I hate most boys names as most of the ones I hear are so over used.

I like the name Nathan, but any other suggestions would be helpful.

Just to help, I like more American used names like, Zachary, Ethan, Tyler, Caleb, Brett etc.

Also, it has to go with a 4 letter last name. grin

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I've just found out I'm having a boy and we're calling him Seth! BTW, ours also has to go with a 4letter last name.

Duncan, Gavin or Adrian. You know you want to grin
FWIW and it really isn't any of my business, why would you want an American name when there are so many great Brit ones (I've given three) to choose from?

StrawberryMewMew Tue 31-May-11 12:57:22

Oh Sillyness I love that name, I have brought it up to DP a fair few times but he's not sure on it.

Kreecher I'm not sure, I just don't like the sound of most British names, however I did like your suggestion of Adrian. grin

Sillyness Tue 31-May-11 13:01:16

thanks! grin

My DS has a friend called Harrison with a single syllable surname. I think it's a good choice if you want something a bit different but not mad.

StrawberryMewMew Tue 31-May-11 13:35:27

Just suggested Harrison to my DP, he says it's too Star Wars.... confused

BlueChampagne Tue 31-May-11 15:46:09

Methinks he's showing his age? It's not as if you suggested Han - unless your 4 letter surname is Solo!

How about:

BlueChampagne Is that not the guy that apparently killed John F Kennedy?

I love the names Cassius and Dominic!

BlueChampagne Wed 01-Jun-11 12:38:59

Yeah - you're on the ball! But one of them would be OK.

StrawberryMewMew Wed 01-Jun-11 14:35:06

I think my DP wants to stick with Nathan, what does everyone here thing of that name? Ok?

Thanks again everyone!

JamieAgain Wed 01-Jun-11 14:58:28
