DS is Harris James. What would you call DC2?

I would like a Scottish name somewhere in there, but we're pretty stuck!

Lewis

I was going to say Lewis, too! How about Torquil?

I don't know why but Rosie immediately came to mind for a girl!

For boys how about Callum, Gregory, Logan or Angus...

Males: Andrew, Cameron

Females: Rhoda, Seonaid

Lachlan, Hamish, Duncan

Iona, Skye, Kirsty

Any good?

farmersdaughter Sun 05-May-13 20:11:34

Campbell or Fraser

DontmindifIdo Sun 05-May-13 20:15:44

I would avoid: Paris, Ferris, Rolf and Harry. grin

the ones I would say for boys have already been suggested, Hamish, Cameron, Fraser.

Girls names are harder, and I think you need something strong to go with Harris, but most of hte strong girls names I like aren't scottish...

Avoid Lewis smile

Angus, Alasdair, Fraser, Lachlan, Hamish/Seumas, Calum, Gregor, Ruairidh

Iona, Isla (though Isla and Harris is funny!), Kirsten, Catriona?

Can see a lot of these have been suggested, sorry!

Lewis is too popular in Scotland. It's no 2 I think.

Iona does not go with our surname (in a Jenna Taylor kind of way, not just that it doesn't match).

Kirsty and Callum are both out due to family members.

A Scottish middle name works for me if we can't agree on a Scottish forename.

Thank you for all the suggestions so far. I shall speak to DH and see if there's any we both like.

GRO Scotland just published last years first names for babies. Why don't you google that and see if anything takes your fancy?
