Recently found out I'm pregnant, and I'm obsessed with finding a boy name and tbh I have been sort of looking since I had my 2yo DS.

I spent so much time stressing over boys names in the last pregnancy and of course he turned out to be a boy, so we settled for a name we liked but didn't love, but we love it now as he has grown into it.

So I want to get on the ball now. I find boys names really hard, but added to that OH likes conventional normal names, think Thomas, Patrick & Daniel. Which are actually quite popular here.

I like unusual (in Northern Ireland) but not unheard of or made up names. Names I like but don't love are:
Oscar
Rhys
Lucas
Cole
Finlay
Oisin (my least favourite)

OH only likes Oisin, we're Irish so to him it's a normal common name.

I've found myself wishing it's a girl so we don't have to go through the stress again.

Btw Girls names are
Georgia
Charlotte
(We both love these)

Please give me some options, bearing in mind it can't be anything too whacky, but just something ever so slightly different.

Colm
Conal
Ciar
Hayden
Miles
Ellis
Rory
Fraser

Like Conal but our friends just named their baby Conall. All the other Irish names are very common here so sort of want to stay away from Irish names.

Also like Jack and Daniel but every other baby is called those around here.

Keep em coming!

Jonah
Edgar
Craig
Gregor
Elliot

Leighton
Emerson

Like Jonah but will never get it past DH, therein lies the problem, we have completely different taste in boy names!

Where do we go from here, any suggestions?

Rowan

Love Finn, but best friends wee boys called that, could have got him convinced on it too! sad

yes, but with Jonah, he can call him Joe - very normal and maybe to his taste?

Love Rowan/Rohan soon but it rhymes with DS's name!! grin

what is your Son called or don't you want to say?

Dylan?

Oooh u may be onto something soon

Declan was the only name he came up with in the last pregnancy, it's a running joke now as he plucked it out of the air as I was putting pressure on him to pick something.

Cohan - we like pd it because it's different without being crazy. Even though he gets called Conan a lot!

Dylan always sound American to me, and it's not even, but your on the right track soon uncommon but not crazy!

Cohan is lovely - maybe we are getting somewhere but i'm running out of ideas :0

Really like Jonah/Joe soon , I met one last wk as was like ooooooo, but told hubs and he kind of turned his nose up. I feel if I got a name I loved I could probably convince him but I just need to get that name.

Torin
Adrian
Kerr
Austin
Jay
Robin

Too wacky apart from Adrian which is v common here. But your sort of on the right path, I like names that are uncommon but everyone still knows them or knows how to spell them soon
