    Default Boys names, if you don't mind sharing...?

    I'm looking for some ideas - we find it very hard to pick names that we both like, especially boys names. We got there in the end last time, but still, can't call our kids A1 and A2 if they're both boys



    These are a few I like

    Bodhi - DH hates
    Miles - DH hates
    Zafir - DH hates (you see a pattern emerging...?)
    Earnest - DH says ok. I'm not sure about this one. I think Ernie is cute though.

    DH likes
    Armin. I don't.
    George. It's fine.


    ...and so on.

    Thanks!
    Theo....hmmm.
    I just remembered another name we like - Nathaniel. We have a close friend by that name though and don't want to give him a big head.

    Yeah, I think Zafir is arabic... might be wrong about that. I like Zaf for short. Doesn't matter anyway, not allowed.

    We had so much trouble naming our DS, everything i liked DF hated and vice versa. Our boy didn't get a name until he was over 2 weeks (we knew he was going to be a boy from 18 week scan too), and our 3 year old was so confused because we called him something different every day!

    I really liked Bodhi, he was called that for several days

    We ended up with Leo Alexander, but also had:

    Ajay (This was my favourite but a lot of people were negative about it being pronounced as initials A.J, it is actually pronounced A-Jai)
    Morrison
    Heath
    Alexander
    Jay
    Jasper

    DF's favourite boys name was Ariel (Seriously!) and Fabio was a close second...

    We find out (hopefully) what we are having tomorrow and if he's a boy he will be Oscar. We already have an Anton. Good luck! I find boys names really hard :0

    Thanks everyone!
    I have some more ideas to run by DH now.

    I think I've figured out our problem though. I am drawn to names for aesthetic reasons, while DH seems to be more interested in names that have personal significance to him.

    We have found boy names to be the hardest too.

    Our final two are

    Austin
    Mason

    The other 2 on our short list were Declan and Desmond
