Hello,
So, if we have a girl we like Luna Violet.
We have a few boys names but non that I hugely love.
So far we have
Dexter
Ezra
Jude
Samson
Jonah

Anyone have any ideas for nice boys names? To go with a two syllable surname ending in Ee sound.

Ivo
Patrick

A 'jonah' is someone who brings a ship bad luck. Very archaic usage.

Eli and Dashiell and Nate are great.

My brother is called Somes, Its an anagram for Moses. I love it and never hear it on any sites....My sister is Majella which i love too and have only ever met one Majella and no Somes'....

Desperately trying to find unusual boys and girls names myself......

How about Emrys?

If you go with Dexter be prepared to be greeted by several Labradors when you call him in the park! I've met several dogs called Dexter.

I rather like Zephyr. I thought it meant gentle breeze.

Soren is the name of a rock stars son for me. He has Danish roots.

HoneyandRum Sat 23-Feb-13 00:01:59

Soren must be from Soren Lorenson in the Charlie and Lola books! He is Lola's invisible friend. (I mean I know the name had much more provenance but that's the pop-culture reference that jumps out at me)

Jude is gorgeous.

Sashapineapple Thu 21-Feb-13 22:36:44

Was also going to suggest Soren, love that name.

Tiernan

What about Jonas (like Jonah but not with the bad luck) See the actor Jonas Armstrong (was Robin Hood in the recent BBC version)
