Me and hubby have been discussing baby names and although we have got a girl's name we like there is not a single boys name that either of us can say, "I like it."

We are having a sexing scan in 3 weeks and hopefully they will say it's a girl otherwise we are screwed grin

We just don't like ANYTHING!!

I need some inspiration - what are you ladies calling your boys lately???

Maybe if it's a boy you should just give him a girl's name.

What girls names do you like ?
Just to get an idea of what sort of thing you like smile

I found girls names easier than boys.

The girls name we like is Zoe Caroline (and then our surname which is 1 syllable) smile

My husband is looking through lists of boy's names and of course is trying to be funny by only calling out the ridiculous ones..... smile

on the maybe but not convinced list were

Joel
Noah
Samuel

Princess - My husband just suggested Hunter actually but it made me think of the Paranormal Activity films grin He also put Rueben and Isaac on the table!! Are our husbands spiritual twins??? smile

Gymbob - Sydney just makes me think of that very strange creature out of Ice Age smile

Joseph/Joe

Have you considered Jupiter?

Writerwannabe83 Sat 21-Sep-13 21:36:46

I like Joseph - but it has too many religious connotations for us. It is a lovely name though smile

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 21-Sep-13 21:36:49

I think they are! I vetoed Hunter on the basis I'm a vegetarian, so not exactly pro-hunting! grin I secretly think its a very cool name!

( I think I was on the conception "bus" when you found out you were pregnant smile )

Isaac is my favourite boys name. Did you know it means Laughter?

I was the same, as soon as I found out I was pregnant we had picked a girls name, couldn't think of a single boys name so it was inevitable that I'd be carrying a boy! We argued over names for about 3 weeks before deciding on Harry x

Writerwannabe83 Sat 21-Sep-13 21:41:52

Alison - my husband likes Harrison smile

waffly - Jupiter??? grin I'm thinking not......

DrHolmes Sat 21-Sep-13 21:42:16

I like Reuben!. Icarus, Jack, Leo, Conan, Alfie.

Inclusionist Sat 21-Sep-13 21:42:36

If you love Zoe then:

Zac (Issac)
Xavier
Zain
Zale
Zephyr (means 'wind' - love this!)

or.. Siegfried nn Ziggy??

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 21-Sep-13 21:43:14

Oh yes, and Alfie is a lovely name!
