Hugo or Alistair. James is too common.

All nice, Hugo James for me! smile

Thanks all - I've always liked Hugo but have had some negative feedback (sounds try hard, type of thing) and DH likes Alistair. So do I but not sure about Ali/Al as inevitable short forms. Lastly James is a lovely "safe" choice but very popular. Argh...

Oohh I like Hugo grin

Alistair! Ds1 was this for two days, and then we switched to Alexander for two days, to see which we liked best. Alexander stuck, but I do have a soft spot for Alistair too.

I'm going to be biased here as my DH is called Alistair smile a few of his friends call him Ali, this makes me cringe so I understand why you're not sure. It just doesn't suit him. 90% of people use his full name though.

James - love
Hugo- ok
Alistair- dislike

James and Hugo - lovely names. Both were on my list (dh vetoed Hugo sad) but we ended up with a dd anyway.

James.

I have one. I'm in Scotland where it's always in the top 10 and there's meant to be loads but we don't actually know any other child James'.

I can't say Alistair without saying it with a dreadful 'posh' Scottish accent so I'd choose Hugo as my second favourite.

James.

Hugo...love love love it!

Alasdair is the Gaelic for Alexander. It's good name; strong and substantial. (Alistair is an Anglicised spelling; the Gaelic avoids the nickname 'Ali', if that ,matters to you.) James is classic - short, elegant. Hugo is nice, too.

Whichever you choose among the three will be fine.

Hugo with James as a middle name grin

Theonlyoneiknow Tue 25-Feb-14 21:09:46

I like it spelt Alasdair as above. Not keen on the nn though which is unfortunately inevitable!
