We are really struggling with names for our baby boy, both first and surname! My surname is Couch and DH's is Curtis.

Any suggestions??

Have you got any names listed? That would help people to give suggestions.

I prefer Curtis to Couch, tbh.

Curtis is a more attractive sur name imo.
1 syllable name with 2 syllable surname sounds good.
And 2 syllable first name with 1 syllable last name

Curtis is also a first name though so that could maybe be a middle name.

Both Curtiss-Couch is nice
or You could always mesh eg Curch

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 07-Nov-17 20:31:53

Oh good idea about using Curtis's as his middle name.
Eg Alexander Curtiss Couch

Curtiss-Couch is fine as a surname.

Give the baby your surname or double barrel.

I actually love this! Thank you!

Alexander Curtis Couch I mean

Curtis is a much nicer surname than Couch.

I'd ditch Couch and go with Curtis.

Babies should have the same surname as the parent who will be the main contact at nursery and school as that parent will get called Mr/Mrs Child'sSurname.

Going against the grain, I prefer Couch as it's more unusual. I don't think Curtis is a particularly nice sounding word.

You could also use Curtis as a middle name as suggested, so another reason to go with Couch.

Alexander Curtis Couch v good, he'll end up as Alex Couch which is also quite nice sounding, smart and snappy.
