Tom

He was going to be Rory or Henry but at the 20 week scan having recovered from the shock that he wasn't actually another girl I looked at him in the screen and thought "that is my boy and his name is Tom" smile

Ted.
Was possibly a William Or a Robert.

Oliver, known as Ollie
Short listed: Thoedore (Theo), Christopher (Kit), Thomas (Tom), Joshua (Josh) & Jacob (Jake). Think I may have an obsession with names that can be shortened.

Cian, we didn't consider any other names grin

Is Rory having a huge popularity spurt then? I can't believe how many of you have mentioned it. I have a Rory, he's 21. We have come across a smattering of them over the years, but it has never been an especially popular name. However, this thread implies that it soon will be! I still love it - it transcends all ages/classes/types for me. Classic without being boring.

Alistair

I liked Bruce, Angus and Alexander (we're not even Scottish)

We have a Sebastian and Oliver
Next boy would be a combination of:
Indio
Jude
Jupiter
Serge
Etienne

Yes, his name has been totally ripped to shreds on here.

We didn't really consider anything else, it was the only name we both liked.

CockyMcChicken Wed 11-Dec-13 09:58:35

Also like Harrison, Henry, George and Freddie. I also love Fabian but dh hated it.

I wanted Izaak or Robert (both vetoed by OH)

OH wanted Seweryn (pronounced Sev-Erin) - I laughed in his face

MrsT2007 Wed 11-Dec-13 20:24:26

I have never met a little Rory yet but I bet it gets more popular. It's such a lovely, classic name but oft bypassed for others.

Beachballfamily Thu 12-Dec-13 15:20:24

Rory - he's 5 now and we've never met another young Rory. Getting worried now that there will be lots more soon!

Also considered

Alasdair
