I think it's time for a Jimmy. You just don't hear enough Jimmys around these days. I know a Jim but I think Jimmys more cheeky.

I rather like Alaska. And I'd go for Scott for a boy.

I like Gregory!!

haha tell me about it!! I do actually like the name Alfie but I feel my lifes confusing enough half the time :L and more seriously i think if your going to give your name to your son shouldnt it be your first born not your 4th?

You're very brave to add another to your brood - good for you!!! I'm not mad keen on Alaska or Tiffany to be honest but Alexa isn't too bad. How about Alfie after your husband? It's a gorgeous name and still in fashion!

I don't think you can go wrong with Scott tbh - It continues your surnamey theme without being obviously a surname. For girls Alexa would be my favourite from your choices but prefer Alexis.

How about:

Albert (Albie)

So me and my hubby, Alfie, have 1yr old triplet boys: Jackson Danny, Spencer Frederick & Tyler Shane.
We also recently adopted (well foster-to-adopt) my 5yr old, kinda long lost nephew - Darren Shepherd "Shep".

And now Im pregnant we're really struggling on baby names.
Last time it was much easier:
Jackson's after my late brother. Danny's after my hubbys best friend.
Spencer we just liked and Frederick was because Freddy's like my husbands favourite boys name but he gave it to his nephew.
Tyler again we liked and Shanes my brother-in-law.

This time just nothing jumps of the page - i'll put our lists as there are at the moment below.

Scott - We almost used this before. Its probably the front runner at the moment.
Logan - I like but I dont think Alfies sold.
Tobias/Toby - nice solid name, we quite like it!
Gavin - same as above.
Jared - Alfie likes this but Im not 100%
Casper - I've liked this for a long time but Alfie hates it so its not gonna happen.

My husband quite likes kind of grandadish names especially ie/y names (like Freddy and actually like his own). So we've talked about about: Archie, Henry, Edward, Charlie, Arthur. All of which we like, there great names but theres no like, "yeah thats gotta be it, i love it!"

We like Skye, Lyra, Holly I just dont, I dont LOVE them!
Alexa*- I really like the sound of the name. I like the nicknames Lex/Lexi. I like its not too common but still easy to say & spell.
Alaska*- When naming our boys my hubbys always liked more traditional names and I thought he'd never go for this one but I fell In love with it reading "looking for alaska' and when I suggested it to him he, surprisingly, really liked it. I think again its got a nice sound and theres just a nice feel about the name.
Tiffany - We like (probably not quite as much as the two above) but people tend not like it when you ask them.

So Ive rambled on but basically we're really stuck and any help would be great!
