He's gorgeous but none of the names we liked seem to fit him. Middle name is Strachan.

He has loads of thick dark hair, and a really round chubby face.

I have no suggestions but he is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations flowers

He's super gorgeous. Congrats. smile

Do you have any criteria? Do you care about popularity? Any particular origin of name you're after? Might be able to give you some ideas then.

Robin, Francis, Rowan, Joseph or Jophiel.

He's lovely! Congratulations. flowers

Not too fussed about popularity or origins. We had picked out Caleb and Elliot, but now he's here they just don't feel right. We're in Scotland and ds1 and ds2 both have relatively common names. Top 50 for their birth years, both rose to top ten names the following years.

I think he suits Caleb of the two you've picked.

But I thought he looked like a Reuben when I saw him.

Or an Edward. smile

Oooh, Rowan is nice. I thought he looked like a Gordon but then read middle name Strachan grin

Congrats, he is gorgeous!

My first thought was Alexander

Gorgeous, congrats!

I'd say Caleb suits him but how about...
Jacob / Jake

I meant to add that Keir means dark so is very fitting.

Congrats - he's a little cutie.

What about:


I think Caleb suits him though smile

Chelazla Fri 13-Jan-17 09:27:56

I lovvvvve Elliot. Super cute bubba by the way!

Marlboroandmalbec34 Fri 13-Jan-17 09:28:40

Reuben! He is lovely congrats

PinkBunnyOnesieOnOrder Fri 13-Jan-17 09:31:21

Congratulations 💐 He is gorgeous xx

I think Caleb is a great name.

Personally, I don't think newborns suit any real name, they seem far too small for such a big thing! Still more suited to peanut/bean/button etc which aren't exactly 'Lawyer' names 😬

He will have it for life, no huge hurry to decide, if others are pressing for a name tell them to STFU be patient & you'll let them know when you've decided.

I can just about smell him from here...mmmmm

Rory, Rufus or Digory.

I came to say Elliott! He's totally gorgeous, enjoy him whatever name you choose.

UnderTheGaydar Fri 13-Jan-17 09:36:38


He's a beaut!

Forkrightorf Fri 13-Jan-17 09:47:20

That child is clearly a Max smile
Elliot is lovely too, why have you gone off of it?
He is absolutely beautiful, congratulations flowers

Beautiful baby. I think he could be a...


Enjoy him!
