so i was reading some other names here and really like some here are 2 i have picked, but i was also thinking perhaps somthing with more black cultur in because he dad is black and so is my stepdad, like winston or Monique?

I like the name Bethany. Wilde is a bit "out there" for me. Personally I'd choose a name you and the child's father both like and not worry too much about "culture".

I like Bethany and I like Winston but I would fear that Wilde would become a self-fulfilling prophecy!

I would not worry about culture, and go with names you like.

Love Bethany, not sure at all about Wilde.

Meant to add, Winston is not bad but Monique is imo dreadful. (am Dutch, Monique was a popular name there whilst I was growing up and it was a bit of a mouthful and had 'wannabe posh' connotations...)

Like others, Bethany is lovely Wilde I am not so keen on.

Wilde is my surname so would definitely not think of it as a first name!

Wilde is utterly dreadful.

What Soupdragon said.

Bethany is nice though.

Bethany is very nice.

Not keen on Wilde. How about William?

Glad to read this. I have a Bethany and it has been much mocked on here before. Not keen on Wilde, sorry. Will is nice though.
