    HELP! Give a couple a break from name negotiations!

    Hi all!

    I am a name obsessed 24-year-old and my partner and I are looking to start trying THIS October(!!!)

    However, while he is a 'lets discuss it when we know we're pregnant' kind of guy, I am desperate to settle on both our boy and girl options early.

    My favourite names are in my bio, it would be great to hear all your thoughts on my names and any suggestions you may have. Current front runners are:

    Valla Astrid (Valla is new to my list which makes me worry its a passing phase of mine, but Astrid is my favourite name of ALL time and has been forever, its just my partner HATES it with a passion!- he would allow as a mn however)

    Beauden Silas (we know our first born son will be called Beauden, but we can't decide on a middle name. I love Silas but my partner says it sounds like silage- typical farmer! However, my auntie admitted she has a child in her class called Silas, and they nickname him silage.)

    Any other opinions and options would be greatly appreciated. I one syllable mn's and 'indie' sounding names- something that would suit a child growing up on the Australian coast but a child growing up in rural England wouldn't get bullied for. Your suggestions are needed!

    I actually agree with you, choosing a top first and middle for each gender and backup for each NOW is a good idea. It can change later if it must, but not only is it smart for you to choose without all the stress of pregnancy and hormones but it's something good for you to do together in preparation for this huge decision. Your first big parenting decision.

    valla astrid - it's not that I dislike it, but vaila you're right, could be fleeting, it has a fresh feeling but since Astrid already is middle, maybe something with a little more common history? If Astrid is THE middle you are just looking for a first...
    blythe evangeline - blythe Astrid is lovely
    milena annecy - I just don't see this working for some reason

    beauden silas - Beauden is nice, I think Beau & Blythe would be darling siblings
    solly gabriel - Sully I like better but also it's a tough one, Gabriel would be a lovely middle
    jesse crew - I like Jesse, crew isn't my style...

    manning - I don't really like this I don't think
    auguste - this I like for a middle
    cressida - I wouldn't use anything ending in a with Astrid as a middle
    annika
    vada
    eilish - I'm not sure I know this name
    dannika - Danika I like, but as with many previous the a ending doesn't work well
    sena
    margaux - this I also like
    delphi - this just isn't MY style
    herschel - I like this for a middle, I hardly hear it but it has that the for a comeback older feeling that is so nice these days
    omri - I like this
    ward - I like this but not with beauden
    elias - this may be your winning middle Beauden Elias is lovely
    moss - doesn't really work as well with your names as some others.
    wells - Beauden Wells is very handsome
    boyd - too many b-d names

    Beauden Gabriel
    Beauden Auguste
    Beauden Elias
    Beauden Wells

    Blythe Astrid
    Margaux Astrid

    Would be my suggestions

    But do try to not over stress, when you hear the right name you'll know.
    Good luck and congratulations on your decision .

    Beauden Silas is brilliant! Love Beauden!! Beauden Seth came to mind too, or Beauden Elijah, Beauden Kai or Beauden Ry.

    Valla Astrid is cool!! It sounds very celestial!
    I also thought of Valla Ingrid, Calla Astrid, Valla Estelle and Cassia Seren inspired by it!

    Blythe Evangeline, Marguax, Cressida, Delphi and Eilish are lovely too, as are Jesse Crew, Elias and Wilder

    I'll suggest:
    Elara Delphi/Elara Faye
    Acacia Margaux/Acacia Wren
    Calla Juno
    Anya Sigrid
    Romilly Blythe
    Thalia Carys

    Cormac Elias
    Elias Forrest
    Forrest Maxwell
    Raffy Elijah
    August Wilder
    Rory Jasper
    Monty Axel
    Grace
    Sarai Matilda|Cherith Eliza|Sholto Felix|Tristan Rafferty
    Una Adele|Mabli Charlotte|Percy Evander|Otto Elias

    Oh wow, thank you all for your incredible response!

    Some names you all mentioned that are already on our list because we love them so much (and so will definitely be added to our 'top' consideration list) are:

    Brooks

    Callie
    Ingrid
    Blaire
    Cora
    Mila
    Cordelia
    Cornelia
    Romilly
    Flora

    The names you've added to our list that we have never considered before, but now love:

    Sullivan
    Otto
    Oak
    Ridge
    Forrest
    Evander
    Ezra
    Raffy
    Monty

    Valley
    Soleil
    Calla
    Anya

    FINAL DECISIONS:
    Beauden Wilder is 100% my top choice for a boy- confirmed with my partner!
    I really love 'Joss' (so does my partner) for a back up. Joss Sullivan, Joss Elias, Joss Forrest, Joss Gabriel, Joss Silas, Joss Otto & Joss Herschel we can't decide between.

    I'm pretty set on 'Blythe' but just need to think of a great middle name. My top choices at the moment are: Blythe Evangeline, Blythe Auguste & Blythe Valla- but I don't really think any of these fit my exact taste. Because Blythe is so traditional, it would be great to find a really unusual 'special' middle name that is similar to 'Wilder', but I'm not quite there yet!
    Astrid Margaux is our second choice.
