The name is Keir Ian James.

We have a surname beginning with Mr - are the initials just too close in the alphabet or wouldn't that matter? The two middle names are close family names and the first name I just love.

Thoughts? (Temp name change due to friends knowing my username)

I think it's a lovely name!

Love it! Although when giving his full name some might mis-hear as Kieran James.

Good name imo smile

Quite like Keir, a new one for me, but yes it does sounds confusing followed by Ian. Keir Ian all becomes one word. Could you have Kier James Ian instead?

I did think that but didn't feel that Keir James Ian folded as well as Keir Ian James.

I was thinking as well that it is so rare that we would say his full name especially as he got older. Obviously I would pause between the Keir and Ian too

All great names, but I also think that Keir James Ian works better.

I love it! I know a Keir who is a thoroughly nice chap. He does get a bit annoyed that people alway spell his name wrong because of "I before e except after c", but I don't think that's taught any more.

Agree Keir Ian James flows better than Keir Jame Ian.

Keir is a fab name, I think Keir Ian James works well.

I love it too, especially Ian which is a name not used often anymore... That's a good thing! Keir Ian James... a good, solid, strong name. If I have to suffer another "Reuben or Zebedee" thread...wink

Sounds like a good Scottish name to me!

RamonaTheBrave Thu 03-Mar-16 17:54:29

Scottish we are smile with a Scottish surname too. When I say the full name it doesn't sound like Keiran - definately sounds like Keir Ian. I was expecting people to not like the Ian part as it's not very well liked on here upon searching past baby names.

Lovely name!

Fab name all round. I'm glad you're Scottish though, I loved Keir for DS but I'm English (DH is Scottish and we live in Scotland) and when I say it it sounds like 'Kia'! It's lovely with the Scottish 'rrrrr' on the end.

DramaAlpaca Thu 03-Mar-16 20:05:41

I like it a lot.

AlisonWunderland Thu 03-Mar-16 20:11:48

I wouldn't get too hung up on how the full name sounds as long as you like each bit. No one ever uses it

RamonaTheBrave Thu 03-Mar-16 20:25:28

That's what I thought Alison thanks all, getting excited for this little man star
