Soooo hubs is English, I'm Scottish, and we need a boys name. I've been flicking through MN now for weeks, but it's the same names over and over... So here's a challenge for you ladies.
Give me your best names based on the following criteria.... I know you can do it. I believe in you!
1 - I'm Scottish, hubs is English, I genuinely don't like traditional English boys names like Harry, Olly etc, he hates overly masculine Scottish names such as Magnus, Fergus (I love Torrin for instance, he thinks it sounds like something you get cream for)
2 - we both want something that's a little unusual but not totally out there.... Names like fox, hunter etc are lovely but too much for a wee boy to live up to in our opinion.
3 - no quirky spellings, it makes our teeth itch
4 - we like the following but they've been ruled out of a variety of reasons; Lachlan, Ethan, Logan, Joshua,
5 - our surname rhymes with.... Erm... Tellers, so names with a prominent L Feel are out... For fear of sounding like Rhianna. Also, no middle names, we won't use em.
6 - massively eloquent names such as Tarquin, Farquhar are way out of our comfort zone
7 - if it's been on MN recently, we've seen it and discounted it!

Your challenge is on..... Help us!

Douglas? Although guess that's a prominent L.
Arran? Bit Scottish, bit English.
