Hello,

Our first born is named Frederick, (Fred) and we've just found out that our second is also a boy.

I cannot think of a single boys name that I really like (but did have a list of girls)! So am looking for inspiration please.

Thanks!

Eleanor
Beatrice
Betsy

Sidney
Christian or Christopher
Philip

IMO, don't use names with Frederick that sound gaelic or modern/made up. Ewan does not go with the name!

Being Danish I can not see Frederick without also "hearing" Christian (the last 20 Kings 19 have been one of the two currently a reigning queen )

I do think Frederick and Christian goes well together.

Ewan, Rupert and Theodore are all really nice imo. smile
Did you check the initials / make sure there won't be any unfortunate meanings?

summeryet Sat 12-Oct-19 15:13:56

@MissHenty it's so annoying, girls names were all sorted!!

Liking Ewan, Rupert and Theodore (Teddy).

Thanks all!

Welcome to the club of never getting to use a girls’ name 🤣 @summeryet

What names in here so far do you like? I’ll think of some more

I know someone with siblings Freddie and Laurence

My first thought was also Lawrence, or maybe Nicolas?

Thanks so much! There are a few great suggestions in here. We generally aren't fans of anything that it super popular, and the surname begins with 'S', so keen to avoid first names with the same initial.

Do you mind about popularity @summeryet ?
Do you have any kind of names you like but can’t use? Want a bit more to go with.

Initial suggestions:

Milo/miles
Rex
Alexander
Felix
Rudy/Rudi
Alexander
Barnaby
