Otto
Claude
Claudio
Gideon
Gilbert
Lincoln

Dd1 Freya
Ds1 Leo

Honest thoughts please, really want his name to be non faddish and gorgeous.
Will probably wait til he arrives before naming but I am really afraid of still not agreeing on anything. These are names dh and I both agree on but or some reason he really dislikes Gilbert!

Please add any more names that come to mind when reading my list!

Ooh, Gideon! Would sound lovely with his siblings. I like all those options, bar Lincoln.

Rowley? Short for Roland?

Thanks FlamingG, I really love Roland, unfortunately I love lots of R names. Problem is we have a one syllable surname beginning with R!

Naturally, now I can only think of R names!

Or Miles?

Claudio appeals to me and can be shortened to Claude if he wanted to later?

Good luck OP

Im not really fan of any of your names on your list but if I had to chose it would be Gilbert.

What about Miles, Theodore or Elliott?

I really like all of these other than Lincoln. Claude is my absolute favourite and I think it's great with your other kids' names.

#12 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 13 February 2013 - 11:52 AM

Interestingly I like your current kids names, but nothing on your list.

Otto is my fantasy boy's name but I could never use it with our boring, white bread, Anglo surname. I am dying for someone to use it as I couldn't. Second pick from your list would be Gideon, closely followed by Gilbert.
