I am not thinking of Paris, Brookyln etc but or DS is named after a small village in the north with a slight spelling change. Any interesting place names you think would work for a boy, don't have to be from this country but not one you need to pronounce with an accent. Awaiting with interest
There are some really good choices there. Really like Brodie, Meryn, Indiana and Denver but not sure DH will agree. 3 of you actually listed DS's name which was a real surprise to me. We just thought it might be nice to follow suit with names. Have worked with kids all my life so choosing names that don't remind me of (most of)them is tricky.
I also know an Arran, VBisme, wonder if it's the same one?? He was definitely named after the Scottish island so it's not that his parents couldn't spell Aaron (which I would pronounce with a long A, anyway).
DH says that if he ever got cats, he would name them Scratchwood and Tibshelf (after service areas on the M1) <irrelevant>
Drastic, wouldn't go for Indiana either if surname was Jones. Thanks for all the great ideas folks. Like Orlando but prob because I fancy Mr Bloom (not from the allotment!) Will try some of these on DH and see how he feels
