    This is our first baby together (OH has 2 daughters from previous marriage, Faye Philly Jean and Ellie-Mae Grace)

    For a girl:

    Isla

    For a boy:

    Hamish (its my dad's name and I just think its lovely. My mum however thinks its awful!)
    Oliver
    Lachlan
    Lincoln

    really going to struggle for middle names too!

    What do you guys think? is a wee Hamish just setting the poor mite up??

    (my dad is scottish, and has an accent altho quite mild as he is from the borders. I have red curly hair) extent of our scottishness ;)

    I love Isla for a girl and also love Hamish. We are trying to keep our name under wraps as people's opinions do put a dampner on things. As long as you and OH love it that's all that matters x

    Isla is lovely.
    The boy name I like is Oliver.
    (I agree with your mum about Hamish, sorry.)

    I'm Scottish and I have to say I don't like Hamish or Lachlan but Oliver and Lincoln I like.

    I know lots of people with westies called Hamish, so that's maybe why I dnt like it.

    Go with your heart though, could even be a middle name if you have your heart set on it? My dads name is Derek, we gave that to Jackson for a middle name And because jackson wasnt having mine and my dads surname (oh and i arent married) xxxx

    we couldnt have Helier, as we are from Guernsey, and Helier is the main town in our rival island, Jersey! lol, so that wouldnt work.

    thanks guys.
