Please help with a name!

We had a first and middle name sorted but OH has changed his mind at the last minute because his friend doesn't like the name--hmm--e----ven though not everyone will like whatever name we decide anyway so it's annoying.

We don't like the too common Josh's, James etc but don't want something people don't know how to pronounce/never heard of.

Middle name will still probably be Alex.

He's due in 3 weeks and it's stressing me out.

Thanks everyone.

What was the original name?
Also what names do you like except for Alex?

A bit of an idea on names you do like might be helpful!

But to start us off maybe:

Caspar
Frank
Oakley
Angus
Maxim
Kit
Esa/Issa

This one is easy. You stick with the name that your OH has changed his mind on because he was silly enough to mention it to a friend, or you demand that he come to you with a shortlist of names and you can give your opinions on them until you find one you like.

If you both like Alex enough to definitely keep as a middle name have you thought about using it as a first name? smile

Although I agree you shouldn't change it!! I couldn't give a flying fig how many people don't like the boys name I have chosen, he is my son and I will name him the name me and DH love

Come back OP!

Oh no, don't saddle the poor mite with a name like Oakley!

My DH had a last minute wobble on our DS2's middle name a couple of days before I was induced. I told him he had to come up with a list of alternatives for me to pick from. I suggest you do the same, although if you were set on the original name definitely push for that!
