We're looking for boy name ideas to go with our first son Dillon.

We're Sikh and looking for cool English/Indian crossover names to go with Dillon - we're struggling to find any we really like.

Any ideas similar to Arun/Hari/Jai/Kian please send them my way 😀

How about Kiran?
We had a family friend years ago called Nikhil (sp?) which I always liked too.

Jai is lovely.

I like Onkar, cool name, Ajay, and Arun.

My friend who also has a Dilan has a second son called Jay. She wished she hadn't named her nephew Kiran so she could have used that

My friend has an Arron and a Mani.

Also have heard Sonny which I like and guess it is short for something.

Sorry posted too soon. Meant to say short for something like Sandeep.

Ooh some nice names on here, thanks everyone.

We're toying with the name Jai or Deven, not sure yet.

Kiran is nice too, but I have a female cousin with that name. So we'd avoid that. We love Arun too but my nephew is called that and husband isn't too keen on naming our son the same.

Our favourite name is Hari, although given our surname our poor boy would be nicknamed haribo at school so can't really torture him with that for life!
