I'd want to avoid having 'Freddie & Eddie' or 'Bill & Bob' or any similar clichés! All your other boys have lovely classic names so I'd probably go for David, Matthew, Andrew, Daniel... something like that.

I really feel for you hun, we can't come up with anything for this baby & we only have to chose 1 name (well 1 of each sex...)!

Hi Rach, we are having one boy and my DH doesn't like nothing I come up with When I ask him what he likes he doesn't know.. silly man I really like Daniel - I know it's a very common name but I would give it to my boy if DH would agree.

Im sorry as soon as i read that, it made me think of bill and ben.



I love more traditional names, im not a lover of the more modern names. Ive found myself pausing on names in papers etc to see if i like them.

Is there any names that run through your family that you like?


I know we are struggling with this one. Alice was Alice from day one (before we even knew she was a girl), this time we are stuck. Nothing has jumped out at me. I think i will really start to seriously think about it when we know the sex though. I can see this one being born and named a couple of days later.

what are your fathers/grandfathers names? maybe if they are nice you could pass them on to your children and Im sure your fathers etc would be honoured

Well if we have a boy it's going to be Adam Christopher so I was going to suggest that but then noticed you've already got a Christopher! Personally I'd go for names that sounded quite different from each other but that's just me! I also like Alex, Nicholas, Benjamin, Thomas...
