Ds is Finlay and if we hv another boy we're stuck.....

Either DH or I like these, sort of but can't really agree on one, either one of hates it and one loves it.....
Finlay got called Finlay cos its the only boys name we could agree on....

Kind of want sort of 'different' without being weird and both not too keen on james, daniel, thomas, william, micheal etc.......

Wilfred
Rory
Barnaby
Fred
George
Toby
Stanley / Stan ???
Henry

Any other ideas MNers?

Not in love with any of them tho and hoping for a girl because of it!!

Dexter?

Stanley/Stan is great, as is Barnaby. I also like Dexter or how about Quentin, Felix or Fabian?

I am a firm believer in that people sharing names have similar personalities generally. Both Finlays that I am aware of are very gentle giants. The most contented easy to get along with people.
But not too common a name that there are only 2 that I know
Good luck with the new arrival I am sure when the little person arrives the name will fit easily

Henry

bbbum Sat 08-Dec-12 00:32:36

Sam, Toby, Leo, Harry, Henry, Sebastian - all quite 'normal'
Fred, Ralph, Wilbur, Ivor, Bert, Bruce, Arthur, Rupert - a tad more 'daring'

Edwin, Oswin, Oliver

We struggled hugely with boys names, too. Our short list included Nathaniel (Nat), Jonah, Milo, Arlo, Sonny. A really popular boys name around here is Osian (pronounced Osh-ann). I quite like that, too.

Dylan and Ethan popped into my head.
Lots of good suggestions.

Fabian is nice, Finlay and Fabian seem to work together. For a middle name, you can never go wrong with Michael.

Ohhh what about Cyrus?

Empross76 Sat 08-Dec-12 09:19:38

Another one I like - a friend of mine has a Macsen. Could be Max or Mac for short.

PlateSpinningAtAllTimes Sat 08-Dec-12 09:23:00

I like Sebastian (Seb) and Louis...

Back2Two Sat 08-Dec-12 09:25:30

I always pop up with "Vincent" cos I love it!
Fin and Vin? It could work...

gallivantsaregood Sat 08-Dec-12 09:28:55

Luuk..... Pronounced as Luke

1978andallthat Sat 08-Dec-12 10:09:57

The Finlay I know has a brother Oliver (Olly)

Empross76 Sat 08-Dec-12 14:46:14

Ooh, I'm on a roll now... Luka. In fact, I think I need to have another baby boy so I can use some of these!

Barnaby!!! FAB smile

I also prefere Willoughby to Wilfred.
