hmmmm..... none would be on my list i'm afraid...

PaperBank Mon 11-Jul-11 22:23:18

I like Edward and Miles best from your list smile

How about Felix, William, Alexander, Frederick, Leonard, Charles, Sidney, Liam, Nathaniel, Max, Walter, Sebastian, Lawrence?

threecurrantbuns Mon 11-Jul-11 22:28:51

Well also thought of Walter and rupert? I'm drawn to Felix but makes me think cat, would need to go with my ds's name which is Hugo

threecurrantbuns Mon 11-Jul-11 22:32:17

Lloyd or Floyd?

PaperBank Mon 11-Jul-11 22:33:18

Lloyd is quite nice. Floyd might well get Pink Floyd jokes.

I really like Monty from your list.

Austin and Edward are nice names. I don't like the others.

Hedwig3 Tue 12-Jul-11 09:29:01

I like Austin and Miles.

How about:

I know exactly what you mean. My DH and I are really struggling to find a boy’s name, there are a few we like but nothing feels like ‘the one’ or at least nothing we can agree on. If it helps here is our list:

I like Austin and Montgomery (Monty).

Miles is the plural of Mile, like calling your child Kilometres (unless you're not in the UK where Miles are still used).

How about Quentin (Quinn) or Thaddeus?

evamummy Tue 12-Jul-11 10:49:42

I know brothers Hugo, Quentin & Thomas.

Also like Austin and Monty from your list.

Monty I think and sounds best with Hugo.

IxnayOnTheIbblerQuay Tue 12-Jul-11 12:18:00

I think Hugo and Austin sound good together.

Thanks all, ive decided Ralph is a no go being as one of the children as dds school calls our Hugo, Hugo Boss! so could end up at school as Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren lol not somethin i thought of with Hugo although i adore his name so dont think it would have put me off!

Think the ones i like best atm are Monty, Austin and Edward. I like classic names but feel like Edward isnt different enough also like Harry but very popular and not sure about Hugo and Harry?? Same with Humphrey, i love it but not sure if its too way out and would they get callet humph!?

Like Rupert but will it just get associated with the bear!? Or get called Roo!?

I dont know its so difficult.

New list would be

Austin (not sure if this sounds slightly female)

I also have Grace, Daisy...not sure if that makes a diff, so if we have a boy would be, Grace, Daisy, Hugo and ?

minipie Tue 12-Jul-11 12:57:37

Austin and Edward would be my favourites. Rupert not bad (quite posh but then so is Hugo). Harry is ok but not ideal with Hugo.

(There's also Edwin, Edmund or Edgar if you want something a bit different).

Monty and Humphrey are fat middle aged uncle names IMO.

Grace, Daisy, Hugo and Austin
Grace, Daisy, Hugo and Edward
Grace, Daisy, Hugo and Rupert

all good

I love your names. I'M a bit biased but I love Hugo and Edward as I have those myself.
Our bulldog was called Monty, but it's still a great name. We have a Miles too.
What about Felix, heard a little boy being called that this week, very cute.
Your names are great though!

threecurrantbuns Tue 12-Jul-11 13:24:47

Yes def liking Ausitn, Rupert and Edward think Edward has less teasing options? Dh just said he likes Austin but makes him think of Ausitn Powers.

Would love to find something from my list or simialr that will still be acceptable to them once teenagers. I love Hugo now and think its also quite a good teen name.

threecurrantbuns Tue 12-Jul-11 13:25:16

Ps happywheezer you have a household of fab names smile

Hedwig3 Tue 12-Jul-11 13:57:38

Monty goes really well. Also like Rupert and Humphrey is great smile

Edward - bleargh!

hulabula Tue 12-Jul-11 14:37:15

Hugo and Austin or Rupert go very well. Also like Austin and Quentin.

Edward is dull imo.

threecurrantbuns Tue 12-Jul-11 15:52:54

Feel like I'm starting to like Rupert quite alot now. Bit different from the rest I like James to but that is my Hugo's middle name.
