Our surname can also be used as a Christian name (I'm going to use James as an example) and DH has said he doesn't want this baby to have "interchangeable names" as he gets very annoyed by being addressed by his surname by people who don't bother to read properly!
I love the name Thomas, but dh thinks Thomas James runs the risk of being called James by lazy people! He is fairly certain of this, having lived with something similar for 30yrs so not asking for opinions on his stance.... but what boys names options do we have left?! Surnames usually come from the father's name so we're really struggling! The only option we have so far is Aled.
