Alex or Cameron ?

Congratulations, I'd go for Alexander known as Alex. Cameron just makes me think David, sorry.

FatRun Tue 03-Nov-15 22:41:55

Yes I think Alexander too, for the same reasons

FatRun Tue 03-Nov-15 22:42:02

And congrats!

Aaah, lovely tiny fresh baby. Alexander for me too, for the same reasons as PP.

Love Alex too but I've met 5 under 18 months recently

Cameron. Loads of Alex/Alexanders!

Alexander "Alex"

Hopefully the David association will be gone by the time he's a teenager.

For my love of Ferris Bueller alone.

Let my Cameron goooo...

Cameron - much nicer than Alex

Cameron is just horrid, PM aside. Usually pronounced with the middle syllable missing entirely and I'm certain that's not correct. That's why you see the occasional Cam'ron shock Nice meaning too <evil cackle> if you set any store by meanings.

Alexander by 100 country miles.

Nope, I think it will take more than a decade or so before 'call me Dave' associations disappear.

Cameron. My 6 month DS is allied this and he's the only one I know. It's not crazy unusual but there's unlikely to be 5 of them in the class. We shorten DS's to Cam.

I love the name Alexander with the nicknames Alex or Xander- very handsome names x

Vixxfacee Wed 04-Nov-15 10:26:17

Cameron Alexander is a lovely name.

InkleWinkle Wed 04-Nov-15 10:35:24

Both good but Alex is my slight preference.

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 04-Nov-15 15:32:49

Alex. Just Alex.

Alexander is a bit smug.

I used to go out with a Cameron so think of him before I think of Dave. But to be honest neither of them are men I like being reminded of.

Alex/ander, Cameron is the PM.

CarrieT36 Wed 04-Nov-15 21:19:12

Cameron. Not keen on Alex but Alexander ok as a middle name.

Quite like Alexander nn Xander or Al but really dislike Alex.

I called my son (now 2) Alexander. It wasn't on our list - we chose it on the way back from the hospital. We went for it because:
- we have a short surname,
- lots of nn possibilities (Alex, Sandy, Zander etc)
- it's quite an international name - you could be Greek or Australian and you'd know how to pronounce it.

I couldn't use Cameron now I'm afraid.

WooLulu Thu 05-Nov-15 09:39:21

Ps he's the only Alexander in his group at nursery - weird but it's not that common. He calls himself 'Ali' but don't know if that's because he's not got the hang of 'x's yet.

HaydeeofMonteCristo Sun 08-Nov-15 00:09:17

Just don't go for both together (as in Alex for first name, Cameron for middle) as this is the name of call-me-Dave's brother.

I prefer Alexander which is my DS' middle name.
