I appreciate this thread has been started 1,000 times already. We are struggling so much with a boys name but have agreed we both like old man names. Trust me that's a start! We still have 8 weeks or so, plenty of time! Names we like but can't use:
Jack
Harry
Alfie

Thank you x

Well. I depend what you think of as old fashioned depends on how old you are. All of the names suggested by ilive are perfectly normal names of my contemporaries.

Btw, I am not an old woman! Ilive, my 40 ish friends are called Alan and Richard, you young whippersnapper

That's because those names are 'classic' cheer, not because you're old!

Certainly not a lot of little Alans running around now a days
