We are expecting no.3 in a couple of months. We don't live in the US or have twins.
We are both the middle child of three and always planned to have three ourselves. We are very close to our...
Poll: Alliteration: yay or nay
Trying to name no.3. We have two sons already and have always struggled with boy names. I think alliterative names are very dependent on the actual names in question. So, the name we are considering...
I pronounce it as an "a" too, but I'm a kiwi. New Zealand accents are pretty close to Oz accents.
This +1. This is great advice.
Getting married is stressful to a certain extent because most of the time you have never organized anything of that size before. However, in a lot of ways it is also a "coming of age". It is a time...
Yup, too similar for me. Feels like a tongue twister when you say them together.

I vote Lucia!
I'm in Wellington and know a baby Arlo. I think it is completely wearable here. It's so close to Theo and Leo which I hear all the time round here. Definitely go for it.
Imogen was the name we had picked out for our last bub (ended up with a boy). I'm also in NZ so some of our other favs might be your taste:
Miles, Toby, George, Harry, Hamish, Leo, Jasper, Julian
Love Genevieve. I think it works with lots of longer sounding middle names.
Use tabitha! Even if your friend has a baby girl one day, she will most likely, like you, have to contend with the bub's father having a vote on its name, and he may veto Tabitha, or have the...
Very similar in my view. It seems to me to be the equivalent of naming your children George and Georgia, or Ari and Aria.
I think all the potential objections you have raised have no basis. You have a very different style to me, but I don't think there is anything at all wrong with Crew David for your third child. It...

With my first pregnancy:
My Mum straight away (about 6 weeks).
DH's parents at 10 weeks
Our siblings and my boss at 12 weeks
Everyone else at 16 weeks
Facebook at about 32 weeks

Have you thought about using your maiden name? That might be a way to get something unusual (obviously I haven't got the foggiest idea of what your maiden name is).
If yours doesn't work, your...

Okay, also meant to say Moana would be a girl's name.
And, I would probably not use Koha as it is a commonly used term to seek a donation even in english (i.e. entrance to this museum is by gold...

I am a kiwi, so my opinions are based on names I would expect to hear in NZ.
The usable names from your list IMO are:
Manu, Tane and Kahu for a boy, and Kiri, Marama and Aroha for a girl.
I have a Hamish! I live in New Zealand though, where it is a pretty normal kind of name (similar to Andrew).
The Ham thing never comes up, because the pronounciation does not involve ham at all:...

Nope, not stealing. Family names are just that - they are up for grabs by the whole family. Firstly, they considered the name and didn't use it - this means it is fair game. Secondly, you are...
I think they are too close. It sounds matchy and tongue-twister-ish. Love Georgie and angus. Do you like Georgia?

Okay, I tried to answer your question without reading your list. My immediate thought was Samuel, followed by Simon. Both of these are on your list and they are both wonderful names. Good luck.

Wow, really surprised by how many of you would find out. I waited for a surprise with my son. It was so exiciting when he was delivered, and the doctors etc, got my husband to give me the news that...

I have a friend who made the same transition 4 years ago. He chose a name that had no particular resemblance to his former name, but did have a similar feel and style. It was also resolutely male. ...
I have Rose on my list, and I think it needs a long middle name.
