Currently pregnant with no 2, and looking for a Scottish name for the bump! We've a shortlist of boys names but no girls names! I've always liked isla and eilidh, but both are so popular in my area that I no longer want to use them! I can't find any unique that I love, anyone any suggestions? Thanks!

Actually I love Alba, said this early on however it was a no from dh! May mention it again. Have a feeling he'll still say no! I have the name rhua in mind tonight, but not sure if I made this name up!

How about Fiona or Rhona or Catriona or Mhari or Katie or Morag or Marsalli or Lorna or ...

Eilidh, Catriona, Mairi or Mhairi, Rhona, Rhoda and Seonag are ones that come to mind.
Skye is quite a popular name for sheepdogs so I'd give that one a miss personally!

My name, both my sisters and my mums name have all been mentioned here! Never actually realised we had such a Scottish theme! Maybe I should move away from it after all....
