I had said I wanted a boy from the beginning but had thought of girls names that went well together a lot more than boys names. I haven't really got any ideas and I end up going off any names I think of after a couple of days, or if i say it too many times.
I've also gone through family member names but I'm not really up for my baby's name to be Gary (dad), Barry (grandad) as they aren't the nicest.
I like Callum at the moment but really have no ideas. Any help with names people think go well together would be great thank you. I would prefer his name to be a short name,that can't be made into something else but don't really mind at the moment as I'm completely stuck haha. Thanks x
<looks down at tiny twin boys Barry and Gary lovingly> kidding, I don't have twin boys and they're not called Barry and Gary.
I would say started with the ONS top 100 names from last year (well, 2015 as 2016 isn't published until the summer). Or the full list, and just jot down the ones that stand out to you, that you like even if you wouldn't use it. It'll give you a good starting point for what you like/dislike.
It's sort of annoying as every name I come up with, my OH seems to hate, and the other way round. We still have enough time to make a decision but I thought it would be best to start getting ideas now 😁x
@blondehair my parents say they love my name and they want my son to have an equally unusual name. I have spent my entire life responding to anything that sounds like it, it being spelt wrong and a patient recently told me "your mum must really dislike you with a name like that!" Thanks...
@nursebickypegs some people come out with proper horrible things about people names! I think it's good when people have unusual names. When I went to school, there was always really common names that just end up really boring because so many people are called it!
I really like mickey, I think it's cute... I haven't told many people about it at the moment as I probably will change my mind but it's defo one of my favourites at the minute and everyone seems to like it as well😊x
Me and DH wanted something not particularly common but nothing ridiculous either so we have an Arron. I'm currently pregnant with DC2 and am praying it's a girl purely because there's just no boys names that I like
Two of my friends just had boys and they are called Evan and Pete
