I can't decide for DS2. Second name will probably be Robert. Any thoughts?

Definitely Callum.

Seth... Not to be rude but when I read 'Callum' I add ine lotion to it in my head! LOL
Seth is one of my favourite boy names, along with Silas. And Silas Robert has a ring to it smile

Every time, LOVE it. Seth is classy around here Callum is not (sorry!)

Both great.

Callum has a somewhat...negative reputation.

Seth is much nicer.

Seth, I have no bias, it just sounds nicer.

Seth! I love this name and wanted it as DC2s name but as DD is called beth, we can't use it sad

Callum as Seth always reminds me of the character from Emmerdale Farm. (Back in the days when it was still Emmerdale Farm!)

Thanks all for your thoughts. I too had thought of the Emmerdale connection for Seth but there are lots of other Seths since so i don't mind too much. Callum is DH's suggestion but it has been growing on me. My worry about Seth is that it might be a bit too unusual or faddy at the moment.

I know a mid thirties Seth IRL. There's also the radio 2 presenter Seth Lakeman (sp?).

Can you google most popular baby names for last few years to work out really how popular each name is?

Another vote for Seth.

Seth! Like Callum too but Seth is less popular and more characterful to my mind.

birdofthenorth Sun 07-Apr-13 23:47:43

PS every Callum I know is lovely though!

VivaLeBeaver Sun 07-Apr-13 23:53:44

I know two Callums and they're both total shits.

I love Seth, but isn't it approaching top 100? That would put me off. Callum isn't to my taste, sorry.

ZolaBuddleia Mon 08-Apr-13 08:48:25

Here you go: Seth

Seth was on our list for a boy, but we went for Callan in the end.
Very similar to Callum, but we preferred Callan, nn Cal.

Callum - hate Seth. But tbh Callum isn't a name I'd choose either.

Callum ..

Seth unless you can't stand his school mates calling him Seff.

Prefer Callum, just shame so popular.
