His rules include:

No Js
No Hs
No name of any living relative so no David, Robert, Alexander
Ideally Scottish
Ideally something we can shorten but nothing too long (don't even get me started on the stupidity of this demand)

He's driving me demented.

Alistair / Alasdair shortened to Al or Ali. I'm biased cos I have one grin

Matthew?

Longish, but only two syllables and easy to shorten.

These are great! Lots of names I really like but you need to keep them coming because DH still won't take any of these. At this rate the baby will just be called "Hey you"!

Patrick.(I know it's not Scottish, but it is Celtic, and fulfils his other requirements, and it's a fab name!

Get him to come up with suggestions if he's so fussy!
