I can't believe I finally get to post on this board
Not due until September so we have a bit of time. We are set on our girl's name (Sylvie) but struggling to find a boy's name we love as much.
I am quite keen on Patrick - dh likes it but isn't 100 % sure. We love Gabriel, but someone in the family has already used it. Also like Clement and Remy. I love Ambrose, but I think maybe in theory rather than for a baby.
I quite like the nicknames Jem and Gil, but not so sure about any of the longer versions. I also like Walter but dh doesn't.
None of them are standing out yet. I think I like names that are well-known and fairly traditional, but not very common and with a tendancy towards flowery/poetic (but not too much). Any more suggestions?!
Thanks for the suggestions! I really like Elliot and Theodore, so they have gone on the list. Also like Caspar and Jasper although dh isn't keen I think I'm quite inconsistent in my tastes as some of the others I don't like so much, although they're exactly what I asked for!Dh has suggested Seamus this morning, which I love.
I love Gabriel too Toffee, I think that's what is making it so hard as we can't use it, so I'm trying to find something I love as much!
