I am 100% decided on Jarvis for our third son, however the husband is 100% set on Wolfie (Wolfgang full name).

I think we need to find an alternative which suits us both so at least we can go to the hospital with each of our names, plus a name we each like.

Parameters are:

- musical link (e.g Jarvis Cocker, Iggy Pop, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
- not made up or a musician's last name (like Jagger)
- fits with his brother's names - Theodore and Felix

I'm really not after critiques of the names Jarvis, Iggy and Wolfie, just alternatives in the same vein. Many thanks smile

I like Dylan, Otis, Jasper (not musical but I think it goes with your other boys names)
I know you said you don't want a critique but - Wolfie? Don't you just think Citizen Smith???

I like Syd!

I knew someone who called her son Bon after Bon Scott. It really suited him.

Not sure. My husband wanted Wolfie for a boy and Flame for a girl; that way they wouldn't have to change their ames when they're famous rock guitarists. He even referred to my bump as Wolfie for a while but I managed to steer him clear in the end. Wolfgang is Eddie Van Halen's son's name aparently. Have you tried googling other rock stars to find out what they have named their children to get some ideas (obviously giving things like Moon Unit a relatively wide berth)?

Sebastian would go well with Theodore and Felix.

My DS is named Nicky, after Nicky Wire from Manic Street Preachers. What other bands/singers do you like? (I love Jarvis, by the way!)
