Really stuck on names for our 3rd ds was wondering about famous cricketers. Quite like Freddie. Any one can they remember any others as it is dh who is the cricket boffin.

Other than that Quite like Elliot. Our surname is an S so would need to go with it.

Geoffrey isn't common but I don't think it's a bad one.

Freddie is a great name but I'm not sure Freddie Flintoff is that great a role model! Plus his name is Andrew!

I don't know the first thing about cricket but a quick search reveals...

Ian (Botham)
Darren (Gough)
Shane (Warne)
Brian (Lara)
Gary (Sobers)
Keith (Miller)
Dean (Jones)
Graeme (Craig Smith)
Terry (Alderman)
Rod (Marsh)
Dennis (Lillee)
Kevin (Pieterson)
Shaun (Pollock)
Don (Bradman)

Lots of names which are not particularly fashionable now, but who knows, maybe they're set for a comeback later!

<searches again to find some I prefer>

Andrew (Flintoff)
Richard (Hadlee)
Jack (Hobbs)

Or how about this list of Test Cricketers here Must be some nice ones in there?
