We were set on Hamish. I am having doubts, will he become Ham/Hammy/Egg?

We like Wolf. Not sure it will suit a red head as the last 2 have been.

I like a bit crazy.

Not Wolf. Please. not Wolf

For some reason I thought you were having a girl! Guess not.

What about Rufus for a redhead?

Wolf is dire. Remus?

ZZZenAgain Sun 02-Oct-11 18:35:12

not for me those two names. Don't think you get from Hamish to Ham that easily but I knew an awful Hamish growing up so I am opposed to the name on those grounds. Hold on to them but look around for a few more and wait till you see your baby. Maybe you'll see which name fits when he is in front of you.

<shakes head>

Back away from the mad woman. I have suggested every name under the sun. She rejects them all.

Hamish is fine fgs.

But I still LOVE Wolf.

Rafe's good. And dh approves.

But seriously, Hamish is good.

Northernlurker Sun 02-Oct-11 18:38:49

Hal?

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:41:01

But does Hamish go with the others? I DO like it. I just really hate Ham.

NL the last one was a girl grin

It is HARD.

I love Rufus. But we called the dog Rupert. Too similar.

SOH i like all your suggestions, i just wish dh had no say.

We also have a Hugo. Hugo and Hamish.

ZZZenAgain Sun 02-Oct-11 18:41:55

do you want to say what the otherdc are called?

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:43:28

Wolf is good. If he came out all dark haired and broad shouldered <wince> like dh he could be Wolf.

Heathcliffe?

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:44:21

Hmmm too identifying i think. All fairly mad. Maybe SOH could say.

Northernlurker Sun 02-Oct-11 18:45:02

No to Heathcliff - come on! You do not want people yelling 'Cathy' after him for evermore.

Wolf is dreadful. Remus is (obviously!) a good suggestion though.

Not over-fond of Hamish. Hector?

ZZZenAgain Sun 02-Oct-11 18:45:35

ok, well they don't especially need to match, just wondering what your taste is. Wolf and Hamish quite different type of name to my mind.

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:46:32

He does need to be in front of us i think. All the others were named after they were born. Some 6 weeks later blush

This is a shortlist. HA!

Northernlurker Sun 02-Oct-11 18:46:57

Brynmor or Bryn? Means 'Hill'

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:47:52

Cathy! Arf. You could be right.

Remus is very good. Too HP though?

Meteorite Sun 02-Oct-11 18:49:04

I like Hamish smile

Makinglists Sun 02-Oct-11 18:49:14

I have a Hamish so am biased he's only little but the only nickname we use on him is Mish - Ham dosen't seem to work a nn. Don't know if that helps.

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:50:33

Bryn, no. Sounds a bit bradley.

Dh family is all welsh, mine mostly Scottish.

Northernlurker Sun 02-Oct-11 18:51:09

Most people call the HP character Lupin so I think it's ok. Come to that - isn't Wolf too Gladiatoresque? (shows age)

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:51:29

You see i liked Mish. Dh said 'Nooooo, anything but Mish!'. Gah.

Northernlurker Sun 02-Oct-11 18:51:45

Bryn is WELSH! <<throws up hands and sympathises with SOH>> grin

largeginandtonic Sun 02-Oct-11 18:52:28

Bet dh would like Remus. He loves all the Gladaitor and Greek mythology names.

DamselWithADulcimer Sun 02-Oct-11 18:53:24

Oh, go for Hamish. It's a fab name. We had a brilliant dog called Hamish, and he was known as Mishmash. Don't tell your DH that one.
