my favourite B names

Barnaby- I love the sound of this name as it rolls off the tongue, I love the nickname Barney too ­čÖé Also a favourite NZ written picture book has a character Barnaby Bennett- I think its divine!

Beatrix- Bea & Trixie both cute nicknames. Could also see myself using it in the middle name slot. Always makes me think of Beatrix Potters magical little creatures :).

Comments on Lewis:

Lewis is a very beautiful name and I think it also sounds royal. It is a name I would give my son. It is also the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s great-grandfather and is also the middle name of several of her relatives.

I love this name. I prefer this spelling of Lewis to Louis. But I quite like both. I prefer Lewis as a middle name because I think that it makes many names in a name combo flow well.

Lewis in my opinion is the sexiest and handsomest name in the whole wide world ever.
