I have searched for what feels like forever. I have not found even one name that I can imagine for my son and it’s really starting to get me down. The only name I remotely like is Arthur but it doesn’t feel like the one and I’m pretty sure the Royals are going to use it. I like traditional names that aren’t too popular (another issue with Arthur) any ideas ladies sad

Could you use a family name, instead? At least it would be personal to you even if it's not perfect feel in other ways.

Can you say what girl names you like, for comparison?

Any other names that seem like they should qualify but you don't like?

Albert and Archie have a similar feel to me

Traditional but outside the top 100:

The only men’s names we really have to use are Simon and John and neither of those feel right.

Girls names I like are Nora, Eliza, Mabel, Evelyn, Nell, Iris, Betsy, Florence, Annie, Rosa...the list goes on! I like so many girls names!

I do like Albert and Archie but feel they are quite popular where I live x

Nora???? Really? Has that come back? I get quite a lot of the old names are pretty/traditional, but Nora???

I love Mabel and Rosa for a girl.

Lulue45 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:34:26

Umm yes, it’s a name I like? I’m looking for a boys name so my girls list is irrelevant I was just letting PP know my naming style. But thanks for your (unnecessary) input.

If you like Eliza for a girl.. Ezra for a boy?
I like Scottish boys names best as they tend to be a bit less common without being too “out there”

TeeBee I have thought about Frank...I quite like Franklin but it’s a acquaintance surname so think it would be a bit weird.

James. Everyone likes James.

Lulue45 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:36:50

Yes I do quite like Ezra actually! Do you think it’s too ‘trendy?’

TeeBee Fri 23-Feb-18 12:37:04

I think a tiny Frank would be very cute.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Was only agreeing that she liked a couple of your names.. confused

Op was referring to pupchewsleg’s comment.

Trooperslane2 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:39:53

I met a lovely Ezra on holiday.

and Frank is great.

I love Nora too

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 23-Feb-18 12:40:10

James is perfect, classic, suits through every stage of life. You can't fault it. However as op doesn't want a name that's too popular. James is probably the last name she should choose.

My bad I didn’t see the post from @ pupchewsleg. I’m in the same boat at you and need a boys name - don’t like any 😩 so I’ll be keeping a watch on this thread for inspiration if that’s ok

ifigoup Fri 23-Feb-18 12:41:53

If you like Ezra then how about


GeorgieTheGorgeousGoat Fri 23-Feb-18 12:44:13

Strange though it probably depends on area. I have a teenage one and we know very few with the same name. I could count on one hand.

TeeBee Fri 23-Feb-18 12:46:17

I love Gabe or Gabriel.
Alvie is a very old name but cute and unusual.
