Does he like a drink, your DH? I'd like to have a beer with him and he can teach me new nicknames!

Yep Patsy shock he says his granda was nicknamed Patsy so I couldn't laugh out loud to his face but I did in my head!

I know quite a few wee Murrays.

Hahaha, I like your DH but would never, ever let him name any child of mine

These are his better suggestions. He was obsessed by Paidraigh (par-drik) for ages - nickname Patsy or Pob.

Fergus - OK, but a tractor really smile

Finbar - not my taste really.

But Jesus Wept - even Stanley is better than Murray!!

I appreciate that by DS4 names are harder to come by, but bloody hell, if this is what he's coming up with, best you find some soon!! grin

I like Gus as a shortened version, I hadn't thought of that.

I like fin, and I like Murray

His latest suggestions are Finbar and Fergus.

At least he's taking an interest I suppose smile

Go with Murray, or your son will forever be called Muriel.

Yep like the Murray mint smile

Even with a fada Muríel isn't pronounced Murray is it? He would get teased at school and people would assume he was female if they didn't know him. It's like a boy named Sue!

Like Murray mint?

Murray is a boys name. Def has an a in it. Fairly common in Scotland. I like it

And now he's saying Murragh - that's not even close is it?

Ds4 is due in 8 weeks and exp and I have been discussing names.

He has just text me and said he has found a name he loves.... Murry.

I said I like the name but that it is spelt wrong. I'm not 100% on the correct spelling but Murry just doesn't look right. So I googled and the most common version seems to be Murray.

(Or Moray, Muiredach, or Murrey as versions of the same name)

He says its Muríel (with a fada over the 'i'

Which to me is a girls name (Muriel's Wedding) and sounds nothing like Murray.

Any thoughts?
