On my third iteration of potentials now for dc2, will find out the sex when they arrive. I am NOT GOOD at settling on names!
What do you think of Cameron? Is it becoming super common? What nicknames would they get apart from Cam/Cammy?

Makes me think of David Cameron, unfortunately.

Yes, why not. Cameron (Cam).
Cammy sounds feminine.

I know a couple of Cameron's, but don't think it's a massively common name. I like it. Think they would get Cam, Cammy sounds a bit girly and like Tammy.

I love it.

I think the obvious nickname would be Cam.

Could be Ron i suppose?

I know a Cameron and liked it until David Cameron came along

I'm not mad on it, but it's perfectly nice.

CheesyChristie Sat 11-Mar-17 20:32:57

I think it's quite a nice name. But I imagine people will think you're a Tory.

Justmuddlingalong Sat 11-Mar-17 20:35:28

I have one. Not sure how common it is now, mine is in his 20s. No one has ever mentioned the Tories or David Cameron. It's a lovely name, IMHO.

I'd not even thought of the David Cameron association... May is out for a girl then too wink

My little brother (aged 15) is a Cameron. He doesn't get it shortened. It's quite a common name in Scotland for his age group - think it was most popular name in 2001, or something.

thisismadness77 Sat 11-Mar-17 20:47:59

I like it. The only Cameron I knows gets Cam occasionally which is nice.

KatieScarlett Sat 11-Mar-17 20:48:23

In Scotland it is a very very common name. I know 5 Camerons.

ChippieBeanAndHorro Sat 11-Mar-17 20:58:27

Lovely smile Makes me think of my great-granduncle Carmine. Smart, generous, brave and also very cunning man.

It's a rather fabulous name!

I do really like it and we had it on our list (it would have honoured a family member) until David Cameron came on the scene and it really spoilt it for us.

If you don't mind that association then use it.

flumpybear Sat 11-Mar-17 21:03:59

Love it!! I have a Cameron too so I'm biased lol

badg3r Sat 11-Mar-17 21:04:43

Yes it is the Scottish connection that I like, we are unfortunately unlikely to live there though so common in Scotland not a problem. I think there were two in my school year (a while ago now!) so I guess it has become more popular since I left.

Cameron / Cam is lovely. (usable again thanks to Theresa)

triskele Sat 11-Mar-17 21:15:54

It makes me think of Dave too.
But I do like the name!

ToastVacuum Sat 11-Mar-17 21:20:29

I think of David Cameron too (which puts me off). But as the years go by this won't occur to people as much.

BaymaxismyHero Sat 11-Mar-17 23:34:05

Really like it. David Cameron doesn't spring to mind.
