Alexander (Alex)



Thanks smile

All are quite nice,I like Alexander and Alice the most. Then Jamie and Beth. Less keen on Angus and Georgia

Alexander is great, though I don't like the shortened form.

Angus is great. I really love it. Use that one

I'm not a fan of Jamie.

Georgia is nice. Beth and Alice are ok.

MamaLazarou Fri 03-Jul-09 09:05:02

They are all lovely names!

MintChocAddict Fri 03-Jul-09 15:14:29

Thanks for your opinions.
Angus is really growing on me but DH not so keen and not sure if he'll budge on that one.
Wish he was an AC/DC fan! wink

Another quick question. Have a really short surname and just wondering if Beth is too short to go with it IYSWIM?

They're all fine names. Particularly like Alice.

Strike Jamie and Georgia off and you've got a pretty good list there!

Alexander (Alex)-really common, its ok
Angus-reminds me of a steakhouse (we have angus steakhouses in canada!)
Jamie-like this name, consdiering it for our new addition


Beth-meh...not thrown on this one
Alice-our dogs name...

Thunderduck Fri 03-Jul-09 15:36:07

I'm an AC/DC fan so I say name him Angus. Ignore your dh.grin

jellybeans Fri 03-Jul-09 16:00:23

Like Beth. Jamie is OK.

Mammina Fri 03-Jul-09 16:05:15

Georgia is my favourite, prefer Bess to Beth, Alice is nice, the boys' names are ok but I don't love them

dizzydixies Fri 03-Jul-09 17:43:24

all fine but I would favour Jamie less as I know one and he's a wee sod shock

MintChocAddict Fri 03-Jul-09 20:46:35

Funny you say that Dizzy. All the Jamie's I've ever known have been quite cheeky types. Maybe I'd have my work cut out with that one. wink

Might just do that Thunderduck! Although would I have AC/DC tunes in my head on when he gets his first school uniform?? grin

Bess is nice too migola but wouldn't work with my surname.

Think the main problem I'm having is that loads of my favourite names have been given to children of close friends and family.

Alice, Alexander and Angus are my faves tonight but as I'm very fickle, that'll probably change by the morning. grin

Thanks for all your thoughts. smile

When I have kids I'm sending them to private school so my son will not only be called Angus, but he'll also look like a mini Angus,that's my only reason.grin

Alice and Beth both lovely but I like Alice best. Don't like Georgia.

Not fond of the boys' names but Alex is best of the three.

Can't think beyond the deranged cat in the Georgia Nicholson books when I hear Angus.

Alexander and Alice.
If you want Jamie I would go for James and then he can choose. I know a DC who was known as Jamie from birth (never anything else)once he got to 8yrs he insisted on James and wouldn't answer to Jamie. I would have Elizabeth as the full name and shorten to Beth.
I always think cattle with 'Aberdeen Angus'.

Tortington Sat 04-Jul-09 15:20:17

i hate jamie - i detest it.

angus - only if your scottish or work in burger king

alex - meh

beth - nice

georgia - common

alice - nice

MrsMattie Sun 05-Jul-09 10:01:06

Alex and Alice nice,. Not keen on the rest.

Thanks a lot for your replies. Think I'm set on Alexander or Alice, but with another 7 months to go (all being well) and mad hormones to kick in, I may well be back with a completely different list! wink
