Need a name for baby boy

(18 Posts)

I need a name for a baby boy but I dont want one that is in the top 100 and dont want it beginning with A as DS1 name begins with A.

I am struggling so much, I dont like names such as Alfie as it is a nick name for Alfred.
I quite like Theo but dont like Theodore.

I want a slightly unusual name without being too off the wall.

I prefer the classic names, I really dont like modern ones such as Mackenzie or Tyler. (Apologies to anyone who loves these names but hey we cant all be the same)

Please help

I'm not sure where these are on the Top 100, but how about:

Rupert, Benedict, Dominic, Lysander, Christian, Ferdinand, Inigo, Marcus?

As already suggested like under used classics like Dominic, Christian, Gregory, Marcus.

In that style, what about Peter, Nicholas, Richard, Julian, Saul, Guy

Slightlier quirkier but still 'normal' I like Howard, Donald, Victor

I like Nathaniel, like Xavier but DP wont allow it! Also like Christian.

I am still looking for that name that jumps out at me though...

grin at Instant. Can't get more classical and unique than Zebedee surely?

lol, I like it, not too sure DP will approve but hey made me smile smile

Sorry to be a spoil sport but I met a Zebedee on our last holiday (in UK). But perhaps I am just jealous because all my DC have boring top 10 common names.

I think you'll find Nathaniel is quite popular.

First DS is Alexander and I would think John is popular. Maybe I am being too picky. I know a Laurie,not short for anything thats quite nice.

So far
Theo
Christian
Nathaniel
James popular but good
