Son is getting registered Friday and me and boyfriend agreed on Reece James for about a week or 2 and we were calling him it but now he's decided he doesn't like that name and wants to call him something else. Adam was on our list when I was pregnant but he doesn't look like an Adam and I don't really like it.

Any suggestions.

Names that are used in the family Alex, Corey, Freddie, Harry, Jordan, Luke, Owen, Riley, Thomas, William and Zack.

If you like a lovely classic name like Adam then how about peter or Christopher (nickname Kit), or just use the name Kit itself

I don't like Reece.
I like James. You could call him James Reece.

Is James the middle name or surname? If it was the middle name, can you use that for the first name?

Nightfli Wed 04-Dec-19 12:02:07

I like some of these names. James is the middle name but I don't know if it was go as a first name as the surname starts with an s and ends with an s

@Nightfli I think James Stevens is nice but James Stones doesn't work. Maybe it's because of the extra syllable.

I like Adam and James but not Reece.

James is a gorgeous classic name @Nightfli much more classic than any of my suggestions - you could always use the nickname Jamie if you’re worried about the S at the end but I really don’t think it matters too much. 90% of the time people only use your first name

How about James but call him Jamie? Would sound better with your surname. James Adam S_ _ _ _s. Nice!

You don't need a name to register the baby. Don't name him in a hurry as you might regret it.

Just don't use a name you don't like - ie don't compromise on Adam - take the time you need.

Like Leo, Fraser and Max. I also like Blake but not sure if Blake James goes. His dad said he wants to call him Jack but then we'd have to change the middle name and I don't like Jack that much.

He also likes Brandon but not sure it goes with middle and last name.
