Looking for some inspiration really. If you could have any boys name without fear of rhyming, bullying or wtf faces when you announced the name what would it be?

Valentino (I got him, this is DS's name)
If DD2 had been a boy, she would have been Francisco Raphael

Digby. I vacillate daily between "I love it, it's amazing, and who cares about people who judge" and "people would judge, I can't use it"

Raymond. After my Grandfather. Won't use it for 2 reasons - firstly I think it's too old fashioned, and secondly we aren't having any more confused

(If DD2 had been a boy I was planning to hold out for its inclusion as a middle name)

Ooh, I have one of the previous suggestions smile.

Nice after my other DC's name appeared on a 'most chavvy' list the other day hmm. A statement which I think reflects more on the person who makes it than the child they're referring too, I think.

This is my gift to you, as I'm only having one and she was a DD. Our boy's name was Laurence Sebastian William.

Very happy with our decision to stick at one but still shed the odd tear that I didn't get to use this name!
