Please help! We still have no boys name. I'm starting to feel really upset as DH and I just can't seem to pick something we both love. We have chosen Esme for a baby girl and both feel excited about it as it feels 'right' . Boys names we have noted just now but none seem perfect sad

Harrison
Hugo
George
Oscar
Benjamin
Leo
Hunter
Innes

Harris
Ivo
Austin
Theo
Sylvester
Sebastian
Luis
Zander

Thank you both for your suggestions. Harry and Archie are lovely but both names of family members kids! As is Theo sad

What about Jude or Gabriel?

I just googled 'Esme's brother' to see what people who like Esme liked for boys. Interesting:

First names linked to Esme were:

Emmett
Ellroy
Enzo
Calum
Flynn
Augustus
Milo
Ninnian
Charles

What about Louis?

KLG3101 Sat 26-Dec-15 22:52:08

I know a female Jude who really puts me off the lovely name! (Isn't that awful of me??) I like Milo but scared it'll date? Flynn is gorgeous but doesn't go with our surname!

My favourite boys' names at the mo are Keir and Ezra. Any good?

KLG3101 Sat 26-Dec-15 22:57:18

I worked with a Louis who gave me the creeps!! Ezra is a lovely name, will suggest to DH! X

Love Max but it's a close friends sons name sadly. Love Milo but can't see DH liking it - I will try! Love Joshua also but again it's a close friends kids name - goddammit!! Thank you so much for reading and suggesting some names!

KLG3101 Sat 26-Dec-15 23:04:44

Jack again is our best friends son snd Finlay a surname of someone we know who we wouldn't want to share name with. We are a nightmare!!

milo19799 Sat 26-Dec-15 23:25:12

It's so difficult isn't it?! Especially when other people have beat you to them! angry. wink I do think you have some lovely names on your original list though.

DancingDuck Sat 26-Dec-15 23:29:36

Ezra is lovely. Is that on your shortlist now?
How about Izaak? I love it but DH vetoed it.
Otto?
