Thoughts on these names?

I THINK we like these as first names: Abel

Potential middle names or names I like but have been vetoed:
Cass? Cassius? Cassian? Caspar?

Can you expand or reduce this list!?!
(I hate boys names)

Abel or Ivan are great. Abel as first choice if I had to pick.

The rest are far too try-hard IMO.

I didn't like the names on the first list but then I read the second list and decided the first one wasn't so bad after all grin

Why do you "hate" boys' names? confused There are some lovely boys' names out there.

Are you completely set on something very unusual?

Aah, hormones.

Soon as he's born you'll call him Tom grin

I think the second list is my hormonal crazy holy side emerging which is why my husband is saying no! But I think we can have an unusual middle name?!

I have three children already and found naming the two boys very difficult. Girls names are so much easier!

Pebbles0934 Fri 11-Nov-16 09:01:57

Hippy not holy!

Pebbles0934 Fri 11-Nov-16 09:03:03

No I have three children with slightly unusual names so I don't think Tom will fit!

YvaineStormhold Fri 11-Nov-16 09:03:44

You can, but I'I just imagining his best man's shoulders shaking at his wedding when his middle name is revealed to be 'Valiant'.

Bless smile

I think Tom is boring but there is a middle ground between Tom and your list.

Pebbles0934 Fri 11-Nov-16 09:05:17

Ha! Yes that might be taking it a step too far! I was looking at boy versions of Faith, Hope and that cropped up!

I'm more concerned about the first list as can't even decide on a first name yet!

Pebbles0934 Fri 11-Nov-16 09:05:51

I thought the first list was quite normal! 🙈😂

Pebbles0934 Fri 11-Nov-16 09:08:05

I quite liked
Abel Atticus
Rohan Red
Ivan Valentine

First list is good second list is, umm, not so good.

BTW is Valour a reference to Pokemon Go's Team Valor? grin You have also included Red which is Team Valors colour

Errppppp Fri 11-Nov-16 09:31:36

.. and definitely don't use Red as a first name with Orion as a second name as it will look like a cooking ingredient. (Well it would on a small phone screen grin).

First list is ok, Otis is a great name ;)
I personally dont think you should pick a name your partner has vetoed... you cant make someone like a name. A lot of names I liked were vetoed.
With both our boys we went for a slightly unusual/not common first name and a 'normal' name ffor middle, so they can swap it later in life if they like.
Boty love their names now smile
Good luck, naming your kid is super hard, but they all grow into them eventually.

Abel! I love it.

Chinlo Fri 11-Nov-16 09:47:49

I love your list!

This is my order of preference:

Atticus (love!)
Otis (love!)
Abel (love!)
Ivan (Don't love quite as much, but it's really cool!)
Luther (this is the only one I'm not keen on)

I also LOVE Phoenix, Rohan, and Cassius (which is going to be our soon to be born DS's middle name)

Are you me?!

I am expecting no 4 in feb (3rd boy, 1 girl) and your names are all on my list but still struggling. I had loads of girls names.

user1471950254 Fri 11-Nov-16 11:44:33

I like Ivan. Sorry but not keen on any of your middle names

idontlikealdi Fri 11-Nov-16 11:45:38

I love all of he first list - the second list is a bit too much with those first names!

PrancerForHoney Fri 11-Nov-16 11:48:14

I have a Cassius.
Luther Cassius would be great.
