i had this dilema, but i had no girls names!
what kind of names do you like for girls so we can help with boy ideas,
My personal favourites are, jack, william, thomas, max, saul and alfie

Peppermint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!There's thirteen lovely names somewhere.
I have three boys.
Boys names still on my virtual list include William(that's my next boy)
Henry(that'll be his middle name).
Also like Oscar,Freddy/Freddie,Archie,Edward,Alexander,none of which I've run by my husband yet.
Merlin nearly had Pendragon as a middle name.We tend to start with very old names,but we're also big into myths and legends and old tales.

Use a baby name generator,just for fun,but it might throw up an idea.Can't remember what site,I just Google these things.
I like your girls' name choices though.I know a Laura,she's niceMy Nan had a sister called Lily.My friend just had a baby Jasmine this year
I always picture myself chasing after a runaway toddler with a name in busy place calling after them.Would I feel okay yelling a name in public.What about when my child has to answer to it at school.All the same I don't want the same names everyone else is using.There's three Harrys at my son's school
Can't believe Erin goes to school with a girl called Arwen!!!!!!!!!What?Most people never heard of it.
Anyway,hope you find something you like

Hiah,why not try what Jo suggested,you can google baby names and they give loads of sites,try that for a laugh,you never know there may be one you love
I like traditional names-spelt welsh way!!!! I loved the name Elvis tho my ma rang every day and repeated her mantra,please don't call your son Elvis,please!!!!!!!!
Love Lilly,very feminine and pretty. Laura good choice too. Jasmine also pretty,bit more unusual too. Good choices. Hope you find something you both agree on!

another arwen, in the same place!!!
i love that name, doubt roo would allow, i mean lolas out there for him!
with the calling there name, DONT HAVE JACK!!!
whenever i call him about 6 other boys turn and look guilty! and then theres 3 teenagers 4 dads and 2 old men!!!
there are jacks everywhere all ages, and theyre usually mischeivious!!!

we were exactly the same! had a list as long as your arm for girls names but few boys names. My theory (and im sticking to it)is that a boys name knid of reflects their character, tho you cant really wait till they are 5 til you name them can you!? And most girls names are pretty anyway just like girls are.
My oldest is Connor but it took us a long time to get there. We had decided on Cian about a month before my due date but by the time i had him his name had changed! Wished it hadnt though cos nearly every boy in the hospital was called Connor! Same when we had Caitlin-numerous girls with the same name. Not many Andrews though thankfully!LOL!
I still like Cian for a boy (oh wasnt too keen), or Mark. As you can see the list isnt very long!
Im with Laura, dont go for something too obvious or you may end up with a whole playground looking at you! And the one you do want just carries on ignoring you!

that sounds right, my jacks the only one who doesnt turn around!
Having said that though, from day one, jack has suited him, i never had one doubt, it just fits, same with Lola! Her name suits her, a bit odd!

I have five boys - their names are
I also have six nephews; their names are
Mark Daniel John
Other boys names I like are:
Harry, Henry, Freddie, George, Richard, Samuel, Bertie
and if you want something a bit different....
Aragorn, Sirius, Severus, Lucius, Draco, Angel, Tobias, Raphael
Hope that gives you a few ideas
26/11/2009 at 21:42
We wanted Aragorn,but thought it a step too far.I love the name Nathanael.Unfortunately it wasn't my turn to choose.Ernest was my Grandad's name,so that's sort of tempted me a few times.
Your boys have lovely names.I like thae baby name choosing thing

I have boy first and middle name and girl first and middle name sorted! He needs to mesh with me hahaha. He likes the first names but not the middle names!
BUT I think to myself...when little one comes out...what if he/she doesnt look like the name...why not, if you really cant think of any names and really settle on them...let baby show you when he/she arrives ♥

We chose Ernest as it was the name of my husbands great-great-uncle who died in WWI in 1918. The spooky thing was that we found that Ernest had a brother called William John - the name of our eldest son.
