Hi all
I'm after suggestions for an unusual/not frequently used boy's name please! I love Rory and was planning on using that (I am not pregnant yet but like to plan ahead) but a really good friend of mine has just called her baby that so I can't now (am sure she wouldn't mind but I would find it odd..)
My other two dcs have a "normal" first name then a more "different" middle name.

Cathal is caw hul but the caw part is pronounced quite quickly.

Jago - Cornish for James/Jacob (my DS middle name)

Sholto - Scottish, hoping to call next DS it

Victor
Gregory
Dominic
Quentin
Tristan

are all lovely, classic boys names that aren't overused at the moment.

Dara - my only Irish suggestion
Caspar
Felix
Jude
Stephen (not unusual but haven't heard it as a baby's name for ages)
Was going to suggest Gabriel but Fergus beat me to it
Thought of Keir too but amck5700 got there yesterday

I'm planning on using Rory if DC3 turns out to be a boy. My DS is called Nicholas. A proper name, but one you don't hear an awful lot.

Failing that, how about Patrick?

If you like Gaelic names what about Aonghas (Angus), Domhnall (Donald - pronounced Doh-all), Malcolm, Tormond, Aidan, Columba, Ninian, Mungo, Murdo, Struan, Brodie, Innes, Cailin (Ka-line), Cameron, Munro, Lewis, Cashal, one of the various spellings of Calum, Ryan, (trying to think of more but it's late - these are all ones I've heard associated with my children's Gaelic school).

I'm only really much use with Scottish/Gaelic type boys names!!

I'm interested to know what Lennon and Conor's middle names are - so we can go for that level of weird?

I'm dying to use Cosmo!

Its my son's name Unnamed , we chose it because its a proper, real name although not overly common (as I'm frequent), the double n spelling is more popular. Where we live anyway.

Milo is also great! I love Inigo ("you killed my father, prepare to die!") but would be ripe for teasing in my town unfortunately. Asa was a fore-runner for me until OH told me it was the name of an old friend of his and he doesn't want his mates thinking we named a baby after him :/ especially since one of our boys' nicknames is the name of another mate.

UnnamedFemaleProtagonist - No, Conor is the name of one of the OPs boys.

tinkerbelllisa Sun 06-Jan-13 22:22:12

Cathal - i think that how its spelt - pronounced Ca'harl
I am sure I will be corrected if wrong by our friends across the water !
c

Are my eyes deceiving me or has someone said Conor is unusual? shock
