MN is after FIL (who is lovely, but whose name isn't, & who has no middle name!!).

First name needs to be Scottish as a family tradition. So I need the best, coolest, loveliest Scottish boy's name ever to distract from the awful MN!!

Thank you kindly. Really good ones please!!

I love caleb and I'm pretty certain that's Scottish smile

birdofthenorth Wed 29-Jun-11 20:21:08

Ha! I do like Scott.

Scott Keith dreadful though.

Top marks for Scottishness though grin

Also, angus, logan, ross and douglas

Angus after Angus Young.

birdofthenorth Wed 29-Jun-11 20:23:48

Caleb is brilliant! I thought it was Hebrew though!

Angus is DH's favourite. Think it sounds silly with DD's name though.

Love Logan. Ross is good too but again sounds less good with DD's name.

birdofthenorth Wed 29-Jun-11 20:26:42

This is great. Keep them coming please!

Remember, this must be The Best Scottish Name, Ever grin

I like Gregor,Cameron and my friend has a Greig This last may not be Scottish I`d thought it was though.

GwendolineMaryLacey Wed 29-Jun-11 20:29:57

Douglas. No contest. Or Ruaridh...

Yama Wed 29-Jun-11 20:30:44

Alexander is Scottish (as well as from a few other countries).

Fergus. Its my ds's name so it must be the best. Fact. We missed a trick with Keith though wink

I'll second Alexander, although I think it's technically more Greek, but I have an Alexander, and we're Scottish.

Kittyroo Wed 29-Jun-11 20:32:19

Euan is best (not biased at all!) I like Hamish, Dougal, Murdo and Angus. Would have gone for Hamish myself but OH wouldn't let me.

birdofthenorth Wed 29-Jun-11 20:32:30

Donald is brother & late Grandpa's name. I would love to use it again but DH distinctly unkeen.

Love Gregor but is close friend's fiancé which might seem a bit strange. It's on the list though!

Grieg sounds Scandinavian to me?

Camerondiazepam Wed 29-Jun-11 20:32:47

Is your DD called Agnes? Cos that would sound a bit crap with Angus. Otherwise, no problem shurely!

homeagainhomeagain Wed 29-Jun-11 20:32:48


There are many lovely Scottish names

pissedrightoff Wed 29-Jun-11 20:33:56

Ruairidh is a fantastic name, It would have been DS's name but DH was worried about no-one spelling it correctly.

Cameron is a good one.

I was going to say Lachlan but apparently that is of Irish origin.(sounds Scottish though)

lostinindia Wed 29-Jun-11 20:34:02


birdofthenorth Wed 29-Jun-11 20:36:44

Yes I bet your Fergus would have loved to have been Fergus Keith wink

Love Euan but is good friend's recent& acrimonious ex!!

Cameron was always my imaginary DS... Until David Cameron came along sad
