Thanks everyone!

I like Cameron but DH has vetoed for several reasons, including another family member of the same generation having it. Not a great fan of other names-that-could-be-surnames, I have to admit.

I used to like Lawrence, then taught two terrible ones and won't ever get past them! Same with Gregory...

Matthew goes well with Alastair.

I was coming on to suggest Keir or Cameron. Fraser and Innes are also nice with Alistair?

Alastair is my son's middle name, his first name is probably a bit too celtic for your taste - it's Ciar or more commonly Keir. I obviously think they go nicely together smile

Alastair is a lovely name, what about

Ooh I like Laurence, does sound very English and traditional - goes well with Alistair too!

I nannied for a lovely family a couple of decades ago and always loved the names of the boys I looked after. They were Alistair (middle name James) and Laurence. Gorgeous boys, too.

Definitely Hamish then kurly ;)

How about these for Hadrians Wall compromises that might be nice with Alastair?:

I'm not as helpful with traditional English names (my DS list is very like drama's!) but I always imagine royal names: George, Henry, William, Charles, Edward...

I don't think I'd be allowed any really traditional Scottish names... Shame as there are some lovely ones! Might manage one as a middle name, but probably not first name. DH is definitely NOT Scottish and comes from a very traditional English family...

drama our ds lists are very similar smile

Forgot Fergus and Angus too.
Every boy born at the moment seems to either be Cameron or Logan.

We wanted a scottish boy's name. Our list was:
Our bump ended up as dd so we haven't used any of them yet.
Also love Fredrick though.

Hi pixie! grin

Always happy to indulge the Scot in me...

forgetmenots Sun 25-Nov-12 15:56:32

Can help with Scottish names! Fraser, Cameron, Angus, Lachlan, Malcolm, Stewart for a start?

pixiestix Sun 25-Nov-12 15:43:08

Hello, fancy seeing you here smile smile smile

Frederick is really nice.

I will have a think. Do you like Scottish influenced names?

kurlyvoice Sun 25-Nov-12 15:06:17

Hi everyone,

Am currently 26 weeks with DC2. We still have our girl's name (Madeleine) from choosing DS's, but another boy is proving tricky. We need to sort out two middle names as well (my son's are James and Spencer) hence the panic!

Our surname is a very common monosyllabic name beginning with W, so we don't want monosyllabic first names (at least not as given names).

We have Sebastian and Frederick (nn Freddie) on the list at the moment, but DH is not convinced, so thoughts on those too would be appreciated. We also have about a million nephews/godsons so a lot of lovely classic names are out!

Please help - and thanks! smile
