It's Zephyr

I know it's a bit marmite but I don't care.
We Love it.
It's a 'real' name,it works with sibling names,gives cool nn's Zeph or Zephy...fits all our criteria grin

So,Middle names for Zephyr please!

I love it. How about Caleb, Jackson, Jeramiah?

MikeLitorisBites Sun 03-Nov-13 14:36:10

Any family names?

What was the one you really wanted but couldn't have? Does that go?

You'll get loads of people coming on saying to give a really boring name as a middle one so he will be able to use that when he is a top judge.

Lottiedoubtie Sun 03-Nov-13 14:36:13

I like it smile only known one and he was a fab kid.

I think it would go with almost anything else tbh, what sorts of names do you like? Are other names in the family traditional or alternative?

ShowOfBloodyStumps Sun 03-Nov-13 14:36:16

Oh I know you don't want opinions but I flipping love it.

If you don't have a middle name which means something to you, then I'd go with something short and punchy (Zephyr Frank or Zephyr Bram for example) or something much longer (Zephyr Raphael or Zephyr Erasmus for example). Nobody you want to honour, no special meaning you'd like to include?

Well....we haven't done the family name thing for the others as there are SO many traditions we couldn't do them all,and if we did one without the other then....well you get the jist...

Baby's due at the beginning of December so perhaps a wintery theme (I'm atheist though so not Christmasy)

The other DC are Skye Matilda Rose and Arlo Phoenix

Discarded but still liked names for this one are Rufus,Caspar and Asa....I don't think any really 'go' as a MN but it gives you an idea of taste...

(I'm really glad you guys like it btw grin )

One syllable, deffo.

TinyDynamite Sun 03-Nov-13 14:51:52

I'm with RunBike - my first thought reading your post was also James.

Zephyr James is a truly cool name.

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 14:55:48


These are family names with some meaning that we could potentially use...

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 14:56:57

I'm a bit meh about James,but I do like the punchyness of it...

Bowlersarm Sun 03-Nov-13 15:02:00

I like Zephyr.

I don't think you should go with a standard name like James as a middle name. It looks like you weren't confident enough in Zephyr. So a name that is also uncommon like Phoenix that you have used already.

ItsWarmerInTheSouth Sun 03-Nov-13 15:05:08

Zephyr Dax?
Zephyr Rex?
Zephyr Zane?

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 15:07:39

Ooh! Those are good Warmer I like Showys suggestions too!

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 15:08:32

George is part of our surname so that's out grin
Frank is kinda cool...

BaronessBomburst Sun 03-Nov-13 15:08:51

Ford? grin

ShowOfBloodyStumps Sun 03-Nov-13 15:09:23

My family names are Frederick, Alfred, Albert and Josiah, so v similar. We considered Josiah actually.

I think we've talked names before as I have similar taste to you (we considered Caspar, Arlo and Asa and two of dd's three names you've used for your dd). I like Abraham (Bram), Hector, Ivo, Rafferty, Raphael, Django, Bodhi, Amos, Emrys, Cassius and many others but not sure any of them go with Zephyr really.

I like the idea of a winter themed middle name (I know somebody with the middle name Winter actually). Caspar fits this (coming from Gaspar) or you could go with Melchior or Balthazar!

AbiRoad Sun 03-Nov-13 15:09:33

Going with 1 syllable
Max ( which I think goes well)

I think milo goes ot theo or other name ending in o

Offcolour Sun 03-Nov-13 15:09:47

Wintry names... Zephyr Rowan, Zephyr Robin, Zephyr Jack (for Jack Frost).

I knew a lovely Zephyr, nn Zef. He's gorgeous.

BikeRunSki Sun 03-Nov-13 15:11:24

Zephyr Frost
Or, because he is your third Zephyr Trio?

(I loved Hebe from your potential girls names a long time ago)

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 15:13:46

show yes we do have very similar taste...I like all of those suggestions but I'm not sure any go with Zephyr....

Off I think Robin and Rowan arelovely!

Offcolour Sun 03-Nov-13 15:15:21

smile they go quite nicely d

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 03-Nov-13 15:15:39

Frost is cool


But seriously,I like it grin

(I think Hebe might make it in as a 2nd MN for Flora,DP is being rather insistent about it...)
