I have two ds already Evan and the grey stuff you use to do pottery with a ton on the end of it(Dont want to be found on here).Hope that makes sense

So far list for ds3 is:
Rupert(DP likes but I'm not so sure)

don't like Rupert tbh but rest are fine - prefer Finlay or Findlay to Finley. My favourite of those would be Jacob.

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 14:23:15

Ha I think DP is the only one that likes Rupert. I also like Kyle and Tyler.

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 14:28:59

I would view Kyle and Tyler as a bit schemey or Chavvy as you say down south - your other names are modern style but adding one of those to the mix does make it sound a bit chavvy - sorry sad

names I think would go nicely with your other sons names are Keir, Lewis or Joe/Joseph.

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 14:29:55

I meant to say that your other names don't sound Chavvy, not sure if that came across right.

Jacob goes well!

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 14:40:54

Amck That's what I worried about too.Yes they do sound a lil chavvy.I like to go for names that I don't hear yelled across the school playground.Everyone hates ds2s name but we all love it and it suits him perfectly

My ds is Josiah, obviously I love it

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 15:12:29

I know what you mean. What about Alexander? It would go nicely but not sure how common it is where you are. or maybe Thomas or Gregor/Gregory/Greig? I think a classic or medern classic might make a nice trio.

Pearly Lovely name grin

I think Oscar goes best with your other names/

Other ideas


BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 16:14:37

Ooh really like Jude and Gray

katolla Thu 03-Jan-13 16:16:46

Gray might be too rhymey with your other DS

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 18:37:03

Yes of course didn't think of that.Boys names are so hard I've struggled every time

GlobalDisaster Thu 03-Jan-13 18:42:54

Francis, Frank, good solid grown up names.

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 18:43:09

Jackson, Guy, Hayden, Mark?

^ these are ^chavvy now? Okaaay.

amck where do you get Kyle and Tyler from? I'm confused. The OP doesn't mention them?

Catchingmockingbirds Thu 03-Jan-13 18:51:28

Oh another boy beautician grin congrats, we're having a girl (I used to chat to you on the may thread).

I love all of your names you've chosen and most of them were on my not so short list for boys names. I'd also add Isaac, Noah and Tobias to the list.

Catchingmockingbirds Thu 03-Jan-13 18:52:50

And I don't think any sound chavvy.

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 18:55:51

Catching Hi when are you due then? Is it June.

Kyle is just very common here.Im just trying to think of names that go.

Whenever I suggest a name to DP he just says I like Rupert confused

Everlong - Ha I think DP is the only one that likes Rupert. I also like Kyle and Tyler.


I am only going on the experience of where I am and both names, in particular Kyle have been used to death and mostly on council housing schemes. May be totally different where you or the OP live. Nothing wrong with the names in themselves, but when you add either to the existing names of the OP, it seems to bring them down a bit. No offence meant to anyone.

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 19:02:30

Whenever I suggest a name to DP he just says I like Rupert

Does he want to name his son after a yellow bear in Tartan trousers??

peanutMD Thu 03-Jan-13 19:05:06

I like Oscar smile

Although Oscar, along with Finlay and Jacob do seem to be v.popular ATM in my area atleast.

Tbh though my DS has a name that seems to be v.popular in his age group (and is rated chavvy on here hmm) but it doesn't bother me so much as we like it.
