I'm 23weeks pregnant & I'm struggling to find an unusual boys name that would go well with my 3yr old daughters name Willow! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated........so far we have Rafferty but i'm not 100% keen as the husband is!

Yep, I second Rowan, or going on the tree theme how about Oakley (!)
Or..
Hunter
Chester
River
Is it nature themes you're after?

Willowsmumma Sun 13-Jan-13 17:06:51

Ahh Oakley!! I'm loving that, Thankyou......my Husband has Hunter on his list but I'm not sure, think it's a bit hard for a baby! smile

Arthur......

I was going to say Hunter and Rowan too.

Forrester, Arthur, Dexter, Finn, Asher, Dara, Jude, Cooper, Fielder?

Not sure if you're going for nature or not! Hth

Xander. What else?

Willowsmumma Sun 13-Jan-13 17:29:22

I do like the whole nature/magical type theme with names! Thanks so much for these idea, it really helps smile

MumOfMissy Sun 13-Jan-13 17:30:29

Must admit Hunter does remind me of the gladiator that sh***d Ulrika Johnson (allegedly)!

Willowsmumma Sun 13-Jan-13 17:34:09

Haha that's exactly what my Sister said!! I'm not keen but it's becoming quite popular around our area lately, there's one at Willow's playgroup.

another tree name?
oak, ash

Bodhi (pronounced bowdee), a mystical tree name?

Avery.
Harley

I thought Rafferty as soon as I saw the title of your thread!

Taliesin, Jasper, Tristan, Raven, Phoenix, Conall, Gawain, Lochlan, Avalon (unisex I think), Rohan, Silvan?

Gabriel.

Willowsmumma Sun 13-Jan-13 20:20:13

Thanks peeps! Some good ideas coming in grin

StellaNova Sun 13-Jan-13 20:25:55

Raphael as alternative to Rafferty? Can be shortened to Rafe or Raffy.

Arargon

Or if not that brave Ash or Toby

choccyp1g Sun 13-Jan-13 20:33:56

Ashley or Ashleigh to follow the tree theme?

Have we had Beck? I love it.

I second River. That's my boy name if we have one!

zingally Mon 14-Jan-13 14:41:43

For some reason, Harley popped into my head first... not sure why, because it's not a name I much care for!

James
Benjamin
Franklin
Anthony

Mollydoggerson Mon 14-Jan-13 17:40:24

Eben was my first thought. Then maybe Eden. How about Dara?

I have a Rowan and I get lots of compliments on the name.

LittleDonkin Mon 14-Jan-13 18:04:15

My first thoughts were Elliott or Elijah

Mollydoggerson Mon 14-Jan-13 19:38:43

Emmet is also nice.

badtemperedaldbitch Thu 17-Jan-13 18:42:18

Thank you for this thread. I was inhospitable having a small operation and to keep my mind off that I was thinking about this !

Anyway I came up with Walter.

But after reading these lovely names there are much better suggestions

MeanMrsMustard Fri 18-Jan-13 18:28:06

Serin - I know siblings called Willow and Merlin!

GoodnessMeNoGinInTheHouse Fri 18-Jan-13 20:26:12

Jasper, Toby, Elijah, Nathaniel, Harrison...

My first thought was Seth but as you also seem to like.more 'out there' names, Ill suggest....

Griffin
Rowan
Merlin
