These are the names I like today (let's bear in mind that yesterday it was Bede!).

What do we think?

I have an Arthur, ds1 is good friends with a Tristan, it is lovely. I know several Seths. I like Seth but for my taste it is too short and nicknamey, I don't do 1 syllable names.

You are definitely moving in the right direction! Seth - love it. Tristan is ok but I've met some really wet ones. Would you consider Tristram instead? Arthur- ok, bit North London. Good luck!

I do like Tristan actually a lot. Arthur and Bede are your least good ones. What about Gawain? I think that is genuinely cool.

Seth most definitely - but then I am biased ;)

Blu Sat 06-Oct-12 20:44:43

Seth or Arthur.

V cool.

olliesmum234 Sat 06-Oct-12 21:11:45

Tristan is too 'triste' = sad for me, sorry.

Seth is nice, as is Bede.

LadyThompson Sat 06-Oct-12 21:14:28

Arthur or Bede get my vote.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 06-Oct-12 21:20:42

Don't like Seth. Bede is bonkers.

Love Tristan.

How about Bramwell/Bram? Similar to Bede but nicer. Or Roland - you sound like the kind of person who might appreciate the beauty of Roland.

Yes to Tristan, Arthur and Seth. No to Bede.

Back2Two Sat 06-Oct-12 21:48:08


Non of the others.

May I suggest, Vincent (Vince)
Or (my new one) Walt.

What do you think?

Seth is lovely, lovely, lovely. I think you should use it just because I really wanted to use it if we'd had a boy but I have a lisp, I honestly can't even say it grin

DialMforMummy Sat 06-Oct-12 21:55:27

I'd like to back Walt. Not that it was in your selection....

DialMforMummy Sat 06-Oct-12 21:56:10

Otherwise Arthur. Dislike the others.

Clary Sat 06-Oct-12 21:57:57


Tho Roland is nice too Remus but DH didn't like it

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 06-Oct-12 21:59:25

Love Vincent but hate Vince.

Another 'oldie' favourite is Alain.

IWipeArses Sat 06-Oct-12 22:03:07

May I offer - Arturo

freerangelady Sun 07-Oct-12 09:15:34

I've never liked Seth as he's the Ancient Egyptian god of evil and all things bad!

OrangeFireandGoldashes Sun 07-Oct-12 11:34:21

Tristan x 1,000,000

free range I thought that was 'Set' not 'Seth'.

RachelHRD Sun 07-Oct-12 23:00:32

Seth but then I too am biased but I only know of one other at my DS school so still uncommon enough to be different smile
