My husband is a huge Inspector Morse fan and I love names that are creative, unique but have a classic feel to them, so nothing too boho or of the moment. We've come up with Endeavour Valentine... Slightly worried it'll be Dev for short which makes me think of that awful bloke in Corrie!

What do you think? Too bonkers for boy?!

I think the real issue is that, as has already been said, The Endeavour was a very famous ship.

Even if the kid's don't know about it initially, they'll learn about it at school.

Adults will already think it's a bit boat-y.

A lot of the ship names are virtue names, lots of potential.
I'm a big fan of Master and Commander with Russell Crowe, good name if we have an accidental baby. Surprise!

Loving Surprise!!

Another vote for Dexter Valentine over Endeavour Valentine. Am the age that Dexter makes me think of gorgeous husky Dynasty voice. Or Dexter Fletcher in Press Gang hmm
Dexter Valentine - thriller writer
Dexter Valentine - porn star... Oh.
Endeavour Valentine - boat.
