Dont know if having boy or girl but come up with a few ideas for boys names, looking for ideas of other names both boy and girl that i may like based on these:


Long surname so prefer shorter first name.

Dario is current favourite but dont know if it would be odd to use this without any italian family connections.

Dario: okay Im pretty young but this just reminds me of the doctor mario video games. Dr Mario....Dario. get it.

Milo: surprisingly Im okay with this one, Id normally suggest against it as it sounds quite childish but I know a Milo IRL who is very nice

Dexter: dexter's laboratory

Isaac: Okay

Liam: limp, weak name

Milo reminds me of the tweenie character.

Dexter is a fab, strong name

I'm not keen on the other names, sorry.

Isaac is my favourite, an underused classic.

Dario is awful, sorry, just sounds really cheesy. Maybe I'm thinking of the 90s DJ Dario G?!
Milo is nice but I thought of the Tweenies too.
Dexter also reminded me of the serial killer TV show, plus I think it's getting more popular (which may cancel out the TV show association).

Liam is solid and traditional but I find it odd when used with non-Irish surnames.

I really like Isaac.

Liam, Milo and Dexter are ok.

I really don't like Dario though, it makes me think of someone 'slimy' and arrogant (sorry to any Darios).

Dexter it me is a pets name.
Milo is a malted drinks name.
Darin don't like it.
Love Isaac and Liam

Bugsylugs Sun 25-Jan-15 08:27:21

Sorry Dario

Crownjewel Sun 25-Jan-15 08:39:33

Not keen on Dario, sorry.

Darin on the other Love it!

LynetteScavo Sun 25-Jan-15 08:43:39

Don't like Dario or Liam

Milo is lovely smile

noreplacementsfound Sun 25-Jan-15 09:05:22

Isaac smile

Thank you all - I may have a rethink! I'm totally put off the name after the DJ Dario G comment...cant shake that association now!
DH still really keen on Isaac. I'm a fan of Liam, we are Scottish/Irish so fairly traditional.

How about Darius? I love that.
