DH and I are expecting 1st baby (a boy). I'm 28 weeks so got time still but starting to panic that we do not agree on any names that we both love! However we've come up with a 'compromise' list. I feel quite neutral about some of them so honest opinions on these please....

Only name I like from your list is Dexter. Although my dd said she liked Grayson the other day. Not to my taste though
I always think of Cody to be a pretty girl's name. It could be because the first ever Cody I ever heard of, albeit fictitious was Cody from neighbours. (A girl)
Don't like Logan. It's starting to become like Harry.
They're everywhere as are Riellys.
But this is just my opinion. Certainly not a fact.

I love Dexter

Sorry...not so keen on the other names but it's such a personal thing... I think as long as you have a shortlist, when you meet your baby you'll just know!

I like Logan, Dexter and Grayson.
Agree with poster above about Cody (another Neighbours fan)
Really not keen on Riley.

Cody - too American, frilly name
Grayson - love it!
Dexter - not sure
Riley - no, no very popular
Logan - another no

Good luck, little boys are fab!

They all sound very American to me so a bit weird to my ear

I don't like any of them sorry

I don't like any of them sorry

Sorry I don't like any of them. But you'd probably dislike my favourites so don't take it personally.

Wouldn't be my choices, but he's your baby. Try to consider when he is a man - will the name still be appropriate then? in his career?

Thanks for all the responses, seems like Dexter and Grayson are the least disliked! All good to know (especially about the Cody as a girls name thing). If anyone has any suggestions that are in line with some of those above then let me know. BTW, if it was purely up to me, i would use either Noah, Finn or Milo. DH hates these but LOVES the name Keaton....we seem to be worlds apart in the baby naming stakes! I suspect we will be undecided for a while...
