Hi all, have a boys shortlist on the go, lovely little dark haired boy now 10 days old - scrumptious! He is our second boy and one of 5... we already have: Meg, Bess, Emma and Rafe, so name needs to be a good 'un and also fit with with his siblings.

We don't like too traditional (ie Christopher) or too 'now' (ie Arlo) I like a slightly old fashioned literary feel, dh not so much...

Alexander will be our middle name.

So far we both like:

Joshua Alexander

Laurie Alexander

and slightly off the wall but both drawn to it....

Bruno Alexander

Thanks for your opinions and suggestions!

I think Laurie fits best although it isn't really my kind of name iykwim

Joshua Alexander.

I really don't like Laurie and think it would be a difficult one for a great many boys to carry.

Bruno is my favourite name ever. I suggest it on every thread and everyone bloody ignores me. Cheek.

I hereby decree that your scrumptious son is called Bruno.

Congratulations on the new arrival flowers

Bruno is awesome! Think it sounds great with your other names too!

Your children have lovely names and I think Bruno is the best from your selection.

Laurie fits best with the siblings, but Bruno Alexander is a good name.

I know a Bruno, and also recommend Bruno Alexander as a brilliant combo!

thanks everyone! Mumsnet has spoken!!

Aw, I wanted to add that it is so nice when this sort of thing happens, and the OP actually feels we helped with confirming a name, and us in the peanut gallery feel we helped to make a new person. smile

I think Laurie fits best with your other children's names. But I prefer Joshua, although both are good names. Not so keen on Bruno.
Congratulations on your baby boys birth grin
