I really like slightly unusual boys names. Mainly because I'm a teacher and I've been put off a lot of boys names over the years!
Any inspiration for me? Xx

They're great ideas. I've added loads to my list smile
Any more?
I liked beau but have been put off by people's reactions to it. I also like Arlo and Seve (dh not keen. It's a footballer apparently!)
