    This is a bit long but just to see where we are coming from!

    So before we were even trying, boys name was picked. Nickname the memorial child because names are relatives that have died plus my husbands twin who was sadly stillborn. Girls name though, we are stumped. Beyond stumped.

    My name is double barelled, two very simple names but together its fairly unusual. My husbands name is a nickname, so although the name is common, for it to be his birth name is also quite unusual. I go by mac because although i love my name, im sick of variations of it, my entire life people have got my name wrong and my husband is the same, people have called him the formal version but its not his name. So we would like a fairly unusual name but spelled easily if we had a girl. Whew, you still with me, congrats.

    We both loved the name Athena, but im kinda going off it now! My OH doesn't seem to like anything else. Every name he associates with people haha! So he definitely wants something unique. I was thinking short and sweet Elva, Evie, Ava (i seem to like a lot of vowels) so wana throw some suggestions our way?

    I totally get where you're coming from. My dad named my sisters and myself and we've always had to spell out our names or correct people. My name is Leah which isn't so unusual now but in the 80s it was. I grew up being called Lee/Leigh and having to spell my name. When I was pregnant we loved Aoife but I felt too bad for my child having to spell that out all her life!

    I have no idea what you like so I'll throw some names out based on liking Athena :)

    Aurora
    Alena/Elena/Helena
    Celeste
    Ophelie
    Luna
    Thalia
    Luella
    Iris
    Ivy
    Violet
    Autumn
    Sage
    Coral
    Lucia

    I'll keep thinking :lol: xx

    Yeah living in NI, all my friends have Irish names, they had a terrible time with spellings.

    Your suggestions are great. I love them especially Thalia, been saying them to the bump too getting some kicks! Only one OH liked was Luna but hey its one more than this morning.

    You will ins that different names are popular or unusual in different areas .

    Where I live in a small village Harper is very rare and there's not a single child called Harper
    I work in Liverpool and I know 2 colleagues with children called Harper who live in Liverpool !

    Tyler . Kai , Jordan , Miley , Sophie and mikey are also popular in the city but rarely heard in my village . Must be trends in various areas lol ��

    My personal choices for girls are

    Evelyn rose ( evie for short )
    Harper Lily
    Willow Rae

    And my boys are :
    Ted William
    Jacob William
    Benjamin beau
    Franklin Isaiah ( Frankie for short )

    We are staying team yellow
    Good luck with choosing :)

    My nickname is mac but i forget its a nickname, i just use it as my name! I hate people saying my name wrong even though its so simple. Oh winter irish baby names, Robyn? Im going to have to think about that one. Rosalie is lovely. Very sweet name. For a boy we have Callum. Saw tge name Leora for a girl in a magazine, very different.
