We're pretty much settled on Constantine, but am interested to see if a dark horse emerges that we've not thought of...

We also like Alexander, Nicholas and Theodore- hopefully that gives a sense of the style we're going for!

Are you Greek?
They are all Greek Royal family names.

CurlyWurlyTwirly Wed 04-Sep-19 10:26:16

Ex King Constantine of Greece’s nickname in the family is Tiny.

Goostacean Wed 04-Sep-19 10:28:58

Haha, we're not Greek, no! Although the name needs to work in multiple languages, which Greek names are often good for, I suppose!

Evil Kermit???

in Germany I was at a baby group and a woman brought her baby and toddler called Constantine. he was a boy. I think it's nice and unusual.

I like Constantine!

Pinkstulips Wed 04-Sep-19 10:48:11

The German boy was probably Konstantin!

I like it.

Makes me think of Killing Eve! Not in a good or bad way though just neutral.

Its a name I considered for my son but spelt Constantijn

Goostacean Wed 04-Sep-19 11:35:09

Thanks, we like it too smile I was just wondering if anyone who had shortlisted it would mind sharing the rest of their shortlist, for example?

BroomstickOfLove Wed 04-Sep-19 11:44:43

Constantine was on my shortlist for DS and his middle name is Alexander. The name I wish I'd actually called him is Clovis. Other names on the shortlist were Hugo, Caspar, Sebastian, Patrick and Quentin, I think. He's 10, so it was a long time ago.

Caspian, Lysander

I think it’s truly awful... sorry

Similar names that I like include
Theodore (although very popular now)
Quentin
Caspar
Thaddeus
Magnus

Thanks, some nice suggestions! None yet that beat it for us, I think...

No worries - no name will suit everyone's tastes!

Ptolemy
Aristotle

Maybe you would like royal Persian names? Cyrus or Darius. Another name that could also fit is Xavier. Some other names
Hector
Leonidas
Leander

Also like Conrad, Fabian and Augustus.

Temperance

Possibly you have thought of this name, Valentine.

TildaKauskumholm Wed 04-Sep-19 15:06:35

Justinian , Augustus, Lucius

Goostacean Wed 04-Sep-19 16:17:19

Leonidas and Valentine were there, but Leo is too popular for me and Valentine sounds very feminine to me in English? Some great suggestions, thank you everyone!

Leollan
Lysander
Leander
Christian
