To go with an odd surname? (Storm).

We liked Ash/er. It doesn't really go.
We quite like Elliott, Rex (too doglike for me, though), Xander, Caleb, Conrad and Kai (Kai Rooney?). I'm aware that not all actually fit our description! Any ideas?

Second Conrad, but am biased!

Sorry I took ages to come back thanks (Sick DD3, the only way to get her to sleep was watching a repeat of Katie Morag. If this baby was a girl, I'd be tempted with that as a name...)

So many names! miffy all those names are names of (adult) member of the family. I love them all, traditional names are very strong and serious and are perfect. Skiving yeah, Inget what you mean! It'd be even worse with Luca!

sorenna love Saul. Solomon is my DBro's name actually! I love love love Saul but DH vetoed it. Apparently his hamster was called Saul and therefore the name is taken. hmm Tbf, I vetoed a name of his for a rather stupid reason from his perspective, so I'm going to try wearing him down on it!

everlong Sebastian and Patrick are nice. Hamish is the name of our rather clumsy poodle and I don't think it would work iyswim. I don't really like Gullivwr (Gulliver's Travels) but I like the sound just not the association in my mind? Thanks! <adds names to list)

Charlotte aside from Tommy, all have been used by close family sad I love Tommy, Thomas, Tomec etc; but DH had a bullying boss called Tommy. I love it though. So a variant of it and see how the nn develops, if we choose it. On short list though!

invicta thanks! I LOVE Callum so much! Aaron and Aled too. And Benjamin! Rufus is the name of DSD's snake and as he'll probably live for another ten years, I don't think we can use it! Fitzwilliam is my boss' surname and althoigh I'm looking for a promotion, it might look a teeny bit arselicky grin Im not a fan of Howard but I'm not sure why tbh. I like Howie.

bailey love the name. DD1 would probably love us to call him Liam he's her One Direction crush but sadly that association has rather put us off! I like Alex and George smile

thanks everyone.

Whatever you do, don't go for Peter. It's Millett's own brand of clothing and footwear grin

How about John, lovely strong name.

I like Rex. I think now that Max is popular Rex slips through without sounding too doggie or too 'King'. It's just similar to Max, but different. I

Tristan Storm

I like someone else's suggestion of Benjamin Storm...

Kikibee Sun 01-Dec-13 19:13:20

Like all your suggestions except Kai. Prefer Zander to Xander, though. My ds is Axel, would go well with Storm too I think. Another recent thread suggested Julius, which I think is strong. I have a crush on the name Roy at the moment, but nobody seems to agree (including dh).

RatHammock Mon 02-Dec-13 13:25:38

Sebastian Storm is the best name ever! Bar none.

RatHammock Mon 02-Dec-13 13:26:35

Call him that then please can he marry my DD and they will be Sebastian & India Storm. grin

MrsT2007 Mon 02-Dec-13 14:02:57

Edward, with Ned as a nickname. Ned or Ed Storm sounds cool

Ned Storm = amaaaaazing!

shoobidoo Tue 03-Dec-13 14:05:12

To my ears Rex Storm sounds like Wreck Storm - I don't like the s's running into each other.

Nor do I really like Seb Storm.

But I think these all sound fantastic
