so far have been called Rory.

3 baby boys I know, all born in the last 10 days all named Rory.

Was there a law passed that I missed...?? Lovely name, I love it, but I didn't know it had become compulsory...!

The last three baby boys I know of (admittedly born over 3 months) have been called Leo.

Bathsheba Sat 12-Jan-13 09:33:53

Good point - it may just be compulsory in Scotland -we have weird laws..!!!

Only know two this year-Arthur and Rex

VickyU Sat 12-Jan-13 23:57:16

That's funny. DH and I have narrowed our short list down to Arthur and Rory but I know 3 boys born in the last 3 weeks that have been called Arthur! So we thought Rory was still a bit under the radar. Obviously not!

I know two born this year - Charlie and Ben.

Our DS is due in a few weeks - I had Rory on my list but DH vetoed. Didn't have any of the other names mentioned here so far though.

I think Rory is always pretty common in Scotland and Ireland, probably more under the radar in England.

ToomuchWaternotWine Sun 13-Jan-13 02:15:10

Op, I see your 3 Rory's and raise you 4 Ruby's and 5 Emily's in a row last year !! (For girls, obv) grin I'm in scotland too btw and I agree that Rory or Ruairidh (Gaelic spelling) is more common here than darn sarf.

Moominsarescary Sun 13-Jan-13 07:11:05

2 Tobys so far

SamsGoldilocks Sun 13-Jan-13 07:18:52

Just a Miles, but I had a Rory 4 years ago smile

AnathemaDevice Sun 13-Jan-13 09:38:14

I hope it isn't becoming too popular, DC3 is due in 2 weeks and will be Rory if it's a boy.

I only know of one baby born this year so far. He's called Boris. Can't see that exploding in popularity any time soon.

I'm just relieved to read it's not my fave boys' name the OP is talking about! Rory is quite uncommon here (Australia) but two of the three boys born this this year that I know have been Max.

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:13:05

I give you a Gustav and a Lowell smile

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:13:34

Boris is GREAT!

RustyBear Sun 13-Jan-13 10:16:20

Arthur and Rory - It's the Doctor Who effect! And maybe a bit of Merlin too...

GoldPlatedNineDoors Sun 13-Jan-13 10:19:48

I don't know any boys born in 2013 yet, but three girls - Holly, Amy and Ellie. Another due next.month pre-named.Maggie.

Its the year.of the "ee" sound round here

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:21:20

I think it's been the year of the ee sound for about 10 years now

I like Maggie though

LegoAcupuncture Sun 13-Jan-13 10:22:48

I Only know one born this year so far, called Blaise.

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:24:40

Doesn't that literally mean 'indifferent'? Or am I spelling it wrong?

MrGeresHamster Sun 13-Jan-13 10:25:22

Round here it seems to be two syllable names beginning with E...

GoldPlatedNineDoors Sun 13-Jan-13 10:25:54


RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:26:11

I am spelling it wrong.

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:26:29

thankyou! Sorry.

forgetmenots Sun 13-Jan-13 17:09:58

Three boys in the last six months all called Lachlan/Lauchlan. And two Ruairidhs, I'm in Scotland too! (Though they say Jack is the most popular name, I've never met a small one!)
