Second boy (was sure he was a she before scan so girl's name all chosen blush) first born has a good solid name - Samuel James (Sam except when he's naughty!)
I've found it a bit tricky to bond with this baby and a name would help. We think we've settled on Flynn Fitzgerald (husband has very red hair and is half Irish and the name means 'son of a red haired man') what do people think? Just scared after giving first son such a 'solid' name to go a bit rogue!

Doesn't Fitzgerald mean son of Gerald?
Flynn is a good name. Nothing wrong with solid!

Flynn is pretty solid, and I love Fitzgerald.

From an outside POV they're of equal weight.

Fitzgerald is an homage to my favourite author - wouldn't have had the balls to do it first baby!!! I think it balances the short Flynn too. It was going to be Flynn Thomas but it didn't scan so well when said - I may be wrong!

It isn't rogue at all, don't worry. They're both normal, good names.

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:04:21

It's the Funn bit that means son of a red haired man.

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:04:59

Fynn even - just found a possible auto correct issue to bear in mind!!!

I like it

It's fine but depends on your surname.

3littlebadgers Fri 14-Apr-17 19:09:33

As long as your surname doesn't begin with S

Logan - totally outing blush

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:09:46

Love it!!!

Fitzgerald is AMAZING!!

Flynn goes beautifully with Sam I think.

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:12:58

Thankyou all - you're really giving me confidence in my choice. Husband already referring to bump as Flynn. I think I needed a little more encouragement!

PlymouthMaid1 Fri 14-Apr-17 19:15:28

Love them both.

I like Fitzgerald a lot, but not keen on Flynn.
What about
Rory or Rufus instead?

Top name smile

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:17:55

I was going to call first baby Rufus and it was mercilessly shot down at my work and became a joke sad and I am close to a lady with her own Rory but I do like it still. The red haired bit won my husband over - it's his defining feature!

Cagliostro Fri 14-Apr-17 19:18:43

It's beautiful smile

AdaColeman Fri 14-Apr-17 19:26:18

When I posted, I'd not seen your post about DH already calling bump Flynn....
It's always good to have both parents enthusiastic about a name, so it's sure to be a grand name for your baby boy!
Hope all goes well for you Jelly. thanks bear

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:28:29

Thankyou so much everyone! You've made my day and my mind up - Flynn Fitzgerald Logan it will be grin

Laquila Fri 14-Apr-17 19:30:17

Love it, also love Rufus though - why was that shot down?! Perfectly good name!

Jellymuffin Fri 14-Apr-17 19:31:06

Apparently it's a dogs name - lots of woof woofing soured it for me sad

It's lovely! Very best wishes.
