Surname-y boys names

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!

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!

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?

Flynn or Quinn?

Oops. Sorry. grin

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Thought of Massie today.

There's a few I like but can't have for various reasons (close friends or family members, people I don't like with the same name).

We are liking Flynn and Ridley. Haven't raised Colby with DH yet but I like it too.

MacCrackles Sun 14-Jul-13 22:04:30

Ooh, almost forgot as hadn't thought of it in surname terms but Cole was a favourite if DC had been a DS!

MacCrackles Sun 14-Jul-13 22:01:14

I love Cameron and also Fraser, Murray, Murphy and Spencer.

JollyShortGiant Sun 14-Jul-13 21:54:08

I'm loving Macaulay at the moment but I can't see DH going for it. I shall let you know when we come to a decision!

I knew a very handsome and cool Ramsay once, I've always loved the name but my DH not so keen. I knew a Hammond too, not so cool! Campbell is gorgeous and Cameron is good too.
