Ive got lots of girls names that i like. But no boys names that arent already in the family somewhere.

Names that quite i like...
Josh/joshua
Luke/lucas
Alexander
Finlay
Toby

And thats all i can really think of! And i dont even like them that much.

We already have a Ben. Im not keen on the older classic names like George, Harry, Charlie, Alfie. And i dont want anything to wierd. DH likes Thomas (but i have an ex thomas that i cant help thinking of when its mentioned) and James. Which is ok. But my dad is james and didnt really want him named after him.

Help!

Thanks guys. Forgot about Jacob. Love it but newest nephew born october is Jacob! DH best friend Joseph. Is that allowed? Lol. Nicholas is too similar to my name grin

Quite like Daniel and Matthew and Samuel

There you go then:-

Ben and Dan (iel)
Ben and Matt (hew)
Ben and Sam (uel)

Are you ok with the shortened versions? Because i think they will be (with the possible exception of Matthew)

BartBaby Fri 02-Aug-13 09:12:54

I prefer matthew to matt. But prefer sam to samuel. So it depends on the name i suppose. Ben is a benjamin but we never use that

Mark
John
Jonah (Joe)

oh, or David maybe.

Leo
Miles
Christopher
Rory

Hi I think we like all the same names! Struggling to find a name for ds3 which isn't already taken.
Btw I have a Daniel and thought he would be called dan but he is always Daniel. Ds2 always gets the shortened version of his name - I think people will follow your lead on it iyswim.
Very happy to be having a third boy except for the fact I have a huge list of pretty girls names I'll never get to use!
