I'd like to use Hugh as a middle name (after my brother) but I'm struggling to think of a suitable first name.

Any suggestions?

Farmersdaughter, my siblings both had the same initial but were different sexes - never really made a problem because one was Miss and the other Mstr/Mr. smile

scone stop it, stop it, stop it....grin DS and a brother with the same name hmm

Horrace Jonathan Hugh sounds lovely, exbf before DH called...that's right Jonathan {boo}

Neither DH or I like Christoper or Chris. But we do like Kit.

Do like Hector Hugh, however dd is H o n o r

not sure if it's a great idea to have too 'H' in the family, mail would be a nightmare grin Saying that I don't have friends with Alice and Anna..nearly really given it a 2nd thought until today. Maybe not such a problem.

Oh yes, hadn't thought of that. smile

I'd be wary of having Hugh followed by any name beginning with J, just because of the ability to say Huge instead.

I'm 17 weeks and was planning on using Hugh as a first name. You could flip reverse it.
Potential middle names for us:

Still struggling with Hugh as a middle name. I think it's due to it being 1 syllable and the fact our surname is 3 syllable.

Thinking about maybe something like:

James Edward Hugh Surname

Graham Hugh
Edward Hugh
David Hugh
Christopher Hugh

I have a Christopher Hugh smile

Oooooohh Hugh is a great name.

I have a Hugh James if that helps?

Nickname wise for Hugh we go with Shug, Hugh Pugh, Hughdle Noodle, or just Huge (cos he is a big boy). grin

Or Geoffrey? Not a huge fan myself but it does go well with Hugh.

legalalien Fri 15-Feb-13 21:03:38

Something norman for sure. I like Robert Hugh as magbob suggests, but otherwise William? Or Richard? Frederic(k)?

It made me laugh three

and gave me another name to torment him with, poor child

ThreeBeeOneGee Fri 15-Feb-13 20:18:29

My comment makes a bit more sense (although not much) in the context that I misread the OP and thought you were looking for a middle name to go with the first name Hugh.

I'll just get my coat... smile

It is a family name for us too and although I was concerned about nicknames, no one apart from me uses them though, not even 'H' which was one I worried about.

And despite the fact that he is taller than my 9yr old dd even though he is 7, he hasn't been called Huge.

I don't call him hubaloo, hubster, or hunky monkey, no siree

Thank you for the suggestions. Ace.

Annoying we can't use for various reason, Edward, Frederick or Dominic.

Oscar Hugh X does sounds great, as well as Lawrence. Had already suggested this to DH.

Love Benjamin however one of my very very best friends has a Ben. However we only see each other every 2 or 3 years. I don't think this is a problem?

I would love a Peter, however DH doesn't like the nn Pete. Boo boo!

Daniel, is great. Concerned about its popularity and not a massive fan of Dan.

Scone I would utterly love love to use Hugh as a first name, however I already have a DD starting with a 'H' however it's silent.

The only name DH and I can agree on his James or Jamie. Still TTC..but i'm a planner control freak grin

Benjamin was my first thought, Benjamin Hugh is just gorgeous!

ThreeBeeOneGee Fri 15-Feb-13 14:57:37

Cumber. grin You could claim it's a family name.

My ds has Hugh as his middle name and he is called Robert. I think that works well. I really regret not calling him Hugh, a family name, but was concerned about nicknames.
