I'm loving Barnaby at the moment...and DP likes it too! shock

I really like Merewen for a girl,I like the nn possiblitys of Winnie or merry.

Whaddaya fink?

Oh and I'm considering using family names as mn's-can you think of any variations/what do you think?

Nicholas
Sue (could I get away with using Sukie?)
Philllipa/pip/pippa
Reginald/regi
Beatrice
Mabel
Teddy (could use this as a nn for Barnaby perhaps...I can see Barnaby graduating to Barnaby bear-teddy,in our house at least wink )

Bonnie/ Idris

We are SO similar! DD is a Matilda. Arlo was top of our boy's name list grin .

I love love LOVE Luna. DP said no but it's Matilda's MN. Latin for moon - we are both sailors smile .

I like Artie as a nn for Artimus. Aulay (ulster scot's version of Ollie) was our other boy's name.

I've discounted Artie as I think it's a bit too similar to Arlo...though i love it.
I've axed my list quite considerably after realising a lot of my favourite names are way to close the my other DC names sad

Barnaby Nicholas Regi sir-name (with teddy as a nn perhaps) works well I think?
I can't seem to get any of the family names to 'sit' right with Merewen though...
