A brother for Lucy

DD is Lucy. I like names that are probably a bit boring - my favourites at the moment are Samuel (Sam) and Benjamin (Ben). DH isn't keen on those, he likes Robert and George best at the moment. It's also a bit tricky as our surname is k-i-n-g, which rules out certain names (eg Jacob is nice but gets shortened to Jake, which sounds very phlegmy with a K surname!)

Names I quite like but cannot use include William, Matthew and Thomas.

Any other ideas?

Ben is the name that came to mind when I read your thread title.

Alexander (Alex)

Jack?

BoysNameHelpNeeded Thu 27-Oct-16 11:40:45

I can't say James properly! It sounds funny coming from me smile

I like Alexander but my very best friend has one. I know too many Anthonys that I haven't liked... Edward is ruled out (shame, I love Edward nn Ted) as our surname would make the poor sod a potato.

Jack is nice but no good, you either get jacking or a phlegmy sound again.

DanicaJones Thu 27-Oct-16 11:49:01

Good point

Harry?

I love the name Tom with Lucy but you have said you can't have Thomas. Is that no list definitely no?

BoysNameHelpNeeded Thu 27-Oct-16 12:29:51

The no list is absolutely emphatically no.

There are some nice names here to think about, thanks everyone, keep them coming smile

DanicaJones Thu 27-Oct-16 12:38:34

Ben and Lucy go well.

I came on to say Ben or William.

Other suggestions:
Oliver
Jack (prob not great with King though)
Harry
James
Max
Noah

I was going to suggest Joseph too but I assume Joe King is out.

Alfie? My DN is called Lucy and my her little brother is called Alfie.

I don't think you can use any Royal names without it sounding a bit odd.

George King = King George
William King = King William etc.
