Love Caleb, Jonah and Arlo. I also love Idris, but for me, there's only one Idris.

I like Alban and Idris best.

I lik Alban, Arlo and Seth. Arlo, Idris and Jonah also OK. Not keen on Caleb and Torben.

Make that - Arlo is fair to middling grin

Caleb, Jonah and Seth - gorgeous names. Love Idris - but suspect that's the man rather than the name, and as Ex says, there is only one Idris grin

Love Jonah and Arlo!

Alban and Idris

I still think of Idris as really Welsh, think in Ivor the Engine... Tend to forget the other Idris! Other half is very keen on Seth, Idris and Torben, I am a hormonal mess and have no idea at all which I prefer anymore, hence asking for help! First two boys are Ivan and Rowan if that helps?

TabithaTwitchEye Sat 05-Dec-15 20:50:12

There can be only one Idris.

TabithaTwitchEye Sat 05-Dec-15 20:50:42

Torin? That's pretty gorgeous.

BossyOfficerFlossie Sat 05-Dec-15 20:56:34

Like Torin too... Does that work better than Torben?

BossyOfficerFlossie Sat 05-Dec-15 20:59:22

And OH also likes Arthan, again we have a definite Welsh tendency!

celtictoast Sat 05-Dec-15 21:04:57

I like Torin.

TabithaTwitchEye Sun 06-Dec-15 17:26:47

Much prefer Torin to Torben.

Torin, Idris, Calab and Jonah are all great.
I hate Seth, it's such a hissy sounding name. Don't like Arlo, it seems very now iyswim.

I have a Seth so clearly that is an awesome name!

I'm thinking about Idris this time so think we have similar taste - I do worry about the 'there's only one Idris' thing though. I also like Arlo but that seems to be growing in a popularity very quickly and, having been stung by that before (I had a Noah at the start of the wave thinking it was unusual and now there are millions! confused).
