Thank you. This is so tricky trying to agree on a name with a oh that doesn't seem to like any names! There are definitely a few there on my shortlist.

One syllable only because our other ds is one syllable and our 2 dd's are 2 syllable and I was thinking that it might go. ..probably cos I love the name max and it really goes with our other names but oh is very against it. I was hoping to find another similar name that fits the bill!
