Naming a baby is so hard!! I think we have agreed on Eden nn Edie for girl however there's no boys names that I love.
Names I like but can't use for one reason or another are Oscar, Hugo, Freddie Arthur and Alfie. If I like them what else am I likely to like?

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Thu 26-May-16 23:04:50

Eden is lovely.

For boys...

Archie
Charlie
Benji
Matty
Danny
Or the longer/full names.

Seth
Stanley
Gabriel

If you're going to call a girl Edie day to day, how about something that's a bit more of a 'proper' girls' name, such as Edith? I'm just really not sure I'd thank you for Eden on my birth cert if I were your dd.

I much prefer Eden to Edith but thank you anyway. All those boys names are nice but I just can't imagine naming my child them, whereas when we heard Eden we loved it straight away!

How about
Reuben
Quentin
Rufus

Ludways Fri 27-May-16 09:06:12

I know a male Eden, I think it's unisex, so if you like it a lot, use it.

ABitAsleep Fri 27-May-16 09:12:32

I am another one that loves Edie, but hates Edith! I like Eden too, but also like Edie as a stand alone name smile

For boys;
Christian
Casper
Samuel
Adam
Albert (Bertie)
Robin
Rupert
Rory
Rudy

I also know of a male Eden.

What about Ethan?

Ethan's nice, LOVE Albert/Bertie but I know DH won't. I've never heard of Eden for a boy, I'll suggest it too. What's people's thoughts on Jesse for a boy?

Pipilangstrumpf Fri 27-May-16 11:01:45

I would think that Edie could get mispronounced as Edd-ie as in a nickname for Ed.

Ethan - great suggestion above

Aidan?

Ludways Fri 27-May-16 13:17:27

I've always loved Jesse but clashes awful with my surname.

LadyAntonella Fri 27-May-16 13:26:11

I'm not all that terribly keen on Jesse but it's quite nice, just wouldn't be my favourite.

pilates Fri 27-May-16 13:39:01

Eden is beautiful
I was going to suggest Albert, but Jesse is really nice too.

NapQueen Fri 27-May-16 13:39:59

Jesse is great!

What about

Sid
Ted
Travis
Red
Gus
Owen
Hugh

NapQueen Fri 27-May-16 13:40:16

Not red!!! Rex. Dawn autocorrevt

rainbowstardrops Fri 27-May-16 13:47:14

I absolutely love Eden. I may just be ever so slightly biased though 😚

I've heard of Male Eden's too but for me, it's a girly name

EllenDegenerate Fri 27-May-16 16:47:01

My son is called Eden. I love it.

My other son is Reuben, how about Xavier or Raphael?
