The surname rhymes with 'Killer', so names ending in -er are out. I like names like Leo, Isaac, Hugo, Arlo, Kit, but have just realised (to my horror) that three syllable names like Alisdair have a much better ring!

Don't like Alisdair (it's a nice name, but I have a lisp). Can you suggest any others? (preferably without 's' sounds! Z is fine ..)

I love Jonathan, but if you combine it with DP's surname you get the name of a famous paedophile shock !

I have a lisp too, and it's typical that all the names I like begin with an S.
Yeah I thought of Dominic too.
Elijah,
Jonathan,
Zachary,
Erm erm erm I think that's it.

Xavier

It is annoying, sometimes I get really conscious of it and try to avoid using S words grin I love Elijah too would put it on the list if if we had anymore dc.
