Hi all

So we are due to meet our baby boy in a couple days and we still have no name for him!

Any suggestions you have would be great, we like names that can be shortened. I.e. Theodore which could be shortened to Theo.

We are thinking middle name of David and can't seem to think of anything that goes with it!

Thank you

Alexander would seem the obvious choice? Lots of different shortening options. Or the Scottish version Alastair?

Jonathan/Jon etc

I have an Edward David and still love the name after 13 years!! He is Ed, Eddy or Edward to us and his friends. He thinks it's cool that his initials are ED (I hadn't even noticed that when I named him!!) so bank statements etc are addressed to Mr ED Surname!

My son's name is David Scott.! But I do like Alexander David.! Call him Alex for short,or maybe even Johnathan David.! John for short. Good luck and congratulations!
