Ok, we're having our first dc and its a boy! I have quite an unusual name- never new another until I was an adult and I really enjoyed that, so want something a bit unusual, but also traditional. Nothing too modern. DH are in agreement on three, but I'm throwing a few others in the mix for fun. All to go with Thomas as a middle name, as we want to use the name of dh's late grandad.
Names we both like: Isaac Noah Seth
Names I like, which DH might come around too: Logan Sebastian (DH is very worried it would get nn basty)
Names I like that DH hates: Griffin (I'm just sticking this in for fun to see what you all think)
Any views these names? Or perhaps any other suggestions along similar lines?
Isaac - ok but prefer Zak (prefer Zachary really) Noah - no. Noah's ark. TOOOO biblical for me, plus, it's a feminine sound imo. Seth, ok but much, much prefer Saul Logan - no. What about Logie after logie baird? Sebastian - I really really dislike this name. Griffin - isn't it a half man half beast thing? or is that a griffith? oh either way, Griffin is a sur name.
I have an Isaac who has NEVER been referred to as Zac (actually not that I'd have minded, one of the things I love about the name is I liked all the shortened versions). He is usually Ike or Ikey or Ikey bogo - no doubt the last 2 will stop soon!
People keep telling me how it's getting very popular but I have no personal experience of that, and the name statistics suggest it has been around the 30-40 mark for some time now.
The other one of your names I like a lot is Seth, but DB called his son that so it would be out for us. Noah is lovely but getting quite trendy (am sure will be top ten within the next few years). That may not bother you one jot though!
