    Question Baby due imminently but stuck for ideas...

    Hi all

    Baby number two is due any day now, but I am feeling completely overwhelmed about choosing a first name for a boy or a girl. My son is called Elliot, which we love, and I have a picky partner who would prefer to avoid the names of kings, queens or saints. Being australian he is conscious of names that can easily be abbreviated and do we would both like to avoid names with peculiar spellings. I am English, so perhaps have a different take on things.

    So far, the only girl's name I have come up with is Alice, which I like but he is not blown away by. And we are a bit hopeless with a boy's name as well.... Perhaps the only contender being Arthur. But I am not convinced.

    I would so welcome any suggestions as I feel I have lost my mojo. Nothing too outlandish, but nothing too popular either.

    Thanks all in advance! Much appreciated!

    Does Elliot go by a nickname? If he is ever called El I wouldn't use Alice. El and Al are too similar in my opinion. Arthur is a great name! It's a strong and classic choice. Will the nicknames Ari, Thor or Teddy make you a like it more?

    Alice seems a bit close to Elliot, but not too much and I do like Alice as well as Arthur. While don't think there have been any Queens named Alice, there are a lot of princesses and I'm sure probably a saint somewhere. Also, as you are probably aware, there is a King Arthur.

    Some other possibilities
