Hi ladies,

We are quite set on Zachary (nn Zach) for our son due in September.

We have thought of Dylan for a middle name. Elliott is another contender.

What are peoples thoughts on this name/s?

Zachary is on my list grin so am biased in saying yes!
Zachary Elliot & Zachary Dylan both sound great...can't choose between the two!

I really don't like the nicknames for Zachary - Zac/Zak/Zach as they sound so harsh and incomplete. The name has also become very popular recently and I think it will date.

I do like Dylan and Elliot - much more elegant imo.

Zachary Dylan is very nice smile

Elliott, Zachary, Dylan in that order.

I get the feeling Zach is not much liked on Mumsnet, but I think it is a fine name.

I still associate Dylan with being a bit feckless and a tiny bit stupid (due to Magic Roundabout, I'm afraid).

Thanks. I was a little worried about dylan and the magic roundabout/ feckless link to be honest!

I like it. I hardly know any.

I don't like Zach/Zak/Zac, it sounds incomplete. I do like Zachary or Zacharias.

And I like Elliot.

my DS was going to be Zachary Frederick, known as Zach, but when he was born he just didn't look like a Zachary, so now he's Frederick Benjamin smile

I really like Zachary Dylan! Elliot is a lovely name too, though.
