Love your choices, op. All lovely underused classic names. Particularly like
Camilla, Vivienne and Vincent. Also love Littlecherub's list - in fact both my dd and ds's names are listed there.

Thanks for the lists, Little smile

I like Violet from your list but worry it wouldn't be pronounced properly. I also like Julia but prefer Juliet. Your lists contain quite a lot of mine and DP's family names! I love Raymond; that's now on the list.

Not keen on any of your girls names - maybe Sylvia at a push.
I do like Benedict though and Vincent is ok.

Evelyn
Florence
Beatrice
Josephine
Clara

Annabel
Violet
Lilian

Patrick
Tristan
Edmund

My name is Camilla.

Everyone assumes I am well posh, even though I am not. My friends joke that my mum saved thousends in private school fees when naming me.

I was either going to be Amelia or Camille/Camilla as my dad's mother loved Camelia (sp) plant and she passed away whilst my mum was pg with me.

Love the name Camilla.

Never met a Lydia who wasn't very, very highly strung. That'd put me off even if it is wrong!

Love Frances and Vivienne as well as Vincent and Benedict.

Zaphiro Mon 25-Feb-13 01:43:02

Having thought some more I also like Juliet. And Bram (not so Abraham though...) Edward is also lovely. I feel like Sylvie is short for Sylvia, unless said in a French accent?

I like Frances.

I very much like Sylvia and Vivienne. Camilla is a pretty name but Charles' wife just puts me off - not that I have anything against her especially, just she come into my head as soon as I think of the name.

Frances - meehh, sorry, just sounds very plain and boring.

Vincent I like for a boy. Jon Travolta in Pulp Fiction smile

I am a Vivien - there aren't many of us about. (My Mum loved Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind apparently!

Sashapineapple Sat 23-Feb-13 12:43:37

I like Vivienne, dislike the other girls names and the boys.

wigglesrock Sat 23-Feb-13 06:30:41

Camilla or Vincent (Frances and Vincent are my husbands favourite names ever grin)

We have daughters so we never used Vincent - I also liked Dominic. I think Sylvie is nicer than Sylvia - what about Lydia?

Zaphiro Sat 23-Feb-13 00:55:15

What do you think?

Camilla or
Vivienne or
Sylvia or
Frances

Vincent or
Francis or
Benedict or
Roy. I like Royston grin

Anything else we might like?
