I posted on here a few weeks ago looking for unusual but not completely bonkers names for DS1, and for advice on Japanese middle names.

So DS1 is now 3 days old, sleeping happily in his cot, and the winning name was Huxley. Middle name Hiro so he's Huxley Hiro smile

I thought I'd post it here as I'm always keen to see what people choose in the end. We had been looking for something very unusual but not completely bonkers (we were considering Seth, Conrad, a few others) and we think so far we've got it right with Huxley!

Thanks for all those who gave input!

Huxley Hero is a great name! Congrats!!

Hooya Fri 13-Sep-13 15:51:09

Ha Ha squoosh don't worry, we use both Hux and Huck as nicknames, one of the reasons we liked the name!

Well, I have to disagree with you... I think that Huxley Hiro is in fact totally bonkers... in the best way possible. Love it. Nobody's ever going to forget that one, completely original, outlandish and yet at the same time really lovely sounding, two beautifully flowing names and with really nice nickname potential. Fab choices!

Great name!

Hooya Fri 13-Sep-13 19:39:08

Thanks! Jim that is just lovely, thank you! I know we wanted a one of a kind name, and I'm pretty sure it is!
