I'd like a first and middle name. The combos I've got in my head at the moment are...

Elliott Arthur
Theo Stephen
Alexander Henry
Magnus Rory
Fraser George
Daniel Alexander
Hugh Edward
Archie Samuel
Finlay Seymour

Feedback and ideas welcomed please!

Oh, I love Theo. Was one of my favourite names for this baby, but DH has said no. Fraser George sounds nice too. smile

MrsMattie Wed 26-Aug-09 21:39:24

I'm not big on saying whether first and middle names 'sound good' together, as I genuinely dont think it matters.

However, as names go:

I like Theo, Daniel and Samuel very much.

Meant to add, surname sounds a bit like Garden but not. Hard "G" and two syllables.

Love Alexander Henry, (ds1)

Like Fraser combo (ds2)

Hugh combo,

Elliot is my fav boys name but don't like it with Arthur

Elliot George
Elliot Daniel
Elliot Samuel

I like most of your names though it has to be said you have good taste

LaDiDaDi Thu 27-Aug-09 17:54:31

shameless bump

crokky Thu 27-Aug-09 17:57:48

I like Daniel Alexander the best.

MamaLazarou Thu 27-Aug-09 18:28:50

They are all lovely - apart from Finlay, which is too trendy and will date quickly.

Lizzylou Thu 27-Aug-09 18:31:38


Alexander Henry
Daniel Alexander
Hugh Edward


Love Seymour as a middle name though not keen on Finlay.

LaDiDaDi Thu 27-Aug-09 18:40:41

Dp has just pointed out that Hugh Edward sounded familiar because of the newsreader Hugh Edwards. Think I will have to scrap or rearrange that combo.

KleineMaus Thu 27-Aug-09 21:10:56

Both my ds's name and my top choice for dc2 if it's a boy are on your list - what great taste you have!

nigglewiggle Thu 27-Aug-09 21:14:48

Fraser George is my favourite.

I also thought of Hugh Edwards!

thirtypence Thu 27-Aug-09 21:14:55

Weirdly for a mumsnet name thread I like all of them.

MermaidSpam Thu 27-Aug-09 21:36:51

Like Theo ALexander (just to be awkward!)

Jojay Thu 27-Aug-09 21:38:37

Love Fraser George.

Why didn't I think of Fraser for Ds1 or 2 ????? grin

1Maya2 Thu 27-Aug-09 21:54:41

Love Magnus really cool name,

janeite Thu 27-Aug-09 21:59:41

I like Theo(dore), Daniel or Hugh best. I don't like Finlay Seymour or Fraser George.

1Maya2 Thu 27-Aug-09 22:00:05

P.s Many good scottish names in your list

Scottie22 Thu 27-Aug-09 22:09:15

Love Theo - I wasn't allowed this for ds as dh wanted Archie so we settled on Laurie!! I still look at ds sometimes and think he would have suited the name Theo though!!

janeite Thu 27-Aug-09 22:10:07

Laurie is gorgeous.

upamountain Sat 29-Aug-09 09:54:45

Fraser, Magnus, Alexander and Hugh are my favourites in that order.

Fraser was to be my choice for another ds.

MadameCastafiore Sat 29-Aug-09 10:06:40

Elliott Arthur - Yep
Theo Stephen - No (Stephen???)
Alexander Henry - Yep
Magnus Rory - No (I know someone who has a Rory and dislike her and it colours my view!)
Fraser George - Lovely
Daniel Alexander - Too many Daniels about these days
Hugh Edward - Hugh is a grown ups name not a childs name
Archie Samuel - Yep
Finlay Seymour - Seymour is just a porn name don;t saddle your child with it.

sumatra Sat 29-Aug-09 18:45:45

Theo lovely&spoils it with stephen,sorry,Samuel also nice,those names listed are quite unusual&don't need middle names.

doubleexpresso Sat 29-Aug-09 20:26:30

Love Magnus. Great strong sounding name and still unusual. Also love Rory. All your names are great actually.
