So unfortunately we found out after our 20 weeks scan that our little boy has a heart abnormality. I won't go into details but it will mean open heart surgery within days of being born.

We really want to give him a strong, non ridiculous name as he will need to be a little fighter. smile

Suggestions appreciated. We only have Max on our list so far.

Max has been on our list.

We also like Sam

Sorry your scan was worrying, I hope everything goes as smoothly.

My son was born at 24 weeks he is called Alexander for Alexander the Great middle name Thor figured he could use the strength smile
Also like, Alfred (again the great) lorcan, Arthur. Edward. Atticus.

Incidentally my ds1 ŵas born at 26 weeks and needed Heart surgery please feel free to pm me if you want.

Louis means warrior.
I'm sure you've heard lots of similar things in real life but my friend's baby girl had heart surgery in her first few days. She's one now and doing really really well.
All the best.

Leo - "Lion".

Sending very many good wishes his way - hope all goes well and you'll be posting photos of his safe arrival/successful surgery on here in 20-odd weeks time.
