And what were the names you liked but didn't use?

Niall. We really didn't like anything else and are now struggling to think of another boy's name in case this one's a boy! And I had no idea of the existence of bloody One Direction before I named him.

Chose Noah.

Briefly considered Oscar, Reuben and Blake <- so glad this last one was just a quick consideration, hate it now!

We have a Jack and a Toby... Also like Rory smile

Sosyermaw Tue 10-Dec-13 20:23:06

We have Max and Zac.

Liked Noah, Rory, Luke, Sam and Brodie.

Joseph. He's 14 now and it's suited him at every stage of his life so far.

He was going to be Ciaran, but when he was born it just wasn't 'his' name.

Loveyouthree Tue 10-Dec-13 20:39:20

Adam.

He was Joshua until I was a about 23 weeks pregnant.

DramaAlpaca Tue 10-Dec-13 20:44:08

Nice to see Rory is popular on this thread smile. I have a Rory - I still absolutely love the name & he's 16 now.

We didn't consider anything else, he was Rory Joseph from the 20 week scan. Also, we'd already used up two other favourite names on DS1 & DS2!

pygmy Tue 10-Dec-13 20:45:15

Hector, Finlay and Louis. Using Arthur, John and Felix as middle names.
Another boy would be Edgar Otto or Otto Edgar.

candycrushhater Tue 10-Dec-13 20:48:52

Fraser.

Other choices were Euan or Ruaridh (roo-ray), but he just looked like a Fraser.

I have a ds (7) called Zachary......I liked Noah, Finlay, and Callum

BikeRunSki Tue 10-Dec-13 21:49:05

Samuel
Dd would have been Frederick

WhiteHairReally Tue 10-Dec-13 21:50:20

Edmund (and yes, he's Ed now to everyone except the family, which he actually likes) Hugh and Guy. Did we have a thing about 'U' I'm now wondering, seeing those names lined up like that?

paperdress Tue 10-Dec-13 21:51:28

I liked...
Cassius
Julian
Nico
Sebastian
Rory
Danny

Ds is Bertie. He suits his name and I love it. Has been my favourite name way before old names became fashionable.
Also love Freddie.

Malachy.

I liked Casius, Gabriel, Blaise and Rory.

Chewbecca Tue 10-Dec-13 21:59:47

Toby

Also liked:
Leo
Guy
Rory
Adam

enormouse Tue 10-Dec-13 22:03:38

Ds is Ewan and this was a standout choice for him. We both agreed and had no other alternatives

DS2 - we shortlisted Aidan, Arthur, George and Felix. But we've decided he's going to be called Callum.
