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)

Nate (short for Nathaniel if you want)

Arlo is lovely it reminds me of Harlow I'm sure a celeb has a Harlow.

Ooh love Tate as well

what about Tate?

i think it goes well with your other boys' names.

I love Rupert but unfortunately DH has ruled it out for us sad

Out of the original list you posted I would pick Oscar (which was also on our shortlist)

Oscar is my favourite, but Jacob is great too.

Harrison is the same as Kyle and Tyler imo.
Harry is much nicer.

I almost wish I had another ds to name, as I'm totally in love with the name Arlo.

Arg I do like Rufus.Rupert is growing on me a bit I just don't want my child to hate his name and that ones a real marmite name so would be a risk

Hi Beutician, I love Rupert (and Rufus). They would be on my list but DH says they are too posh. I also like Jacob and Fin from your list. I'm afraid I'm another who would have worries about Kyle and Tyler. I'm not mad keen on Harrison either for similar reasons. How about Henry shortened to Hal?

My little boy is Noah, I really like Oscar and loved Jacob, but already have a Godson called Jacob.
Our friends called their baby Rupert and when I heard it, I couldn't picture a baby being called Rupert! Now I've met him of course it suits him perfectly ;)

Leftfield - my sister's little boy is Deacon, I love it and I've never come across another (although Rupert will probably achieve that too!).

Liam or William?

Catchingmockingbirds Thu 03-Jan-13 22:31:26

I love Harrison, that was on my shortlist too.

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 21:58:57

How about Harrison.We do like Harry but thought maybe a bit too different to the other two

CheeseStrawWars Thu 03-Jan-13 21:18:07

Rufus as an alternative for Rupert?

Or Reuben/Ruben?

BeauticianNotMagician Thu 03-Jan-13 21:08:39

Thank you for all the suggestions.I am going to put some of them to DP he doesn't seem too enthusiastic at the moment.

I'm 21 weeks. I think he would happily wait until labour and try to have a conversation with me about names wink

BoyMeetsWorld Thu 03-Jan-13 19:28:10

Not keen on your shortlist ones I'm afraid - don't have the unusual factor of your other DS's? (love ds2's name btw)

I like Jude & Kit too.

Also how about..

Catchingmockingbirds Thu 03-Jan-13 19:26:41

I'm due on the 29th of May, the thread moved really fast and I lost track of it for a while. I'll need to catch up with everyone again.

WhispersOfWickedness Thu 03-Jan-13 19:12:20


Please use it, DH wouldn't let me sad

everlong Thu 03-Jan-13 19:08:53

Sorry totally missed that post from OP! I was thinking what is she on about! grin

I love Rupert. Poncetastic.

Tw1nkle Thu 03-Jan-13 19:06:36

I quite like Rupert!

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.

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??

amck5700 Thu 03-Jan-13 19:01:00

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.

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
