Amelie and Oliver

    My activeness on this site over Christmas has been dreadful but with an overexcited four year old and husband, we had a brilliant time! I really hope that all of you did too!

    14 weeks into this pregnancy and time really is flying, I honestly can’t believe it! We have also decided *fingers crossed* on the names for both gender.

    Amelie ‘Mimi’ and Oliver ‘Oli’

    I realise they may not be to everyones taste but we seriously love them and right now I can’t imagine our little bean being anything other than a little Mimi or Oli.

    The hunt is now on for a middle name for both names. Something that goes perfectly with Charles Avery.

    Merry belated Christmas! :) It sounds like yours was much better than mine, but it was still quite lovely (or, as lovely as it could be, providing the circumstances). :)

    And congratulations on choosing! I was holding out for some other options (I was secretly hoping for Elora or Cara, even though I know she’s been out of the picture for a while!), but Amelie was one of my favorites of yours, and Charlie and Amelie would be darling together! Same with Oliver. They’re both really lovely, and I’m loving them all together more and more, every time I look at them!

    Are you still planning on family names? What were the girls’ ones again? Jayne, Eloise, and Elizabeth? I really like Amelie Elizabeth (but I love Amelie Jayne for your mom!), and I don’t think I ever knew your boys’ family names, but I think Oliver Daniel would be handsome. :)

    Thank you Ash! It was quit hectic but we had a great time!

    I’m so glad you like Amelie and Oliver. Yes, those three names are still in, Amelie Jayne is the current favourite! We were thinking of branching out a little bit and using some other names so middle name suggestions are very welcome at this stage. Our sons middle name is also my husbands fathers middle name, so my husband suggested that we use my mum’s middle name, Clara. What are your thoughts on Amelie Clara?

    As for Oliver, we never really had any middle names in mind for him. Paul, Louis, Addison, Robert, Andrew are all family names that go waay back.

    omgoodness, Amelie Clara! On the other name site I’m on, there’s actually a poster who has a 4-year-old little girl named Amelie Clara! What a coincidence! I think Clara was a family name for them, too. I honestly adore it–it’s probably my favorite Amelie combo. Amelie Elisabeth is pretty lovely, too, though. :) Any other family names you’re thinking of?

    I really like Louis, Addison, and Andrew from your family names, but I’m not sure about any of them with Oliver–I would say Oliver Louis is probably my favorite, but I LOVE Addison on a boy and want to love Oliver Addison! I really like the balance of Charles Avery and Oliver Addison–contemporary, classic, quirky British FNs, with unisex middles (Avery and Addison are huge for girls over here–I love that they’re still boys’ names in the UK, though!). I’m so jealous–I wish Addison was a family name for me! :)

    Ash that is such a coincidence! Amelie Clara is a serious contender right now, I’m utterly in love. I really like Amelie Elisabeth aswell (I think I prefer the ‘s’ in there instead of the’z’ right now). As for other family names: there is Willow (my little sisters name. Fleur and Willow, see the connection, haha!), Mary (not great with Amelie), Rosa, Francesca.

    Yes, Addison is a name that actually goes waay back in my family. My grandmother has a family tree and I’m pretty sure my great-great-grandad had this name. Addison and Avery are most certainly still boys names over here and I seriously hope it says that way, aha! Charles Avery and Oliver Addison would be a lovely sibset, do you think Oliver Addison? I don’t really know. Oliver Louis is really lovely as well.

    Thanks for the input, its much appreciated.

    No, way! Your name is Fleur?! My best friend was Amelie, and her oldest daughter is Fleur, lol. Talk about coincidences!

    I think Amelie Willow would be adorable! And a nice way to honor your sister. Charles Avery and Amelie Willow are so cute together. I always favor the Elisabeth spelling. :) It just seems softer. And I love that it’s the French and German spelling.

    I wish it would go back to that way for us! I love Avery and Addison for boys. :( Oliver Addison is pretty nice. I feel like it rolls off the tongue and looks better as Addison Oliver, but I think it balances off really well with Charles Avery, and Charlie and Oliver are really sweet together. I like Oliver Addison and Oliver Louis best from your options. :)

    I love Amelie (it’s on our middle name list) and really like Oliver! Charlie and Oliver make great brother’s names. Your girl name combos are all very sweet. Good luck choosing!

    Yes, my name is Fleur! Oh wow, that is such a coincedence! Yes, I actually really Amelie Willow as well, oh goodness, its so hard to choose. Thank goodness we have a while yet!

    I really love both Oliver Addison and Oliver Louis, thank you.

    Inga: I’m glad you like both Amelie and Oliver. I think Charlie and Oliver would be fantastic as well.

    I like Amelie Elizabeth (if your last name isn’t too long) or Oliver James. Good luck!
