I think we have decided on this for a first name if baby is a boy.

Am really struggling though for a middle name. I do like Alexander but not sure if it is too long and goes with our surname (which also ends in 'er'.)

I quite like Lachlan but there is no way DP will go for that!

Any other suggestions?
Thanks x

What about Murray?

Is Xander a nn for Alexander or a name in its own right? I think both go nicely with Harris

My first thought was 'arse'. Sorry.

Piemistress, Xander Harris is the name of a character from Buffy. Maybe that's why you think they seem to go well together!

Hamish is great, I thought of a dog for Harris.

Harris means arse where I come from too, and DP is scottish and also knows this.

My nephew is Harris and no one has mentioned arse! It must be an English thing? I'm Scottish and live in Scotland. I know a few Harris. I like Harrison too. I agree the whole surname first name thing is irrelevant.

What about Finlay in the middle?

My son's friend is called Harris - we are in Scotland - and can't say that arse was the first thing to enter my head.

Harris for a dog? What a stupid thing to say. Of the dogs I know there's a James, Jack, Hamish, poppy and Glenn! All perfectly good names for children or dogs!

Just so long as he hasn't got brother called Lewis ...

lol BC - I know a brother and sister called Lewis and Skye ;o) wonder if they'd had more kids they would maybe have had Harris, Isla and Iona.

Don't like it at all I'm afraid. I think Harris Tweed.

Harris is THE best name! I am biased! I love it because its not overused & it's a classic x
