If I like these girls names, which boy names might I like?

I feel like I’ve seen every name in the world and we can’t seem to settle on on that we both like!

We’ve settled on Connie for a girl, one we both love. We also had Margot, Maeve, Claudia and Fern on the list.

For boys he has contributed only Edward which there is nothing wrong with but not for me. Eddies and Teds are ten a penny in our area so I don’t feel that compromising and using a nickname is an option.

I like Cassius, Louis and Henry.

We did both like Chester but it doesn’t go with our surname which begins with an R.

Any ideas welcome!

I don't know any Connies but know a couple of Margots, one has a brother called Rupert and one has a brother called Sebastian. Do either of those appeal?

Great suggestions, thank you everyone!

Gregory is lovely but has already been vetoed I’m afraid!
I like Marcus, I will suggest it to him.

Lots of lovely others that are unusable for various reasons, mostly children of close friends. DP will poo poo anything near the names of aunties Margaret’s neighbours cat or other such close relations! hmm

I LOVE Reggie but it’s been firmly vetoed I’m afraid. Gregory and Gregor would be brilliant ‘long names’ to Reggies nickname

Would you be saving Connie for a future possible DD?

If baby will be the only one, you could use Conrad.

Or Claudius.

What about Ferdinand?

It's got more popular now (don't know if that'll put you off...) but I immediately thought of Arthur.

Sorry everyone, it’s been a while!

More great suggestions, thank you!

Still struggling with boys, @Ellmau this is definitely the last DC so there is no saving for the future! @MrsGilly1 I’d never heard the name Elias til recently but would you believe that there is now 2 in DD1s class and one in DD2’s?! And it’s a VERY small village school- they’ve all appeared at once!
