I'm due really soon with dc3 the older two are Kaitlin and George. We have a girls name which is the pet names for both grannies, lilibet rose, which I know has been written off on here before as being too twee but we all like it. Why are boys so hard to name?

I like Seth, Ezra, Zachary, zebedee (shortened to zeb) it actually goes with our difficult last name! Dh has suggested using the same name as our dog, apparently if it was god enough for Indiana jones its good enough for him, Douglas, bear or wolfie. He's also suggested Keith which is a name all boys in his family get lumbered with and I dislike which our son has as a middle name. He's also suggested Charles after my dad, our des also has it as a middle name and I have a niece called Charlotte so I think that's enough named for my dad even though he's lovely.

My dd suggested yoda or iggy which I'm not sure of but my ds won't suggest anything, just said they are all silly.

They are only having an input as they are at secondary.

Any ideas I'm beginning to get a bit desperate!

I clearly mean good enough rather than god enough grin

I love Elliott. If I ever have a boy..

I used to like Elliot but now I work with one, he is the workplace twat which has put me right off

Definitely Yoda grin

How about Jem (Jeremy, Jeremiah), Rex, Mitchell, today's wacky suggestion Columbus.

I bet you have a girl after all that.

I suppose if we wait and see what it looks like when it comes out yoda would be most suitable especially if it arrives this Friday

Like your choices except Zebedee - thinks of Magic Roundabout and a mad dog.
Not keen on your partners choices other than Charles.

Zachery is lovely or Adam, Aiden, Samuel, Joseph/Joe, Daniel, Jacob.

I don't like any of yours, sorry.

Still debating, kids are still not coming up with anything, I am hoping if we go for Zeb that people would have forgotten about the Magic Roundabout by the time it starts school.

I'm not sure about your ideas either Remus but I'll add them to the list too

How about another Magic Roundabout character, Dylan?


Simon goes beautifully with your other two.

Love Zachary - that was on our shortlist along with Aidan/Haydn, Nathan, Leon, Christian, Anthony, Dominic, Lewis, Ciaran, Daniel

How about:

I think Zachary goes best with your other DC's names.

Eli was our choice if dd had been a DS

Thanks for the names I'll add them to the list

Ezra is a great name and Iggy could be short for Ignatius. Or how about Tristan, Quentin or Xavier?

Simeon is a good choice
