I'm due in 11 weeks, with our second son (fourth child) and there are literally NO names. Other 3 have quite unusual names, but I can't say 'cos I've not told many people I'm pregnant.

We considered Frederick nn Fred, but I don't like Freddie.
We like Walt / Walter, but it's a bit of a mouthful.
He likes Sun (so he can say "this is my son, sun". No, really.)

I quite like Soren, and Sorell, but the latter is apparently a girls name? Any thoughts? Would I be frightfully cruel to call my fourth born either of these?

And any suggestions? I like quirky, slightly out there but not ridiculously wild. For example : Baxter (a no "'cos it's "a dogs name") Valentine, Wilbur, Quintin, Serafin.

Definitly a boys name. Like Åsa is a girls name. Dont mess with it!;) dont understand the trend of naming boys Asa at the moment....poor things

I have never heard of a girl called Asa! It is a male Old Testament name.

Åsa is a very very common scandinavian girls name.

Soren is definitely a boys name. I really like it.

Baxter is nice too. How about dexter?

I dislike sun, but how about sonny?

I wouldn't risk Frederick if you don't want Freddie.

Other names Felix, Stanley, Magnus?

There's a Soren in my son's nursery. He's gorgeous, love the name and really suits him!! Never heard it until we moved here last year.

My son is Gabriel, they make a nice change amongst all the Alfie, Henry, Harry's and Zach's :D
