I'm not overly fussed about how well they go with the other DCs. After all as an adult how often do you say yours and your siblings names together?

My names:
Woodrow (Woody)

DPs names (as I'm pretending to humour him):

Last name is double barralled. First part rhymes with tasted and second is castle. Other DCs are Lilly, Jack and Alexandra.

Forgot to say suggestions are very much welcome!

Your DPs list id hilarious. Wolfric? Really? I have already said on your other thread I have a Cooper so love it. Don't like Thomas, it's a bit wet. Woodrow is nice though.

That's his list after I vetoed Mercutio, Amadeus and Hemingway hmm
He had such normal tastes when we named the others!

Are you American?

They're all horrible. <runs away>

I kind of like Hendrix actually.

I think Woody will have the piss taken throughout his life.

Thomas fits with his siblings names the best.

I think I like Cooper.

Thomas is nice.... the rest are mad! Your other DC's have beautiful names. If you like Wolfric how about Wilfrid nn Wilf as something slightly less X-Men!

LemonBreeland Thu 09-May-13 14:06:28

I quite like Mercutio, but I've always liked Shakespearean names.

It seems a bit mean to saddle the 4th one with a novelty name when the others all got proper names.

There's middle ground between boring and absolutely fucking mental grin

Go for Thomas - it's a classic and fits best with your other DCs' names.

DrSeuss Thu 09-May-13 14:14:00

None of them! Sorry!


TheOriginalSteamingNit Thu 09-May-13 14:15:05

1. Thomas

2. The others.

smogwod Thu 09-May-13 14:15:28

If you like Woody, how about Edward? Fits with your other dcs and would give him more options as he gets older

fortifiedwithtea Thu 09-May-13 14:16:52

TBH the only one I like is Hendrix, that is a very cool name.

Try and imagine what shortening/nickname or hell other kids will give him with the other names.

Goldenhandshake Thu 09-May-13 14:19:00

Thomas and Cooper are the best of the bunch, the others are inflicting some clear cut, bullying inducing names on a child imo, please remember children can be very cruel.

DonnyOsmondsTeeth Thu 09-May-13 14:19:57

Wolfric is FAB, with Wolfie as a nn.

JamesJazz Thu 09-May-13 14:21:23

Literally the only one it would be kind to name a child is Thomas. Which, fyiw, is a very nice name.

You CANNOT call a British child Woody- it's a slang term for erection.

Your dh's taste in names is bonkers hmm

RooneyMara Thu 09-May-13 14:24:34

Thomas or Cooper or W - hang on it's meant to be Wulfric I think. NOT Hendrix.

I am dying to know what rhymes with Tasted. Wasted? Basted? grin

You don't have to say!

Littlehousesomewhere Thu 09-May-13 14:25:08

I quite like them all except Gibson.

The best are cooper, woodrow and wolfric.

Thomas is a bit dull, although it does sound like your last name is interesting so maybe that doesn't matter as much.

RooneyMara Thu 09-May-13 14:25:24

Oh God sorry not cooper. Who wrote that? I meant Woody. Woody is Ok. Cooper is, well a bit odd.

Bowlersarm Thu 09-May-13 14:26:08


I like unusual names, but your other choices seem quite clumsy.

Your other children have lovely names so it would be a shame to land this one with an ugly name....! If I had to chose one of them, I suppose it would be Cooper.

I would go with Thomas I think. Wolfric is the only one I think is totally barking though so you could get away with any ofthe others I think although now it has been pointed out I think a little Woody wwould get teased as he got older.
