Here's the shortlist of baby names I'm considering that I generated with Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder. Let me know what you think.

Arlo - really like it. Different without being "out there"
Hamish - think you need to be in Scotland to get away with it but I really like it.
Milo - reminds me of a milky ovaltine type drink.
Seth - really nice. So long as the child doesn't have a lisp!
Skyler - a bit too celeb-y. But depends on where you live and the circles you mix in I guess. You might be a popstar for all I know! grin

lol, not a popstar thankfully and skyler is DH suggestion really. I really like Arlo too and only heard of it yesterday.

Do you think it's ok to have seth with a single syllable surname?

Think Arlo probably my fave out of your list.

Seth would go with a single syllable surname. Unless the single syllable surname was Smith! Then it really would be tricky if he has a lisp!

I like Arlo (I work with one!) and Seth.

I really dislike Skyler, sorry!

Arlo and Seth are actually on my list too. Love them both!

Arlo is really really lovely. Arlo Guthrie is fantastic and it always reminds me of him. I also really like Seth.

Arlo is the best name in the whole world grin
There's a song by Arlo guthries father called 'goodnight Arlo' which is just lovey...

Love Milo, probably because it's my nephew's name! Really cute on a baby.

DessieLou Sat 26-Jan-13 18:56:17

love Seth! The others are ok, except Skylar. Go for Seth!

Thanks for all the feedback. Have now ruled out Skyler, but then i wasn't that keen anyway. It's narrowed down to


I still have a few more months to decide so will probably be back before then
