Help! Can't decide on boy's name and only 2 weeks to go...

Still trying to decide on a name for DS due in less than 2 weeks, by this time with DD we had a shortlist of about 3 (which we then threw out in favour of something completely different at the moment she was born!)

We are currently between addresses and totally disorganised and unprepared for his arrival in most other aspects so the name is one small thing (haha) I had hoped to have sorted by now! The longlist is... (both mine and DH's choices although we can't agree!)

Donovan
Cormac
Luther
Julian
Sebastian
Cassius
Aldous
Jefferson
Jude
Orson
Walter
Wilbur
Magnus

Middle names are going to be something solid + my slightly unusual maiden name and surname begins with B.

Suggestions / shortlists welcomed with open arms! Thanks

Wilbur is fabulous! Also like Jude and Walter from your list. Some of the others sound too much like surnames for my liking (Jefferson, Donovan, Cormac).

I like Jude and Sebastian the most from your list but they are probably the most popular. I also like Cormac, Cassius and Orson but aren't too keen on the rest.

Sophronia Sun 25-Jan-15 18:10:12

I like Walter, Wilbur and Magnus the best.

Cormac isn't a surname.

I like Jude, Cormac, Cassius and Magnus best from your list.

Brilliant list. Favourites are Wilbur and Cassius. Very cool.

Aldous
Orson
Magnus
Cormac

The only ones I'm not especially keen on are Wilbur and Luther.

MumsyFoxy Mon 26-Jan-15 00:17:47

I only like Jude and Wilbur out of that list.

fizzycolagurlie Mon 26-Jan-15 01:39:08

I don't know if you need a name before he is born, do you? I wish we'd waited to set eyes on our first DC before we'd stuck on a name, because I kept looking at his face in the weeks after he was born and the name didn't seem to fit, for the longest time. ...But it does now (though i still think he looks more like a William, than his actual name, for some reason).

shoobidoo Mon 26-Jan-15 06:39:08

Great list of names! Classic, cool and not overused. I like them all.

Cliffdiver Mon 26-Jan-15 06:47:13

ourglass Mon 26-Jan-15 10:32:22

You don't have decide now though. My second child wasn't named until she was about a week old.

Thanks everyone, thought I was going to get flamed for some of those! Still awaiting his arrival and keep adding names to the list!

Any thoughts on...
Quentin

I like walter, wilbur and Magnus the best. Also like Cassius, but wouldn't have the guts to use it myself!

shoobidoo Mon 02-Feb-15 11:40:34

All great names but my favourites are Magnus and Quentin! Love them both.
