We're having a baby boy! Which means, due to hubby's family tradition his middle name has to be "Alan".
surname is 3 sylables starting with Mc.... Anyone got any suggestions of first name to go with this??
Hubby and i love finlay but is only one can agree on and would like some other options!
Thanks ladies x

Keiron - or use the spelling Ciaran.

Joseph would sound really nice - what is your surname?

Are you Scottish?

Oh forgot to answer questions -
I'm not scottish but hubby "thinks" he is - that is he's born in england but our surname is mcgregor and his gdad was scottish....

Christopher, shortened to Christy (are you an Irish Mc?)

My dad's name is Alan, FiL is Christopher, surname like yours - I've always thought Christopher Alan McXY would be a good name (as it happens I've only the one & she's a dd)

Struan Alan McGregor

I like Finlay.
If you´re just having the one boy, isn´t it OK that you can only agree on the one name? grin

Hubby & I only ever agreed on one boys name.
Good job the ext was a girl!!!

Nothing that ends with an L - so no Michael!

Sounds daft having 'lalan' in your name.

I only mention as my ex's brother was called Dougal Alan.

Sounded like the chorus of a Bay City Rollers song - Doog-a-lalan.

Robert. Now that's a man's name.

I second Robert. Or David.

Finlay is lovely as is Hamish. Lovely Scots names!

valhala Fri 11-Sep-09 18:19:21

William Alan?

diddl Fri 11-Sep-09 18:24:10

Love Hamish.

Finlay James?

We've got an Edward Allan Mc . . .(single syllable). It rolls off the tongue nicely.

missismac Fri 11-Sep-09 18:35:52

Ripmacwinkle - Calum Alan hmm. Like the other names though.

diddl Fri 11-Sep-09 18:36:12

Sorry, looking at too many threads. blush
You´ve got a middle name!
