What's in a name?

When we started trying for a baby, the Boy and I talked about what names we liked for any children we were lucky enough to have. Luckily we have fairly similar tastes - although some of my more old-fashioned options for a girl have been firmly ruled out by the Boy!

At the time our favourite combinations for a girl were: Lola Rose, Ava Gabrielle and Ruby Grace. For a boy we both really like: Alfie John, and Archie or Noah Thomas. We like Dylan as well but we're keen on Thomas as a middle name, as I lost a dear friend with that name to cancer when he was just 20 - and I think Dylan Thomas may be a little bit much to live up to, regardless of how poetic any little boy we have might be! Might as well go the whole hog and call him William Shakespeare ;-)
