Hi everyone! We need your help! We have DD Elizabeth Jane. We cannot find a boys name we like! We like Classic and Timeless names but are trying to avoid popular ones. Here is our list so far...
Lawrence
James
Clark
William
Christopher
Alistair

Thanks! X

I would avoid William if you don't want too popular. Probably James too.

Laurence will be 'with a W', don't know if that would bother you or not.

Elizabeth and Nicholas, Elizabeth and Dominic.

Like Laurence and Alistair. Both were on our lists. How about Conrad?

Laurence is my favourite from your list, nn Enzo, fab!!

Love Christopher and Alistair. Or how about Quentin or Dominic?

Laurence is the female version of Laurent, so I would name a boy Lawrence.

Lawrence is my fave out of those.

I'm an Elizabeth Jane! My brother is James William John. smile

William is my favourite.

I think Christopher fits your brief best from your list.

I would also suggest Michael and Andrew.

I know a number of Williams and Jameses, under 5. I don't know any Alistair's in that age bracket.

Your list looks a lot like ours did! Funnily enough DH also loves Elizabeth (Lizzie) if we were to have a girl. We went with Alistair and v pleased with it, only had positive comments (except older men who ask if we're Scottish - we're not) and love Ally as a nickname. We also considered Peter, Douglas and Hugh if that helps at all!

Elizabeth and Arthur
Elizabeth and Joseph

Alan
Duncan
Mark

Love Alistair and Lawrence (though I'd spell them Alasdair and Laurence) - and the suggestion of Gregor.

Twinklebells Mon 15-Dec-14 16:11:58

Mark or Jonathan.

Elizabeth and Matthew?

I like Alistair and Christopher best from your list.

myotherusernameisbetter Mon 15-Dec-14 18:05:55

We have an Alister and Alastair in our family so there are loads of spellings - DH says using a D is "wet" though...

cloggal Mon 15-Dec-14 18:09:51

Maybe is, but it's the traditional Gaelic spelling so it'll stick wink.

Matthew is a good suggestion.

myotherusernameisbetter Mon 15-Dec-14 20:51:10

Ach, he's a Borders man so has a warped view of the world - we had to compromise on my younger sons' name - I got the name and he got the spelling - he went for a Gaelic spelling and said it was the Scottish one but I think it's ended up Irish - should have stuck to my guns. smile

myotherusernameisbetter Mon 15-Dec-14 20:52:16

Actually if I'd stuck to my original guns we would have Struan and Gregor...
