In the eternal search for a boy’s name we both like, my husband keeps suggesting [name]Edgar[/name]. Not [name]Edward[/name] or [name]Edmund[/name] or any other [name]Ed[/name]-name, just [name]Edgar[/name].
[name]Edward[/name] is obviously very popular for boys, but [name]Edgar[/name] doesn’t seem to be up there at all… which is interesting because they both have the same nickname possibilities ([name]Ed[/name], [name]Ned[/name], [name]Eddie[/name] etc).
The other name he likes is [name]Alasdair[/name]. This one is tricky, because while I love it for a grown man, but I’m not sure I can see it on a little boy…? Am also not a fan of the nickname [name]Al[/name]. Although [name]Dair[/name] is quite cute. I can also foresee a lot of spelling/pronounciation problems with this one… i.e. it’s [name]Alasdair[/name], not [name]Alistair[/name], etc.
If baby is a girl she will be [name]Clementine[/name]. So I guess we want something that works with that style of name, in case we go on to have a girl next time.
So what do you think Berries? [name]Edgar[/name] and [name]Alasdair[/name]… yay or nay?? thanks
