Having a boy and really stuck on names.
So far the favourite is Maxwell.
I also quite like Miles and Leo but dh not so keen.
Anyone got any ideas for me?

Thank you!

Louis
Oscar
Dylan
Felix

I'd forgotten Oscar - pretty sure that was on our list in the beginning! Have had pets called Louie and Felix so they just remind me of them 😂

Thank you!

I like Maxwell so I would stick with that.

It has been a firm favourite from the beginning, we've not come across anything we've liked as much and most importantly agreed on!
Just want a few options in case I change my mind in a hormonal haze when he is here smile

its a shame he doesnt like Miles, I love that one. Maxwell is fine but he will end up as Max.

Miles is for butlers. And Leo just makes me think of Twin Peaks. Go with Maxwell.

I greatly prefer both Miles and Leo to Maxwell.

I have a Max and it’s the cutest boys’ name ever. What’s not to love?
He will get Max not Maxwell though

Elliot,
Jasper,
Tobias
All names that seem similar to Maxwell to me. I like Maxwell though so would probably stick with that.

klaw87 Sun 29-Oct-17 11:28:25

I actually like names that can be shortened - I love Max as a standalone name and dh likes maxwell hence why we have agreed for once wink
I really like Tobias and Elliot but dh has vetoed!

It's looking like Maxwell will still be the one that sticks smile

I'm not a fan of Maxwell, but really like Max, and that is 100% what he will end up as so yes go for it - great name.

I quite like Leonard which can be shortened to Leo or Len. Also Gareth and Frederick (Fred).

I like Maxwell and Max, so I'd go for that!

I like Leo too, but that's no good if your DH isn't keen. Oscar is nice too. I'd go for Oscar or Maxwell and just choose between the two when he arrives.

If you both agree on Maxwell stick with it, don't look any further.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 29-Oct-17 20:21:17

I agree, love Max.

Boys names are SO HARD! if there's only one you both like, you should stick with that. We had the same issue and stuck with it smile

klaw87 Sun 29-Oct-17 22:37:04

Thank you everyone, those saying to stick are probably right! Some other fab suggestions though so thank you 😊

Not keen at all on Maxwell but love Maximus.
Leo is ok

Love Oscar
How about-
