The thread on grandmothers names has given me loads of inspiration for DC2, so I'm now looking for the same for male names.

Mine were William and Ronald
DH were William and Harry

'Charles Derek' & 'Dudley Lionel Mortimer'... Beat that for a name! He hated it... I was quite tempted to borrow one for DS but my mum said he would have been horrified!

Both of DH's are/were Eric

chinsup, I'm sure Lodwig was a Welsh warrior. My Great Grandmother was called Blodwin... another corker that didn't resurface in later generations grin.

My family had names which really showed what culture/place they came from.

With middle names, mine are Lyell, Cadfael, Huw, Gethin (guess where they came from) and David (Davvy), Aharoni, Sinai, Shaul.
