24 weeks pregnant with dc1. Before finding out the sex I had a huge list of girl names and no boy names at all. I just can't find any boy names that I like, never mind love hmmgirl names are so beautiful and easy to shortlist, why is finding a boy name so hard! sad

Some boy names that I think are OK
-Leo
-Toby
-Freddie
-Arthur
-Harrison

Still all seem so dull to me. Thinking of using a name that could be used for a boy or a girl. Suggestions on this could be helpful.

These were on my most current list, but we're having a girl (and I'm struggling for the perfect name!)

Thelonius
Benedict
Edison
Tiberius

Quite liking Edison!smile actually never heard of it before but it looks great written down and sounds nice too, thank yougrin

Oh no, I never knew how hard it could be! At least I'm not the only one struggling.

My girl shortlist was;
-Sophia
-Delilah
-Eliza
-Evelyn
-Maddison

Your girl names are longer than your boy list - almost all three syllables. Maybe think of some 3+ syllable boys names?

Sebastian
Dominic
Julian
Alistair
Lucian
Jeremy
Tobias
Alexander
Elliot

I felt exactly the same the dreamt I was chasing a little blonde boy on a beach. His name was Benjamin and that was that! He's Benji mostly and we chose Arlo as a middle name. I love his name xx

Yes I quite like Tobias, Nn Toby. I also like Elliott which funnily enough is DP surname, and will be his surname too, so I guess it's already part of his name grin

Benjamin is lovely! Was one of my favourite boy names, but me being me I suggested it to my step sister a few year ago and she used it for her DS. Didn't really picture myself having children at this time though!

I like two: Jasper and Greyson. And I'm not in love with those. Going to be very hard naming baby!

I find myself watching credits of films and programs to see if I like any names smile

I was the same when we had ds2.
We found some names that we agreed that we liked that were ok but nothing that we really wanted. We had a girls name pretty easily. In the end we found a name about 4 weeks before he was born by going through top 100 names in U.K , USA and Australia.
When we had ds1 and dd we found the names that we wanted straight away, so I was starting to panic a bit. Best of luck!!! Xxxx

Madison is a girls name and IMO it's a bit meh.

Harrison is awful.

Oh if you want unisex names what about Ellis? I know a girl and a boy called this.
