We've just had our favourite boys name used by another family member.

Please can you help us find a similar name or suggest another name you think we may like.

Thank you.

Ps: we may still use Oliver.

Oscar? Elliott? They were on my list.

Although I'm a firm believer that no one 'owns' a name, you should use the one that you love, and that suits your baby grin

I like Oliver too, so maybe we have similar taste. My list also includes

Louis
Henry
Felix
Thomas
Hugo
(And Ezra as a wild card)

I'm 99% decided on Hugo Oliver smile

Thank you everyone.

We've added Reuben to the list smile I also like Thomas, Harry, Henry and Samuel but these have also been used by either family or friends!

I really like Daniel but dh doesn't.

What do you think of Fraser? This is becoming a favourite.

Fraser is a great name (biased.)

My BIL is Fraser and he likes his name.

Here's our 'boy list' we have the same issue, with both William and Oliver having been hijacked by those close by (how inconsiderate grin) so we've had to go a little further 'out there'

Magnus
Hugo
Julius
Horatio (!)
Sebastian
Gerard
Caspian
Errol
Giles
Archibald

Writing them down, some of them look a little pretentious, but my brother has seven (yes, SEVEN!) children, each with three names, so our choices are somewhat limited!
Also we have not long had Ds1- we're packing them in quickly, and have given him what we consider to be 'the best name ever' so anything else just seems a little... second best!

Oliver is v v popular (number one name in 2008 when we had ours wink) so I second using it if you like it! I love Henry too. Harry is a nickname for Henry too so you can use either if you pick Henry. (And I like Jacob. For what it's worth...)

Jasper, if it doesn't mean wasp to you.
