    I keep reading that old fashioned names are very popular at the moment, and I love them. So throw them all at me, please : ) For girls or boys, it doesn't matter.




    (Yes, I know I'm not actually pregant yet, but you all know what ttc is like, so don't judge me for being a bit nuts :blush:)

    Sarah is derived from it and that is my name :) Sadie is beautiful! If our tradition was for naming for living people then I would pick Sadie for sure!

    My friend just gave birth yesterday and names her little girl Maggie. I think it's really cute and it's really growing on me.

    I love Iris, it's my aunt's and cousin's name and I think it's very pretty.

    I love Beth as well, I wanted it for Rosie but DH vetoed it because he wanted an Irish name. Then he cracked because he liked Rosie so much, so he can't really insist on an Irish one this time!

    I'm sort of liking Libby.

    Daniel is lovely.
