Hi All

I am looking for some help!!! I have 8 weeks to go and we cannot decide on a boys name. I think we will be ok if we have a girl. My dd is called Harper and the potential boys names we have so far are:


Any other suggestions or comments welcome smile

I like caspar.

I like Flynn but prefer Fynn
I like Casper but prefer it spelt Kasper
Don't like Avery at all.
Knox sounds like a girls name to me.
I like Brody and Bodhi and think they go well with Harper.
Other options which I think fit with your style could be Cassius, Sonny, Maximus or Zeke

I like Caspar (with a rather than e), Bodhi, and the suggestions of Cassius and Maximus.

Flynn is the best of the bunch. Brody/Brodie and Casper not bad. Avery is a girls name to me.

Knox = Amanda Knox to me. I can't get past that association.
I like Bodhi, Brody and Casper.

I Only like Casper.
Other suggestions.

I'm not sure if you're asking for opinions on your current list - if so:

Flynn - nice, but I prefer Finn...
Casper - not keen
Avery - it's a girls' name, but that's only IMO (I know it's unisex)
Knox - I went to school with a boy whose last name is Knox, so I don't see it as a first name...
Brody - I like this, but spelt the original way (Brodie)
Bodhi - not keen

My favourite is Flynn...

I'm suggesting Ainsley smile

I like Brody.

Or how about Byron?

Harper and Byron....both authors.

I like Casper

How about Caspen not Casper? Goes better with Harper.
Harper and Casper not good
Harper and Caspen sounds fab

Flynn and Caspar are the only bearable ones out of that list.

I love Avery. <3

BoboBunnyH0p Thu 31-Mar-16 14:38:53

I like Avery. Can I suggest Chase, Perry and Addison.

FarrowandBallAche Thu 31-Mar-16 14:46:26

Isn't it spelt Caspar?

MamaLazarou Thu 31-Mar-16 16:38:50

Bodhi is way too faddy. It will date very badly.

How about Axel or Tate?

ugottabekidding Thu 31-Mar-16 16:41:47

What about Jagger?

BendydickCuminsnatch Thu 31-Mar-16 16:45:09

Flynn - to me it sounds a bit wet
Casper - love it
Avery - a girl's name in my mind, as it's my nanna's name. I know most people think of it as a boy's name though.
Knox - sounds a bit menacing
Brody - like
Bodhi - not my taste

Love your DD's name!!

BushDiggle Thu 31-Mar-16 16:45:28

Thanks for the suggestions, yh not sure I'm keen on Bodhi either now!!!

Boys names are DIFFICULT!!!!

BendydickCuminsnatch Thu 31-Mar-16 16:46:08

I hear ya, I hated trying to find DS' name!!! Girls names are abundant!

mrsschu Thu 31-Mar-16 21:15:33

I like Caspar (this spelling), the others on your list are dreadful IMO.

Ikeameatballs Thu 31-Mar-16 21:40:34

Flynn, Brodie or Knox go best with Harper imo though I only really like Brodie.

badg3r Thu 31-Mar-16 22:15:15

Harper and Casper don't go well. I really dislike Avery. It reminds me of aviary. Chase as pp suggested would be nice I think.
