(14 Posts)

Have just found out expecting baby no 4 and I'm looking for a boys name. There are rules though it must be a real name and have 3 syllables. Sounds silly I know but other three Oliver(Ollie), Emily (Millie) and Tobias(Toby) all do so feel I need to continue this way. We have a girls name Eliza(Lizzie) left over from last pregnancy but for the life of me I can't think of a boys name that fits. hmm Help please

Mathias (Matty)

Christopher (Kitty), Lucifer (Lucy) - okay the last two are a joke - does the nn have to have two syllables?

As already mentioned I'd go with Benjamin. It fits your criteria and goes with the names you've got for your other 3!

Really like Montague and Mortimer (Monty), but have good friend who's son is Monty, Timothy great but don't think oh will go with it he wants Barnaby which is lovely but I know too many. Thanks for all the suggestions keep them coming. smile

Sebastian? Not sure what you would shorten it to though..

Zachary?

I have a Benjamin, but when people call him Benjy i want to scream at them that he is NOT A DOG! wink

Does it HAVE to be a three syllable name? Or does i just have to be able to be shortened?

You can shorten Sebastian to Seb, which is lovely!
