Maybe teamed up eith a traditional name like aurther but not 'half a' if you get what I mean

Is the traditional name 'Arthur'? My first impression is that it's a very English name to combine with very American-sounding names like Hunter or Forest.

Would Wolf be pronounced like the animal, or 'Vulf', short for Wolfgang?

They're all very outdoorsy, macho, pioneer-type names, which I do feel is potentially problematic in constructing a certain idea of a child - supposing little Wolf is a timid type, or Winter feels the cold even indoors, and Forest loathes the fresh air, and us never happier than hunched over his Playstation? If Hunter is a committed vegan and hunt sab?

Wolf as in the animal
Yep get the fact they might not be outdoorsy therefore combined with trad name might help this. Was gokng for nature names as opposed to american

I don't like any of them at all, sorry.

I like River but not keen on the rest.

Albus River

Nature-ish names which I think are much nicer:

Rowan
Asher
Dale
Glen

How are you pronouncing aurther? I have never seen that variation, looks like a misspelling tbh. I like Hunter James

Arthur is nice, if you spell it correctly. Arthur River works quite well.

HolyTerror Tue 23-Dec-14 10:49:52

You're misspelling Arthur, OP.

Forest (sometimes spelled Forrest) and Hunter sound very US to me. Henry Forest is the nicest of your new list.

Albus will be forever a beardie wizard.

Yep I meant Arthur and would learn to spell it I am dyslexic so takes a while

Arthur (that spelling) splendid as a first name; all the rest excellent as middle names, but, as others have said, a potential burden/embarassment to a child or adult.

Why not have (say) Arthur as first name and then one or two of your list as middle name(s)? You can call him by one of those, but he would also have the option of using a less 'labelling' first name if he preferred.

Yep thats exactly what I was thinking
Will make sure I can definitely spell it first OH will check spellings lol

I've seen Hunter used as a first name up here (Scotland) as surnames used as first names are quite often (though Campbell, Cameron, Innes, Murray, Findlay etc more common.) I don't mind it, but I am not keen on the rest. Agree it should be paired with a more conventional name to give your DS the option of using that if he chooses to later on in life.

What about an animal middle name, like 'Fox'?
