Boys name for number 2...

Found out today we are having a boy! So chuffed!!

We already have one son called Arlo. It was literally the only name we could agree on in my last pregnancy. I absolutely love it now and it suits him down to the ground. Now we're expecting another boy we're having the same dilemma.

The only names we've discussed so far are

Dexter (DH likes, I'm 50/50)
Artie (I like, DH likes but not convinced)
Bowie (All DH, I don't like t at all)
Ezra (both sort of like but lukewarm)

As you can see we don't like traditional, but I don't want it to be too out there.

Any opinions on the above? Would LOVE some suggestions too!!!

I really like Dexter and it's a name I don't hear often.

What about
Ethan
Joseph
Alfie
Damian

Of your list I like Dexter best.
I have a nephew called Ezra but he's Norwegian and lives in Norway so I always associate it with being a "foreign" name.

We really struggled with naming DS, but have already decided that if we have a ds2 he will be Hamish.

Quite like Hugo.

I like Finn / Flynn too but our surname begins with F and DH doesn't like names that alliterate!

Dexter is great. Not keen on others. Theo? Eli?

Ezra. I think Arlo and Ezra are perfect together smile

Am I the only person who thinks "serial killer" when I hear the name Dexter?

Ezra is great. Also suggest Morgan, Myles, Devon, Salix.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 06-Mar-16 20:37:32

Someone upthread suggested Asher.
Arlo and Asher sound really good together.
