DC2 is due in a few weeks but we don't know the gender. DD1 is Rosa. We like names of the 'classic but underused' variety and are really struggling to come up with options for a boy (my suggestions may not exactly be 'underused' but they give an idea of our taste). Any suggestions gratefully received!

I like Louis or how about Quentin, Dominic or Magnus?

Love Leo and Isaac.

Really like Louis.

Lucas?

Rosa is lovely smile

I like Eli best. Really like Isaac.

I know two boys called Eli, one aged 5 and one aged 16. The older one hated his name because people always said he had a girl's name, and he found that hard to deal with.

From your list, I prefer Leo or Isaac.

Love Eli. I know a lovely 11 year boy called Eli

Aha! You clearly like boys names with I,L and E.

Our DS would have been Rosa if a girl, so clearly we have similar taste in names.

Our DS is actually Elliot, which has I, L and E.

Ergo, therefore, name him Elliot!

Or, you know, don't if you don't want to!

Eelyn?

Rosa is lovely!

Edmund?
Fintan?
Lachlan?
Michael? (Not unusual, I admit, but I haven't met a baby Michael in years!)

I like Isaac and it means laughter (I think), which is lovely.

I like Eli and Louis, though not sure Eli classes as under used as Elijah is quite popular, and I think Louis & Louie are too.

Oh they are all to my taste too though perhaps I would prefer Leon to Leo. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these names. I'm not really helpful. Eli would be my favourite but it depends how the 't' is pronounced.

Another favourite of mine is Saul which is in a similar vein?

I think Isaac goes really well with Rosa. So does Leo. Both echo sounds in 'Rosa' (Z and O) but they are different overall.

I also like Louis from your list, and
Samuel (Sam)
Benjamin (Ben)
Henry
Joseph
Owen
Clement
Conrad
Theodore
Thaddeus

I like Isaac most. It seem better than any other names.

UriGeller Fri 28-Mar-14 10:24:30

Isaac is cute, and Ike is a great nickname.

Felix?

Leo, Isaac and Eli were all on my shortlist along with Alistair, Patrick and Edward.

Eli.
Lovely name.

LePetitPont Fri 28-Mar-14 21:00:37

That's a great list! 3/4 are on our boy shortlist too. Well until we realised Isaac sounded shocking with our surname. Eli is my least favourite.

HenriettaPie Fri 28-Mar-14 21:03:23

All were on my short list, along with Elliott and Alfie, before Alfie got mega popular!

FobblyWoof Fri 28-Mar-14 21:05:54

Isaac <biased> grin

I also really like Eli. I think they all go with. Rosa really well, if that's a factor for you

Eli, Eli, Eli!!!

Goes lovely with Rosa smile
