Struggling to come up with boys names for second ds due in January.

Ds1 is called Liam.

The only few names we have both agreed on so far are;


I would love some inspiration and honest opinions on the name Nelson.

I love it. Perhaps biased because I know one and he is a very charming, funny and lovely grown up man.

I'm afraid I can't get past this Nelson:

That's exactly what I feared!

I like it. First thoughts are of Lord Horatio and Mandela - pretty inspiring characters. I haven't watched the Simpsons in years. I suppose he might get some jokes about Nelson's column when he's older, if you live near London.

I like Joseph too, but there are soooo many Jacks around.

Much prefer jack or Joseph!

Also it's my DPs surname so I just think it sounds more like a surname than a first name.

Also, the Simpsons.

Yup Simpsons...sorry OP sad

Nielsen maybe or just Neil or Niall or Nile.
I like Joseph/Joe the best from your other options - I used to love the name Jack about 30 years ago when I worked with one but it's been done too much for me now.

I thought of Mandela first.

My mind goes immediately to Mandela, not a bad association by any means.

Liam and Nelson to me sounds a bit like 'Liam Neeson'.

I really like Joseph.

I know one who is about 10yo now. Not named for any above reasons.
