DS is due on Christmas Day smile
Grey will be his middle name - I know not everyone will like it, but I wanted something a little different!
Our final list is:
- Noah
- Isaac
- Elliott
- Oliver "Ollie"
- Edward "Teddy"
Thank you!

I actually like all of your names and Grey is a pretty cool middle name. I actually can't decide...

I love Grey as a middle name. For some reason I think Elliot Grey goes the best . I usually don't like the name Elliot but I think with the middle name it has a really nice ring and sounds quite posh. I also like Edward.

Ollie or Teddy are my faves.

Isaac or Oliver. And of those two, Oliver Grey flows best.

Noah - too faddy
Isaac - like, classic
Elliott - OK
Oliver "Ollie" - like
Edward "Teddy" - like Edward but not Teddy

Oliver or Isaacs are my favourites.

I love Oliver and always have done, but our last name begins and ends with an O - Orlando, so I'm not sure if it's a good idea? Also, he would probably only be Teddy for a little while - as he gets older, I'm sure it would turn into Ted/Ed/Eddie! I still love Noah and it is my favourite, but no votes for that yet!

It depends on your last name Noah grey fox for example would be a bit silly!

Borninthe60s Mon 30-Nov-15 21:38:34

Sorry just seen your last name. I'd avoid Noah as he will undoubtably get No as he gets older as that's his initials unless he uses the middle initial and most of the boys I know don't and all have nick names.

Oliver and Teddy are dull. I do like Edward though.
Not a fan of Noah.
Isaac is probably my fave of the remaining two. Elliott is nice as well.

EGO AND IGO and NO(ah)GO wrong IMO!

JennaLouiseO Mon 30-Nov-15 21:55:08

Honestly, I'm not too fussed about the initials - I mean, I would be, but none seem too horrendous! I guess EGO isn't so great, but I doubt it would be used too often... DH loves Jayden... I'm not keen, but what do you think on that name? He seems to like the more trendy names!

Edward and Isaac are my favourites. Not keen on Jayden.

JennaLouiseO Mon 30-Nov-15 21:59:43

Isaac Grey Orlando - I do like it! smile Isaac was DH's least favourite though sad

JennaLouiseO Mon 30-Nov-15 22:27:18

He has now suggested Aidan/en and I like it - how about you? Also, Aidan or Aiden?

IamSantaClaus Mon 30-Nov-15 22:29:42

Yes to Aidan , lovely name.

celtictoast Mon 30-Nov-15 22:29:33

I like Aidan (with the a spelling). It goes well with the middle name and surname too.

magpie17 Mon 30-Nov-15 22:34:25

Aiden or Oliver for me. Teddy is too trendy right now and there are lots of little Noah's at the moment.

Aiden Grey is lovely. Jayden is, well, not so lovely.

Paddletonio Mon 30-Nov-15 22:39:03

I love all the names on your list. Best is Elliot.

JennaLouiseO Mon 30-Nov-15 22:45:45

Sorry for all the comments, but what about Matthew Grey? smile

celtictoast Mon 30-Nov-15 22:46:22

Yes, Matthew is good too.

Elliott is a fantastic name I'm biased

Noah is also nice.

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 01-Dec-15 05:18:10

My favourites are Edward, Elliott and Matthew.

Oliver, Isaac and Noah massively popular amonst my children (4, 7)'s peers. Usually at least 2 of each name in any gathering of children.
