So I have 3 boys and ds4 is due in 9 weeks....

So far I have a George, Thomas and Ollie.

We have a shortlist of names which we like but struggling to come to a decision and DH and I have different favourites.

Shortlist is:
Monty (Montague) - bit concerned that too much like a dog's name and the Monty Python connection!
Henry (DH doesn't particularly like it)
Theo (Theodore)
Edward (but couldn't use Ted as short name as with our surname would be a clothes label!)

Can't remember the other names we liked as they are on a list at home but will add on to this thread later!

Any other suggestions welcomed!

Love Edward best but I think it's nicest nn is ted/teddy.

Have you considered Frederick nn Freddie.

Benjamin is lovely but I would worry about the alliteration too.

How about Albert? I have an Oliver too and I would definitely consider Albert for another son.

Yep I like Freddie Iris good suggestion!

Theo or monty. I have a theo (dore) he is 13.

my othet boys are oscar reuben.

Sam! It's perfect with George, Thomas and Ollie. I also know a gorgeous baby Hector...

I like Theo very much, but you seem against the repeat of initial T, so I've placed it last, Hugo would be my first choice though.

Theo or Monty.

What about Duncan? Or Francis NN Frankie.

My favourites from your list are Henry and Edward, both were on our boy list.

MajesticWhine Thu 10-Jan-13 21:48:58

From your list, I really like Theo and Henry.
I love Edward too, but would be put off for the reason you gave.
Not keen on Monty or Hugo.

OctoberCarrot Thu 10-Jan-13 21:57:05

Hugo was top of our list for ds1 but is very popular where I am though I do love name and love love love theo. personallyI would avoid Edward with your surname. How about Alex? Or Jamie?

Bakingtins Thu 10-Jan-13 22:33:59

Jonathan - he could be Jonty as a NN if you liked Monty.

amck5700 Thu 10-Jan-13 23:48:54

Daniel - been said before but was first name that sprung to mind

Ham69 Fri 11-Jan-13 00:36:12

I actually love all of your choices (one's my DS's name).
For some reason, Louis came to mind. Also, have you thought about Benedict instead of Benjamin?

Clary Fri 11-Jan-13 00:51:14

OP loving your name ideas. My fave of your suggestions is Henry but if DH is not keen that;s not good. I also like Edward. Don't do alliteration, it's often a bad sign for some reason (IME anyway)

Never mind a fashion label, I see you already live with Dr Who btw grin

HenriettaChicken Fri 11-Jan-13 00:51:15

Ooh yes, Samuel. Lovely.

Britchic Fri 11-Jan-13 05:02:40

Hugo.... we have one and he is Hughie as a nn.
I love Sam too.... but our Sam is one of 4 in his year - ouch!!
Also like Theo from your list.
Good luck!
