    Recent London Telegraph Baby Names

    Well, I know Pam and Linda already did a blog post on eccentric British baby names (if you're reading this Pam or Linda, I loved it), but that was a few months ago and since then, lots more British babies have been born and named. Here are some recent name combinations to talk about:

    Sophia India (perfect!)
    Georgia Rose
    Poppy Josephine
    Scarlet Lucy
    Olivia Ellen
    Jessica Lily (this one seems so usable in America too)
    Amelia Elizabeth
    Isabella Juliet
    Flora Elizabeth Nell
    Poppy Evelyn Alexandra (pretty but the initials spell PEA)
    Alice Lucy Nina
    Alice Isabella
    Ella Martha
    Emma Jane Helen
    Rowan Christina Elizabeth
    Darcey Sophia
    Freya Vivien
    Cleo Rose

    Alastair George (my favorite)
    Toby Francis Oliver
    Montgomery John
    Samuel Edward
    Josiah Christian
    Digby David Rufus (I've heard Digby as a surname but never as a first)
    Sebastian Easton Wardlaw (is this a baby or a law firm?)
    Theodore George
    Max Edward (funny, this was the only Max I found, it's so popular here but not there)
    Oscar William Pethebridge
    Lachlan Alexander
    Laurence (I prefer this spelling to Lawrence)
    Twins Archie and Eliza (love it!)

    Now that you've seen the List, I want your feedback. Which ones are your favorite? Least favorite? Why?

    I'm British and mostly I love our naming style. Note the mostly.
    name combinations to talk about:
    Sophia India- I love love love India and I prefer that as a first name but still lovely

    Georgia Rose- nice

    Poppy Josephine- nice

    Scarlet Lucy- nice

    Olivia Ellen- I'm rather sick of Olivia if I'm honest but still a nice name

    Jessica Lily (this one seems so usable in America too)- nice but overused

    Amelia Elizabeth- lovely

    Isabella Juliet- gorgeous

    Flora Elizabeth Nell - so fab!!

    Poppy Evelyn Alexandra (pretty but the initials spell PEA)- pretty

    Alice Lucy Nina - I like the addition of the Nina

    Alice Isabella- lovely

    Ella Martha - nice

    Emma Jane Helen- I'd prefer Jane or Helen as a first

    Rowan Christina Elizabeth- nice

    Darcey Sophia - I prefer the spelling Darcy but still lovely

    Freya vivien - I prefer Vivian but still lovely

    Cleo Rose - lovely

    Alastair George (my favorite) - love this

    Toby Francis Oliver - very nice

    Montgomery John- Montgomery is a bit clunky but still lovely

    Samuel Edward - nice but Sam/Samuel is so overused here

    Josiah Christian - a bit religious for me to have both names together but Josiah is one of my fave Biblical boys names

    Digby David Rufus (I've heard Digby as a surname but never as a first) -goodness I don't like Digby but oh well! Love Rufus though.

    Sebastian Easton Wardlaw (is this a baby or a law firm?)- Senastian's alright. Maybe the mns are family names

    Theodore George - love love love

    Max Edward (funny, this was the only Max I found, it's so popular here but not there)- I think Max is pretty popular especially in the 4-10 age group at the mo

    Oscar William Pethebridge - nice

    Lachlan Alexander
    Laurence (I prefer this spelling to Lawrence) - Love.

    Twins Archie and Eliza (love it!)- cute!
