Please can you suggest some boys names for me, I have a healthy list of girls name that I really like but really struggle with boys.

Top two at the mo are Amos and Jasper.

Also quite like (but probably wouldn't use for various reasons):

Orlando
Roman
Otis
Orson
Solomon
Chester
Walter
Nelson
River

I'm quite drawn to nature names and names with a but of history, outside top 100.

If it helps, my favourite girls names are:

Clementine, Flora, Rosa, Claudia, Saffron, Flavia, Delilah

Ooh we have very similar tastes and I too am struggling to pick a boy's name.

Our initial ideas were along the lines of:
Austin
Silas
Magnus
Malachi
Basil
Bruno
Otis
Percy
Ezekiel
Gideon
Fergus
Monty
Seth
Thaddeus
Xavier

I think we have whittled in down to a choice between Fergus, Otis, Ezekiel, Gideon and Malachi. Of course I would have used my all-time favourite Solomon if it didn't rhyme with my blasted surname! angry

Really like Amos, Solomon, Roman, Quentin and Clement. Great underused classics!

The problem with Hector is its meaning (bully) as well as the lack of nicknames (Heckgrin).

Ambrose?

Does he toe mean bully? My hector is not a bully! I do hate heck though! It's hector!

Yes, the verb 'to hector' means 'to torment or bully'. Shame as the name sounds nice otherwise.
