    Hi everyone I'm new here.

    I'm 24 weeks pregnant and I've been trying to work out a few names for my baby. We don't know if its a boy or girl and want it to be a surprise. My problem is my husband has said I can name our little baby what i want because i'm the one pushing lol which is good in a way but I'm having trouble working it out on my own and want to keep it a surprise for our friends and family.

    So basically I just want to get a few other opinions on these names i have shortlisted.

    For a girl my preferences are:
    - Aurelia (this is my number one choice at the moment)
    - Cora
    - Coco
    - Sabrina
    - Serena
    - Giovanna
    - Brigitte
    - Francesca
    - Iris (only likely to be used as a middle name)

    For a little boy they are
    - Jasper
    - Henry
    - Marlo
    - Olivier or Oliver
    - Dominic
    - Alexander

    What do you think of these names and images of what someone with such a name would be like? Can't even decide on first names let alone first and middle combinations lol, this is why I'm asking for a little help. Tell me if you hate any:blush:
    Thanks everyone.

    Our last name is Mossman.
    I really love Coco too but I don't know if its a bit too much, I'm personally quite fashion orientated and have some Chanel branded clothes and bags etc so I'm worried people are going to automatically assume that I named her after the brand or something which I don't really want?

    - Aurelia: Simple, classic. A choice you won't regret!
    - Cora: If my sister had had a girl, it would have been Cora! She had 3 boys, though...
    - Coco Original but a bit too "Chanel" + the obvious coconut puns...
    - Sabrina There are too many Sabrinas in my generation...
    - Serena :thumbup:
    - Giovanna Not so fond of it
    - Brigitte Too old-fashioned
    - Francesca :thumbup:
    - Iris :thumbup:

    -Jasper :thumbup:
    - Henry :thumbup:
    - Marlo Not so fond of it
    - Olivier or Oliver I like Oliver better
    - Dominic Not so fond of it
    - Alexander Just like Aurelia, a classic!

    Wow thanks for this everyone you wouldn't believe how helpful another opinion is.
    I was originally leaning to Aurelia Coco if my baby is a girl, do you all like this? but i really love all of the names i've listed. Boys i still have no clue

    I really like Aurelia Coco Mossman, I think the classic first name goes well with Coco, which is a really lovely name but not quite right for a first name maybe?!

    I love the name Henry as well :) perhaps Henry Alexander Mossman?

    I like Aurelia...it was my grandma's name. I've actually never heard it besides her, but now that some people (THANKS KATE!!!!) have said that it's a more "traditional" name, I'm thinking maybe it's not as "out there" as I thought it was!
    So it's back on the list!
    :D
