Have only got Samuel, Luc and Felix on our list so far, none of which seem quite right. Don't want anything TOO French in case we (or he!) ever move back to the UK! Have got about 6 weeks left (hopefully)Thanks!

I really liked Arnaud (just pronounced ARno) when I was pg. My x hated it though.

What about Grégoire or Téo?

Some great ones! I love Jacques, but already have DS1 - Jake. Matthieu I like a lot - is it used in the UK much? Arnaud is pretty cool, but I can see DH hating it too...will put it to him over dinner...

Would have to be Louis though

jenpet Thu 10-Jul-08 18:41:44

I love Theo too, but am put off a bit as there are already 2 in DS1's primary school of 50 children. Leon is fab, I remember the film, but it also makes me think of Leon the pig farmer! Still, plenty to discuss this evening...thanks grin

Nicolas we love, and it's a "family" name too, but will be a middle name I think as in our area it has met with frowns due to unpopularity of Mr Sarkozy....

Sparkletastic Thu 10-Jul-08 18:44:06

Oh yes - pig farmer not so good... Both will be distant memories by DS2's school days though wink
