Nothing too commonly used, nothing super weird. Unusual is fine. Nature-themed would be amazing. DS1 is Rowan.

Go!

Ted. I really wanted ted for my ds2 and I wasn't allowed.....

OutsiderInTheGarden Wed 22-Jun-16 14:17:07

Oooh I like Ted! Would you go with just Ted, or Edward/Theodore?

1horatio Wed 22-Jun-16 14:22:45

Basil, Robin, Sylvan, Flint, Ash, Briar, Wolf, Ulric (wolf-ish), Peregrine (because of the falcon).

Can't think of other nature names for boys.

OutsiderInTheGarden Wed 22-Jun-16 14:24:14

Love Peregrine and Wolf smile Know my OH would never go for them though.

Rowan and Robin/Robbie is nice

1horatio Wed 22-Jun-16 16:13:15

Well, I like Robin. Although the double R... So I'd probably go for Orion or Flint. But that's just my personal taste smile

I really like Rowan as a boy name (though I dislike it for a girl, for some reason).

Thanks for the suggestions. I've put Kit, Sonny, Ted, Sterling (or is it Stirling?) Magnus, Lawrence (Laurie), Florian and Peregrine onto the long list so far.

OH has added Angus, Victor, Nial and Morgan. I only like Victor. confused

Possible middle names so far: Rocco, Wilde/Wilder, Henry, Benjamin.

Thewolfsjustapuppy Thu 23-Jun-16 10:27:09

Oh I like Florian where did that come from?
If you like Victor what about Hector?

OutsiderInTheGarden Thu 23-Jun-16 10:38:53

I love Hector! I would use it but a close friend has a Hector already. Florian, I'm not sure where I heard it? Maybe OH once had an acquantaince through work? Nobody close to us though. And I think Florrie is a lovely nn, but trying to decide if it's too difficult a name to live with? hmm

1horatio Thu 23-Jun-16 10:45:20

Florian is brilliantsmileI know a Florian. He doesn't seem to mind the name.
Plus, aren'oot kids nowadays used to slightly unusual names?

FinallyMadeIt Thu 23-Jun-16 10:46:45

Husani, it means handsome.

CeeCee00 Thu 23-Jun-16 10:50:05

Asa... Pronounced Ace-er (like the tree which is one of my favourite) It's a Hebrew name meaning 'Healer' which I thought was a nice thing. It was top of my list whilst I was pregnant but we had a girl who we called Astrid.

OutsiderInTheGarden Thu 23-Jun-16 10:54:27

CeeCee Astrid was in my top 2 if DC2 was a girl! It's so beautiful and (in my mind at least) strong sounding. I liked Axel in the same vein for a boy, but OH has absolutely vetoed it.

CeeCee00 Thu 23-Jun-16 11:11:55

Outsider Great minds! A strong sounding name for a girl was one of the reasons we chose it. Plus I'm a sucker for a Scandinavian name.

I think Florian is also great as is it was one of the guys from Kraftwerk, which is a pretty great namesake.

OutsiderInTheGarden Thu 23-Jun-16 11:21:56

Oooh I didn't know that CeeCee! Might help me sell it to my OH.
