Any ideas? I tend to prefer traditional names, but not old fashioned! Found out yesterday we're having a boy, but am completely stumped!

Do you want something as popular as Amelia? Is there a cultural aspect?

ameliarose2012 Sat 03-Jan-15 10:53:49

No, I never wanted a popular name for DD. I've liked amelia since I was a child (when it was definitely unpopular!), and always thought I wanted to call my daughter that. It was just bad luck that it had a surge in popularity in the year she was finally born sad I actually considered calling her something else instead! I like Victorian names. Can't do james as she has a cousin called that already.

Oh, and no one syllable names- we have a surname with only one syllable and it just sounds weird!

moxon Sat 03-Jan-15 10:57:10

These things happen...
How about Patrick or Leonard? Not popular at the moment, quite traditional but not posh, with lots of nickname possibilities?

A good list of Victorian names here: www.britishbabynames.com/blog/2011/05/victorian-darlings.html

Amelia and Edward sounds great.

If it helps I know an Amelia whose brothers are Dion and Bryce.

I have an Amelia. Like you op I have loved the name ever since I was a little girl but unfortunately a year or so after she was born it grew in popularity. I don't actually know any other Amelia's though so it's been fine for us.

Anyway I'm due dc2 any day now and on my boys list are:

Max (although that won't work for you)
Arthur
Albert
Henry

I quite like Edward... I think! This baby naming business is harder than I thought! There's quite a lot of nicknames that I like, but don't like the idea of nicknames as given names iyswim. So I like Alfie for example, but don't like Alfred!

Amelia and Jonathan
Amelia and Marcus
