Just that really. Expecting DS1 and thinking of Casper, but want to explore other / more Scandinavian options.

What do you think of Sven? Is Thor too odd?

Or how about Gustav?

Magnus.

I love Thorfinn.

I know a couple of Scottish children called 'Magnus' and a 'Sweyn'.

Eric?
Rognvald?
Erlend?
Olaf?
Tom?

Wilhelm, thorlief or Lars
I like Scandinavian names (partly because my name is Scandinavian in origin)

Wildwaterfalls Sun 20-Oct-13 14:29:43

Lovely suggestions here. Thank you.

Like Jonas, Linus, Magnus, Morten and Erik particularly.

Interesting to hear Sven not a good idea... Still the football manager memory?

Interested to hear thoughts on Gustav if anyone has any.

Some of these names sounds like the grandparents of my friends :P no offence, but I haven't come across many Sven, Sören or Leif under 60...

My favourite Scandi names are August, Alfred, Frank and Gustav smile
