Pretty much as title. Our baby boy was born a week ago and we are drawing a total blank on names…
Looking for something a little unusual and quirky but equally something timeless that won’t date too much.
We’re British so nothing too American.
Already have 2 boys: [name_u]Ollie[/name_u] ([name_m]Oliver[/name_m]) and [name_u]Indy[/name_u] ([name_u]Indiana[/name_u]) so something that compliments…
Surname starts with an ‘eh’ (like elephant) which rules lots of names out…
Names we like but have ruled out:
[name_m]Hamish[/name_m] - love it but it doesn’t seem to fit with the other 2 and not sure how it would abbreviate
[name_u]Kai[/name_u] - love the meaning and vibe but don’t like the fact it’s one syllable
[name_u]Kit[/name_u] - again 1 syllable and ends with a consonant which doesn’t work well with our surname
[name_m]Koa[/name_m] - bit too unusual
[name_u]River[/name_u] - we love but have close friends who have named their son this so it feels wrong
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] - too common and popular
[name_u]Austin[/name_u] - don’t want another American place name and not keen on abbreviations
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m] - love but hate [name_m]Hugh[/name_m]
[name_m]Atlas[/name_m]/[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] - love [name_f]Atti[/name_f] but these both seem a little too pretentious
