    Something different? *shrugs*

    So I ave a girls name sorted. It was on my list when I was pregnant with DS... The only boys name I liked I named DS, so that as left e with nothing and I am being really fussy! And I don't like any common names.

    Would love some suggestions, but like I said I am being fussy.

    Some that I like are;
    Tyr (teer), just not sure if this name is too closely related to DS name, Odin (Tyr was apparently Odin's son).
    Raven, I am certain we won't use this, but I like it.
    Griffin, with middle name we are using ends in IN also, thinking it might be a bit if over kill.
    Faolan (fay-lan or fallon), this one is new so still not sure, especially on the first pronunciation.

    So, thoughts? We are really stuck and I am sick of looking! Lol

    Tyr will be extremely hard for people to pronounce correctly. Faolan for some reason sounds sexual to me. Raven- yuck sorry and Griffin reminds me of a children's story.

    The partner had Gunnar on his list but I said, no don't like Magnus... Not sure why, reminds me of something. I think I like Linus out of those.

    Griffins are commonly used in kids stories, AG I think that's why I like it, it reminds me of happy and mystical things.

    I also like Arion, but think it too closely resembles Aryan.

    Tallon's not bad. I had a cat named Tallon

    I have thought about Loki, but I think with so many Lauchlan's these days I am put off.
