...what else might I like?

I am sold on Ambrose for our baby due imminently, but DH not quite sure - just wondering what else there might be out there we haven't thought of.

Any suggestions?

I always recommend www.nymbler.com in these times. It finds names similar to ones you already like, and you can keep refining your preferences.

Aubrey

Or there's Emrys, the Welsh form of Ambrose.

I really like Ambrose though I feel it more of an older persons name (not a bad thing - my dcs have traditonal names)

Do you like Francis ?
Reuben
Issac
Dominic

MammieBear Mon 21-Aug-17 14:13:03

Ambrosia would be the girl version of that name it means heavenly however it may be too similar to custard for you so with that in mind.....
Boy's :
Lincoln
Dexter
Leighton
Alcott
Arlo

Girl's :
Adelaide
Harper
Aubrey (can be Boy as well)
Everley
Willa

Well, Benedict is lovely.

I also like Toby and Tobias.

Had we had more sons those would have been my choice, along with Nicholas.

grufallosfriend Mon 21-Aug-17 15:38:05

Ambrose is a great name - strong and classic.

grufallosfriend Mon 21-Aug-17 15:42:48

I once met a Benedict who got teased with
Bendy Dick blush

That's put me off the name!

Namechangeblock Mon 21-Aug-17 15:46:21

I will check out Nymbler, thanks for the tip off Parrot. I like Francis but I have a BIL called that and love Dominic - it was a contender til we realised how bad it sounds with the surname!

You're right *grufalo" bendy dick is bad...

Maybe DH will be persuaded Ambrose is the one!

squoosh - Wigbert?! I've never heard of that name :O

squoosh Mon 21-Aug-17 18:20:56

It's a bit left field isn't it? 😅

Ambrose is a monk's name and there was a monk called Wigbert so I thought I'd slide it in there!

Namechangeblock Mon 21-Aug-17 23:36:56

Wigbert is a monk too far for me! grin

Why would you like Ambrose

parrotseatemall Tue 22-Aug-17 06:55:23

Because it's a nice well-established name?

I know one adult Ambrose who wears it well, and it also makes me think of Cousin Ambrose from My Cousin Rachel.
