I'm expecting DC2 in June, a brother for my DD. I like quirky but not too quirky names and whilst i had a great name picked out for another girl, I'm finding boys names a bit trying! Which so you think would be best from these or can anyone suggest others? I'd like a name that goes well with DDs name which is Eliza. The middle name will be James

The short list so far-

Samuel
Arthur
Laurence
Rory
Toby

Thanks !

Laurence ,then Rory.The other names are fine but I wouldn't really say they are quirky at all.

My order of preference would be

Samuel
Toby
Rory
Laurence
Arthur

Other names that I think go with Eliza are
Reuben
Henry
Andrew
Gabriel

Love all your names (except Toby). Unless it's Tobias - which for some reason i like more.
Esp like Rory and Samuel.

I'd go for Laurence or Rory.

Samson instead of Samuel?

Laurence by a mile. Don't like Rory or Arthur much, sorry.

Goes really well with Eliza too (also a lovely name btw)

Sorry Laurence isn't for me - like Samuel best from your list.

CheshireDing Tue 02-Apr-13 20:13:07

I don't like Laurence at all, sorry.

Samuel isn't quirky though.

Toby and Eliza and Toby James sound nice

Laurence is at the top of my list by a mile. Love Lori/Laurie for a boy.

Samuel is brilliant.

Toby is a nickname for a penis whrre i'm from.

Thanks all! Lots of things to argue over- discuss with DH and some new ones too. I love Henry and Guy too but I expect DH won't. Boys names are harder than girls I think!

Lionsntigersnbears Wed 03-Apr-13 08:11:54

...a penis! really? Cripes sjupes where abouts are you?

sjupes Wed 03-Apr-13 08:53:06

N.e scotland grin tobias is ok but toby is definitely a willy here blush same with boab that's a willy too... i have no idea why we use so many boys names for them!

Lionsntigersnbears Wed 03-Apr-13 19:29:57

I'd never heard of that one before! blush. oops!

According to the MN collective it's only round where i live - the rest of britain via MN see it as a perfectly normal name smile
