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.


#3 Baggy

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

Have you thought about Arlo?

Benedict (can you think of a nickname other than Ben or Ned?)


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 leisamd

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.

Posted 07 January 2013 - 03:41 PM

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.
