We are trying to come up with a boys name. It is impossible, I have enough girls names for 8 children but none that I love for a boy.

If DD had been a boy she'd have been a Noah Finlay. It is now to common for us.

DH likes Nelson and Jasper and I do but I don't love them like I did my daughters name or any of my chosen girls names!.

We are looking for something that is unusual, cool and cute but not made up like Storm.

Any suggestions gratefully recieved.

Xavier is a fave of mine.

We called our son Ramsey, as a compromise on RAMASES!

Five other children were registered with Ramsey last year.

Find a word you really like, or a greek god that you respect, and go from there

My sons middle name is Eilob - a mixture of Eileen and Bob!

Love Dexter it's amazing and i like Ramsey too but do people ask whether it's after Gordon Ramsey?

twinklesky Fri 26-Jun-09 19:35:35

Sometimes they go..."Oohh like GORDON RAMSAY?" and I go, "er, no, like Ramses, the Egyption warlord" and then they shut up!

Love Otto and Theo but DD has them as friends, really dislike Caleb sorry, Rocco is madonna's son!! That's all I can think of.

Love Arlo so cool! Also love Raf but DH doesn't.

Like Victor but work with one who chatted me up and DH nenver forgave!!!. Only time I've ever seen him get protective.

I like Rupert and Miles too but DH doesn't

I love Angus and Stanley but we know a Stanley already, Anugs is so adorable but DH has just vetoed as we have said no Scottish names as I wouldn't have Hamish!

FairLadyRantALot Fri 26-Jun-09 19:52:06

my sons are called Sven, Yannic and Flynn, all unusual but not made up...

saying that I regrett spelling Yannic without a k at the end....i.e. Yannick...would have been better...hindsight and all that..
