Ideas so far


Can't think of any others I like. Any ideas to inspire me?

I like all the names on your list smile other suggestions:
- Edward
- William
- Zachary
- Joseph
- Marcus
- Lucas
- Jacob
- Oliver
- Harrison
I think it should be another name that shortens smile

I know about 20 Daniels, Samuels and Thomases. I don't know any Benedicts and I rather like it as a name.

As for Lily's suggestions - there are a lot of really popular names on that list too (William, Zachary, Lucas and Oliver in particular - at least around here in the leafy home counties).

Yeah, but Matthew isn't exactly unusual smile

You're right there Lily! Tempted to be a bit more unusual this time but will probably chicken out!

Matthew's brother is Michael. There sorted. grin

Matthew is lovely and not that popular as some of the names mentioned (e.g. Samuel, Oliver, William).

How about

LilyKing0909 Thu 03-Dec-15 15:01:27

I guess it's just regions! Matthew is really popular here!

YY to Elliot that goes really well & is a lovely name.

From your list I think Thomas is the best.

LilyKing0909 Thu 03-Dec-15 15:02:45

I like Elliott too - but with the double t

I know some Matthew and Laura combinations, so how about Laurence?

hobitty Thu 03-Dec-15 15:19:52

But Laurence is a girls name, the female version of Laurent. At least on the Continent....

Perhaps safer to spell it Lawrence?

David, Joshua, Jonah, Eric, Edgar, Peter, Joseph, Liam, Niall.

From previous suggestions I love Michael, Jacob, Lucas and Dominic.

Really don't like Benedict. Your other choices are nice though.

Daniel is a brilliant name. How about James, Luke, David, Joseph, Ethan, Nathan, Stephen, Caleb and Isaac?

Benedict is good if you're going for something different smile
