I'm now 6 weeks away from my edd and we STILL can't settle on a boy's name, so would appreciate some outside opinions!

In no particular order, our current shortlist is;

Cameron (I am being put off by the flippin Prime Minister though!)
Declan
Cormac
Spencer (this is DP's current fave, but I'm not so keen)

Any thoughts?

I like Declan best of those.

Cormac is a brand of Tarmac where we live. Out of them all I prefer Declan but not that keen on any, sorry.

Cormac is my favourite by a long way, followed by Spencer and Declan.
Really hate the name Cameron.

Declan is the one I prefer. Although none of them are to my taste.

Like Cameron but the meaning 'crooked nose' put me off ...rather apt for Mr C I think!

Like Spencer, but reminds me of M&S

Not a fan of Declan - that Donnelly chap, don't like Cormac either ...reminds me of Tarmac!

Are you looking for a 'surnamey' type name?

Oh dear...not looking too popular on here then!

MelinaM..not purposely looking for a surnamey type name but agree that they do sound a bit like that.
I'm quite keen on a celtic sounding name.

May not be to your taste, but off the top of my head:

Aidan
Alastair /Alasdair
Broderick
Callum
Camden
Cassian
Corrin
Finlay
Flynn
Lachlan
Lennan
Rorey /Rory
Ross

Thanks Melinam, some great ideas there.
I love Aidan but it's been vetoed by DP sad
Callum also a goody! x

Spencer but not keen on any of them to be truthful.

What about Corben?

Francis, Patrick, Seamus.

cormac, cameran, declan - in that order - dont like spencer, reminds me of some twunt off big brother years ago

Caleb?

Or - if you like C names and want a Celtic name, how about Welsh?

-Cadan
-Carwyn
-Ceri
-Caio (Kai-yo)
-Cian (also Irish I think) - (Kee-ann)

Aidan is lovely... Spencer is just not nice at all, sorry! How about Struan instead?

I quite like Cameron but I think it is unuseable at the moment due to old foundation-features.

Don't like the others, sorry.
