Hello and Help!

I am due in 9 days with bub#2 and we cannot agree on a boys name. We already have a son - Harry Oliver. Urgently need some help and inspiration! Any suggestions welcome but we like more traditional names, not new, modern names.

Thanks so much  original.gif

Xavier, Sebastian, Quentin.

Try looking at different languages. That's how I got to Xavier and just turned the X into a Z because most people pronounce Xavier with a Z anyway.

Thanks for quick replies you three!
In our extended family we already have a William, 2 Michaels, Andrew, Samuel. I like all these names but they are out unfortunately.

Some of the names we have talked about but can't quite agree on are George, Frank, Louie, Edward, Angus...

We decided so easily with Harry but just seem so stumped this time around!

'My mum doesn't seem that interested in my baby'

Q: My mother and I have always been close, but now that I have a baby, she has not helped out as much as I thought she would.

This mum has donated over 2,000 litres of breast milk

The mother-of-two was diagnosed with hyper-lactation.

New guidelines: "Bottle-feeding mums need support too"

Breast is best, but mums who can't, or choose not to breastfeed need support too.

Call to teach kids about breastfeeding at school

The aim is to increase breastfeeding rates and reduce stigma.

'Working for nothing': Childcare crisis pushes Sydney parents to the brink

Most parents are experiencing substantial difficulties with the financial burden and lack of availability of childcare, as costs have more than doubled for some families in just over a decade.

Language development may start in the womb

Study found babies can recognise foreign languages before birth.

Paying $2.50 for a babycino? This is why...

Aren't babycinos just a bit of froth? Not so, it seems...

I'm a stay-at-home mum who's an awful housewife

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce. Together, we walked into the kitchen and hovered over the skillet like we were peering into a crystal ball. Looking into my future, I saw me eating a lot of take away.
