Not ONE single name I like!

(20 Posts)

I am due mid April with DC6. I have driven myself around the twist trying to find a name I like. NOTHING at all is standing out and I've had enough.

It is a boy and at this rate Boy is going to be his name, either that or Six.

Please for the love of my sanity help me find something I like confused

What sort of names do you like? How about looking at the ONS lists of ALL names used last year?

Sextus wink

Are your other children boys?

I have 3 boys already, I gave the first one the only boys name I have ever liked and I have this problem every time!

I STILL don't particularly like ds2 & 3's names blush

The only possibilities so far are Jacob or Oliver but even then that's at a push, they're both nice but just too popular and a bit meh.

I had a look at several different baby name lists from the last few years and still stuck. I am a lost cause! Poor number Six wink

I think you're going to have to tell us a little bit more about what sort of names YOU love. There are lots of lovely names outside the top 250 most popular ones - why don't you list some names you like and we can add suggestions?

Patrick. Cos Patrick Doohan played The Prisoner and he was Number Six.

I have Googled none of the above so it could all be my imagination.

Have to do school run so will be back later. But before I go and completely outing myself, my other DC are called......

Luke (Love his name!)
Zakk (Chosen by exH and still don't like)
Isabel (Love)
Harvey (Never liked, chosen by dp, I agreed as couldn't think of anything else!)
Lottie (Charlotte but never called that other than by Grandad!)

So if anyone has any ideas I will be very grateful.

Can't your other DC choose the name (with final veto by you and DP), so that you can "love the name because your other DC chose it"?

I've just had a Raphael nn Rafa and get lots of compliments (it's dp's granddad's name so not hugely original) It's unusual but still a name iyswim

I've got a Joshua and I love it. If I have another DS (unlikely at present) I would quite like a Reuben - lovely lovely name smile

Rupert. Heard it on One Born Every Minute last night from the Latvian woman and thought it was very cute! Well, cute for a baby, not sure about when he grows up though...
