Any good suggestions from outside the top 100?

Other names that I like but can't use are:
Felix
Inigo
Tate
Milo
Atticus
Griffin

Weirdly I have heard Atticus being shouted in local parks a LOT over the last two years! There must be a lot of them round here!

Asa
Orson
Buzz (I know, I know, but I LOVE it)

All were on my lists, but unused. Tricky isn't it?

Atticus is in the top 10 for the year so far... I saw it in Facebook so it must be right!

If I could say 'S' properly, Saul would be my go-to familiar but not overly used name.

DS is Hugh - nice solid name, well known but hardly any other children seem to be named it! To me at least it doesn't seem as try hard as Hugo.

Love Atticus dh vetoed that one
I knew twins called Raphael (nn Raph) and Remus

I think it really depends where you live. We're in Scotland so I know quite a few boys called things like Hector, Gregory, Duncan, Grant, Fergus, Rory, Euan, Blair - go to Oxfordshire or Cornwall and there are probably very few.

On the other hand, I've never come across a Rupert or Guy north of the border.

And as for Tyger - just don't.

Scone Hugh is a lovely, lovely name- very underused (though we have a fair few Huws here in Wales.) Hugh always makes me think of lovely smiley men smile

Ha, Guerre, ds1 has 4 boys in his class from your list and ds2 has 2.
