Already have a River Have considered Forrest but think it sounds too much like we're trying too hard to match River, and plus I don't like it as much as River so it wouldn't be fair! I like Bay (but it sounds a bit feminine, does it not?) What does Rowan mean? Can't help but think of Mr Bean! Darwin =Charles. Xavier =I want to like, but there's something about it I don't unfortunately, and Jasper I really like but DH said no way!
Oh and the 6 letters thing... When I was little, my sister told me that our mum and dad loved us both equally because we had the same amount of letters in our combined first and middle names! I know it's nonsense, but it's kind of stuck! So if we had Isaac, we'd need a 6 letter name to equal DS1 Obviously it's not set in stone though. DH thinks I'm crazy!!! x
Hmm, there you are again with all your names Mel, you're like a book of naming knowledge! I love it! I've suggested Ash, but it's DH's friend's name so a no-go! What does Caspian mean, is it something to do with the sea? I think I like it! I have a good friend called Heather who I shorten to Heath (pronounced differently, but still looks the same!) I like Leif! But not sure DH will! Think he might actually like Reeve, I shall see! Maybe we need to stay away from nature names after all though, because they all feel as though we would just be having it because we have River.... Maybe we need a name that has a nature meaning but is not obvious... Am I asking too much?! I like Blake (which has 'lake' within it, what do you think..?)
I love Isaac Blake, it is my first choice, but it is all about convincing the DH and getting over the fact that he would have one less letter than DS1! Can't have 2 middles because DS1 doesn't, and that wouldn't be fair now would it?
Whoooah, I just realised, are you off to consult on a 3rd name for Oliver...? I was thinking you were wondering about a brother...?! Lol (I never use that, but I did actually lol!), no chance, the DH isn't merely as name obsessed as me, and that would be pushing it! :D x
