We were told we had an 80% chance of having another girl but we discovered at my last scan it is a boy!
The only boys name I love is Rhys/Reece but the rest of my family really dislikes it and my Husband isn't as keen on the name as he was when we were expecting our daughter. So I've gone through the lists and the only name I like (not love) are listed below. Please let me know what you think!
Rease (Rees)
Reece (this is the only spelling my DH will even consider)

Thanks so much!

Pity you told the family the name.  I think Rhys is the best by far.

If the family has really got to you or your DH my choice would be Reece because it's the same name, then Dane, then Reid or Reeve.  These are all nice examples of their style.

I LOVE Reed (spelt this way). I also quite like Reeve.

Not a fan of the others sorry.

We have a Rhys and now trying to name second boy.On telling family and asking opinions many admit they didn't used to like Rhys but it has grown on them as a gentle but strong name. People know it, usually spell it this way, and we have only met one other in 6 years. I think telling people is the worst idea as the position we are now in is the shortlist has some who like some names and others like others and it's like taking sides. Stick to your guns. See if you come up with anything you both like, and if not, prey on the day you get your way (I am doing that, hoping for a Hugh). It's a great name (not a fan of the rest on the list). Good luck!
