My twin girl is called Isla and I am trying to choose a name for her brother, help!

Alex, Cameron or Jack??

I'm Scottish and Irish and the middle name will be Alistair.

Thank you!

Cameron Alistair.

Not Alex, as Alistair is already a form of Alexander

I like Jack Alistair

Cameron. Great name. And though Jack is a lovely name it's a bit over-used (not that that matters if you love it.)

Alistair would be lovely for a first name.

I agree, you can't really have Alex Alistair, as it is the same name. I think Alistair would work great as a first name. If it has to be the middle name, I would say Jack Alistair.

Cameron is fabulous.

Can you really have Cameron without instantly thinking David though?

Cameron, David would be the last person I'd think of.

Cameron is a great name and goes well with Isla. If a baby was given this name I wouldn't associate it with twatface David

Isla and Cameron are lovely together.

id probably have cameron only due to alex being too close to alistair. But i gotta admit the first thing i though of with these names was Alex Salmond and David Cameron lol

Alex and Isla - I like the way they both have same amount of syllables.

Thank you for you comments, we have dropped Cameron and now might use Alistair as a first name! It feels more 'proper' and masculine than Alex although perhaps it doesn't go as well with Isla and will be shortened to Ali which is more feminine than Alex?!

I really like Cameron!

Coey2016 Mon 17-Oct-16 21:54:38

Oops sorry just seen your latest post. Alastair is nice too, I prefer it to Alex personally

tweedledid Mon 17-Oct-16 21:57:12

Cameron, but I'm bias!

Alistair is a great strong name. Much more interesting than Alex.

PotatoBread Tue 18-Oct-16 11:25:38

If you've ruled out Cameron (which is a great name btw), I prefer Alistair to Alex.

notagiraffe Sun 23-Oct-16 18:10:02

All the Alistair/Alisdairs I know have been shortened to Sandy. Do you like that shortened version?
Al is good too, and more masculine than Ali if that matters to you.
