Looking for a name for DS2 due v soon. DS1 is Dylan Hugo (due to welsh connections and honouring grandparent), would like something that 'goes' and struggling to decide.

Options at top of list so far are:
Milo (Miles)
Archie (but not keen on Archibald, so not sure)
Charlie (but not keen on Charles, do you see a theme!)
Gus (Magnus, have family scandanavian connection as well).

Think we have the second name sorted, Ivan, after another grandparent, but scope to change that if needed.

Feeling thoroughly confused... And starting to worry we are running out of time. Thoughts, ideas appreciated.

I don't like Dylan at all sorry - I'm Welsh and it was hugely popular in the 1960s and 70s (pronounced DULL-an, an to rhyme with can, and not pronounced not Dillun).
I like Hugo a lot, and he's your son not mine so if you like Dylan then great, lots do.

I love the name Magnus, and Charlie (Charles on bc is fine). Miles is OK but not Milo and I don't like Archie, bald or otherwise.

Charlie Miles?

Thanks for all the responses so far....

Appreciate you kicking the thread off Mike, but we're not planning to change DS1's name by deedpoll, it did make me and my Welsh DH chuckle though!

Still lots to think about... But soo useful to have other opinions to add to the mix.

MikeUniformMike has had a nightmare there.

OP, Dylan was on our list, as was Milo (I also like Miles). So that would be my choice.

I really don't like Archie or Charlie (I have something against -ie names).

I like Gus and Magnus. Not sure one leads so naturally into the other, though. If I called my son a name as cool as Magnus, I think I'd just want to keep using the full name!

Love Milo and Gus.
