I have a name for a boy in mind but I don't love it, not in the way I did/ do my ds's name. So with 7 weeks to go (and don't know what I'm having, but best to be prepared!) I am open to suggestions.

I like Irish names, names that sound like they wouldn't be out place in a myth or fable, names that sound quite regal, literary names... if that's any help smile

I rather like Prosper!! what would it get shortened to, if anything, do you think? I've managed to avoid abbreviations of my kids' names so far but always best to think of everything...

I was talking to a friend today about how I wish I'd called ds2 Sullivan (Sully) but I chickened out and gave him a more mainstream name. Still love the name.

Prosper - a good name but I wouldn't like to have it as my name.

i love the name Ferdinand at the moment....Ferdy is such a cool NN....Hector and Huxley are my long standing favs as is Jules....

yummyspottyblueberry Fri 07-Aug-09 02:00:56

Erm...for Prosper....Prospector (gold digger)or Proz (prozzy) springs to mind.

I am a 100% top 20 (ish) gal when it somes to names but after seeing your names:-

Phoenix and Cassian, for some reason Gabe popped into my head. Dont particularly like it or Gabriel but it seemed to flow!

LetThemEatCake Fri 07-Aug-09 08:41:33

yes, I've gone off Prosper overnight.....

LetThemEatCake Fri 07-Aug-09 08:42:15

I love Seamus but it has such a horrid meaning. Love Seamus Heaney...

Was it you that liked Zephaniah? Sorry if not just it rang a bell with your other kids names. I like Zeph.

LetThemEatCake Fri 07-Aug-09 14:08:49

yes that was me. Gone off it as a first name .. possibly a 2nd, or Zephan maybe.

Top of my list is Magnus - love it but don't love it, if you get me..

Sacherville
Hector
Macsen

mopsyflopsy Fri 07-Aug-09 18:15:51

Sacherville???

That sounds like Sachertorte (a German cake)? You can't be serious!

Love Hector, though!
