  1. I called my daughter Imogen Grace 7 years ago. I have never regretted it a day since. Its a lovely name but does get a mixed reaction. Maybe a little like marmite !!

  2. Oh, Imogen and Oliver are both names that are so near and dear to me! And on such precious kids, too – makes my heart smile 🙂 Imogen was the only other name on the list for our oldest daughter, but dh nixed it (I think my story’s up next week or so!). Now after three *more* girls not being named Imogen, he’s decided he likes it if we ever have another girl. Bring on girl #5 🙂

    I love your kids’ middle names too. Great complete packages, both of them!
