Oh! I love the British naming style, so that's a huge compliment to my ears. I'm glad you like them together. Out of your girl name suggestions, I really like Beatrice and Phoebe (which was at the...
As I've mentioned, my husband and I are expecting twins and have had a difficult time agreeing on names. But we think that we may have finally found two boy names that we can agree on.

Last night, I was searching for name inspiration and I saw the thread about Frederick. It reminded me that my husband has said that he really likes Frederick, largely because of A Farewell to Arms. I...
Wow! So many responses!
As I said in the original post, Harrison is my husband's preference while Henry is mine. My husband's taste is much more modern than mine. If he had his say, August would...
Thanks for the responses, everyone! I'm surprised that some of you find Henry nn Harry strange. It's definitely an established nickname, just as much as Teddy for Theodore (which is also on the...
It's been about two months since I last posted and my husband and I aren't much closer to naming our twins. We have, however, agreed on the name Harry if one is a boy (I have a strong...

Thank you, Rollo!
Stella Beatrice is amazing! Beatrice not only appears in Shakespeare, but in Fitzgerald (This Side of Paradise) and Salinger (Down at the Dinghy) as well. I love that both girls...
This is a really old thread, but...
Regarding Eli's full name, Elisha is actually a family name for the Mannings. Their father's name is Elisha Archibald Manning III, but he is, of course, known...

Thank you for all of the feedback! It's very helpful to get outside opinions.
So my husband and I have been discussing names all morning (actually all weekend) and I think we've come to a...

Thanks everyone. Though the votes obviously won't actually be determining our decision, Cora, Phoebe, and Stella all seem to have about the same amount of support. Gwendolen is just a little behind. ...

Thank you all for your feedback! I have no idea how we're going to decide.

So, Phoebe and Stella are clearly winning at the moment.
Regarding Stella's popularity, we're sort of torn about how we feel. On the one hand, it scares us off. But on the other hand, if we love...

EDIT: We're now leaning towards Phoebe Gwendolen and Stella Beatrice. Thoughts?
My husband and I have been at a standstill with what to name our twins, and we're both growing frustrated and...
Thank you all for the feedback!
@rollo - We're not in the UK, but in the States, and I'm afraid Harold is a little too "old man" for us. I do love Harry, though.
@lynae - Oh, dear. That's not...
Is Phineas "too much"? Do you know anyone named Phineas? Do you know any Finns? What do you think of August "Gus", Theodore "Theo", and Phineas "Finn" together?

We love Theo and Cora together, but I'm not sure we like Cordelia. It's a little "stuffy" for us, if that makes any sense. But Theodore and Cora seems imbalanced, and then Cora would be the...

Hey guys! Sorry for the delay in posting. Poor August has been under the weather and Jack's been away on business, so we haven't had much time to think about names.*
We have, however, decided that...

I only have time for a very quick post, but I wanted to update you on our thoughts.*
I'm loving the idea of twin sisters named Phoebe and Cora. I know I was lukewarm about Phoebe and Stella, but I...
April 11th, 2012, 03:26 PM
Haha Jack and I clearly don't know much about the popularity and trendiness of names. We were the first of our friends to have kids and August isn't in school yet, so we don't know very...

I didn't realize it until after I hit submit, but boy was my last post long. Keeping that in mind, I'm going to try to keep this brief and, as a result, I won't respond to each person individually....

Thank you for all of the suggestions! This is great! We used the lull between Easter Mass and our family dinner (and the quiet of August's sugar-induced nap) to quickly run through the suggestions....

My husband and I had talked about having a second baby for a little over a year before we started trying. And once we started, boy did it happen fast. And then, surprise! Twins! We've been...
