3 weeks old and still no name - help!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], all help appreciated :smiley:

3 weeks post birth and we are still looking for a name for our little one!!!

First & middle name ideally - but first would be a welcome starter!

We have been trying to identify one for months (didn’t know we were having a boy so left it until birth until finalising - but nothing decided!) :oops:

We are UK based. Not into religious names (ie [name_m]Joseph[/name_m]), nothing ‘[name_u]Royal[/name_u]’ or traditional (ie [name_m]Henry[/name_m] / [name_m]Harry[/name_m] / [name_m]William[/name_m] / [name_u]Freddie[/name_u] / [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] etc) or anything Irish (Irish / [name_u]Royal[/name_u] / Religious are very popular where we live & amongst friends & family - so lots used up already), or ultra modern (ie [name_m]Jett[/name_m]), or old fashioned (ie [name_m]Norman[/name_m]).

We are Welsh / Manx / English heritage and name meaning is important to us.

His sister’s name is [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f].


Thanks (desperate)

[name_m]How[/name_m] do you like…


Like any of these names? Good luck!!!

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] and [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] was the first name that came to mind.

Some other possibilities:

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] and


What about [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] or [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]?

Thanks you!
Am liking [name_m]Callan[/name_m]! (one I havent heard of)
My parents suggested [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] & [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] but we arent oving either of those.
I like [name_m]Adrian[/name_m], but hubster doesn’t!

Thank you for all your suggestions.

After our EU referendum debarcle last week I can’t consider [name_u]Cameron[/name_u]!! (both me & hub do have strong name associations & that’s causing us many of the difficulty in finding a name :frowning: )

Our daughter suggested [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] & we do quite like…but is it acceptable to select the name your other child wants?!!


Thank you for your suggestions - I am loving the meanings you have identified. I love [name_m]Magnus[/name_m] [name_u]Rhys[/name_u] :smiley:

Hubs isnt sure, but [name_m]Magnus[/name_m] is now on our short list - thank you!

Thank you for your suggestions. It sreally interesting you have many of the names family have suggested we are putting
[name_m]Xavier[/name_m] and [name_m]Pierce[/name_m] on our short list :smiley:

Thank you for your suggestions.

We have got [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] on our shortlist & we love [name_m]Vaughn[/name_m] so have added that.
We like [name_u]Drew[/name_u] but cut it from the shortlist as my hub is called [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] I call him And. If I had to shout our son with him it might sound like I cant say ‘And-drew!’

[name_m]Felix[/name_m] is my hubs fave name (I think of a cat! I like [name_u]Rex[/name_u] and he says thats a dogs name!!!)

[name_m]Otto[/name_m] is my mums fave.

Thank you for your suggestions.

[name_m]Emrys[/name_m] is on our short list & [name_m]Magnus[/name_m] (lol! - its actually a long shortlist so I may be asking for help to cut it down next!)

[name_m]Hugh[/name_m] has been mulled over but we have friends with a son of the same name but spelt [name_m]Huw[/name_m] so have now ruled it out.

[name_u]Tristan[/name_u] is lovely too, but we have a friend of that name and so want something different.
