Hi all,

Expecting ds in the autumn and have still not found the right name- we have names we like but I'm not in love grin
Criteria are that it isn't a nickname (Dh fairly ridiculous about this, he sees Theo and Max and being nicknames and I'm not keen on Theodore or Maxwell/ Maximilian hmm), not too popular (defo not top 10) and nothing too trendy.
Names I like but have been rejected for various reasons-
Theo
Max
Elliot
Dexter (too chicken to use this!)
Lucas (too close to my first name)
Frederick (Freddie)
Christopher (Kit)

Dh is keen in Samuel (Sam) but I'm still torn...
Help!

Not sure about Max and Sam.
Detest Lucas but it is very popular are is so for a reason
Freddie is cute.
Nothing brave about using Dexter. It's gorgeous.
Love Elliot.
Christopher is nice but prefer the nn Chris. And there won't be any of them in his class.

A lot of the names mentioned here are on my shortlist. Gregory is still at the top, along with the ones already mentioned we also have Hugo, Dominic and Alexander.

Max could be short for Maxim, is that any better?
