Bah, this is so difficult.
Thank you for your help. Nothing is standing out to us.
I really want to save Edward for a future son.
It doesn't look like George Basil is getting any love.
Thank you for the feedback thus far.
You mention a number of great names that I love but can't/won't use for one reason or another. Friends just named their little one Felix and my partner has...
Please help us choose a middle name for our little one due July 31!
Middle names of current and possible future children include Cordelia, Beatrice and Sylvia. I'd love to have something that...
I prefer George and Daisy as a sibset, as well. These names sound charming, vintage and truly lovely together. Marshall strikes me as a bit more modern and mismatched with Daisy.

Hi! We have a lot in common. I'm due in July with baby number two, as well. George was my partner's front-runner a couple of years ago; however, we had a daughter named Alice. (I love the name Iris,...

Many non-word, 2+ syllable names work with Wind. I have no suggestions, I just want to comment that the surname Wind is truly lovely.
huia, I love the meaning of Philip. It's a name I can't imagine using as a first name, so it may be perfect in the middle. I will definitely consider George Philip. My significant other isn't...
I like Leo Atlas or Everett Sage best. I like August (Gus), but I don't care for the name Dexter, which is paired with it. Caspian is a cool name, but I wouldn't use it as a first name because it...
dovah, I agree!
We've essentially eliminated Arthur, Edward and Clark. Arthur and Edward may work as middles or for future children. I love Arthur, but I can't do back-to-back As, and family...
My partner's sister said Peter was her favourite from our list, too. I love hearing people's associations and impressions of these names.
Thank you so much. I really appreciate all the great feedback.
@breannajai, I agree with you about the Alice & Clark combo.
@trix, I like Peter George. Our daughter is Alice Cordelia (noble daughter of the sea), and one day we'd like to have a Helen Beatrice (bright one who brings happiness) and Jane Sylvia (gracious girl...
Does anyone think Peter and Arthur sound a bit awkward with the surname Emery?
Wow, I'm so happy to receive more great feedback from you. Thanks! I'll likely review these comments many times.
@blade, the surname is Emery. (That may change the order of some people's picks,...
Thank you kindly. I'll likely pester you a few more times before we make a decision.
Thanks for the excellent feedback thus far. I'm not sure this makes our decision any easier!
A few of you highlighted some of my thoughts and concerns. I'm reluctant to use Arthur because of the...
My partner and I have something of a final list for boys' names. Please pick your favourite and/or rank the following names according to preference. Any and all opinions welcome!

I say Oh-livia. I didn't even know there was another proper way to say it! I'm Canadian, by the way.

Ack, I wish I loved any boy names as much as my top girl names.
From those you list, we've considered and/or like:
Thomas - name of my step-brother who passed away, but we aren't in love with...

Would you kindly suggest boys' names that go well with the following names?
Jane Sylvia or Jane Artemis
Names I like or...
His older sister-to-be is Alice.
What kind of person is Peter?
Is the name easily overlooked to the point of being boring?

Could Archie work as a diminutive of Arthur?
I'm not really a fan of the Art or Thor nickname options.

Apologies for digging up an old post, but I have to say: Beatrice is a top 100 name in Canada! It's within the top 20 in Quebec, and because Quebec represents such a large portion of the Canadian...
You're a genius! I love Hart as a nickname for Arthur. Arthur is on our name list, too, but I've never been too keen on its nickname possibilities until now!
There is something to be said for...

Oh, and you'd think he'd like August or Augustus because he adores Angus... NOPE. I actually like Augustus (Gus) quite a bit.
