Not pregnant but we want more kids one day..
I was thinking of honouring a few people in my and dp's families..
Christine is his mum's name.. I like the names Chrisanthy (kris-ANN-thee) and Chrishelle (Krish-ell) for a girl..
My mums name is Sandra so I thought for a boy maybe Xander..
My grandma past away last year and her name is Leonie so maybe Leo for a boy. Or I would consider Leonie or Leona as a girls middle name..
Dp's grandpa passed away even before dp was born so be obviously never got to meet him and his name was George.. What about Georgia for a girl?
Are any of these combos good? Bad?
Chrisanthy (not sure about a middle name but I love Rose but is it too flowery?)
Xander Leslie ( both our maternal grandpas are named Leslie)

Xavier is nice. But the girls names sound made up, not really a fan sorry.

It's becoming more accepted to give girls a traditional male middle name. DD3's middle name is a boy name in honour of her uncle. We didn't bother trying to turn it into a girls name.

I don't mind Xander, Leo and George/Georgia and but I agree I'm not a fan of your girls names. I generally find if you need to explain how to pronounce it by putting it phonetically in brackets it's probably not a name I'll like but that's just me.

I really like Leo and George for boys and would go for Alexander rather than Xander. Christian and Christopher and nice too.
I like Georgia for a girl. Georgia Christine?
