Name for fourth boy!

DS4 due imminently.

We already have Rufus, Maxim (Max) and Ivo.

We’re a bit stumped this time! Names we like but don’t feel we can use include:

James — too many in the family/friend circle already
Jago — too close to Ivo?
Otto — ditto
Magnus — too close to Rufus and/or Maxim
Wilfrid (Wilf) — husband not too keen
Yann — bit too “continental”?
Henry — friend’s son
Dashiell — bit too “out there”?

We also quite like Samson... not 100% on it though.

Any more ideas or feedback please?

@Reilti good luck and don’t forget to let us know what you decide to call him.

Yeh that dark web thing about Tor has totally put me off any Tor names

Also Tori as a nickname (depending on your political preferences) could really grate

I vote Casper

MissHenty Sun 03-Nov-19 12:11:35

Yes agree with @IggyAce please come back and let us know!! How many weeks are you @Reilti

Caspar vote here! 🙋‍♀️

Please choose Horace. It is the best name EVER.

Hector is the best name ever. Closely followed by Roland.

Ooh Asa, I love that one and had totally forgotten about it! On the list it goes... grin

@MissHenty I’m 38+2! But have been late with two out of three so far, so not getting my hopes up just yet...

Reilti Sun 03-Nov-19 20:37:21

But yes, I’ll update when he’s here smile

Samson is a fantastic name! Hope that grows on you some more

I love Dashiell! Think Samson is a really strong classic name too

I’m not sure if there was a Tobias in there? I like lots of the names that have been suggested. The one name I liked when I was pregnant was Locke. It was the name of a character in a novel I saw advertised.( There was also a singer called Locke Essien I think. )The other name this made me think of was Leif... and when I was very young there was a singer called Leif Garrett who had a big hit called “ I was made for dancing” grin. Ha ha sorry for being a saddo. My DH hated all my suggestions for boys names so luckily we had a girl.

Wonder what he's called? I was going to suggest Sidney ( Sid)

PlantPotting Tue 10-Dec-19 21:06:40

Did you pick a name @Reilti

bxua Tue 10-Dec-19 22:43:51

@Reilti update??

calamityjam Tue 10-Dec-19 22:46:24

I love either Gabriel (Gabe) or Gage.

Reilti Wed 11-Dec-19 16:20:04

Hi everyone! Sorry, I thought I’d already come back and updated. Not sure what happened there (sleep deprivation perhaps!)

He’s here and he’s gorgeous. I’m only a bit biased wink

We chose the name Caspar Fabian Wells (two middle names, both family names) in the end. Love it. He’s called Baby Cap mostly at the moment.

Thank you for all your wonderful input and good wishes!

Woooo excellent choice and thank you for updating
Congratulations @Reilti
