Help please! Which is your favourite out of:
Holden for a boy?

Will have a normal British surname beginning with E


I'm sure lots of people will hate some/all of these so I'd be really grateful if they'd just decline to comment rather than tell me how awful they all are

Roscoe! Never heard it before

Could shorten to Ross if ever need to nag him smile

Cherrypi Wed 17-May-17 11:17:51

Roscoe. It is the name of Lewis Hamilton's dog though.

Flynn, although tbh none of these names particularly appeal to me

SuperBeagle Wed 17-May-17 11:23:08

Love Flynn.

Also like Roscoe a lot. Does sound like an Australian nickname for Ross, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Not a fan of Holden at all. To me, it's a car make or that whiny prick from Catcher in the Rye.

I really like Roscoe.

But say it aloud a few times just to make sure it goes with your surname as in my head I automatically had it as Elliot and the vowel to vowel sounds blends to much and becomes one big long noise, although that could be my Glasgow accent grin

Flynn is lovely smile Not sure on Holden or Roscoe

DrizzleHair Wed 17-May-17 11:24:53

Thanks for votes so far and thanks for not being mean to me!

I think Roscoe is my fave but I also love Flynn. I've added Holden back in after I vetoed it - it's DP's favourite, so he might be upset you don't like it (*muahahahah*)

Holden is an Australian make of car. Roscoe sounds like a character in an American TV programme, in fact I think there was a Roscoe in Dukes of Hazard.
So Flynn gets my vote.

Bythebeach Wed 17-May-17 11:25:51

Absolutely love Flynn!

katiegg Wed 17-May-17 11:27:13

I like Roscoe smile

Flynn would be my second choice, i'm not a huge fan of Holden though.

LorLorr2 Wed 17-May-17 11:28:02

Hmm out of those, Flynn and Holden are more like surnames in my mind so I'd say Roscoe, however there was a dog called Roscoe in a tv show I watched in childhood. So I'd be inclined to call him Ross which is a bit more of a 'human name' and a nice unique one these days too smile

OutnumberedbyFurchesters Wed 17-May-17 11:28:48

Flynn smile

Or Roscoe, though it does sound like an american sitcom.

octoberfarm Wed 17-May-17 11:30:17

Flynn and Holden are by far my favorites.

Avasmummy16 Wed 17-May-17 11:30:20

Another vote for Flynn, but I also like Roscoe as it's different and I don't think that in many years to come that people will remember that Lewis Hamilton's dog had same namesmile

GinGeum Wed 17-May-17 11:32:05

I like Flynn! In my head, your surname is Edwards, and Flynn Edwards sounds lovely. Of course, that may not be your surname grin

DrizzleHair Wed 17-May-17 11:34:22

Not far off the surname GinGeum, definitely the right kind of sound.

I'm torn between Flynn and Roscoe now - I don't mind going for something which fewer people like, but I want to avoid something everyone hates.

I had not heard about Lewis's dog. Hmmm. Will take that into consideration forget it during labour

Does anyone have the Breaking Bad association with Flynn? I don't want my name choices to scream 'I watch too much TV'!
