Only 3 weeks to go! Tell me what you think of these names and which is the best. grin

Luke/Luc (not sure which spelling)

My favourites of Theo, Logan, Dillan, and Mason have been rejected by heartless DH who thinks he has a say! wink But as we have rather traditional names for the other DCs, I suppose he is grudgingly right!!

They are all lovely. If I had to pick I'd go for Dominic as the other two are very popular but it's a hard choice.

Sidge Wed 26-Aug-09 21:39:26

I love Luke, or Lucas (but not Luc to be honest).

Harry nice but popular.

feedthegoat Wed 26-Aug-09 21:39:31

I do like your shortlist much better than the names your dh has rejected. Sorry!

I think Harry and Luke are nicest.

ShowOfHands Wed 26-Aug-09 21:45:25

I don't like Luke but do like Lucas.

Harry is so popular now that I almost don't hear it anymore, I can't register it. It's lost all of its impact and instead of thinking 'oh that's nice' I just think 'oh another one'.

Dominic is quite nice actually.

Dominic then Luke, then Harry

LynetteScavo Wed 26-Aug-09 21:47:35

Luke or Dominic.

Theremare too many Harrys.

littleboyblue Wed 26-Aug-09 21:47:54

My ds2 is Luke. I liked Dominic but dp didn't.
I also liked Dillon and he liked Mason. But Luke is by far the best. Apart from when dp is saying "Luke, I am your father" very annoying!

LaDiDaDi Wed 26-Aug-09 21:49:38

Luke or Dominic.

Thanks all.
I feel like that a bit SOH about Harry, it is very popular.

Dominic is a problem one as we both can imagine a little boy running around called Dominic, but cannot see it for a little baby!! (weird, I know!)

I can imagine a little baby Luke though. I think I prefer that spelling.

DH is being useless, he is leaving the deliberating up to me, then will decided whether he likes it or not!! grin

BIG problem with Luke is that DH will not be able to resist the "Luke, I am your father" type linesgrin He is already doing it now!!

Feedthegoat, I do love the rejected names, but I can't see them fitting with the others in rl. But I won't tell DH you agree with him! grin

StretchFucksTheMailDaily Wed 26-Aug-09 21:56:22

x-posts littleboyblue!!! We must have similar DP/Hs!! grin

hobbgoblin Wed 26-Aug-09 21:58:02

Dominic but prefer YOUR list and prefer harry except it is waaay popular. like henry personally - which is close wink

really don't rate luc or luke

GirlsAreLoud Wed 26-Aug-09 21:58:23


Condominic the Dominic's in my school were all known as,

StretchFucksTheMailDaily Wed 26-Aug-09 22:03:47

Really, GirlsAreLoud? Never thought of that!!

Yay! Hobbgoblin!!grin Unfortunately I can't get round DH.

Thunderduck Wed 26-Aug-09 22:14:12

I don't like Harry. Luke is ok. Dominic is nice.

But Theo and Mason are even better.

LynetteScavo Wed 26-Aug-09 22:14:46

Oh, so Grilsaloud, you didn't have Luke the Puke?

Actually, Luke is my fave of the 3.

HeadFairy Wed 26-Aug-09 22:15:30

My favourites are Harry and Dominic.

jkklpu Wed 26-Aug-09 22:15:48

Dominic, who could be Nicky as a nn when small
not Luc unless you're French
Harry - ubiquitous

cece Wed 26-Aug-09 22:19:21

I like Luke and Dominic as both 'normal' type names but not overused. Harry also nice but a bit too popular for me. We half considered Luke for DS2...

cece Wed 26-Aug-09 22:20:20

BTW I agree with youjr DH and not keen in varying degrees on the other list.

GirlsAreLoud Wed 26-Aug-09 22:21:13

No, we didn't have Luke the puke.

Lynette, I don't think you and I better fall out about baby names - your DD and mine have the same name IIRC!

HeadFairy Wed 26-Aug-09 22:22:21

I have a Luca who we call Luca the Puker, I think he's only thrown up three or four times in his life

janeite Wed 26-Aug-09 22:24:37

Luke first (love it), then Dominic, then Harry.

Mason is terrible imho sorry - isn't it a kind of jar? Theo is lovely. Dylan is nice (that spelling).
