I am really struggling to find a name i like, i like some such as Ashley, Tate and Harley and Ray but feel they are all not quite right. I guess all these names are sort of boyish which i like but don't like how "american / trendy" (no offence intended) they sound.

Any suggestions would be great

Is baby here? If not don't worry. If baby is here, only worry of he's a few weeks old! I named my daughter at birth, she looked lie her name (was not high on my list either)

I've only met boys with those names so will guess you're looking for boys' names.

If you like the "y" sound at the end of a name, how about Toby, Charlie, Henry, Harry, Sidney, Stanley, Harvey, Freddie, Archie?

Or what about Oliver, Theo, Peter, Felix, Sam, Vincent, Daniel?

How can people think the op's original names are for a girl?! They are clearly boys names.

MrsMeeseeks Tue 04-Apr-17 11:41:31

Because she said she likes boyish names.

"Boyish" could also mean OP feels the names would suit a young boy, rather than an older man.

Sunshineandlaughter Tue 04-Apr-17 14:12:54

Oh I took that to mean masculine - see your point!

Hopefully the OP will let us know either way soon grin
