Hi,

DF and I need help with boys names. original.gif

We have a "Felix" and prefer unusual names as first names and strong classic names as second names.

Baby is due in August and despite DF's intuition that it's a girl  rolleyes.gif I feel like we need to get started on boys names because I'm out of ideas (and sick as a dog). lol.

Names on the list so far:-

Lucien
Torsten
Cassius
Tobias
Caius (I love Caius but hate the nn Kai/Cai so it's most likely off the list).
Phinneas (Already have a variation on Finn in the family so it can't be used).
Theodore (Have a Theodora in the family, love the NN Theo - pronounced t-AY-o)
Gideon

At this stage the middle name will be Duncan or Charles. Surname sounds like Haul so H names are out.

Thanks Ladies!

Sounds like you've got a bit of a german twist to those names...
What about Axel, Diedrich, Eric or Kurt?
