Your sons' names are among my absolute favourites. Seth is so refreshing to hear, especially!
I think Ezra is the most striking with your boys.
Followed by Grey...which I also like, but feel has a...
Pregnant much sooner than expected with my final little guy/gal.
For a boy we're pretty decided on the name Oisin (or, alternatively Wilfred, nickname Wilf)
On the girls side,...

oh my! double take- this is almost exactly my girls' name.
congratulations and enjoy these first precious months
We're considering it as a middle name...but this pretty much confirms my fears that its never gonna go down well with anyone else. Thank you for the honest opinion!
I ask this with trepidation (because I really love this one)
but what are people's first impressions/opinions on Igor?
refreshing or terrible?

I really love Willa.
Have been concerned when coasting this site that it has become very trendy- thoughts?
Is it just a Nameberry popularity spike, or one which is reflected in actual births?

Thanks for the responses.
I like Dulcinea but can't picture saying it on a daily basis 1000X- Lavinia kind of smooches into three syllables, whilst Dulcinea remains a resolute four. Plus it...

I gave my kids two middle names based on tradition! I have two, my siblings have two, and my mother has two. I've always found the idea that it's 'pretentious' pretty dispiriting. Names are tied to...

Just realised I didn't even answer the initial poster properly..
I don't think any time is 'too early'.
My parents were academics, and big believers in total exposure of kids to anything and...

Everything Ottilie said, really.
I'd also add 'I Capture the Castle', which I'm saving for when my daughter is ten/eleven.
My kids are a bit little for most of my classics as of yet, but they...
In my family (both sides combined) there is a Betty, a Beth, an Eliza, a Bess, and a Tessa.

Oh this is a fun list.
Rosamond Helena- Love Helena but Rosamond I prefer with a 'mund'! I find them a bit much both together; one isn't giving a lot to the other, I feel like. Rosamund Ethel,...

Haha that's hilarious. Freya is actually one of my favourite names! But- and it's a big but- it's a top twenty name in the UK and I just don't want a daughter who is one of five Freyas in a class....

I do actually like Drusilla! Dulcie is a name we sporadically toy with, and they have something of the same feel. I seem to have a quite antipathy to D names, but these two intrigue me.
We stay in a flat with the kids from Mon-Fri, and there's only showers, no baths. The bathrooms are teeny weeny so no room for an installation either.
We got a baby bath seat with suction pads at...

Haven't been active on the site for about 17 months but have been browsing broodily for about the past 5. I'm not yet TTC, but the waiting game in more financial than emotional. Me...

I quite like it! Prefer Delphine, but I think its appealing

I am really really not a fan of Thisbe..not least because I think it'd be a very tough name to answer to at school..
It isn't even a name which people recognise, or will have heard before. That...

Well we clearly have similar tastes in names!
I do really like your daughter Florence's name, too.
Of your options, I love Gloria and Mabel (see sig!) and really dislike Rosamund.
I find it...
