Thanks all. Our surname is Scottish (long, beginning with s) so wondering if that makes a difference to using Cameron or not?? (We're not Scottish)

Depends too how much you mind a name being shortened, Cameron is always shortened here to Cam Or Cammie

Cameron is a bit wishy washy.

It's funny, I think of Cameron as being quite a strong name. I also really like the shortened form of Cam. BUT, I am worried about the David Cameron that going to immediately spring to mind for people? Argh!

Luke - no controversial political connotations and a lovely, classic but still modern sounding name

Sorry to be horrid but each Cameron I have met (5 of them) have been unruly and unpleasant children. So I naturally see the name in a less pleasant light. Sorry!!

Cameron was my first crush in Neighbours years ago. For that reason alone you should choose it.

Luke by a country mile.

Neverknowingly, don't worry,no offence taken - I need people to be honest! Seems Luke might be the favoured option.

Any others got thoughts on Luke or Cameron?

Cameron. I have one and not one person has mentioned David Cameron. I think it'd go better with a Scottish surname too.

TheProsAndConsOfHitchhiking Thu 20-Feb-14 15:27:07

Cameron. I have a Cameron with a very strong scottish surname (we are not scottish) It works well.

Oh and My Cameron is not unruly or unpleasant wink

Cameron. I always think of Luke as being a bit feeble - like luke warm...

If you like Cameron, I really wouldn't worry about an association with David Cameron. David Cameron is a Tory prime minister with loads before him, and no doubt loads after him, assuming the conservatives are elected again. He is but a passing name, albeit a current one which makes it topical.

Cameron. I have one too and have never thought of the David Cameron thing. My Cameron is a lovely young man, I'm very proud of him. grin

Thanks for your replies. Those with Camerons, do you shorten to Cam and/or ever introduce your son as Cam?
