Please give me some ideas for names for a surprise boy!!

Siblings are Tabitha and Landon.

Absolutely stuck after having spent months deciding on a girls name!

Congratulations! I like the names Noah, Oliver, Jacob and Christopher.

Nicholas, Gabriel, Rory, Francis?


I remember what it's like to be faced with a "help what will we name this baby" question - I like to say that our youngest was named before his older sister as we were happy with our boy's name choice but really struggled to find a girl's name.

What was your girls name?

Sebastian is my favourite boys name. I've got two girls so I've never been able to use it.

What were you going to call him when you thought he was a she?

And congratulations!

How about Reuben?

The name means "behold, a son!"

Very apt and a lovely name IMO.

Congratulations! This exact same thing happened to me with my eldest and it took us best part of two days to decide on a name. Plus he was dressed in pink until my in laws brought him some other clothes 😂
I'd spent a fortune on pink too

Reuben is indeed a lovely name.

Happened to me too! DS was minus a name for a week while we tried a few out, finally named him Joel.

What about Jesse, Sawyer, or Carter?

MissMrsMsXX Tue 31-Jan-17 12:35:36

Tabitha, Landon and Humphrey. (humf for short)

Sparklyuggs Tue 31-Jan-17 12:35:42

Congratulations! My friend had the same and she chose George (pre Royal baby but still lovely).

I was going to suggest Kit, it's DS1's name and I love it.

Tabitha, Landon and Kit - I like it grin

I really like Kit as a name, but I would probably use Christopher or Kristian as the official name and shorten it to Kit.
