We are due out little boy in August and the moment we left the hospital after our scan we started brainstorming names.
We want something strong, striking and a little unusual.
We also love our rock music so naturally we are thinking about pinching a name or two from rock royalty for our list.
Any ideas? grin

Ohh this is fun! Dont know who you consider to be rock and roll royalty so loosely interpretted it. I probably be thinking of more all day.

There are also names like Ramon and Rudy which have rnr connotations, plus lots of rockers have pretty lame names when you think about it so I left those out (Peter, Roger, Michael etc
