I'm currently 38+2 with first db, and my husband and I still don't have any boys names decided. We kind of like these three:


What do you think?? Any other suggestions of more unusual - but not weird - boys names? Need to be easily pronounced in Spain as dh is Spanish.

Elliott - nice
Solomon - less so
Devon - really?

I like Elliott and Solomon, not so keen on Devon.

A friend of mine has a Solomon and a Zebadiah.

Finding a name that is pronounced the same in two languages is SO hard, we've had to do it with Dutch and English.

To me Devon is a cheap pressed meat - a bit like Spam, but not canned.
Love Solomon though!
Leo works well in Spanish.

Solomon's cool.

As long as your surname isn't Grundy!

I only like Elliott out of those three

Honest opinion-
Elliot is okay,
Solomon makes me think of an old man and I don't like place names so that rules out Devon.

I had a Gabriel (Pronounced spanish like Gabrielle in Desperate Housewives) at my Uni. I thought that was nice..

Solomon is cool - I wouldn't be brave enough to use it, but I like it a lot, and Sol is a lovely nickname.

Devon sounds American and corny.

Not keen on Elliot.

I love Elliot!!

Solomon / Sol is good

Not keen on Devon (think of how the V would be prounounced in Spanish too.)

What about the Spanish double-L pronounciation though with Elliot? Ella caused much confusion when I did a school Spanish exchange.

I like Devon.

V good point Pinkpotty! He'd be Ey-ee-ott!!

I like Devon but not elliott or solomon (sounds like salmon)

I really like Solomon...DS has a friend of the same name, he gets Sol. Quite cool.

not keen on the other two, but that is just my opinion....what you call you DC has bugger all to do with me ! smile

Love Solomon, that's a name we've previously considered.
