We are expecting our first child in June. We have both agreed on a girls name-
- Sophie Marie Flavel, my Mum who has passed away was Ann-marie so the Marie was a way to include her name.
As for a boy we are undecided, we have decided on a middle name my grandfather’s name Theodore. My favourite names are (in order of preference):
- Christian Theodore Flavel
- William Theodore Flavel – There were lots of William’s in my fam
- Henry Theodore Flavel – nick name would be Harry
- Campbell Theodore Flavel – My husbands fav uncle is Campbell ( I adore him too-he’s still with us)
- Hudson Theodore Flavel – My Grandmother’s maiden name was Hudson.
My husband hates all of them, his one and only suggestion is
What do you all think? And do you have any other suggestions?

As much as I like William Theodore Flavel, their initials would be WTF.
I am leaning toward Hudson Theodore Flavel. I don’t know why.

I like Henry, no reason I just think its a cute name for a little boy (and it ages up well)

Sophie Marie is such a lovely name, and so sweet that it’s after your mom.
I like William Theodore or Henry Theodore best – they have the nicest flow imo
My husband’s name is William, so admittedly I’m a little partial, but I think it’s a timeless, solid name for a little boy.

I really like your girls name. Very pretty!
For your boys name, I think you need a relatively simple first name or it becomes too much of a mouthful.
I like Henry Theodore and Edward Theodore.
Other suggestions to consider:
- Evan Theodore
- Grant Theodore
- Blake Theodore

@panterapeach: Thank goodness you caught that, I odnt think I ever would have. My Darling Husband hates William because of Willy, which i think is dumb, I don’t know of any William’s that are ever paid out about being called Willy, but so glad you picke up on WTF!
Seems like Hudson is a fav! which is nice as it has a sentimental element too!

Henry Theodore is my favorite, hands down. It’s adorable yet classic and will grow up well.
I do have a soft-spot for Scottish names though, so I also really like your hubby’s suggestion of Lachlan.
