Having finally settled on a name for DD we've just found out its a shy baby and is actually a DS blush

I have a Fox and an Atticus already.

Whoa!! Those are long lists 😄 this might be easier than I thought!

Dd was going to be Eilidh, DH is suggesting we stick with that kind sound and go with Elias or Elijah... He's also floated Alucard hmm

Beachedwh4le Wed 15-Mar-17 15:58:22

Love Rafe, but I'm not sure how it's actually spelt? I know a Ralph who gets called ralf instead of rafe (if that makes sense) raphe or just rafe and then there's no confusion?

flowers thanks for all the suggestions

Elias is really nice, and I love Rafe. It can be spelt Ralph or Rafe but I think the latter is much clearer and just as legit.

SavoyCabbage Wed 15-Mar-17 17:40:00

Or Raef.

My nephew is a Rafe. I was surprised by the spelling at first but got used to it very quickly!

Love fox & atticus! What about Dashiel?

Gaaaah Wed 15-Mar-17 17:54:38

Jago?

ThoraGruntwhistle Wed 15-Mar-17 17:56:22

Alucard? I really hope he's trying to be funny confused

Rockaby Wed 15-Mar-17 18:04:18

I know of a little Athelstan. They shorten it to Attie.

LouKout Wed 15-Mar-17 18:07:25

Alucard sounds like a medicine.

Rockaby Wed 15-Mar-17 18:21:26

Just realised Attie is probably a bit too much like Atticus!

Beachedwh4le Wed 15-Mar-17 21:29:39

Alucard is definitely a joke, I think he just likes to keep my blood pressure up!

I'm quite taken by rafe/raef/raphe also caleb is a nice sweet name.

Our Atticus often gets Atti so we will probably stay away from A names

Fitz

strawberrypenguin Wed 15-Mar-17 21:38:22

How about Rufus?

SchnitzelVonCrumb Wed 15-Mar-17 21:42:17

I love Rafe.

In New Zealand Ralph is only ever pronounced " Ralf" hence I would always spell Rafe... but I wouldn't in the UK

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 15-Mar-17 23:27:46

Orson
Jarvis
Cosmo
Tycho
Erasmus
Troy

PatriciaHolm Wed 15-Mar-17 23:31:44

I'm assuming he's a Hellsing fan...

Tobias? Nate/Nathaniel?

Gummibears Thu 16-Mar-17 08:58:15

Love Atticus and Fox! How about

Quentin
Orson
Magnus

Twoevils Thu 16-Mar-17 09:01:22

I know a Raife. Cute name.

meettherussians Thu 16-Mar-17 09:33:47

Love your sons names OP. First thought was definitely an "o" name, Love Orson too or something with O ending- Milo perhaps? Congrats on 3 lovely boys, you'll be well taken care off forever!
