As the title suggests really

I'm 36 weeks pregnant with my first baby and DP and I cannot agree on any boys names - not a single one

Girls names aren't an issue we have a shortlist - Anna, Clara etc......

I love the name Robbie but DP hates it and his only suggestion has been Benjamin which I really don't like confused

I like quiet short, kind of classic names which don't date as such and can't really be shortened to a nn. Nothing too modern or popular - easy peasy I don't know why cant agree hmm

Any suggestions welcome

Ooohhh liking Adam and Luke

I also like James which is DP middle name however last two baby boys born to people I know have been called James. We're not close tho so still a possibility

Thanks- these are really helpful

I love Liam but am reluctant to use for reasons I won't go into. Not keen on Henry but warming to Harry or Harris

David is nice but loads in both sides

I'd quiet like a Scottish name but not Andrew as this is DP

I was the same with DC1, we had the perfect girls name picked out. Could not agree on a boys name at all, DH vetoed every one I liked and couldn’t come up with any he liked!! Fortunately we found a name at the 11th hour (2 days before my waters broke) so of course, we had a boy 😂😂

What about Fraser?

Carolwithane Sat 18-Nov-17 13:20:48

Hhhhhmmm Fraser?

I quite like Boyd, Ross and Innes - don't "love" any of them tho

This is so difficult! Nearly as hard as 9 months without wine grin

We were the opposite. We had a boys name chosen from when I was 5 months pregnant, but couldn't agree on a girls name. I really liked a name, but no one else did, not even my dh.
We had a boy, so it didn't matter in the end anyway. But if we have a girl in the future, I'm not sure what will happen, as I still like the same girls name..
Good luck. I hope you can come to a decision.

Scottish names I like are Hamish and Angus. I also like Nicholas and Louis.

I love the name Robbie! It's classic but not over used right now.

I know! Robbie is my absolute favourite I love it and could cry that he won't budge - usually so easy going to.......

Some excellent suggestions for alternatives tho! What do you think of Rhuaridh rather than Rory or Darragh?

WaxOnFeckOff Sat 18-Nov-17 13:59:27

I was going to say Ruaridh but thought it didn't meet the criteria smile

user1498549192 Sat 18-Nov-17 14:57:24

Anna and Clara were both on our girls' list, and we had Edward, Joseph, Hamish or Angus for a boy... Any good?

puddleduckmummy Sat 18-Nov-17 15:38:01

We had Angus picked as a boys name for DC2, but had a girl. Would use it in future if we had a boy

Jay or Jamie instead of James? Some lovely suggestions here! Congrats on your baby x

Robin instead of Robbie?

Or else - Reuben, Rupert?
