Really struggling to name ds2
What do you think of these? Any you prefer or really dislike? Ds1 is F inlay surname begins with A (5letters ).


Possibly John as mn but don't like it with Kai or Rory think they need a longer mn.

Any other suggestions welcome.

I love William and Rory.

Quite like Kai.

Dislike Reuben and Lewis.

How about;

I like Lewis and Reuben.

DessieLou Sun 17-Aug-14 20:31:46

Rory, definately!

Mumof3xox Sun 17-Aug-14 20:32:51

Love Rory

Sophronia Sun 17-Aug-14 20:35:06

I like William and Reuben.

DramaAlpaca Sun 17-Aug-14 20:35:49

Rory and Lewis both go really well with your other DS's name.

I think John would be perfect as a middle name for either of them.

I really like Rory and quite like William.

I dislike the others particularly Kai.

SweetPeaPods Sun 17-Aug-14 21:58:33

Interesting lots of mixed opinion. Why do I find this so difficult ?!

Squirm Sun 17-Aug-14 22:06:14

Rory goes best with your DS's name. I also like William.

Mrsjinglejangle Sun 17-Aug-14 22:07:45

William is the nicest by far especially with Bill as nn
Rory is ok
Dislike the rest

Mrsjinglejangle Sun 17-Aug-14 22:09:06

Sorry missed Lewis altogether when first reading your post that's ok too probably goes best with your ds1 name

CountBapula Sun 17-Aug-14 22:12:12

My friend's DS2 has the same name as your DS1. Her other DS is called Max.

I like all your suggestions except Kai and Lewis.

Rory is lovely. Lewis is nice but overused ( i have one and it's all I ever hear)
I really dislike Kai. It's an alsatian's name in my opinion. Sorry.
Your son's name is lovely and Rory would compliment it.

Like William and Rory from your list (but I really like traditional names). Kai means food in Maori here in NZ, so just reminds me of that, sorry!

Kai is hideous. The Rooneys chose it. Think that would be enough to downgrade even a decent name.
The others are fine.

SweetPeaPods Mon 18-Aug-14 08:53:19

Didn't realise the Rooneys have a Kai.
Like Rory but really not sure on mn not sure John is long enough?

Now also considering Ruairi.
I have also liked it but think it must be growing on DH
