    We have come up with a list of potential names, but need help in making a decision.

    Names for a boy, with Michael as a middle name:
    Dexter, Taylor, Kyle, Nathan, Christopher

    Girl: Middle name Grace
    Layla, Rebecca, Michaela, Alanna.

    Saying them out loud seems to be working, as they sound lovely but still not quite sure..

    Any ideas or thoughts about the names, or any other ones to consider?

    Nathan is my favourite, not a name you come across that often either.

    On your girl list I like Rebecca best with Grace as the middle name.

    Say them out loud a lot with all variations (including with surname) and take into account initials and if they spell anything out. That will help you decide what you like together best.

    I love Dexter - it's on our list! Alanna and Layla are lovely for a girl, I think Alanna pinches it for me, little less heard of and very pretty! x

    I love Nathan. My hubby doesn't like it though so its a no go for me.

    Another vote for Layla Grace here too.

    I love Nathan, it's such a beautiful name.
    As for a girl, Layla is really pretty and the same pronunciation in loads of languages.

    Rebecca! I'm fascinated by old names from the Bible: Rebecca, Sarah, Lota...

    Reeeeally not keen on the name Layla. Never have been as it sounds more like baby babble than a proper name, sorry :( but Alana Grace has a good ring to it and unusual.

    I think Taylor Michael is the best one.

    Christopher Michael fits very well I think. I think Layla is a wonderful name, but I dont think it goes that well with Grace...
    Rebecca Grace on the other hand sounds like a good match :)
