Babba 3 is due in Feb and we have no idea on boys names to go with Poppy and Archie. Our surname is tricky and the best names are those ending in y/ie sound. Names ending in A are a no-no for our surname. So far we have agreed on absolutely nothing!!! How can it be this hard especially when we have had 8 months to think about it!!! Girls names are sorted but we think we are having a boy. Help required please Mummies!!!

Jamie? Not James just Jamie

DH's are so annoying when it come to this baby naming business, they should let us pick grin

What about Hugo, would that work?

Lachlan is a brilliant name, it's Lachie for a nn. You could have Lochlan aka Lockie! Brill envy

Or

Finn,
Logan
Henry
Edward - Eddie or Ted

IMHO - I like Poppy, Archie and Hector

I'm really not keen on Hector, it's a bit much for my tastes, but I think it's better to go for something you agree on, and compromise, instead of pleasing one parent over the other xx

My favourite is Charlie, followed by Bertie and Oscar. The ONLY name hubby and I agree on is Hector and while we both like it neither of us LOVE it. So is it better to go with a name which one of us loves but the other doesn't like, or a name we both like but don't love? And what is the view on Hector?

What about Rory with one of the other spellings like Ruaridh?

Littlecherublegs Thu 17-Jan-13 09:51:58

I know a Poppy with brothers Charlie, Max and Rory (think you,ve already ruled these out though).

Other ie/y ending names:
Barney / Barnaby
Monty
Ollie
Bailey
Timothy
Jonny

Other suggestions:
Owen
Sebastian
Elliot
George
Leo
Milo
Evan

Oscar or Jasper would go nice with your other dc names.

poppydaisy Thu 17-Jan-13 09:26:56

How about these for your babba, considering you like -ie names:
Poppy, Archie and Charlie
Poppy, Archie and Billy
Poppy, Archie and Robbie
Poppy, Archie and Alfie
Poppy, Archie and Willie
Poppy, Archie and Toby
Poppy, Archie and Harry
Poppy, Archie and Bertie

Sasparillo Thu 17-Jan-13 08:43:12

Poppy, Archie & Jack or Harry is Lovely ( you've got the same taste names as me, we've got a Daisy & Charlie and like yours, our surname is a pain! We can't have names that end in n or s sounds! Drives me mad because it eliminates loads of names I like!!! Gggrrr) good luck deciding xx

Thanks lovely people for your suggestions. Poor hubby, desperate for sleep and I'm ready for another names discussion with him!

lucywiltshire Wed 16-Jan-13 23:47:46

love Rory, always have, but hubby says a big fat no. Zach is a definite maybe.

blindworm Wed 16-Jan-13 23:43:02

Max
Sam
Zach/Zachary
Harry
Jack
Oliver
Joshua
Felix
Rory
Daniel
Finn/Finlay (much prefer it spelt Finlay to Finley)
James
Isaac
Alex/Alexander

lucywiltshire Wed 16-Jan-13 23:42:14

Finley is up there as a definite maybe, as is Bertie but I hate Bert - shame as Bertie is one of my faves!

The prob with Alistair is if was shortened to Ali it would rhyme with surname!

amck5700 Wed 16-Jan-13 23:25:56

With Alister you have the joy of picking the spelling - don't use a "d" it's a bit wet according to my OH hmm my youngest's middle name is Alastair (I think!) after his Grandad Alexander - it's all very confusing grin

I said Joe becasue I know brothers Tom and Joe

I like Ted/Teddy/Ned too.

Startail Wed 16-Jan-13 23:25:21

Finley
Love Charlie,
Stevie loads of Steven/Stephen's at my school also my DGradfather and the name DSIS would have called a DS.
Mikey
I've met a Bertie short for Robert, but can't get past Bertie the bus in the Thomas stories.
Davy might light up a few ideas (sorry)
Jamie
Kobee (hmmm?)
Lee
Robbie, Bobbie (Ronnie say's my autocorrect)
Toby
Willie (just no!)

lucywiltshire Wed 16-Jan-13 23:22:19

amck - I was thinking of Edmund earlier - nn either Ned or Teddy. Like Joe a lot. Alister hasn't even been considered - must be the only name we haven't discussed!!

amck5700 Wed 16-Jan-13 23:20:28

George is nice - it was my Dad's name.

Maybe Alister?

amck5700 Wed 16-Jan-13 23:19:07

How about Ed - either Edgar or Edwin rather than Edward?

or Joe/Joseph?
