Or any other brother for Miles suggestion?
Our 2nd baby is due in April. They will be a little brother or sister for Miles. We are sorted for a girl's name (same as if Miles had been a girl) but can't decide for a boy!
Thank you!

Rory by a country mile.

Definitely Rory!

Guy. Rory is hard to say.

Guy. It's a classy name. It's much cooler and suitable for a male throughout all the ages. Rory is like Toby to me: cute when they're kids but a WEAK name for a man.

They are both lovely but Guy goes with Miles better than Rory imo.

Definitely not Guy. That guy (etc.)

Rhuaridh, rather than Rory.

PrimalLass Sat 10-Jan-15 10:55:27

Rhuridh is another spelling. The first one should not have had the h.

Rory smile (Rhuridh???)

Guy every time (I am biased my Guy is adult now).

Guy is easy to say and is an old name. Rory could go through a Worwy phase with his peers and could be unfortunate if he is given to tears and tantrums. On the other hand Roary the Lion is cute smile

Rory! (Cos I am a doctor who fan)

Rory. I know lots of adult Rorys so don't see it as a babyish name.

Re. the pronunciation, one of the Rorys I know goes out with a Vietnamese girl whose parents struggle with the Rs and call him Lolly. No biggie really.

Guy reminds me of Guy of Gisborne. And he was a meanie.

Rory. But only because I've only ever known one Guy and he was an arsehole!

Love Rory
Hate Guy, it's a bit poncey IMO!
