DSs 1-3 all have singe syllable first names as best for shouting at we felt that worked well with three syllable last name.
However, we are seriously stuck for a name for DS4, due next March. I am under severe pressure for "Jack" which I do not dislike but IMO it has become too common popular.
Names I like ie Ben, Luke, Mark do not work due to surname (think "BenDowney", gettit, gettit??).
Also name should kind of "work" in German, too, or at least be easy to pronounce.

Sooooo:
Joe
Karl/Carl
Matt: not glossy in German
Ross: horse in German

You see my dilemma, short list is very short. Anybody who known me in RL will recongnise me from this but here goes: our other names are Tom, Sam and Max.

Oh, please inspire me!! Or should we just completely go the other way and call him Bartholomewwink?? Just looked at the thread about Sebastian and really quite like that...

Bless you for this thread - I have enjoyed a 5 minute sit and cuppa whilst I did this, some I like less than others - some are family names. Cheers grin

Darth? Love it. Might suggest to DH that we have another baby, just so it can be a boy and we can call it Darth.
