We already have a Theodore.

DP has vetoed all my suggestions so far - Alexander, Hector and Jude.

He likes William (family name), I like Bill but William is top 10 and maybe too common.

Inspiration for not trendy, less usual, but "proper" names would be gratefully received smile

Peter
Jonah
Frederick

Ooh really like Ambrose and Jonah. DP says Jonah is an unlucky name hmm

We have a Quentin. Or how about Dominic, Patrick or Clement?

I know the biblical Jonah was not very lucky, but Jonah is also the name of my baby nephew who is very sweet and happy, and a much wanted third and brother to two girls so it has a positive connection for me.

Thanks all, still nothing jumping out at me though I do like Caspar and Jasper. Theodore was the only name we could agree on last time so starting to doubt we'll find another one!

I know a Jonah - it's not unlucky. Names do not confer meaning or symbolism on children.

NewbieMcNewbie Sat 19-Oct-13 20:48:08

Btw, I like your suggestions. Don't like William - ubiquitous now.

How about Leo, Max, Miles, Arthur?

Hayden
Gregory
Nicholas
Emerson
Alastair
Hamish
Miles
Piers

Linus and Reuben both going on my list.
