Hello, I'm new to posting here so I'll keep it brief. Having already had three boys (Dexter nn Dex, Nicolas nn Nico and Fergus nn Gus) my DH and I have completely run out of names for the fourth! We are thinking of maybe using Alistair (with the nn Alo), Chester (with the nn Chess) or Alexander (with the nn Sandy). However we don't love any of those so would love some suggestions of names that are similar/would go with our other sons names. I'm hoping that by hearing lots of suggestions through a forum that the right name will just leap out!

I like Sandy a lot.

Sorry I meant Alistair with the nn Ali

Ignatius nn Iggy
Benedict nn Bendy
I like Laurence too.

I love Benedict, Gideon and Gregory.

Jerome or Jeremiah, nn Jem

WHY did I write Maximus? I meant Maximilian. I Am A Fool.

You cannot call a Benedict Bendy - that will inevitably lead to Bendy Dick, sorry grin.

I love Alistair (Ali), Gregory (Greg) and how about Quentin (Quinn) or Leonard (Leo)?

We have a Maximilian who is a Max - everyone thinks is very very cool.

How about Otto - is my all time fave name.

Oh i feel for you, I'm struggling with just 2!

DS1 is Nico so I think we may be in the same page... Currently considering the following for DS2: Linus, Gabe, Elias, Arlo, and Lorien.

Oooh I love Arlo, don't think I would be brave enough to use it though!

All of your DSs have great names! Going with your other suggestions, how about -

Lawrence (Laurie) as suggested
Theodore (Ted)
Arthur (Arty)

Kester (Kes/Kez)
Fletcher (Fletch)
Patrick (Paddy)
Arthur (and get to call him Arlo why not)
Lachlan (Lachie)
Hudson (Hud)

ROFL @ Bendy, sorry!

Love all your DS's names, and others have given you lots of great suggestions. Think Ted, Tad, Lawrie or Kes would go really well with the others. Or Alex?

I love the suggestions of Ted, Patrick (Patch) and Tris and think they go beautifully with your other DS's fabulous names! Good luck with the new arrival smile

I have a Dexter-great choice! Miles is his middle name,maybe give that a go?

curlwur200 Tue 30-Aug-11 18:04:31

I agree that Miles or Cassius would go very well with your other sons' names

LaTristesse Tue 30-Aug-11 20:36:05

I heard Cassian the other day which I love, and could be nn Cass too...

Sandy is a great name from your own list, how about Cass and Mac (as already suggested) or Kit, Ned or Ash?

Dex, Nico, Gus and Sandy does have a pretty good ring to it!
