Love Wilbur, beware of Phineas, due to the popular cartoon series (although I'd love Phineas, the cartoon character, as a son grin)

31 weeks pregnant is not the time to picking names,
heed my warning people,heed my warning. <shakes head Solemnly>

Use Rufus. Please. You love it and who cares that another boy has the same name.

Caspar, Skye and Arlo go really well.

I know exactly how you feel, Frigg. A distant - but close - friend has just used my girls name and I just can't bring myself to use it. Like yours, it is not very common so I just couldn't get away with it. I'm devastated!

We have v similar taste in boys names. From your list I love Caspar, Pip, Idris, Asa (Ace - great nn) and Wilbur. I also have on my list Otis and Rudy. Oh and Herbert (herbie or bertie).

Floggingmolly Tue 08-Oct-13 14:09:18

Oisín or Jude.

UriGHOULer Tue 08-Oct-13 14:12:09

Oh gosh. It has to be Taliesin. I LOVE that name.

Tally for when he's a baby up to a little schoolboy
Then Supercool Tal for when he's a teenager.

I LOVE Asa, have no idea of its origin etc but its a great name.

It is pretty cool....I can't seem to find a middle name I love that goes with it though...
