I've given my Dh the following Shortlist

He has said No to every single boy's name suggestion I have come up with.

I have sent him the shortlist. These are my favourites. He can ADD to the shortlist but the name must come from the shortlist.

The middle name is set in stone. Surname is similar to Matthews.

Any obvious front runners or awful things that I've missed..

Stephen Montgomerie
Luke Montgomerie
Christian Montgomerie
Ben Montgomerie
Charlie Montgomerie
Nathan Montgomerie

'He can ADD to the shortlist but the name must come from the shortlist'???

hahaha grin

Mumcentreplus Fri 24-Jul-09 15:03:08

I like them all btw

Well...he's been ridiculous so far..:-) He has said No to every single suggestion. All of them.

He panics when asked to do serious things so can only come up with the names of footballers past and present as his suggestions - generally their surnames.

He is now "thinking".

Mumcentreplus Fri 24-Jul-09 15:16:57

give some examples of his suggestions..

Bathsheba Fri 24-Jul-09 15:19:03

He has made no suggestions at all..

Other than Rougvie and Considine.

Do you know it's definitely a boy, and how long have you got to go? Perhaps he's not feeling 'The Fear' yet...

I feel for you I do

Mine said Bobski all the time until I named the Roomba Bobski to shut him up

All perfectly respectable names

Nathan or Luke

what is it with men and boys names?? Thank God we're having a girl or we were going to end up having some BIG arguements!!!! "Darius, come in for your tea" - I think not!!

Wait and see what the baby looks like. It helps to have some favourites, but you don't need to know in advance. DS3 was going to be James, but when he arrived he just didn't look like a James. See what feels right once he's arrived.

Mumcentreplus Fri 24-Jul-09 15:27:52


what about family names?...

teddygirl23 Fri 24-Jul-09 15:34:18

i like christian the best

Mumcentreplus Fri 24-Jul-09 15:41:08

I like Christian best too..although that may be slanted reasoning due to my semi-secret Christian Bale crush..grin

mumof2222222222222222boys Fri 24-Jul-09 15:58:16

I like all of them - except Luke.

Are you going to end up calling him Monty? I think it is very cute!

jellybeans Fri 24-Jul-09 16:02:32

Nathan or Luke.

MamaLazarou Fri 24-Jul-09 16:11:56

Christian Bale is very handsome, but his accent is just too silly these days.

Mumcentreplus Fri 24-Jul-09 16:20:50

I agree Mamalaz...'like i want him to speak' hmm grin

Don't like Luke or Charlie

magbags Fri 24-Jul-09 20:11:21

Christian is the nicest imo. Lovely in fact.

Stephen reminds me of a smelly boy at school so not keen on it for that reason. To me, it will always be a smelly boy's name.

janeite Fri 24-Jul-09 20:20:45

I love Luke and Christian. I like Ben but better as Benjamin. I don't like Nathan or Charlie.

monkeyfacegrace Fri 24-Jul-09 20:22:35

Christian is revolting. I was married to one once.

yama Fri 24-Jul-09 20:25:07

I like all but Christian.

Favourite is probably Ben.

TheChilliMooseSpeaksTheTruth Fri 24-Jul-09 20:26:59

Stephen is a good name. I like it with the ph and not a v too.
Luke is a bit short to go with such a long middle name. (does it have to be that middle name?)
Christian is not a name that I am keen on.
Ben is too short. Benjamin?
Charlie isn't a real name. Charles/
Nathan sounds a bit modern to go with the middle name, but is a nice name.
