I posted previously on here about choosing a name for our son. In my old thread we were deciding out of [name_m]Roger[/name_m] and [name_m]Alistair[/name_m]. I’m pretty certain we’ve decided on [name_m]Alistair[/name_m]!
Now I’d love to get some feedback please on the name [name_m]Alasdair[/name_m], the original Scottish form of [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] (my grandfather’s name was [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] and I’d love to honour him). Although I like the [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] spelling, it’s occurred to me that I really want to pronounce this name with the ‘air’ sound on the last syllable. Unfortunately, (for my personal tastes) [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] will very likely be pronounced with the ‘uh’ sound at the end. I’m not saying I don’t like this - I’m just saying that I’d prefer to have the ‘air’ sound at the end.
So this has got me wondering about [name_m]Alasdair[/name_m] [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think it would be ridiculous on a boy who isn’t living in [name_f]Scotland[/name_f]? I’m worried that if we were to choose this name that he’d constantly get asked if he’s Scottish and although we do have Scottish roots, they are pretty far back on my husband’s side only.
I’d really appreciate all of your feedback and help with this one! Thank you again. You’ve all been so helpful and I really appreciate your honesty
