Started a thread in 2008 before ds2 was born and got lots of helpful advice (which incidentally we didnt fully end up taking, but it was very useful to help make up our minds), so am hoping some of you can help with dc3's name.

Ds1 is called Struan and ds2 is Angus.

Dont know if dc3 is a boy or girl, but if its a boy, we are running out of scottish names that we like, so any suggestions would be very welcome, as would girls names.

To give a bit more information, we prefer names that are not the most obvious, but at the same time not too far out of the ordinary.

Thanks.

Is Ramsay Scottish? Apologies if not.

I like Morven/Morvern for a girl.

Love your first two names, Struan in particular is one of my faves.

I would suggest Donald, Hamish or Hector.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far.

Can't decide if I like Hamish or not - i think it might be overkill together with the other two names, but not sure. Dont want to be too cliched scottish (especially since I am a kilt maker) but do like it in a friend of mine's boy.

Like Lachlan too, but not sure if it's too unusual? Like Ewan but might be too similar to Struan.

Few others I like but are in the family already so would probably avoid, but a couple of ones to add to the list there.

Lots of nice girl's names too. Might be easier to decide if its a girl.
