The (almost) final shortlist
The countdown is on, baby is arriving next week and we have only just got the final shortlists of names. We don't name until after the baby arrives but I'm having a last minute panic about missing something or needing something else to consider. We both agree that we'd like somethign Scanidnavian, French or Scottish but there are still plenty of names on the list that don't fit this critera.
Anyway, for those that remember the sibs are Astr!d El0die and S0ren Augustus, surname is similar to Worth.
Any comments or thoughs welcom and any last minute suggestions also welcome.
Boys, first names (not in any order): Ambrose, Octavian, Otto, Caspian, Etienne, Remy, Clement, Balendin, Tavish.
Boys middle names (any of the first names and additionally): Everett, Lucian, Emmerich
Husband is leaning towards Ambrose, Octavian, Tavish or Etienne for a first name. Etienne is a recent addtion to the list.
Girls, first names (not in any order): Clementine, Cordelia, Xanthe, Zinnia, Saskia, Elke, Juniper, Wilhelmina, Delphine, Nora
Girls, middle names (any first name +): Eirlys, Ariadne, Magnolia, Eirlys, Juliet, Otillie, Agnes, Mathilde (ma-TEELD).
Husband wants Mathilde on the first name list, I would except Matilda is exceedingly popular here in Australia and we would get that constantly. Nora is his suggestion and is new. He isleaning towards Elke or Delphine and is less keen on Wilhelmina and Xanthe but is happy to leave them on the list.
As you can see, our lists aren't short and I'm still not convinced we aren't missing something but any further thoughts are appreaciated. Once baby arrives we'll narrow it down and I'll probably post again. You never know he/she might just arrive and we'll know straight away the perfect name but it's taking longer each baby so the poor bub may be nameless for a month!!!
