Naming a third son is proving a very pressurised situation. I want a name I love as much as my other sons' names and there are many that I love a whole lot (with the obstacle being my husband).

Just because I'm hot and bored, indulge me and pick your top two from this list:

Rupert
Quentin
Jarvis
Reuben
Jude
Kit
Crispin
Silas
Cassius
Fabian
Magnus
Orson
Jago
Benedict (can you think of a nickname other than Ben or Ned?)
Maximus
Vincent
Otto
Ivo

Maximus and Otto.
I also like Rupert and Jude is OK, the others are NMS.

I've always loved the name Reuben original.gif That would have to be my pick.

Have you thought about Arlo?

Bendydick. (Seriously, a rather famous Benedict was nicknamed Bendy-d*ck Come-on-my-baps by his classmates!)

But...I love the name nevertheless! It would be my favourite off this list. I think Reuben would be next, although Vincent would be a contender also.

Reuben and Kit.  What about Quinn?

#6 TheFirstNoel

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:09 PM

I like Ivo but prefer Yvo or Yves personally.  Orson is pretty cool.

Vincent
Benedict
Cassius - I love this name but not the meaning or associations.


Actually, I love your list.  Almost all of them are awesome imo.

Reuben, Silas. Really hard to choose though, some great picks here.

Cassius only juuust missed out on top two because I wasn't sure which of the pronunciations you were using. I'd bump Silas down to 3rd for cash-us, but not for cass-ee-us.

#21 emlis22

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:44 PM

Rupert & Silas.

#22 Feral Grey Mare

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:46 PM

My fantasy boy's name is Otto but only if I had a complementary surname. All the others on your list just leave me cold.

#23 PixieVee

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:46 PM

I like Jude.

#24 snuffles

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:47 PM

Magnus and Rupert.


(DS2 is named Magnus so I'm biased).

#25 Ianthe

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:47 PM

Rupert and Maximus.
