hi, i'm 34 weeks pregnant with a lil boy and me and my partner decided for a boy we would call him brandon, long before i even got pregnant! my partner still loves it but i'm wavering. i still really like it but unsure if it's "the one". the kind of names we like are not old fasioned but not wierd. the kind of name thats just regular but not really common "like brandon", can any one suggest anything? also second name is liu (pronounced loo) so needs to go with that. thanks 4 the help! smile

I like Brandon.
It was on the shortlist for when we had ds1.
It's nice.

hmm, all the names suggested are a tad common IMHO (with the exception of Brian). How about Fabian or Rafe? They are far classier.

Or if you must go for a 'B' Benedict or Benjamin?

Some quite modern sounding names....

Zak (Zachary)

Reuben or Harrison

FunnysInTheGarden Tue 24-May-11 22:32:39

Please don't spell it with a K. And why would you BTW? Caleb is spelt with a C

See I like unusual names...but the OP wanted just regular.

RickGhastley Tue 24-May-11 22:35:04

Why would you spell your child's name wrong on purpose?

People will not think it's cool and different, they will think it is silly.

wud av changed it cus i'm a c an daughter is a k so wud rather they ad same initial, asked oh an he hates it sad((((

Really sorry but if the CV of a man called Brandon turned up on my desk, I would put it on the bottom of the pile. Sounds ghastly to my ear and automatically triggers negative, unclassy association. You could put some fab names with a single syllable surname - Sebastian Liu (Seb), Alexander Liu (Xander), Atticus Liu etc etc

carlyx Tue 24-May-11 22:40:34

am sure i've seen it spelt that way b4???????

carlyx Tue 24-May-11 22:51:57

Surnames can sometimes make good first names - unusual but not outlandish IYSWIM. Are there any surnames in either of your families that would suit?

How about Brayden, Jayden, Kayden, or Hayden? grin

On a more serious note, I love the name Bruno
