Posted this in baby names a few days ago but had no replies - then I realised I’d posted it in the wrong area! So anyway, our favourite boy name is [name]Arto[/name] and has been for 4 years. It is a Finnish form of [name]Arthur[/name] and is pretty much set in stone if we have a boy. My husband and I are not Finnish but Australian with strong English, plus [name]German[/name], Russian, Irish and Maltese background.
We are planning on starting a family next year - and are not certain which boy or girl names could go with [name]Arto[/name].
Not sure if my other favourites would go with [name]Arto[/name] - as seen in my signature. My husbands absolute favourite girls name is [name]Mimosa[/name] (pros and cons have been discussed on a previous board - the name has meaning to us and we didn’t know its a cocktail). [name]Will[/name] be using this at least for a middle name if we have a girl.
For some reason the other day I thought old English [name]Fae[/name] (my mum’s middle name is [name]Fay[/name]) would work well. It reminded me of the story of [name]King[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] and [name]Morgan[/name] the [name]Fay[/name] (fairy). Would [name]Fay[/name]/e work or is the plain spelling too plain next to [name]Arto[/name]?
Also liking [name]Felix[/name] at the moment - which would mean alliteration when placed with our last name. I like alliteration but it’s not a necessity.
All Suggestions [name]Welcome[/name]!! Thank you berries!
