What are your favourite boys names? Need some inspiration

Teamthrills Tue 23-Oct-12 15:45:32

I like Isaac. Also quite like Arden from your list.

I have an Ethan & think it's a good, strong name...

What are your other ds's called?

How about Aidan, Luke, Joshua, Alexander, Daniel, Henry, Tristan?

My favourite is Bruno, from your list Isaac and Oliver, Darrah is lovely with an Irish accent,not keen on Arden at all.
How about Conrad,Lucien or Linus

I will probably out myself if I tell you their names

ds1 has what mn considers a chavvy naughty boy name

Ds2 has a very American name, two actors in The Lost Boys have the same name.

Ds3 has the same name as a baby/toddler in eastenders

Ds4 has a biblical name which is very common now and people think I've named him after a wolf from twilight

I like Ethan, Alexander and Conrad, will run them past dp thankyou.

smable your right, it does sound lovely with an Irish accent Dp is Irish.

Oh, your fifth son! How about Quentin? It's derived from the Latin word for five!

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 23-Oct-12 18:13:18

I like Isaac most from your list. Not keen on your dp's two choices!

My favourite boys name is Aneurin which is probably not really your thing.

The only child i know called Arden is a girl, but thinking about it it is pretty unisex.

I like Conrad and Isaac and Arden.

Dogsmom Tue 23-Oct-12 18:42:21

If DD had been a boy we would have called him Isaac or Joseph.

Not keen on Arden but probably because I've only ever heard of Arden Grange which is a dog food.

WineOhWhy Tue 23-Oct-12 18:47:58

i also know a girl Arden so would assume it is a girls' name.

Viviennemary Tue 23-Oct-12 18:49:53

I like traditional names. Philip Joseph Michael. From your list I like Isaac best.

Moominsarescary Tue 23-Oct-12 19:03:44

I've only come across Arden in a book, dp knows some Irish Ardens so think that's where he's coming from.

He's already said no to dexter and Flynn along with many others! I think he's holding out for Darrah as this is what we were going to call ds3 until fil died and we named him after him.

We both like Reid but there's something in the back of my head saying no! I'll mention all the names put forward and see what he says.

Getagripp Tue 23-Oct-12 19:08:17

Arden makes me think of hard on.


BeaWheesht Tue 23-Oct-12 19:09:39

Daragh is nice

Rowan is probably my favourite though

Moominsarescary Tue 23-Oct-12 19:10:33

get well that's not why I disliked it but yes your right thinking about it it does!

I like all of ebooks suggestions with the exception of Tristan. I don't like either of your DPs choices.

I like Samuel, Alex, James, Matthew, Joe, Nathaniel, Louis, Christopher (Kit for short), Finlay. I also like Isaac and Oliver.

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 19:30:29

I have no idea what your Ds1 is called, but I LOVE all your other boys names.

Mine has the same name as your Ds4 and your Ds3 name was on my list.

Anyway, I like Isaac from your lists.

What about Leo, Luca, Ben, Alex, Fraser?

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 19:31:46

Oh Louis is good too...

cece Tue 23-Oct-12 19:32:03

Edward nn Eddie

Moominsarescary Tue 23-Oct-12 21:00:30

Hes saying no to everything!

melody ds1 is Connor

bigbluebump Tue 23-Oct-12 21:03:09

From your suggestions, op, I really like Arden and Isaac. I also love the suggestion above of Quentin or Quin for a fifth son.

(Darrah sounds feminine to me, sorry).

Leafmould Tue 23-Oct-12 21:18:37

Darrah is great, but would you consider spelling it daragh?

Moominsarescary Tue 23-Oct-12 21:28:13

leaf I should have put Darragh, which is how dh wants to spell it but I'm dyslexic and hadn't noticed I'd missed out the g! Hadn't thought about just the one r

Good luck making a decision that feels mutual.... I think it's rare a kid gets a name that was the first choice for both parents!
