I don't like any boys names at all, inspire me please.

(39 Posts)

Ds4 is due in 9 weeks <eek> and I seem to have name apathy and nothing appeals to me.

It will be an Irish name - one of the more unusual ones probably as exp seems to have a thing for awkward to spell and pronounce names. His favourite is Padraigh (pard-ric) but I stumble over the word ever time I try and say it.

The only name I love he says no to as the shortened version is awful, which it is so I can't argue with him about that.

He will have a common Irish surname.

Prefer not to have a name starting with J, M or C.

Any ideas?

You've still got a lot of time to think it through (many people do an about turn when they see their baby). bumping this for more ideas.

I don't know much about Irish names, but I've always liked Declan and Eamonn.

Good luck and congrats! I'm in the opposite boat...I don't like any girl's names! But I've got until May at least, and don't even know it's a girl for sure. smile

Starts with an M unfortunately, but I've always loved Malachi, no idea if it's unusual or not. I also like Donnacha (sp?).

Tiernan....pron Teer nan
Tadgh......pron Tiiiieg.....long I as in lie
Fiachra....pron Fee ak ra
Darragh....Dar ah
Donnagh....Done ah
Conal
Sean

I think part of the problem is that I love ds3s name so much that nothing comes close to being as perfect as it. I hated it at first but it really suits him now.

Doesn't help that exp has a massive family and they have used loads of names up already.

Declan/Eamon/Sean are all in use
Malachy is very close to one of my boys names already
Donnacha - not sure how you would pronounce it?
Torin - is that pronounced how it sounds?
Lorcan was on the list for ds3 and I think would go quite well with his name. Will suggest it to exp.
I don't like Quin or Neill but exp has always loved Niall, I don't mind it but it doesn't grab me.
Tate - I like this name at the moment because ice been watching American xfactor blush and love country music.
Tiernan is on the list, I have trouble remembering how to say it though.
Dara/Darragh I like but would give ds4 almost an identical name to a tv personality.
Conal I quite like like but am trying to avoid giving the boys the same initials. Which vetoes Cillian unfortunately as its grown on me since it was suggested for ds3.

I don't really mind whether the name is Irish or not to be honest, although its important to ex. And I think having (2 common Irish/English named children and 1 typically irish named) one name different to the rest would seem odd. So will stick to the Irish names for the moment I think. I can't really argue against it seeing as I have no suggestions of my own to offer up.

The list so far contains

Lorcan
Tiernan

Thank you all smile

Tristan?

I forgot about this thread blush - thank you for all the suggestions.

My ds3s name has been suggested a few times best name in the world ever

Lorcan is growing on me, and although I don't like Finn, ex keeps suggesting Finnbar. Would you get laughed st if your name was Finnbar though?

YouCanBe Thu 29-Nov-12 10:09:42

I prefer Lorcan to Finnbar myself.

With regard to Finbarr, Viz is still going ...

Lorcan is good - how about Lachlan?

Mu1berries Thu 29-Nov-12 13:17:02

Diarmuid

that's a fabulous name. I quite like Lorcan too. Wouldn't be mad about Finbar.

Padraig has so many different spellings. I love Patrick though.

Mu1berries Thu 29-Nov-12 13:19:41
