Congratulations! I much prefer your list and I personally think that if you can't agree, Mummy has prerogative. Good luck.

Please not Elvis or Gideon shock

Congrats on your new son!

capercaillie Mon 28-Mar-16 14:52:06

Like your list! His...not so much. The only one on there that's passable is Gideon. Kyan could become Kieran which is also nice.

I suspect my DH agreed to my suggestions after I gave birth...

dementedma Mon 28-Mar-16 14:52:34

I love all of your list, and only Gideon from his. Is he being serious?

GreenLounger Mon 28-Mar-16 14:53:44

He really is sad I can't find a name that even compromises!

green18 Mon 28-Mar-16 14:56:10

Congratulations on the birth of your son! I like your list more, particularly Alexander and Edward.Don't like any of his, to me they sound like a West/Kardashian short list......

228agreenend Mon 28-Mar-16 14:57:29

Yours are traditional, his are sir name-y. Can you find a name that fits somewhere in between, or do you have a mutual family name you could use. I guess you need an unusual traditional name!

Ashley, instead of Ash

captainfarrell Mon 28-Mar-16 14:59:22

OAK???? hmm you really need to put your foot down!

GreenLounger Mon 28-Mar-16 14:59:33

Ashley is better, but I don't particularly like it... It's okay, but I want to name him something I like!

I even offered to go to Fletcher, something id never pick, but thought that it was meeting in the middle - he didn't like it. I thought he'd think twice after the birth, awful delivery actually... Nope, he's having none of it! sad

Congratulations!
Also vastly prefer your list.

Not on either of your lists, but what about Pascal (Pas-kahl) - it's a name that means ' Easter'. It's unusual at present, but has a long history. The Cornish version is 'Pascoe'.

Or, traditionally, Dominic was often used for boys born on a Sunday.

SanityClause Mon 28-Mar-16 15:00:17

Your names are mostly a bit boring, and his are all a bit "out there".

Of the two lists, I like Reuben, Kieran, Zachary and Dante.

Are Kieran and Kyan sufficiently similar to compromise on? Or how about Cian (the c is hard, so a bit like Kieran and Kyan).

Ben
Harry

I like Pascal. quite popular in France. Dominic was my boy choice but had 2 girls!

228agreenend Mon 28-Mar-16 15:02:00

Maxwell
Marshall
Clifford
Wesley

Maybe choose a first name from your list, and a middle name from his.

Congrats on the birth of you little Easter bunny.

(Any pics?)

Rowan
Hardy
Miles
Lewis
Louis
Charlie

GreenLounger Mon 28-Mar-16 15:03:41

I wouldn't say my list was boring, but then I wouldn't grin

He doesn't like Ben or Harry...

I love them both!

I quite like Cian, but not sure if I like it enough sad

captainfarrell Mon 28-Mar-16 15:03:59

The thing with his list is that they are quite showbizzy and it's hard to live up to a name like that in the real world. It can come over a bit chavvy when you live in, I don't know, somewhere like Huddersfield and you're called Dante or Oak!

thebestfurchinchilla Mon 28-Mar-16 15:04:51

Love love love Miles but prefer the spelling of Myles.

Dontlickyourplate Mon 28-Mar-16 15:04:59

Love your list, hate his, sorry!

Call the baby Benjamin Bunny to keep with the Easter theme.
Congratulations flowers

Congratulations flowers

How about:

Gabriel
Seth
Cooper
Elijah
Jackson
Elliott

youknowwhattodo Mon 28-Mar-16 15:08:55

I like Joseph, shortened to Joe

Sgoinneal Mon 28-Mar-16 15:09:11

Rowan? Traditional but if he's suggesting Oak could try a different tree!

Matthew wins for me, like the Dominic suggestion.

RavioliOnToast Mon 28-Mar-16 15:10:01

Teddy!!!

Luke or Luca or Lucas
Jeremiah or Jerry for short
