I like Patrick. How about Fraser? Or Fergus?

I think any names from England Ireland Scotland or Wales are alright.

I like Patrick and Hugo from your list.

Love Hamish, Tristan and Rowan. Or how about Quentin? Or Reuben?

Frank is lovely, we had Francis nn Frank on our list. I also like Patrick and Wilfred. If you like Hamish what about Seamus? Less connotations of small snappy terriers!

I love Hugo. It's on my list for DC3.

My girls list is massive. I have 4 names for a boy!

Rowan
Bryn love this, but first house I remember was Bryn something in the wilds of Wales.
I think actually would work better out side Wales where it isn't in the street names.

Sebastian

Patrick, All the Pats I know are Patricia's
So I have trouble with this.

Ross, best looking boy in the school

I really think that it's fine to use Scottish names if you aren't Scottish, or Welsh if you aren't Welsh.....

From your list I love Bryn and Rowan!

Am only early preg, but this is so so different to my preg with DD I am irrationally convinced its a boy (plus conceived 3 days after ov by my reckoning... A, ummmm, surprise preg!)

Anyway, what do you think of the below?

Sebastian
Hamish (but we have no Scottish links - can't use, right?)
Wilfred
Hugo
Frank (v special family name)
Bryn (but we have no Welsh links - cant use?)
Patrick
Ivo (family name)
Lucian
Tristan
Rowan
Angus
Sidney (family name)
Thomas
Frederick
