Im seriously struggling this time round. Our 3yo DS is named Beau. We had a name picked by the time i was 12 weeks and to this day LOVE the name and the way it fits with our surname.

I'd like something uncommon without being weird, something you dont hear on a daily basis.

I'd love your suggestions guys???????

Oh and it's a baby boy we are having :-)

I'm going to stick with other one syllable names, and my definition of "uncommon" is "outside the top 100"/not used as a sample in the "Stuck On You" sticker/school label ads

* Rhett (keep up the Southern gentleman vibe)

* Miles

* Clive

* Piers

* Jude

* Rhys

* Tate

* Reid

We must have similar taste in names - this is a great list!

We pick with Beau would be Seth or Nate.
