DS is Harris. DH and I commit the Mumsnet sin of liking surname-y names. We are Scottish though where it is more acceptable. DC2 is due next month and we are trying to find a name we both like enough to use. We have a girl's name we like.

Some boy's names we like so far are:
Cooper
Campbell
Cameron
Fletcher
Ramsay
Leighton
Murray

But none of these seem quite right. Please give me some more suggestions!

Today's favourite is Ross. I think we're just going to have to pull a name out of a hat. Or hope for a girl! We have 1 month before baby is here.

Arf at Olivia lurking. grin You can't do it Olivia, you'll never live it down. The shame!!! You need to have an MN approved name only. shock

I love surname first names for boys - especially ones with a Scots or irish bent - they are so strong and manly and rugged and dashing.

And I don't care. grin

One of my sons has one of the names mentioned on here, and it is very, very unusual - have yet to meet another one. I suspect there many be a baby or three lurking in the UK with the name now but he is nearly 14. And no, I'm not telling. It's his name, and I'm preserving it for posterity and exclusivity.

The MN approved names I am currently getting include ice and aslice (!)
I have used up lots of boys names and am v open to suggestions

Ooh I missed that it was twins! Congratulations! Although I'd be offended by all those gin references for names if I were you. What do they take you for? Some kind of out of control lush? shock

well if you weren't before you certainly soon will be

My vote goes to Chaz and Dave. It has a very classy ring to it.

My sister had twins as DCs 3 & 4. She had four under five at one point. She eventually resurfaced after around 9 years of never leaving the house. grin

I have a Cooper and I absolutely love the name. Ir is very well received in Scotland. My English family were somewhat different, clearly they have no taste.

Other names I like

Campbell
Murray
Austin

Oh god. That is going to be me. DS1 will be 5y9m

Oops. Sorry. grin

Here, have some gin. No, go on, have it. Put it under the sink for later. wine

Flynn or Quinn?

McGregor, Mac for short.

Both my DC have this as their middle name (outs self and waves to anyone who knows me. smile)

Or Griffin?

Oh no, we're having a wobble. DC2 is coming by ELCS on Thursday and we've just changed our minds on the girls name and now are undecided in the boy name. Argh!
