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

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

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...

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

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

JugsMcGee Sat 26-Jan-13 09:12:53

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

I really dislike Skyler, sorry!

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!

Mellymog Sat 26-Jan-13 08:41:43

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?

PickleSarnie Sat 26-Jan-13 08:38:40

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

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.
