Hello.

I like reading name threads.

And we are having twins. We do not know the sexes of the babies yet. We will not find out until they are born.

We have some names picked out already that are "left overs" from when our daughter was born,  but could use some more too.

We like to have a few that we love and settle on the name after the child is born.

 

We like names that are uncommon, but not too weird and not too hard to spell. We like Celtic names.

We are Canadian with Celtic and French Canadian backgrounds. Our last name starts with an F an is two syllables.

Mine, my partners and our daughters name are all two syllables.

Our daughters name is Arden.

 

What are some girl names and boy names that you love?

Cavin for a boy?  My east-coast friends used it and I hadn't heard it before.

I had so much more trouble with our boy name than our girl one.

Ciaran and Cillian are two of my favorite Celtic names.

And no matter how popular, I am still a big fan of Liam, Quinn, and Finn.

I can provide you québecer names ..The difficulty with that is living in an english place and people not knowing how to pronounce it:

Mathieu

Caleb

Antonin

Matéo

Benjamin

Justin

Louis

Léo

Philippe

Maxime

Édouard

Alexandre

Arnaud

Arthur

Isaac

Laurent

Jérome

Rémi

Fréderick

Charles

Clovis

...That's what I can think of. I don't really like any of those thought. Maybe Isaac.

 

I called my son Merrick.
