My son is Otis, don't know the gender of 'the next one' but if it's a boy...'Ivor'?
Do you know of any baby Ivors? Have any similar suggestions?

P.S I've read all about the 'I've a...' jokes, kids can turn most names into a bad joke'

I like Otis and Ivor. There's also Ivo, Ives or Ivan.

I like Ivor, Ivan or Ivo. They were on my "list" :-)

I know a couple of Ifors - it's reasonably popular in Wales. The 'I' is short and the 'f' is pronounced with a 'v' sound, 'ih-vor.'

I don't think I know of any recent. One adult Ivor. I think it's ok Second suggestion of Ivan.

Ivor the Engine springs to mind for me, though this is an outdated reference now.

Ivor (Ifor- Were Welsh) is top of our baby list. I've only met one Ivor in real life and I think it's a lovely name. DS2 is due any day now.

Oh I bet that lift has a good engine!

I just got in there with that.

But I like the two together. Both quirky. Although, Otis is less quirky. It's surprising how many are out there now.

I like both names. Together they sound Easter European to me?

Ivor the Engine! Used to love that show.

I love Ivor and it was on our list if DC2 was a boy. It goes nicely with Otis as well.

A friend of mine just named DS2 Ivor. I'm guessing it is after Ivor Cutler as she & hubby are big fans.
