Hi, we have a 1-month-old son and have yet to find a perfect name sad I feel absolutely terrible about it... I like relatively classic names and DH likes more modern; I have yet to find one which suits both of our tastes and I'm wondering if you could help? smile
My favourite:
Charles, but I agreed to go with just Charlie (for DH) and this was his name for a little while...
Edward - we liked the NN Eddie, but DH said he would rather have just Eddy and that was a no from me!
Matthew, I adore Matty for a little boy and Matt for when he's older (all the family love this too)
Joseph - Joey suits him, IMHO, but DH doesn't like it...
Zack/Zach/Zac - DH would like just Zack (no way, it doesn't suit him at all) I liked Zachary and Isaac (NN Zach/Zac) - Isaac suits him, Zachary not so much!
Benjamin/Bennett
Alexander
Oliver - adore this, but know millions
Frederick - NN Freddie
Patrick - not a fan of any NNs...
DH likes:
Boston
Lincoln
Hayden
Lewis (I actually like this a lot, but not sure it suits him, sigh...)
Alfie
Leo
Jay
Kyle/Kai

Charlie & Lewis by far from your list.

Congrats on your boy!

Thank you smile the problem is, we can't really agree on the names I've written in the thread, so was looking for some suggestions!

buddhasbelly Tue 29-Dec-15 12:08:25

What about Jacob? Would suit dh's jay choice if you also like Jacob!

Oops, forgot to say that big sister is Eden - Edie smile

Eden and Jacob, it has a nice ring to it! Also like PPs suggestions of Thomas and Samuel, I forget how many days you have to register his name OP?

Love Max, will add that too - oooooo, Robin is cuteee! Not sure DH will approve , but that kind of suits him smile

If you both like lewis just use that.?

pieceofpurplesky Tue 29-Dec-15 12:20:20

Matthew or Zach from your list.
Like Jacob. Lewis/louis is very popular --and often get the nn Le--w
How about Jonah?

TimeGoesBy31 Tue 29-Dec-15 12:20:47

Really don't know if Lewis suits him... So that's why I'm holding back - do love the idea of Louis though - what about Louie? I just worry it won't be pronounced the French way

TimeGoesBy31 Tue 29-Dec-15 12:21:41

Ooo, I absolutely adore Jonah!!! Thank you

ThatIsNachoCheese Tue 29-Dec-15 12:23:47

I agree on Jacob. Jacob and Eden sounds great.
I have a Jacob and also on my list were:
Alex
Luca
Daniel
I have left out Ben and Joseph as they were on your list already.
Good luck smile
