DH and I have picked Honor if baby is a girl. However stuck on boys names. If we ever have a girl she will be called Honor so the name needs to 'work' with Honor.

DH wants the name to grab him, however that doesn't mean 'flowery or over the top'.

The only name we both 'like' is Jamie but whist it's a good / nice name it's just a bit well blaaaaa.

I don't wait anything currently in the Top 10..?

I've suggested Kit (brave) Hamish and Hugh.

What do you lot think could work...???

I know 2 honors. One with borther Arthur (Artie) and one with brother Rafe (or might be Ralph pronounced the Rafe way).

I'd probably choose a different initial for dd and ds.

James is indeed a little bland/dull imo but tastes are different, aren't they. I like Christopher (Kit).

Timetomove...I like both but don't think DH will go for Rafe (I've already suggested it twice)

I like Arthur but can you really look at a baby and call him Arthur...!?!?! Mind you all the Arthur's i've meet have been cool.

Hahaha are so funny! Jokes aren't needed, thank you very

Highlandgirl Wed 03-Nov-10 17:04:53

HelloKitty don't like Christopher, so it will just be 'Kit'

I like Archer, nn Archie. Close to Arthur/Artie but a bit different. Love Honor btw.

Highlandgirl Wed 03-Nov-10 19:49:11

Do like Archie but DH doesn't...! Also I used to have a ex BF who's last name was Archibald so that's out..!

What about Oscar..? Maybe a bit done now?!?!

The initial's point is worth remembering, however we could save on school name tages..grin

I am watching with interest my DD is Honor and I am stuck for a name for DC4. I will be stealing shamelessly from your suggestions. grin

I wanted Kit too, but DP utterly barred it. I think it's lovely, and I agree that it'd be nice for DCs to have different initials.

Goingdownhill what are you other DC called......?? Shamelessly nick from you too grin I'm stuck with 1 name, finding 4...gosh not easy x

Tolalola I'm working on it...!

Why are all the Faith/Hope/Charity etc names for girls? The closest I can think of for a boy is Justin.

I think Kit is the best name ever, on it's own, no Christopher needed (biased grin)

Highlandgirl Sun 07-Nov-10 21:17:56

I don't want a Faith/Hope etc etc style name for a boy. Just a name which goes with Honor.

Kitsmummy Good to know thanks xxx

Sorry for the delay. I have DS1 who is William and DS2 Lucas. I love Lucas but due to the huge leap in popularity I would not choose it again. I heavily suspect DC4 to be another boy. I desperately want to name him Xavier or Gabriel both have been firmly vetoed by DH. If I am wrong and it is a girl she would be Tessa or Alexandra. Girls names are so much easier !

My Honor has a brother John. The other Honor I know with a brother has a Theo.

Toby/ Tobias

And David

Kester is an old form of Christopher and shortens nicely to Kit.

William (though perhaps a bit mundane I think it goes well with Honor)
Frank (Francis)

mathanxiety thanks for your suggestions...!
Toby I love..! DH has used the veto card for Gabriel!

William doesn't work with our surname.

goingdownhill I love Alexandra..goes really well the Honor, William and Lucas...! DH vetod Xavier, DH is

Sorry pranma but I don't like Kester..! Any another suggestions...??

spler my father is John but DH doens't like Theo as he thinks it's too 'common' ie over used...!
