Stealing the idea from the girls thread someone else started because some great names came up on that thread, but I'm pretty sure this baby is a boy so need some inspiration!

Floyd

We toyed with Floyd for DS2's middle name, but chose something slightly more conservative, in the end.

It isn't pronounced like the currency, it is pronounced "Ay-ross". It is DS2's middle name.

jemima I got the pronunciation from the first post about Euros...my point was that it looks like the currency. It is such a common word now as currency that is how anyone would read it if coming across it in anything written, surely?

Oops terribly sorry jemima just noticed it is your DS's middle name blush perhaps it is different associations in different places...If it is any consolation my DS's name is Isaac and the amount of people that spell it Issac and actually pronounce it that way astounds me!

Cornelius - used for about 5 generations of sons in my family tree , but DH vetoed it!

Seoraidh, pronounced Shorey.
