I think I've finally narrowed the list down to these two...

So Felix or Alistair? I love Greyson and Piers too but I think they need to remain on the fantasy name list sad

DGTwin would have been Alisdair is she'd been a boy.

Prefer Felix personally!

Great choice. How about Alistair Felix?

FollicallyEnhancedFreak Fri 22-Feb-13 21:51:57

I think I'm going to go for Alistair, child number 3 has a different initial so it won't look too weird hopefully

Just need a middle name now!

I have a Felix, love it!

Alastair

DH vetoed...

Alastair.

Felix sounds too much like a cat.

Felix for sure!

Ali as a nickname was great until we lived in Befnal Green, you couldn't move for Ali's, i found it really confusing!

Yup, wierd! But hey, they won't always all live at home. ;)

Quite a mixed response!

I love Ali as a NN.

This is DC4 - I already have 2 DC with an A name, will 3 A names make me look odd? hmm

another biased one with her own Alistair here! I love the name. We call my ds Ali mostly, or Alicat grin

GreenEggsAndNaiceHam Fri 22-Feb-13 17:24:02

Alastair. Ours was always called Alastair till he got to senior school and some of his friends called him ali or al.

Felix!

Ham69 Fri 22-Feb-13 17:16:15

Not helpful at all but I absolutely love them both. I like the spelling Alistair, though thats probably because I knew a lovely one!

ladymia Fri 22-Feb-13 17:09:49

Out of those Alastair but it's a name he will always be spelling out.

Felix just makes me think of the cat too. My OH actually likes the name Felix but there is NO way it's even making the maybe list for us for the cat reason.

Zaphiro Fri 22-Feb-13 16:29:30

Alastair. So many spellings though!

mynameis Fri 22-Feb-13 14:18:31

Def Alistair, I only think of cats when I hear Felix!

forgottenpassword Fri 22-Feb-13 14:08:38

Both great names. Alistair has slight edge cos of the cat connection with Felix

colditz Fri 22-Feb-13 14:01:48

Felix is a brand of cat food, fgs!

MsAkimbo Fri 22-Feb-13 14:00:19

Ooh I love BOTH those names! However, I would go with Felix. It's harder to saddle a nickname for Felix.

deadlegs Fri 22-Feb-13 12:09:48

I'm biased as I have an Alastair. Agree with whyriskit though that you will often need to spell it, and get used to people spelling it incorrectly regardless!

FELIX FELIX FELIX !!!! name him Felix for me, it was my favourite name ever but DH wouldn't have it sad

YummyMummyFeelingFunny Fri 22-Feb-13 12:01:14

Felix, lovely!
