Hi everyone! I need your help with boys names! I am desperate! I want a classic boys name like James or Matthew but one that isn't so popular!
The only one I have found is Carson and DH is not a fan sad
Brother to an Elizabeth Jane, he needs a hardy classic name but his mummy is very uninspired sad

Please please help us smile

Thanks x

My DS2 is Leo - a classic name but not too common (though I think it's getting quite popular).

Peter is lovely and criminally underused these days.
I love John too.

I love Matthew and never hear it used on little ones for what it's worth!

Gregory,Dominic,Alexander and Max was our shortlist for boys with Hugo as a middle name.

Elisabeths I know have siblings named Lewis,William,Jonathan and Michael.

I love Matthew and it is not over-used around here.
