Stuck for boys names

(16 Posts)

I have a list as long as my arm for girls (favourites being Emily and Iris) but a very short one for boys.

I generally like traditional male names with a strong short form - the kind of name that makes you think “dependable bloke”

Eg

Thomas/ Tom
Andrew/ Andy
Samuel/Sam
I also like Harry but not keen on David/ Dave.

I do like Alisdair/Ali/Al but DH isn’t keen as it’s his bosses name. And he’s yet to be persuaded on any of MH other suggestions (while refusing to make any of his own)

Can I get a few more suggestions please before I file for divorce?!

Sorry forgot to say that Alexander/ Alex/ Sawney (the lowland Scots version of Sandy) is on my list.

My DS is a Harri, short for Harrison (also the Welsh spelling of Harry).

NB his 'proper' name is Harrison but we call him Harri.

Ruairidh/Roo
Gregor/Greg
Roderick/Roddy

Or just Keir? Strong short and traditional.

I agree re Dave, but Davey is okay I think. Although I know a few who are always David.
