We are having trouble coming up with a boys name, and have just found out we are expecting a boy. Would love to hear what your boys name shortlist is as we are struggling for inspiration! Thanks xxx

Like William, Edward and Arthur as middle names but wanted something a little more unusual for the first as our surname is incredibly common.

The thing about name lists is that you are inclined to put on them names that you think you like but when you are faced with an actual baby you just think are a bit ridiculous smile

Names I've used or would still use are:

Gregor
Struan
Keir
Kerr
Craig
Alastair
