I'm having a name panic!

37 weeks and still cannot find a name for our baby boy.

The only name the other half and I have (sort of) agreed on is Frank/Frankie but other than that I have no back-up. I'd like to have at least two names to decide on when I meet him incase he doesn't look a certain name.

Help please!

I like older/vintage type names, other half prefers more traditional names. Just want something different that isn't too out there. We have decided on Thomas for a middle name so that's nice and easy, most names should go with that nicely.

I have a Frank already (short for Franklin), and names we had on the list this time were -

Vincent
Hector
Tobias
Hugo

I'm sure we had more than that! Been focused on girl names since 20 weeks (and in much the same boat as you at 34 weeks)

Don't worry - neither of mine had names until they were a few days old!
DC1 was a name that wasn't even on my 'list' but came to me in a flash while I was bf a few days in. DC2 was the name on top of our list, but took a week to be sure it was right.

Love Albie but partner doesn't sad

Thanks everyone for a few to consider there, I think partner is fussier than me tho!

I was the same. Had a list as long as my arm for girls but struggling with boys names. Hopefully the perfect name will just hit me!

Love Frank!

Or what about Bob/Bobby(Robert) A classic and so few around at the moment.

Frank is a nice fresh name. If you want a name that doesn't get swallowed up in the masses, I would avoid Teddy/Theo/Leo/Toby/Tobias/Arthur -all nice names but so many of them around at the moment

Good Luck!
