Surname-y boys names

(91 Posts)
JollyShortGiant Wed 10-Jul-13 21:09:22

DS is Harris. DH and I commit the Mumsnet sin of liking surname-y names. We are Scottish though where it is more acceptable. DC2 is due next month and we are trying to find a name we both like enough to use. We have a girl's name we like.

Some boy's names we like so far are:
Cooper
Campbell
Cameron
Fletcher
Ramsay
Leighton
Murray

But none of these seem quite right. Please give me some more suggestions!

Spencer
Ridley

I came on to suggest Harrison but obviously not! smile

Love surnames for first names! DH is Fraser, my DBro is Spencer, DS is Carter.

My top names of any subsequent DS's are Sullivan, Lachlan, Elliot.

DH is Scottish too, we have a very Scottish surname...

Wibblypiglikesbananas Thu 11-Jul-13 02:49:57

Machlin?

Parker - I love it and considered it for dd2 whether she was a boy or girl smile

8thplace Thu 11-Jul-13 06:30:36

Gordon ( I have an uncle)
Duncan ( I have a cousin)
Campbell ( I have another uncle)
Murray ( I have a BIL)
Martin is also a scottish family surname/ forename close to me
Cameron ( my personal favorite and my DM has this as middle name)

I am scottish too BTW

JollyShortGiant Thu 11-Jul-13 06:45:35

Two Scots of my acquaintance:

My father was Campbell, his brother was Ross, but to me that's not quite the same vibe.

I love Forbes and Innes but DH isn't keen. DH loves Leighton but I'm not convinced. We are getting there with finding a middle ground though smile this thread has been really helpful.

Really not keen on Leighton!

I knew a very handsome and cool Ramsay once, I've always loved the name but my DH not so keen. I knew a Hammond too, not so cool! Campbell is gorgeous and Cameron is good too.

I love Cameron and also Fraser, Murray, Murphy and Spencer.

MacCrackles Sun 14-Jul-13 22:04:30

Ooh, almost forgot as hadn't thought of it in surname terms but Cole was a favourite if DC had been a DS!

Thought of Massie today.

There's a few I like but can't have for various reasons (close friends or family members, people I don't like with the same name).

We are liking Flynn and Ridley. Haven't raised Colby with DH yet but I like it too.

JollyHolidayGiant Sun 21-Jul-13 15:13:52

Today's favourite is Ross. I think we're just going to have to pull a name out of a hat. Or hope for a girl! We have 1 month before baby is here.

Arf at Olivia lurking. grin You can't do it Olivia, you'll never live it down. The shame!!! You need to have an MN approved name only. shock

I love surname first names for boys - especially ones with a Scots or irish bent - they are so strong and manly and rugged and dashing.

And I don't care. grin

One of my sons has one of the names mentioned on here, and it is very, very unusual - have yet to meet another one. I suspect there many be a baby or three lurking in the UK with the name now but he is nearly 14. And no, I'm not telling. It's his name, and I'm preserving it for posterity and exclusivity.

TheRealFellatio

Arf at Olivia lurking. grin You can't do it Olivia, you'll never live it down. The shame!!! You need to have an MN approved name only. shock

The MN approved names I am currently getting include ice and aslice (!)
I have used up lots of boys names and am v open to suggestions

TheRealFellatio Wed 31-Jul-13 22:07:14

Ooh I missed that it was twins! Congratulations! Although I'd be offended by all those gin references for names if I were you. What do they take you for? Some kind of out of control lush? shock

well if you weren't before you certainly soon will be

My vote goes to Chaz and Dave. It has a very classy ring to it.

TheRealFellatio Wed 31-Jul-13 22:08:58

My sister had twins as DCs 3 & 4. She had four under five at one point. She eventually resurfaced after around 9 years of never leaving the house. grin

LemonBreeland Wed 31-Jul-13 22:12:51

I have a Cooper and I absolutely love the name. Ir is very well received in Scotland. My English family were somewhat different, clearly they have no taste.

Other names I like

Campbell
Murray
Austin

Oh god. That is going to be me. DS1 will be 5y9m

TheRealFellatio Wed 31-Jul-13 22:14:05

Oops. Sorry. grin

Here, have some gin. No, go on, have it. Put it under the sink for later. wine

squoosh Wed 31-Jul-13 22:19:03

Flynn or Quinn?

MothershipG Wed 31-Jul-13 22:21:18

McGregor, Mac for short.

Both my DC have this as their middle name (outs self and waves to anyone who knows me. smile)

Or Griffin?

JollyHappyGiant Sun 18-Aug-13 13:59:05

Oh no, we're having a wobble. DC2 is coming by ELCS on Thursday and we've just changed our minds on the girls name and now are undecided in the boy name. Argh!
