Hi, I'm in need of some suggestions for boy names-please! I'm 28 weeks with twin boys and struggerling with names. We already have a Dylan. Here are ones I've got so far...

Tobias - Toby
Oliver - ollie
Benjamin, bengi

And then there's middle name to decide on?! Any ideas? X

Xavier and Toby.
Jake is okay not as over done as Jacob
Don't like the sound of Ollie, Plus very over used. It seems to me, That it's every other boys name.
I like Ben as a nn for Benjamin but not Benji
Unless you're expecting a litter of puppies.
Same with Rex

Oliver and Benjamin, Tobias and Oliver or Tobias and Benjamin

Rex and Toby (favourite)

Benjamin and Rex
Oliver and Rex

Rex MUST be used!! Ignore the dullard comments re. dogs/puppies, just not relevant in the 21st century.

Xavier and Tobias
Toby and Jake

On their own they're all good names but, together, Toby and Rex and Benji and Rex do sound like a pair of dogs.

Rex and Toby are rather tiresome brothers in the Archers.

Oliver and Rex.

Thanks for the feedback! Still can't decide, anyone got any new suggestions? Got to say I'm 26 and never listened to the archers haha...

And you have Dylan already of course. Benjamin means last child, originally given to a 'surprise baby'
Dylan and Oliver?
What about Otto?

Otto reminds me of that crazy bus driver guy off the Simpsons. :D picking names is so stressful! I want something a bit different, just thinking of other kids names in school which I want to avoid, they're all quite standard names like Henry, thomas, Sebastian, Sam, Jack, Noah.

Sebastian and Rex

Rex and Laurence

Like many of those names. Toby and Oliver were on my list. Rory and Peter were also on that list and would go well.

Jake and Toby

A good balance of quirky and ordinary, like Dylan.

Thanks ladies smile Toby is my favourite at the moment. I'm currently in hospital having steroid injections after having a scan and got to stay in tonight for monitoring - not what I expected but got to wait and see, going to be a busy time of hospitals to come!

Oliver and Benjamin are my favourites.

Also like Oliver and Rex as well as Rex and Laurence.

Like your list - a lot were on mine if DD had been a DS!

I love Rex, Tobias and Benjamin. Oliver is nice, but there are a lot. I don't like Xavier as much. Jake is OK.

Have a go with this brilliant ONS graphic thing to see how popular/otherwise names are.

Toby and Rex are definitely dog names, together (kind of fine separately) and I'd say the same about Max and Ben and Rover as well.

Rory, Elliott and Charlie are much further down the lists, and are all lovely names IMO.

Charlie max

Adam Charles
Elliot jake
Max & Alex

what about Henry and Oliver

cecilelliott Mon 02-May-16 22:59:30

Rex and Ben.
Toby is a nice enough name but it's super popular the moment if that bothers you.

Good Luck whatever you decide.
