Hi

We are looking for Scottish names and have thought of lots that we like but are not sure that we love any of them. We like names that are not overly popular/common, but do not like anything made-up sounding. We have tested some ideas out by subtly dropping them in conversation with friends but to date these ideas have been met with hoots of laughter! shock confused Having seen some of the great ideas you have come up with for other people, I thought I would put it out there...

For girls the current shortlist is: Flora, Ishbel, Florence and Kate Anne.

For boys it is: Archie (a family name but concerned it is too popular at present), Blair, Cameron, Hamish, Gregor, Monty, Ruaridh, Ranald and Lorne.

Any thoughts/ ideas...?

Love Gregor and Diamuid

I would struggle to name a Scottish girls name though. I can think of lots of boys ones. Fiona?

I like all your original list with the exception of Florence.

Lots of lovely names suggested especially Gregor, I also like Keir (I have a Ciar) and Kerr. Can I also throw in Grant, Cairn, Bruce, Nairn, Tiernan & Moray?

For girls: Lorna, Shona, Kirsty, Fallon, Ismay or Morven?

Also Craig or Iain for boys

Katrine or Catriona, Morna or Rhona for girls.
