Baby boy no.3

We had baby boy no.3 yesterday and he's nameless.

The only name we can agree on is Hamish. Feel like it's a bit 'out there' when our other 2 are in the top 30. Also concerned DS3 will feel lumbered with an unusual name.

Any thoughts!?

I like it.

Also Seamus.

Go for Hamish then. Quite cute!

Also like Fergus, Theo, Rufus. smilesmile

Congrats!

What are your other boys called?

If you like it & it suits him then go for it! I think it's sweet.��

I like it.

I like it. Go for it and congratulations!

Not keen on Hamish but all that matters is you like it!

Of those others suggested so far I like Seamus (love Shay), Rufus and Theo.

Would be interesting to know what your other DC are called.

Congratulations!

Depends where you live too. Here in Scotland,Hamish, isn't "out there" at all!

Its the Scottish version of James or the vocative of the Gaelic Seamus - so all related.. You could put James on the BC and still call him Hamish...

Nice.

Thanks!

We are in London but my side of the family is entirely Scottish. Just a bit wary about looking like a plastic Jock (?!) or try hard.

James and Hamish are both family names but we have reasons for not using James.

Hamish is a fine name.

I do love Shay though. If only dh had agreed ...

Theonlyoneiknow Sat 29-Mar-14 20:55:27

What about Magnus?

Surf25 Sat 29-Mar-14 21:00:58

I don't think it's try hard, especially not if your family are Scottish..
What about Magnus or Fergus? Callan or Torren? Struan?
If you love it, go for Hamish!

dementedma Sat 29-Mar-14 21:03:58

Angus?

DomesticGoddess31 Sat 29-Mar-14 21:16:26

I have a brother Hamish and think its an awesome name. Go for it!

zoemaguire Sat 29-Mar-14 21:16:42

I love it!

ExitPursuedByABear Sat 29-Mar-14 21:22:11

Do it

scarletforya Sat 29-Mar-14 21:24:04

Yes. Great name!

hoobypickypicky Sat 29-Mar-14 21:26:31

That's really creepy. I read your first sentence and said to myself "Hamish!".

Then I read on. smile

You've got to name him Hamish now, it's meant to be! grin

Congratulations on your new baby boy! flowers.

I think Hamish is an excellent name, especially if you are Scottish.
