We already have a DS beginning with an A and thinking names for DC2 but boys names are proving rather difficult.

We like quite 'different' names ideally something that can't be shortened! TIA

Thank you grin doesn't have to be an A per se but think it would go nicely with currently name. Entirely open to anything as long as it's "different".

Armand is lovely.

MrsJK Fri 11-Oct-13 21:53:38

We already have one of those FRIGG smile hence why its so tough with number 2. That was a perfect name from the start with us!

Grumblelion Fri 11-Oct-13 23:36:56

I know 2 brothers, Arran & Aiden

Yes,this may also be why I'm struggling for a boys name with DC3, we loved Arlo from the very beginning.

I dont know if this helps,but this is my current short list:

Rufus
Caspar
Asa

Thanks ladies - lots of food for
Thought! This naming malarkey certainly isn't easy grin

Amazing what some people have suggested for names that can't be shortened! Almost everything can and will be shortened - or when he gets older it will probably get lengthened!
