Lovely baby boy Is now here! The trouble is I seem to find myself disliking all the names we had on the shortlist now....

I love the name Rowan but we already have a Rose- is this too similar? If it is too similar what on earth else do we call him?!

Chaffinch4 Sun 29-Oct-17 17:19:45

Congratulations!

I think Rowan and Rose are OK together. What else was on the shortlist?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sun 29-Oct-17 17:20:13

Yes they are too similar IMO.
Can we see a pic of him to see what would suit him and obviously as an excuse to see the new squishy gorgeous man in your lifegrin

How about Ewan/Euan?

BikeRunSki Sun 29-Oct-17 17:22:40

A bit too similar.

Amos?

Rowan is a bit too similar to Rose.

How about Rory instead?

I have a Roan and a Ruby.

I actually think Rowan is fine alongside Rose. If you like it, I'd stick with it.

Ioan?

Like Jude but husband has vetoed. He likes Fraser- would thus be strange without Scottish connections? Keir and Joseph were also on shortlist. Here he is....

Ropsleybunny Sun 29-Oct-17 18:09:52

Jonah suits him. He utterly gorgeous, congratulations.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sun 29-Oct-17 18:13:04

Oh you've been blessed with a little beauty. He's absolutely delicious
He looks like a Joel to me.

MyBrilliantDisguise Sun 29-Oct-17 18:14:16

He's gorgeous and looks just like a Louis to me!

Chaffinch4 Sun 29-Oct-17 18:28:12

Fraser is a great name and no, I don't think you need to have Scottish links at all.

SilverAndCold Sun 29-Oct-17 18:30:59

I think Keir really suits him, also sounds lovely with Rose.

Threeandabit Sun 29-Oct-17 18:32:12

Judd?

I love the name Joseph.

pilates Sun 29-Oct-17 18:40:43

Gorgeous, Joseph I think

Congratulations 💐

Seti Sun 29-Oct-17 18:47:08

I like Rowan and Rose.

What about Jed or Ned?

I don’t like Jonah as a Jonah is a jinx around here.

Moonflower12 Sun 29-Oct-17 19:06:39

I like Rowan and I think it would suit him. It goes fine with Rose.

BernardBlacksHangover Sun 29-Oct-17 19:10:48

He's so cute op!

I think he'd suit Keir or Joseph.

MikeUniformMike Sun 29-Oct-17 19:18:57

He's gorgeous.
