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.

Louis.... Think it means warrior

Sorry to hear about your little one. You could name him Stephen after Stephen Sutton. Or Andrew means strong.

Remo means 'the strong one'
Ethan means strong
Leo 'brave as a lion'
Finlay means 'fair warrior'

I know a child named Oakley, whose parents chose his name for very similar reasons to you. They wanted something strong and solid, and he has absolutely grown into his name.

I hope all goes well for you and your LO.

Leo is great.

There is a Turkish name, Yashar, which means life. I can't think of an English equivalent, but is that the kind of sentiment?

Nicholas means "the victor". Any good?

SanityClause Sat 24-Jan-15 09:25:25

Christian, after Dr Christiaan Barnard?

If you're Welsh...
Llewelyn. Often shortened to Llew which means Lion.

Sending positive and healing vibes to you and your little fighter.

Feargus - variation on fighter/strong man.

Leo means lion
Finley fair haired soldier
Theo. Gift from god

Sorry posted too soon

Egon - young fighter I believe

Nathan isn't a fighters name but means gift from god.

Jackieharris Sat 24-Jan-15 09:37:05

Mark/c/us come from Mars the Roman god of war
Joshua means 'the Lord saves'
Clark or Kent?

HexBramble Sat 24-Jan-15 10:00:37

Leo - fabulous.
The Ll letter for Llew is a bit of a mouth twister for non welsh speakers (wasn't being unnecessarily separatist).

Sophronia Sat 24-Jan-15 11:14:52

Leonard - means 'brave lion'

Cliffdiver Sat 24-Jan-15 11:17:35

Another vote for Leonard / Leo.

I hope everything goes well with his surgery flowers.

Austin? comes from Augustus meaning Great etc

FarelyKnuts Sat 24-Jan-15 11:54:08

Cillian/Killian? It means battle

bubalou Sat 24-Jan-15 12:49:08

Alexander, Andrew and Alistair all have similar defender/fighter meanings I think.
