John - a solid name but very unusual these days

What about Michael? I think it's a similar 'sort' of name to Peter and John

Don't like Carson, sorry (surname-as-first-name thing)

Liam & Peter.

Liam is my son's middle name and I had a pet ferret of that name so am voting for that

I'm going to say Carson! I know people can be funny about surnames as first names, but it's nice and unusual. Not what I'd go for myself but I would like it if I met one.

I'd go for John second. I've been teaching almost ten years in secondary schools and have only taught one. Liam next, then Peter.

John then Liam followed by Peter. Am really not a fan of Carson at all.

John, closely followed by Peter.
Then Liam. I don't like Carson I'm afraid.

I really don't like Carson... (Reminds me of Ben Carson, tbh.)

I do like John and Liam. smile

Carson is cool very different to your other suggestions though...John second of your list but none of them are cool type names to my head ...

There is also Karson which i think is the Scandinavian spelling.....

John or Peter

I like them all, but particularly John and Peter.

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 18-Mar-17 15:20:15

My favourite is Peter, then John.

John then Peter. Not keen on Liam. Don't like Carson at all sounds like carcinoma cancer

Octopus37 Sat 18-Mar-17 19:24:35

Liam, but then I am biased cause I have a Liam

Fozzleyplum Sat 18-Mar-17 21:28:38

Peter - but then I'm biased because I have one! 2nd choice John, which might well have been an option if I'd had another boy (Richard was another name on our list).

I don't like Liam or Carson. There's a lot to be said, IMO, for having a non-trendy, but very well-known name. It won't date or label your DS, and no one will wonder about pronunciation or spelling.

John or Carson. John is classic and strong. Carson is a bit too unusual for me, but I love the name.
