That';s a lot of choices!

I like Leo, Luca, Rosie and Tia. Poppy could easily grow on me though.

Our rules are:
Short & to the point. Nothing that requires a nickname.
One or two syllables.
No more than 5 letters (this isn't particularly a rule as such, but our first 3 kids are 5/3/4 letters long and DH and I are 5 & 4 letters). I would certainly break this rule if need be.
We don't do middle names.

Our surname is one syllable, begins with W and is similar to White

My Faves:
Leo
Toby
Leon
Kian
Luca

His Faves - he is adamant a boy will have a one syllable name like our son.
Rhys
Kai (doesn't sound good with our last name)
Sam
Joe

What we agree on:
Theo (despite being two syllables, he likes this a lot, more than I do)

GIRLS:
My Faves
Rosie
Tia
Aimee

His Faves
Lexie
Libby
Zara
Skye (like Kai, doesn't sound good with our surname)

What we agree on:
Freya
Poppy
Niamh

The ones I like are in colors.....

Your other kiddos are Holly, Ben, and Ella, right?

The boys name that I think fits best with these (and your rules) is Sam. Out of your list, I like Toby the best and I think it fits well, too.

The girl name that I think fits the best with these (and your rules) is Tia. I think Rosie fits fine, too, but I just can't get past the Rosie O'Donnell connection and that turns me off. I think your husband's girl names and the girl names you both agree on are all way too "out there" to fit with Holly and Ella (with the exception of maybe Lexie, but even that is still more modern than Holly and Ella).

What about Tess for a girl's name? I think it would fit great with your rules and your other kids' names.

Hope that helps. Smile
