A bit pregnant with DC 3. DC 2 was a bit and I still like his unused girl name, but really stuck if it's another boy!

I like the following and either DH doesn't, or I know someone with young DC with the name so wouldn't use it. What else might I like? Thanks.

Murray
Duncan
Elliott
Nathan
Joseph
Fraser
Jacob

DC2 was a boy...clearly.

Elliot was on my boys list, the only other name i had on there was Oscar which now seems very popular

iwasabrooker Tue 28-Oct-14 07:04:44

Yes, I know a little Oscar too. smile

I did think that was likely!

thanks all.

Kinda quite like Conrad somehow, but not sure I could pull it off. hmm.

Dd might have been Aidan or ciaran if she had been a boy. I also like Liam Owen/eoin, Raymond, huw, Luke, Noah, rowan and nathan

iwasabrooker Tue 28-Oct-14 20:14:03

I like Luke and Lucas, but know some of those too.

Someone on another thread was thinking of using Rafferty which I rather like.

DS is Duncan, the others on our short list were Andrew (nn Drew) James (top 10 popularity) and some more out there option like Angus (didn't think we could pull it off). Bruce was also considered (FILs name, so complicated to not use DF name too and that gave a footballers name blush)

Would love to know if you know another baby Dunc smile

I don't actually know a wee Duncan.

It was considered last time... I know a few adult Duncans which put me off more!

I really like Murray too, but would be just too weird for me knowing someone with a wee one.

I spotted Douglas on the other thread. Might add that to possibilities.

I really LOVE Bruce for a boy. I wanted it for DC3 who turned out to be a girl. Dh kept saying "Moi names Bruce- Why trust a shark?Right?" from Nemo and it really pissed me off.
