I have a list the length of my arm of girls names.

But zero boys. I find they are either plain/ heard alot/standard names, think Peter, Alex, John, Christopher. Bore!

Or the opposite end of the spectrum, think River, Valentino, Blade, Ghost.

I am completely struggling for something a little different but most def not crazy or Ott.

I have a ds named Noah. At the time, was different and not heard alot but not too different.

Anyone help? Helps find this middle ground! grin

Since you have a Noah, why not go for another Biblical name from the Old Testament? Isaac, Jacob, Caleb, Levi, Reuben?

I have a friend who called her sons Eden and Blake. His cousins are Redd and Cole. I also know a Spencer, Jasper, Oliver (too over used) and a silly made up name that you get when you throw lots of scrabble pieces in the air and land and name it that!

How about Seb(astian), Seth, Zane or Tobias?

I've never met anyone under 40 called Peter - cool name due for a come back!

I like Rueben, Caleb, Jacob, but most of all Sebastian.

I was thinking another biblical name bit not the standard John or Matthew.

Keep 'em coming! These names are the sort Of level I am after smile

Hayden
Lawrence
Stephen
Logan
Robin
Theo
Keir
Daniel
Louis
Finn
Findlay
Owen
Rory

The names you've described as "plain" and "standard" are actually quite refreshing to hear, as they're not hugely fashionable at the moment. I think there are many more Reubens and Jacobs these days than Peters/Johns/Christophers.

Apart from all the Peter, Johns and Christophers I know. My df and dp are both Christopher John!

Maybe not fashionable for younger generations but heaps of adult Marks and Peters and what not.

I suppose its wanting something new.
I love Caleb for example but incredibly.popular right now.

I rather like Seth Polly! Is it short for anything anybody know?

MrsGazza Wed 24-Jul-13 18:18:28

Rory is an awesome name! But I am probably a little biased as I am currently having gorgeous cuddles with my 7 week old Rory!

But on a serious note we had had non stop lovely comments about his name and the reasons you chose Noah also work with Rory. Not too unusual but not heard every day.

We love it anyway. Good luck deciding!

floatyflo Wed 24-Jul-13 18:36:54

I like Rory. Reminds me of Gilmore Girls! If we have a girl I was seriously considering Lorelai!

Although if you dont know the tv show, you won't know who that is smile

Congratulations on your little Rory smile

MrsGazza Wed 24-Jul-13 18:44:32

I love the Gilmore Girls! Totally where I first heard the name but we are in the UK so Rory is a boys name here.

Love Lorelai too!

Seth and Seb are also great names. Good luck!

floatyflo Wed 24-Jul-13 18:52:43

In uk too! Love that Rory can be used for either.

Unfortunately dp won't even let me give Lorelai as a middle name.
