Choices for boy #3

(29 Posts)

I've name changed as some of my other posts and details on this post will give me away and I know a few real life friends who use the site too...

Anyway, we've recently found out we're having a third boy and struggling to decide on a name or at least one we agree on.

Suggestions so far:
Felix
Alexander
Dominic
Barnaby

Any thoughts/further suggestions?

For info, we already have a Casper and Sebastian.

I just LOVE Dominic, think it's underused but I love the sound of it. Same characteristics as Nicholas, in my mind. Goes well with your other DCs too.

Very crisp C & T sounds in your kid's names. I like it.

IMO Felix too popular, Barnaby too soft, Alexander too dull.

DOMINIC!

Sorry if that doesn't make sense, I'm so tired!

Thank you, this is what I need to hear, it helps!

Dominic is my favourite too

Barnaby - love it
But Dominic good too.
Dislike the other two, sorry.

I like Felix and Alexander.

I love Barnaby. I think Dominic is a bit square sounding?! Felix and Alexander are nice but very common. What about Atticus or Nathaniel or Beau?

I like Atticus, but concerned it's a bit too trendy and of the moment. Quite like Nate, but not sure of Nathaniel - seems quite soft??

There's a surprising lot of love for Dominic! Husband's #1 choice is Alexander. Mine is Barnaby.
Felix is a late addition (I'm more keen - husband not so into it) and Dominic we both kind of like, but not sure.

Look on the Granfather forum for some good names.

Julian was the name that came too mind.

Do you have a link to the grandfather forum? Thanks!

Love your DS names OP.

Names that would go well-

Louis/Lewis
Laurence
Rex
Jude

Like Dominic and Felix from your names but Rex slightly stronger and better with your DS names.

I think Dominic goes really well with your DS names

Magnus
Arthur

I like Dominic with your other names too.

All great names, but I think that Felix goes the best with your other two.

Or how about Otto, Magnus or Bruno?

Love Alexander and Barnaby (our fave for DS2 at min!)

I love Sebastian and Felix and Alexander. They are all on my future baby list. Along with Thomas and Atticus.
Congrats! thanks

Some good ideas/thoughts here - will show the husband! Thanks all.

I would go for Alexander I think but I like them all and they go well with your other dc names.
