Any ideas?? I am only 25 weeks BTW, but we have had all the other Dcs named by 21 weeks!!!

Last name begins with 'J', so that's all my fave names out the window, eg..Jake, Jay, Jackson, George.

We have quite traditional names for other DCs, eg.Oliver.

I am not keen on having a 'B' name (as in B.J), but DHs' fave name is Benjamin. I am not sure.

I really like the name Logan, but DH is not keen..

Any ideas welcome, TIA smile

You see, I do like Matthew, and Lucas. But Matthew is an ex, and Lucas is my friend's DS.

-Am liking Edward, will see what DH says. smile
-Thomas is my brother.
-Henry, I can't go there as it's a long running joke between me and DH!!grin
-Peter and Richard are names of family members.
-Elliot is ok...

Oooh, thanks will have a look at them!!
I do have a name book, but to me, when reading them, they are just words on a page IYSWIM?

DH refuses to think about any other names, he just says, give me names you like and we'll discuss them! I think he thinks he'll get his own way with Benjamin!

We both liked Logan but went off it when we realised it was Wolverine's (X-Men) real name... Thinking about it again now, I'm not sure why that put me off so much...Might add it back to our list! grin

What about...

Edward
Edgar
Albert
Harris
Elliot
Elias

...Or keep trying to convince him on Logan!

Oh yes, Rasputin!! But maybe a little inapropriate to call your son after a hot sexy film character..!!grin

I did like it before I watched X-men though. (Only watched them last year)

Timothy, Nathan, Nathaniel, Edward, Daniel, Michael, Sebastian, Henry.

Benjamin is a good name though!
Logan is nice but it depends on how traditional the other names are and whether or not you want to stick to it.
Both our kids got the name we liked most before they were born as their middle name and a completely different one as their first name after we saw them!
For us we didn't want a name ending in a/ah etc as our surname ends er but sounds like ah, and it just didn't go well together! We also didn't want to go down the family names line, it makes it harder finding one you both like that goes with the surname!

Personally I like Orlando and Ashton but my DH was totally anti both names and adamant that I stand alone in liking the names!!!!

My favourites are Sebastiaan and Alexander

Benjamin is nice and so is Edward. Imho Logan is not good - it sounds like it's really trying to sound cool and it reminds me of 1970s sci-fi.

Please don't give him BJ as his initials !
I have nothing agains the name Benjamin and it could be a middle name but BJ is just cruel.

Spidermama Fri 05-Jun-09 18:50:12

Honestly? You wouldn't want your child to have the initials BJ? Because of blow job presumably.

How ridiculous! Sorry but to have this as a fear which would prevent you from using your favourite names is utter, utter madness.

barnsleybelle Fri 05-Jun-09 18:59:06

My husband is a BJ. Benjamin james and he says in 40 yrs noone has ever mentioned the blow job thing...

Spidermama Fri 05-Jun-09 19:00:28

I can't believe people allow such purile nonsense to inform their choice of name.

katiek123 Fri 05-Jun-09 19:12:12

logan is great (never watched x-men and no idea who they are - so that connection is lost on me!)
