So we had our 20 week scan today and according to the scanner (what do you call the people who do the scans, btw?): "we can never be a hundred percent certain, but I'd be surprised if those little boy bits fell off!", so it seems fairly likely we're having a boy.
This has thrown me a bit, because while there are loads of girls names I love, there aren't many boys names I feel strongly about, though there are plenty I quite like.
On the short list so far are:
Samuel Thomas Joshua
All names I quite like, but don't love, and I'm aware they're all very popular which puts me off a bit - though his big sister is called Eve, so hardly unique either!
I also like Henry, Gilbert, Nathaniel and Leo, but DH has vetoed them all.
Any comments or suggestions please? We had such a beautiful name picked out for a DD2, so I'm a bit sad we won't get to use it (will probably stop at two).
Thanks everyone. Lots of lovely names mentioned that I quite like - and lots that we can't use for family reasons/similarity to surname, etc - but still nothing that I really love. I wonder if maybe that just doesn't exist me in the world of boys names!
Thomas is one of my favourites but I really like Tommy so would definitely shorten to that. I also like Joshua/Josh. Never been a fan of Samuel.. I know it's a silly reason but I have always known so many female Sam's so I just think of Sam as more of a girls' name now! Alexander is another fave of mine. Tristan/Christian?
