I think we have finally decided on a shortlist for our DS, due in Feb. What do you think of these? To go with our surname, which rhymes with tardy and begins with an h :-)

Finn (too short?)

Middle name yet to be decided. Any other suggestions would be great too!

Tobias is gorgeous with your surname, love, love, love!
Can't really go wrong with any of them but I have a place in my heart for a Tobias H-ardy

Elias. Goes brilliantly with your surname. Tobias might end up being Toby which doesn't go so well imo

1horatio Fri 06-Jan-17 20:09:14

I don't really like Finn.
The other names are really lovely. And all of them would go with your surname imo.

Sebastian or Tobias.

Don't like Rowan much.

Not keen on Rowan, but otherwise I love them all.

Good luck though, not long now till your precious bundle arrives smile

Tobias or Sebastian

I think I prefer Rowan. But Tobias is really nice as well.

LadyMonicaBaddingham Fri 06-Jan-17 20:12:58

I love Rowan but truly I really prefer the 'Rohan' spelling Welsh

I do think Sebastian sounds nice with your surname. I know a little Sebastian with the nickname 'Bash', which is so cute!!

mum2bejen Fri 06-Jan-17 20:13:11

Sebastian is on our shortlist too! That's my favourite from your list :-)

I love Tobias from your list too.

Not Tobias because he will get called Toby and Toby 'Ardy is a bit Y heavy IMO. Finn is my fave. Rowan was a naughty boy at my school.

How are you pronouncing Elias?

maitaimojito Fri 06-Jan-17 20:16:01

I like Sebastian, Elias and Finn.

Ikeameatballs Fri 06-Jan-17 20:17:08

Sebastian or Finn

OurVelocity Fri 06-Jan-17 20:20:18

Thanks all! That's great :-)

We'd pronounce it Ee-ly-as I reckon

MarmiteDoesYouGood Fri 06-Jan-17 20:23:47

Nice list - mostly grin

Sebastian - love.
Tobias - not a fan.
Rowan - Very cool. Personally prefer the spelling Rohan, but either way it's a cool name.
Elias - I like it a lot but only when pronounced El-ee-as, sorry.
Finn - Not too short, and I love it.

Sebastian would be my pick.

TheLivingAsheth Fri 06-Jan-17 20:25:08

Sebastian is my favourite, have always liked it since reading the Sadler's Wells books.
Tobias is second favourite. Then Finn.

Pluto30 Fri 06-Jan-17 20:26:56

Love Rowan.

The only issue is that a lot of people see Rowan as unisex/a girl's name now. I still love it for a boy though.

Otherwise, I like Tobias with your surname. Sebastian in third place. smile

MollyHuaCha Fri 06-Jan-17 20:29:25

Sebastian - love it
Tobias - love it
Rowan - ok
Elias - nice, but pronunciation will be different from different people Ell-ee-us / El-*eye*-us etc.
Finn (too short?) - yes, too short!

Mouthfulofquiz Fri 06-Jan-17 20:30:53

Rowan T(H)ardy is a great name!

thedragonflyinn Fri 06-Jan-17 20:31:18

Nice list, but don't like Rowan (I know a few female ones so that may be why).

I think they all go well with your surname but Sebastian is my favourite.
