..except me <sobs>, what are your thoughts on my other current favourites?


Wish I hadn't already used Ralph!!!

Milton - steriliser
Augustus - gloop
Aubrey -Audrey
Bertram - bert or Bertie is a cute nickname. Bertram is a bit yuck.

Yes I used Ralph, Bitties - as a middle name for DS1, who is Clement (Clem). So the name for DS2 needs to work with Clem. Milton had been my favourite, followed by Innes and then Augustus so am feeling much more positive now. I also LOVE Grayson, Littlecherublegsbut DH doesn't like it. Oh and we know an atticus

Clem and Gus - fab. Look no further.

Was about to come and defend Milton solution and cold water sterilising.

Backs away from thread slowly....

How about Aloysius?

DS 2 was going to be Augustus. I even purposely conceived him to be born in August. The little bugger came out a girl. And I don't much like Augusta

Sorry but they are all really, really bad. Has you DH come up with anything that is not going to make your son a laughing stock at school and for the rest of his life ?

Milton and Augustus would be my favourites from your options, too.
I like the others, too, though.

I like Milton! It's the name of my Mum's guinea pig grin Not very keen on any of the others, to be honest.

August is better than Augustus.
Innes is nice.

Innes is a girl's name isn't it? Bertram is v v cool.

TarkaTheOtter Wed 26-Jun-13 12:52:01

I like Silas.

<deliberately doesn't comment on the others>

I like Innes...I love Clem(ent) btw,lovely name smile

Have a look Here it's a great blog,and this particular name list might have something?

niffernaffer Wed 26-Jun-13 17:31:41

Its a great blog Duff, thanks. Some cracking new options there. Beginning to get burnout. What about Mortimer? Clem and Mott/ Mort???

LittlePandaBear Wed 26-Jun-13 18:37:14

Have you thought about Austin?

MissingMyMarbles Wed 26-Jun-13 18:59:18

I like Bertram the best, of your choices, but Silas and Austin are great suggestions in keeping with your taste, no? I also like Arthur, and Benedict.

TigerSwallowTail Wed 26-Jun-13 19:01:12

I love Aubrey but I thought it was a girls name?

What's wrong with Milton?

MissingMyMarbles Wed 26-Jun-13 19:03:45

I like Charles too (not Charlie).

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Wed 26-Jun-13 21:18:42

I like Mortimer,especially with Clement smile

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Wed 26-Jun-13 21:22:09

I thought Innes was a girls name but I love all your other ideas. Think Clement needs to go down on my shortlist. Angus would be an alternative for Augustus.
Love Erasmus too. Erasmus Darwin was v impressive.

I know an Aubrey - it may not be as unusual as you'd like.
