Hi we are due in April to have our 2nd bub, we have Madison Rose picked for a girl but we are really stumped for a boy.

Tod Jay?
Mick?

If it's a boy he is going to be a country kid so nothing to out there, but any suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks for the suggestions...

Amber: I really like hunter too but hubby doesn't.

I really love Brock too but that's another one that he doesn't like.

Boy names are so hard!

Arthur! Under-utilised, strong name meaning "strong as a rock"

I like Todd (spelt that way) and Mick as a nn to Michael.

However I wouldn't pair Todd and Jay up, both are too short.

Todd Michael
Michael Todd

Thanks for the suggestions, please keep them coming!

I still like Tod but we're leaning towards maybe

Toby,

Toby James?

I'm finding it hard to find a name that suits a baby/teen/adult some names are great for kids but sound a bit "sooky" for adults.

Toby really isn't a strong boys name IMO original.gif

Things like: James, Will, Angus and of course Henry wub.gif are my pics!

If you want strong stick to traditional. I don't think Mick or Todd are particularly strong names either - sorry!!

My SIL is in the country and she has a John who is called 'Johnny'. It really suits him!

I love all of these suggestions!  Daniel in particular.  Especially for a country boy - Farmer Dan!

Love your chosen girl's name too - very pretty original.gif

I quite like Todd Michael. If you like "Mick" specifically, also consider "Mark". Mark David perhaps?
