Hi All.

Little man (my first) is due March and really quite stuck. I'm in a panic now as had a recent health scare ..Kidney stones.... which was mistaken for labour and brought home how under-ready I am having a cheeky skyve from panic buying labour bag contents on amazon to post this, with only a handful names and most with reasons to rule out. Any suggestions MN'ers? I'm looking for something strong, a little unusual, but not zany (Apple is not under consideration!)

So Far

Seneca - like it, but worried too 'out there', and not easily shortened,
Lincoln - possibly front runner?
Cassius - again I like, but worry will be bastardised to Cassie and he'll be tomorneted
Julius - I really like this but as above, worry about it being changed to Julie by some bully?

Any other suggestions? or fors / against on the aboves?

...and why am I obsessing about bullies!?!?!?!

Just choose what you like really. Best wishes for your baby

Really like Lincoln and Julius. More likely to shorten to jules I would think.

Seneca is too out there.

Ferdinand?
Nelson?
Augustus?

I prefer Julian to Julius , I've known a couple of lovely Julian's (both French) .Seneca , is awful and I would be worried about it being too like Senna , as in the laxative , not the racing driver . I will contribute Levison , Dashiell and Gabriel for consideration .

Congrats on your pregnancy OP!

Seneca makes me think of laxatives too! Not keen on Julius or Cassius tbh but LOVE Lincoln.

ThePeoplesChamp Tue 20-Dec-16 23:01:16

Hey thanks All. Sounds like Seneca is heading for the chop...... it was DH's pic, but public consensus and all.. my hand is forced grin

Thank you for the suggestions too, very much appreciated. A few in there I liked but have been rejected by DH (making it quite easy to ditch Seneca..... I'd worred re laxitive too) I'll haggle over the rest, and any more with him in the morning and update.

ThePeoplesChamp Tue 20-Dec-16 23:02:16

...another last min nod to laxatives while I was typing!

Feeling vindicated grin

Lincoln is a great name and fits your criteria really well

NavyandWhite Tue 20-Dec-16 23:05:44

Seneca?

Cassius is one of my favourite names. I would just pick that if I were you.

NavyandWhite Tue 20-Dec-16 23:06:12

I know a few dachshunds called Lincoln grin

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 20-Dec-16 23:18:26

Lincoln is good. How about:

Osian
Justin
Orson
Jarvis

MummyStep123 Tue 20-Dec-16 23:20:17

Love Lincoln
Also love Cassius, you could pre-empt the "bastardising" and use Cas as a short name as opposed to Cassie.
I'd use Cas on its own I like it that much.

Strokethefurrywall Tue 20-Dec-16 23:25:28

I loved Lincoln and considered putting our list for DS2 but DS1 is Carter and I figured we'd look like US presidential nutcases!

But my favorite for sure

Pluto30 Wed 21-Dec-16 00:21:38

Seneca is truly awful, and he'll deal with Seneca a lot in history class. Not fun.

I don't like Cassius because it seems too feminine (Cassandra, Cassia, Cass/Cassie etc). But I like Caspar.

I don't mind Julius but prefer Julian. I think both are likely to be shortened to Jules, not Julie.

Love Lincoln. Uncommon, but not unheard of and not too out there. Plus, it has a very positive association in Abraham Lincoln (rightly or wrongly).

Prefer Julian to Julias. Lincoln is nice. What about Studley, Bradshaw or simply John?

buttercup54321 Wed 21-Dec-16 00:32:06

Prefer Julian to Julias. Lincoln is nice. What about Studley, Bradshaw or simply John? Heard that Nigel and Garry are getting rare. Maybe Dominic, Tristan Jethro Lyle or Kelvin?

If you like the Latin feel how about Maximus or Augustus (Max / Gus as nn if you so wish)? Or Caecilius wink

Alternatively how about...

Balthazar
Caelan
Cassian - alternative to Cassius
Cyrus
Isambard
Silas?

I really like Lincoln, Cassius and Julius. I think Cass and Jools would be the most likely nicknames.

(Yes, I thought "laxatives" too. Seneca best avoided).
