We already have a DS beginning with an A and thinking names for DC2 but boys names are proving rather difficult.

We like quite 'different' names ideally something that can't be shortened! TIA

Ash - really hard to shorten though some people assume it is a shortened version of something else - it isn't smile

We have an Andrew and I've never met another one of his generation. Can be shortened though, but I know lots my age who haven't been.

Armand is lovely.

We already have one of those FRIGG smile hence why its so tough with number 2. That was a perfect name from the start with us!

I know 2 brothers, Arran & Aiden

Yes,this may also be why I'm struggling for a boys name with DC3, we loved Arlo from the very beginning.

I dont know if this helps,but this is my current short list:

Rufus
Caspar
Asa

Thanks ladies - lots of food for

Amazing what some people have suggested for names that can't be shortened! Almost everything can and will be shortened - or when he gets older it will probably get lengthened!
