Help - can't name ds4 - here's our shortlist....

(66 Posts)

So I have 3 boys and ds4 is due in 9 weeks....

So far I have a George, Thomas and Ollie.

We have a shortlist of names which we like but struggling to come to a decision and DH and I have different favourites.

Shortlist is:
Monty (Montague) - bit concerned that too much like a dog's name and the Monty Python connection!
Hugo
Henry (DH doesn't particularly like it)
Theo (Theodore)
Edward (but couldn't use Ted as short name as with our surname would be a clothes label!)

Can't remember the other names we liked as they are on a list at home but will add on to this thread later!

Any other suggestions welcomed!

James?

I have a Thomas and an ollie, if dc3 is a boy I like the name Max.

Theo or Hugo from your list.

Though my first thought was James - goes well with your other names.

Of the George's, Thomas', and Ollie's I know, their siblings are:
Arthur
Frank
Daniel

Or, how about:
Alexander
Nicholas
Jacob
Benedict
Noah
Issac
Samuel
Joseph
Leo
Harrison

(sorry for any repeats!)

Another vote for Henry, it seems to match your others children's names the best.

Edward nn Eddie

I really like Henry!

Once again I've been foiled by the fact that I was only looking at page one....I'll have a quick look down to make sure you've not already excluded lots of these options and then I'll sheepishly move away!

Hi Stealth!

Theodore/Theo
Samuel/Sam
Alexander/Alex
Harry
Jacob/Jake
Joseph/Jo/Joey
Charles/Charlie
Dominic/Dom

How come I can find all these ideas for others but cutting our list from 5 of each to one is seemingly impossible! xxx

Hugo or Theo, both excellent names. I find Monty very 'doggy' to be honest. Congratulations!!!

clary that made me laugh! Yes we do - so maybe I should go for a Colin to get the full setgrin

Josh?
Harry?
Nicholas?
Joe?
Jacob?
Douglas?
Robin?
Toby?
Duncan?

I like most of your list, but Freddie is great.

Not Archie. There are thousands of 3 year old Archies.

I love Henry

I like Theo(dore), but I'd you're worried about clothes labels it is sometimes also shortened to Ted I am working on DH to use it if DC2 is a boy.

ChippingInNeedsSleepAndCoffee Fri 11-Jan-13 05:44:04

Monty I like this best out of your list and think it's a good fit with your other boys.

Hugo - No, hu go
Henry (DH doesn't particularly like it) Not another one!!
Theo (Theodore) I don't like it

Edward - Eddie ?

Hugo or Henry

Britchic Fri 11-Jan-13 05:02:40

Hugo.... we have one and he is Hughie as a nn.
I love Sam too.... but our Sam is one of 4 in his year - ouch!!
Also like Theo from your list.
Good luck!

Ooh yes, Samuel. Lovely.

OP loving your name ideas. My fave of your suggestions is Henry but if DH is not keen that;s not good. I also like Edward. Don't do alliteration, it's often a bad sign for some reason (IME anyway)

Never mind a fashion label, I see you already live with Dr Who btw grin

I actually love all of your choices (one's my DS's name).
For some reason, Louis came to mind. Also, have you thought about Benedict instead of Benjamin?

amck5700 Thu 10-Jan-13 23:48:54

Daniel - been said before but was first name that sprung to mind
Hayden
David
Jacob
Keir
Miles

Bakingtins Thu 10-Jan-13 22:33:59

Jonathan - he could be Jonty as a NN if you liked Monty.
Reuben
Daniel
Isaac
Harry/Henry

Hugo was top of our list for ds1 but is very popular where I am though I do love name and love love love theo. personallyI would avoid Edward with your surname. How about Alex? Or Jamie?

MajesticWhine Thu 10-Jan-13 21:48:58

From your list, I really like Theo and Henry.
I love Edward too, but would be put off for the reason you gave.
Not keen on Monty or Hugo.
