Tristan is my favourite from your list and Cai my least favourite.

I like Gethin too.

Tristan - gorgeous

Big, big, big gap.

Cai (but I don't like it at all)
Stefan (hate it -sorry)

What about Trystan with the y?

casey101 Fri 27-Nov-15 23:32:14

thank you all so far. there are different ways of spelling it (tristan) but think that's the original

Bigpants4 Fri 27-Nov-15 23:32:25

Christian because then you get Kit as a nickname

Tristan is also nice. Dylan too. Dislike the others.

Dylan and Tristan are great. Cai has now been taken over by the 'Kai' Rooney types, I'd avoid like the plague. Geraint has always been a fave of mine (name AND uncle both faves).

i do like names with 'i' in Abe hence I like Christian, Finn, Cai, Tristan etc! So prob pref Tristan unless Tristyn but that looks a bit feminine?

casey101 Fri 27-Nov-15 23:35:27

Allalonenow ty i do like gethin but when i see it i also just see the words 'Get in!'

casey101 Fri 27-Nov-15 23:40:12

TY Bigpants4 i like Kit because of Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) but I just cant imagine calling my son Kit as in calling it out loud eg in the park etc. On the other hand i dont like the nickname chris which he would probably get??

casey101 Fri 27-Nov-15 23:42:08

Thanks Tigger, not as keen on Geraint as it's a slightly 'harsher' sound which is why i was unsure about Cai- tend to prefer softer vowel sounds I think...

I really like both Tristan and Dylan as Welsh boys names. I would avoid Cai personally because of the whole 'k' name fad. My son's an Owain. My favourite non-Welsh name was Elliot.

Tristan is really lovely. Dylan is nice too.

Defiantly no to Cai and Stefan.

I like Tristan and Dylan best.

Stefan - like
Dylan - like
Tristan - like
Cai - OK
Christian - like, with Chris as nickname, not Kit which is rather twee. If you don't like the nicknames then might not be a good idea to go for this name.
Finn - quite faddy, dislike

Tirfarthoin Sat 28-Nov-15 07:40:52

I love Stefan
Finn to me is a shortening of Finbar or Fintan they are great names

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 28-Nov-15 07:54:52

Dylan, Tristan, Stefan - all great.

casey101 Sat 28-Nov-15 10:50:16

thanks all just wondering if tristan will sound odd with last name which is also 2 syllables ending in the letter 'n'?

casey101 Sat 28-Nov-15 10:51:12

also another option was Kristian spelt this way?

IoraRua Sat 28-Nov-15 12:41:00

Stefan and Tristan are great.
Dylan is also nice.

Tirfarthoin Sat 28-Nov-15 19:39:44

If your concern is the first name with a two syllable surnam ending in n then that may rule out Dylan, Christian and Tristan. It does depend on the surname eg Dylan Nolan may not sound as good as Tristan Nolan.

Tirfarthoin Sat 28-Nov-15 19:40:20

Oh and Stefan Nolan

yeOldeTrout Sat 28-Nov-15 19:44:32

DS was nearly a Steven & ended up as a Tristan.
The others are fine, but I have to say DS goes thru life explaining that he is not Christian-Justin-Dustin-etc.

Doilooklikeatourist Sat 28-Nov-15 19:50:40

Tristan ( Trystram ? Tyrian ? )
Cai . No its awful
Dylan .. It's ok
