Thea
Fern (Nature-y) - ok
Rosaline/Rosa but not Rose and defo not Rosie - it's ok but there are better options on here
Elizabeth/Lizzie - I really like this
Taylor/Tallie - sorry I hate this. It's so dull compared with her sisters. Talia is pretty though.

Boys names:
Oscar - nice. Very popular but very nice.
Oliver/Ollie - as above. Even more popular but no one could dislike it.
Charlie - ok. A bit bland.

How about:
Martha
Miranda
Beatrice
Constance/Connie
Lucia/Lucinda
Susannah
Antonia

Sebastian
Jasper
Caspar
Frederick
William
Benedict
Dominic
Stefan
Reuben

Option 2 for girls is better IMO.

Honestly, your boy names are all ok but they are very overused whereas your girl names are a bit more inspired. They're nice enough but nothing special.

Thewarrioress · 12/07/2023 20:20

Girls names:

  • Saffron (LOVE it, my no.1, I found it on a different post) - not keen
  • Aurora (Too princessy, right?) No
  • Jade (Loveee) don't like
  • Hazel (Like it) lovely
  • Heather - really like it
  • Fern (Nature-y) no
  • Rosaline/Rosa but not Rose and defo not Rosie Rosaline is beautiful
  • Elizabeth/Lizzie - beautiful, classic, perfect
  • Taylor/Tallie - don't like


Girls suggestions - Raven, Sarah, Helen, Jenny.



Boys names:
  • Oscar - don't like the sound of the weird
  • Oliver/Ollie - ok
  • Charlie - nice
