Hi all,

I am new on here, so hello first of all! I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with a boy and, although I know we have a while still to go, I really want to get at least a short list of names, but we are finding boys' names SO hard!!

We already have a daughter, Florrie, who is nearly 2, so we are looking for a name that goes well with her's.

We like Max and Henry, but know a million of them (or so it seems!) born in the last few years, so that rules them out for us.

We also love both Flynn and Finnegan, but my sister has a Fin, so that rules these out for us too!

At the moment, the only name we have as a possibility is Archer, which we like but don't love (although it could grow on me more I think).

I'm really looking for a name to love, but am finding boys' names SO much harder that girls'!

Any help would be great!

Thanks!!! original.gif

I love Archer.  Didn't the first time I heard it but it's now grown on me.  I also love Hudson Finn.  I agree, boys names are tough.  Good luck choosing original.gif
