So what's your favourite boys name? Dh has a favourite (which I  not a fan of) buy I can't seem to find anything that I love and we have 10 days to go. :s

I love Italian boys names like Luciano, Domenico, Carmelo etc but would never have the guts to use any unless some how I ended up birthing the child of an Italian stallion (on I wish!)

Strictly traditional for me:
or Darius
and........my ultimate fantasy name for a boy is Otto but I could never use it with our surname, it would need a really German sounding surname I think

I like Patrick but not sure it could go on the 'love' list.

Hamish & Harrison/Harry has come and gone from our list and Angus is DH's fav but I just can't come around to it.
