We found out today we are having another little boy wub.gif

DS is Edgar George. We like unusual, but traditional, names. No J or C names please, or names ending in S. Surname is long (5 syllables) and Greek.

Our short list for DS was Edgar, Sidney and Henry (although Henry is too popular for our liking). This time I'm liking Harvey as well.

Middle name will be a family name, either Lewis, Jacob, Harmen or Cornelis.


WDYT? Any combinations jumping out at you? Any other first name suggestions?

Thanks!

Ambrose
Osbert
Wilfred
Percy
Leopold
Ingram

I like Henry and Harvey both. Henry is rather popular but still classic IMO.

Ambrose I saw mentioned by the 7 Dwarfs, and I do like it very much.

Other old-fashioned names I like:
Gareth
Tristan
Kingsley
Peregrine
Alastair/Alasdair
Lysander/Leander
Hugh
Leon
Gideon, Gabriel

I like Wilfred but I just think of the dog now. I had Leo on my list for DS and DH vetoed it, I'd say the same would go for Leopold sad.gif

I like Alastair, I'll suggest it to DH. I had Hugo on my list for DS and it was vetoed, not much hope for Hugh.


Thanks, keep 'em coming!

I love your DS name!! Sidney and Henry are also wonderful. You have great taste.

Winston
Stellan
Willem
Desmond
Hector
Rupert
Augustin
Julien
Quentin
Vaughn
Philip

I think Rupert is fantastic with Edgar. Goes well with Harmen and Cornelis IMO.

Henry may be popular (although not ridiculously so), but it's a great name.  I think Henry Lewis is a good combination.

Good luck!

Not much help from me but I love Henry.
Our baby is due soon and will be Henry. We were going with Isaac but changed our minds.
Other names that we considered were James, Lucas, Leo, theo.
Sorry not much help.

I like Leo, Hugo and Milo but DH vetoed them for DS. Vincent and Victor are floating around just outside our shoe list. I like Angus, I'll take that to DH. Same with Rupert.

The S thing is more about first names, just because our last name ends in S and I think it sounds a bit funny with a first name also ending in S. Although BIL is Nicholas and that sounds ok. I like Gilbert, and as above Rupert.

Rupert again original.gif I don't mind Willem either. I like Augustin but don't think DH will go for it.

DH doesn't like Leo. I think Theo would just make for a very Greek sounding name. James and Lucas are a bit too mainstream for me.

Edgar is my top boy name this time and DS2 was very nearly George! So since we are on the same wavelength my boys are Linus and Rowan, other names on the list are Walter, Miles, Albert.

I like Linus but have been put off by a very strange Linus I once taught! Love Miles, but it sounds silly with our surname.

Edgar is a great name, I hope you use it!

I think I prefer Andrew to Andre. I quite like Andreas but not sure we'd pull it off.

Hamish



Elliot is a great name, unfortunately it's my nephews. Hamish is cute, but we tend to call Edgar 'Eggs' and I think adding a Ham(ish) to the mix is a bit much!

Sidney is great too!

I like Lewis for a first name. Or Louis
