Dp and I are expecting our first baby in July, and at this rate he's going to be nameless!!

Dp has very er... Adventurous tastes. I am not opposed to something unusual, but not dp's level of crazy!

Examples of names I like-
Isaac
Cameron
Kieran
Seth
Sebastian
Finn

Examples of names dp likes-
Hudson
Malachi
Ranulph
Valentine
Efren

Can anyone help us find a middle ground before my head explodes?!

I liked Fergus when I was last preggers but it was a girl!
There are two local boys I know called Cooper and Mason and I always think they're cute names. I quite like the American way of using surnames as first names.

Malachi' s Irish meaning my messenger/my angel . another Irish one is Oisin (pronounced oysheen) it means 'little deer', I knew a little boy with that name and liked it.

We've got an Alasdair. A lot of the names on your OH list would appeal to my DH!

My DH is Erlend and loves his name. Although he does get letters to Ms and has been referred to as Earland, Ireland and Erin among others.

pasbeaucoupdegendarme Tue 19-Apr-16 23:00:27

Malachi is Hebrew, actually, not Irish. But it's true that it means my angel or my messenger (such things being one and the same in the Bible...)
I love it.

How about Gregory? Ezra is becoming more popular too... Jonah? Elliot?

cbigs Tue 19-Apr-16 23:01:14

Mason is quite chavvy round my way tbh . blush Hudson is cute though ...

We had a similar split in name tastes - I loved Cameron and Angus and DH loved 'cooler' names like Otis and Jackson. We compromised with the name Archer, as it was a family name (nn Archie) if that helps. Of your two lists I really like Hudson and Cameron. Other names that might be a good compromise would be Otto, Rafe, Leon or Silas? I'd love to see more baby Hudsons though!

Grufalosfriend Wed 20-Apr-16 09:27:56

I like Valentine. Reminds me of Valentine Warner.

Congrats! I actually like names on both your lists and don't really see one list as being wackier than the other. My favourite names on there are Isaac, Sebastian, Finn and Ranulph, all of which we/I really like (and one of which we still might go for - also due in July).

I don't think I've seen you on the July group...? If you fancy it, come and join us! The latest thread is called July 2016 babies (8)...

I love Malachi - I'm going to add that to my list of boys names for my imaginary 3rd son. It's on the list with Vaughn, which I also love.

I have 2 boys with surnames for first names - Carter and Sullivan. Use them if you wish grin
