20 week scan tomorrow and hopefully we will also be able to find out the sex.

If dc2 turns out to be another DS, we're struggling a bit because we feel like we picked the best name already for DS smile. His name is Conrad.

We have a long list (well, I do, DH has been hopeless) and I wondered if there were any others we might have missed:

Rufus (current favourite)
Bruno (I LOVE this, but DH is refusing to budge yet to be persuaded)
Rory
Gregory
Roderick (known as Roddy)
Fraser
Fergus
Edgar
Mortimer (I'm not sure about this one)

Our surname is two syllables beginning with T and ending in -son

Ta very much

Angus?
Patrick?

Of your names, I like Gregory and Fraser the best

Good Luck

Edgar. Fabulous name. King Lear reference. Great.

My unused boys name from this pregnancy that's a girl was Ernest. I love the name so much! I'll never have a little Ernest now as I'm done popping out babies!

We have a very close friend Angus, but I love Gus as a name. I'm afraid I can never not snigger at Ralph, thanks to Judy Blume. grin

Isn't Conrad just the best name Art?

I think Rufus, Bruno, Gregory and possibly Roderick/Roddy will make it the shortlist. I like Lawrence too, I caught that in the ONS list the other day.

sophronia I had to come back onto the thread as I thought you'd commented on my comment (pasted it in) and then saw that you just posted more or less the same as me smile

Bruno is the name of a dog, imo. Sorry. I really like Gregory and Edgar are awesome!
Maybe you'd also like Arthur, Ulric or Amos?

Cormac/Cormack

Conrad def suits our eldest, he's the only one we know also which is nice.

Actually another name we liked was Alaric

That's a nice interesting shortlist.

Rufus - fabulous name
Bruno - not keen
Rory - don't like
Gregory - quite like
Roderick (known as Roddy) - too similar to Conrad? Rod and Rad?
Fraser - don't like
Fergus - quite like
Edgar - too eggy, like Edwin though
Mortimer - reminds me of mortified, not keen
