Hi, am being induced next week and although we have a girls name we love, are struggling for our boys name, please tell me honestly what you think of our 'short' list

Danny (although this is V popular where we live)
Patrick (Paddy)

Of your list I like


I love Jonathan and Daniel as well ( as opposed to JOhnny and Danny, I think this gives more choice as they grow up, they'll prob still be known by those nicknames anyway, although my brother has always been a "Dan")

Good luck smile

Luca not keen prefer Lucas
Danny I like also like Daniel
Sonny I love
Patrick/Paddy not keen
Johnny I like
Milo I love
Robbie I love also Robert
Ted quite nice
Joe love
Billy love also like Will/William

Be prepared for lots of people to say many of these are not proper,adult or names to be taken seriously. Don't be disheartened though go with what you love.

Yes, I love Robert and William as well.

I am an old stick in the mud and prefer DC to be given the traditional name and then choose what to shorten it to, iyswim.

Really though, you have to choose what you love, not some old farts on the internet grin
