    Ok so we find out the Gender next Thursday, exciting stuff :happydance: We're just discussing names at the mo and we have agreements and some disagreements so just wanted some opinions lol...

    For a boy:
    Sebastian David Rothery
    Isaac
    Miles

    For a girl:
    Eva Juliette Rothery
    Rose
    Darcey
    Faith
    Hannah
    Isla
    Mia
    Phoebe
    Sophia
    Yasmin.

    (I know, more girl names..whoops! Hahah.)

    Our surname is Rothery as I'm sure you have guessed, I like Sebastian and Matt loves it but I'm just worried it's a little too 'out there' and people will take the mickey.

    I love the name Miles for a boy.

    And for a girl, the only one I dislike is Yasmin because it reminds me of the birth control that got recalled - hahah.

    I like Sebastian- why would you think its too out there? I went to school with a Sebastian and noone ever mentioned his name in a bad way.

    For the girls i love Sophia (my niece is named that) Phoebe is so cute too
    not keen on Rose or Faith.

    Sebastian was going to be our boy name so thats my fav! I like Eva Rose though as well!

    think Seb for short for Sebastian. We had chosen it as my fav film is never ending story and the little boy from that is called Bastian, which we thought was a little out there so went for Sebastian!

    I love Sebastian! It was always one of my choices but OH who is Greek Cypriot thinks it's too English. I don't think it is out there at all but a rather traditional name. Depends of course on where you are in the world.
    For a girl's name I like your first choice best I think, Eva Juliette. :)

    I love your names and I can't stand most girl names - yours are really good. The only one I don't like is Yasmin because it's the name of a birth control pill!

    I liked Phoebe for a girl but my OH was like 'so are you just going to keep choosing names from the cast of Friends, then?'

    I LOVE the name Miles for a boy. My little brothers name is Milo and it was going to be Miles but my parents changed it last minute. I also love Isla for a girl, or Rose. Both very pretty names.

    Oooooh, I like Darcey for either a boy or a girl. Not seen it commonly used.

    I also like Senastian, Isaac and Isla from your list.

    I have a contact on facebook whose youngest sons are Seb (Sebastian) and Kai (Malakai) and I love both names!

    If I was having a boy, I'd have probably stolen one or the other of them!
