Jesus cant believe youre getting such a hard time over names which lets face it are no worse than the MN faves, atticus, felix, arlo etc which are awful. i like milton best out of your choices and i suspect parents will have more of an issue with an unusual names than other kids will.

Sorry but they are all really, really bad. Has you DH come up with anything that is not going to make your son a laughing stock at school and for the rest of his life ?

Sorry, but I am thirding this!
Augustus = Gloop - when your child starts reading Roald Dahl they will NOT thank you!

I know a male and a female Aubrey. Prefer it for a girl though.

CruCru Wed 26-Jun-13 21:32:57

I know an Aubrey - it may not be as unusual as you'd like.

I thought Innes was a girls name but I love all your other ideas. Think Clement needs to go down on my shortlist. Angus would be an alternative for Augustus.
Love Erasmus too. Erasmus Darwin was v impressive.

I like Mortimer,especially with Clement smile

I like Charles too (not Charlie).

What's wrong with Milton?

TigerSwallowTail Wed 26-Jun-13 19:02:40

Tobias?

I love Aubrey but I thought it was a girls name?

I like Bertram the best, of your choices, but Silas and Austin are great suggestions in keeping with your taste, no? I also like Arthur, and Benedict.

LittlePandaBear Wed 26-Jun-13 18:37:14

Have you thought about Austin?

niffernaffer Wed 26-Jun-13 17:31:41

Its a great blog Duff, thanks. Some cracking new options there. Beginning to get burnout. What about Mortimer? Clem and Mott/ Mort???

I like Innes...I love Clem(ent) btw,lovely name smile

Have a look Here it's a great blog,and this particular name list might have something?

TarkaTheOtter Wed 26-Jun-13 12:52:01

I like Silas.

<deliberately doesn't comment on the others>

Innes is a girl's name isn't it? Bertram is v v cool.

hatebeak Wed 26-Jun-13 10:31:28

August is better than Augustus.
Innes is nice.

I like Milton! It's the name of my Mum's guinea pig grin Not very keen on any of the others, to be honest.

NooMyx Wed 26-Jun-13 10:06:06

Milton and Augustus would be my favourites from your options, too.
I like the others, too, though.

LizTerrine Wed 26-Jun-13 09:25:37

Eustace
Erasmus

DS 2 was going to be Augustus. I even purposely conceived him to be born in August. The little bugger came out a girl. And I don't much like Augusta

How about Aloysius?

Was about to come and defend Milton solution and cold water sterilising.
