So, 9 weeks to go till dc3 is due. He's a boy. We had decided on a name but have both gone off it.
I have done a list, so has DH. They are quite different? Which one do you prefer? And what is your preferred name from either list?

Mine:
Axel
Brodie
Coby
Caleb
Edward ( Eddie)
Linus
Remy
Claude or jean-Claude

DH's
Aaron
Blake
Fletcher
Fergus
Hugh or Hugo (this would not go with our surname)
Mark (we have a son called Marcus, why would be think its ok to use mark???)
Francis (frank)
Victor
Vincent

Or can you suggest a name that we both might like?

From your list I like Edward and from your DH list I like Vincent (Vinnie) and Frank not sure about the others.

What about

Reuben
Gabriel
Zander

Linus & Fergus-both fab names!

I like Hamish, Rufus & Silas.

I like DH's list, sorry OP.

In particular, Aaron, Fergus, Hugo, Francis.

Love Frank
Quite like Brodie

chickydoo Mon 16-Sep-13 14:51:39

The more I think about it, I love Francis for a boy. Frankie when he's little, Frank when he's older. Love it!

TwoTearsInABucket Mon 16-Sep-13 14:51:47

I don't mind Aaron, fergus, or Francis. To be fair to DH.
He doesn't like any of mine!

Neither sorry.
Edward is the best off both lists.

LillyNotOfTheValley Mon 16-Sep-13 15:02:40

From your list I like Axel and Edward, from your DH's Victor and Vincent.

To "go" with Marcus, I would suggest Adam, Arthur, Aubrey, Maximilian.

Allalonenow Mon 16-Sep-13 15:09:44

I prefer your DH's list, and especially Fergus and Vincent (also Hugo but it's a none starter)
The only one of your list I like is Claude, if you are in the UK, I don't think Jean-Claude would work very well.

EldritchCleavage Mon 16-Sep-13 15:15:03

I'm afraid I think your DH's list is better too, though not by much! What about:

Edwin
Gilbert
Dorian (I know one, it's a cool name)
Wulfstan (not a joke, I actually love it but my (sensible) DH vetoed it!)
Asher
Reuben
Hector
Ivo
Cyrus
Davis (my nephew's best friend is a Davis, quite nice)
Peter (due a revival)
Melvin
Harvey
Allen

I prefer dh list

TwoTearsInABucket Mon 16-Sep-13 16:00:43

Dammit! DH is winning!

Although we both seem to have bad taste wink

I like Francis Remy.

Stat Mon 16-Sep-13 16:07:47

I like Linus and Francis/Frank

Coby, Caleb and Remy are kind of ok, so I guess I prefer your list over all.

absentmindeddooooodles Mon 16-Sep-13 16:11:28

I like edward and victor.
How about:

Sebastian
Reuben
Nathaniel
Jude
William
Oliver
Myles
Seth
Christopher
Benjamin
Patrick
Byron

absentmindeddooooodles Mon 16-Sep-13 16:12:05

Oh wait and I like linus.

Jesse?

MummyBeerest Mon 16-Sep-13 16:14:12

Yours! I love Axel and Caleb.

SprinkleLiberally Mon 16-Sep-13 16:18:07

Nothing leaping out really. Fergus ok.

I like Angus. Logan is nice. Peter is v cute. As is Johnny
Any good?

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 16-Sep-13 16:19:10

Don't like any of your list, sorry. Of your DH's I like Aaron and Fergus.

Other suggestions here I like are Seth, Ivo and Rufus.

I love Remy (taught a gorgeous one once) from your list but prefer your DH's too, sorry. Especially Fergus, Francis and Vincent.

But every Aaron I have ever taught (or met!) has been badly behaved. Sorry to anyone who has a lovely Aaron, that's just my anecdotal evidence!

Hazelbrowneyes Mon 16-Sep-13 16:31:38

Caleb or Fletcher. I actually prefer your list OP wink

TwoTearsInABucket Mon 16-Sep-13 16:32:07

I did wonder about Aaron for that reason!

I like Jesse. Don't think DH will tho.

My fave off my list is Axel. I dunno, I really struggle with boy's names.

Pachacuti Mon 16-Sep-13 16:32:46

I prefer your DH's list overall, except Mark which is just bizarre under the circumstances. My two top choices would be Fergus and Linus, though, so one from each list.

I'd say that Caleb, Edward and Linus from your list are closest to your DH's style, while Blake and Fletcher from his are closest to your style. Thinking along those sorts of lines, what about
Archer
Asher
Austin
Baxter
Evan
Giles
Isaac
Noah
Owen
Reuben

elcranko Mon 16-Sep-13 16:41:12

I can't choose which list is my favourite as there are names on both lists I like and names on both that I don't! My favourites from each list are Caleb and Aaron. I like Caleb the most out of these two smile
