I like it - it's my son's middle name smile - can never remember which particular way it's spelt though blush Think ours is Alastair and OHs brother is Alister.

Lovely name.

Splendid name - would have been high up our list had we not one on each side of the family already. Prefer Alasdair for what it's worth.

BlueChampagne according to my OH you can't have it with a "d" as that is "wet/gay/pansy" hmm

I really like it.

I only know nice Alistairs!

I prefer Alasdair too. But generally a good name.

I like it! I prefer the Alistair spelling/pronunciation.

great name. underused as well.

My DS is Alastair and I'm always complimented on his name. I only know one other child with the same name, but your Alistair spelling, so it's not overused. I still adore his name and it's making a possible DS2 name choice very difficult! Luckily I've got until the end of February...

I have an Alasdair so obviously I love it. We're scottish and it's the traditional spelling here.

my dp is Alastair and even now in his 30's people are ALWAYS spelling his name wrong! a lot of poeple call him ali, i never have done but i know as a child that is what all his school friends called him, so make sure you like the shortening as it may well get shortened even if you dont do so yourself.
