Hi Kimberley20

I love Cora but I am not sure about Colin. Where did you get that name from?

Me and my husband are ttc and have chosen already chosen a boys name,
Jamie John Ashley (second names after my Grandad's)

but can not decide on girls names, I like
Madison
Leha
Hayden
Harlow (Nicole Ritchies daughters name)
I wanted Jamie-lea as a girls name but my husband wanted Jamie as a boys
but my husband is not sure on any of them
and for second names for the girls I have
Emilie (my sisters name)
Daisy (my Grandmas name)

When are you due? Are you gfoing to find out if it is a girl or boy before the birth?
J9 x
but I think I am going to add Cora to my list of names and see what my husband thinks!

I think Cora is lovely, but sorry I don't like Colin, I think it is old fashioned, several people I know called colin are 40+ maybe it just reminds me of them lol

Hiya,
sorry but I have to agree with the other ladies about the name Colin.I think Cora is beautiful(I actually have it on my list) but Colin is a bit too old fashioned.like jamestar says but it is completely your choice,maybe you could use it for a middle name instead if you really it but as I said,completely up to you x

we found out it was a boy when we had to have a scan at a foetal unit due to high nuchal scan results (everything was ok though thank goodness) We didnt mind what we wer having just happy he is doing good. We are thinking Jack (our surname is Leonard) what do you think????

ok, so the boys name Confused Shocked

Colin Joshua James Maternaghan Colin is my partners dads name so its a keeper, and i've already promised him his first born son will be named after him. Rolling Eyes

now, thing is i agree that colin is quite old-fashioned so came up with the idea of baby being called CJ for short. Wink

and unlike other nickname that arent always used, baby would be called CJ at school and home and nevetr reffered to as Colin except on his birth certificate. Very Happy

what do you think??? is CJ a good name??? Laughing

J9, glad you like the name Cora so much, my partner came up with the name and i really love it too.

yes, im going to find out if im having a boy or girl, the scan is on the 2nd of may, so im really excited to know!!! Laughing

out of your girls names i think Jamie-Lea is a beautiful name and goes best with Emily for second name or Cora Emily sounds lovely too.

Jamie John Ashley is really nice too, I know a boy Jamie (a freind of a freinds wee boy) and he is cheeky and adorable, so i think of him when you said Jamie for a boy.

let me know what you think of my suggestions. Very Happy

Kimberley why don't you have Colin as the middle name? Then it means grandpa is kept happy but you don't have to make up a nickname for him. xxxx

lol!!!!

probably will go ahead with the CJ, although have to say claires a nice name so why would everyone shorten it???

anyways, thanks again for opinions, they've been great.

all the best for everyone and there baby's!!!

thanks
