We already have a Harris smile DC2 is due in August so we have lots of time!

Here is our shortlist so far:
Leighton
Ramsay
Campbell
Maxwell

Vetoed names: Innes, Cormack, Lachlan, Forbes, Blair, Cameron.

Are there any other names that we'd like? Keen to have a long list that we can whittle down at a later date!

Hector was used in both mediaeval and more modern times in Scotland when never in England. Like Alexander and David.

Arran

and not a name as such, but we almost called our eldest Blaven after the mountain in Skye (Blà Bheinn in Gaelic)

Ooo, I love Strachan. DH is unhappy with Murdo, sadly.

I think we had probably better not choose another island! Not that they'll be said together all that often once tthey're past primary school... But that's often enough for me!
