I've been stalking around here for almost all of my pregnancy but never felt brave enough to dive in so forgive me for any lack of forum ettiquette (it's all new to me haha)
So I'm 27 weeks pregnant with our first 'little' who's conception was more than a little bit of a surprise but is still VERY welcome!!!
We've deliberately kept the gender a secret and therefore need to pick both male AND female names. Problem is I process thoughts by bouncing them off people while my husband only likes to share thoughts once they're fully formed.
Partly as a result of this and partly for some other reasons we decided to keep any potential names secret until we announce the birth of our mini-one. I'm fine with that BUT I value outside voices to help me process so...
We want the name to be something others in our area won't pick but not something so weird that our child hates us. Currently the two names we're stuck on are:
Arwen (f) and Amos (m)
Middle names are trickier but we like 1 or 4 syllable names best in terms of how they sound which has lead us then to:
Our surname is Bayton
I know both names are quite odd but we like that... Are they TOO odd though?
I've never heard these names before, but I like them. Especially Amos. The only thing I'll say about Arwen is that it rhymes with Darwin (which may only bother me because I spent time in Australia lol) but if that doesnt bother you and YOU like the name, thats all that matters. I think its nice that you guys are choosing different names, the world would be boring if all names were the same. x
I like both! Amos is cute and yes, it's a bit of an old mans name but maybe it's time for a revival? My sister got slack for calling her little one Stanley but I couldnt imagine him with any other name now!
Welcome and congrats!!
I love arwen and amos, i considered amos but oh said it reminded him of an old man. However, old fashioned names are making a come back!
Love your middle names, they might be a bit too unusual as first names but great middle names x
