Afraid I've been here before, but am 31 weeks pg with DS 3 and am stuck for a name. Trouble is I knew what I would call my older two boys almost from the moment of conception (they are William and Edward) and I feel unsettled by not being able to think of anything I like as much for this one. I love traditional English names, but don't want anything too stuffy. James, Joseph, Alexander, Thomas and Peter are out for family reasons. Middle name of this baby is to be George (again, family reasons).
I love Hugh but it really doesn't go with our surname or with the middle name imo. Hugo goes and I like it but DH seriously not keen. Others on our shortlist:
Robert (nn Robbie) Henry Nathaniel Samuel (obviously nn Sam). Love this but too widely used?
Honest opinions and other suggestions please! And is Hugo just too rah/public schoolboy as DH suggests or is it quite cool?
Thanks for your suggestions. DH vetoed Charles and Arthur, which is a shame as I love the latter. I know without consultation that he would veto Rupert. It goes well with William and Edward though. Frederick is a no-go as the 3 Freddies I have known have all been little monsters! Think Samuel is still my favourite and Nathaniel is DH's. Just seems important that baby gets a good name and not leftovers!
