As the title suggests, I'm 11 weeks and so far so good. This is in the wake of 4 losses so can't really discuss names with husband as he's a bit superstitious about it. Totally convinced I'm having a boy so tell me what you think...
Blake
Cassius
Rufus
Art
Noah
Joseph (but HATE Joe)
Jackson (but also the name of our dog so too strange?)
Naaman (biblical)
Stevie
Milo
Asa
Niall
Rory
Atlas
Fox (I live in Hackney so would be socially acceptable in these parts)
If it does turn out a girl
Edith
Eilidh
India
Dorothy (dotty)
Olive (husband hates)
Hope (too much of a burden?)
Abra
Opinions and more suggestions please grin I can but dream/hope

I also love sufjan but we're a Christian family. But so is Sufjan Stevens I suppose

I'm so aorry for your losses.

From your list, my favourites are:

Cassius
Rufus
Auden (this is on our list for DS2, due next week!)
Rory

My husband also loves Cassian but I'm not as keen. I know a little Roran, which you might like?

Other suggestions:

Kit
Keir
Roman
Stellan

P.S. It will be v hard to use Joseph without others calling him Joe! Josiah?
