Think we are down to our final 3. I can't say I love any of them but these are the 3 that stand out the most. What do you prefer? Or can you think of any others we may like? Surname Adams

I have a Rory James and I love it. Not too unusual but unlikely to be one of many in his peer group either.

Lol I have a Rory James too. Theres also a Joshua and Finn in his class.

I know several Finlays,a couple of Joshuas and only 1 Rory..they are all perfectly nice names but I would go for Rory,I like that it doesn't have any fixed connotations of age/class etc.

I love Rory! It goes well with your surname.

I like Rory best I think. Also like Joshua, though not a huge fan of when first name ends with same letter that last name starts with, I don't think it flows that well. Finlay goes with your surname well but I don't really like it.

Wow everyone seems to prefer Rory so far!

Another vote for Rory here.

HappyJustToBe Tue 26-Mar-13 19:48:46

I prefer Rory.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. I do have a soft spot for Rory though.

Three great names, but Rory is lovely.

Rory! There are Finns and Finlays everywhere currently. I like Joshua too though.

Artichook Tue 26-Mar-13 20:22:13

I'm going to go against the grain and say Rory is way too popular at the mo. I know 5 under 6. I don't know any little Finlays or Joshuas. I love Joshua.

Finlay or Rory

I have a Rory too! Bloody love it. Not keen on Finlay or Joshua. Esp not Joshua altho couldn't tell you why.

Joshua & Finlay were my favs during pregnancy, Still love Joshua but DS just didn't suit it - he's a Noah.
However don't think it goes well with Adams.
I really like Rory Adams

in order of favourite to least favourite

1. Rory
2. Joshua
3. Finlay

Rory for me too, but I'm biased because I have a Rory... Finlay is lovely as well, and both of them go well with your surname. Not quite so keen on Joshua.

As for other suggestions, how about Ronan?

whitewineintherain Wed 27-Mar-13 00:19:18

Rory, all three names are good but prefer Rory as it's less common than the other two.

Not Finlay (I love it BTW) as initials are FA (fuck all).
