    I love Xanthe, Carys, Scout & Seraphine. I might use Carys but concerned she'd have to regularly correct people.

    For boys I like Gabriel (Gabe), Gage, Hayden, Kellan and Jensen. Hubby feels they are too feminine. Javier I also love but we're not Spanish.

    My ds is Jensen, I love it, I think it's very masculine ( obviously bias)

    I agree Reag I think Jensen is awesome. Jensen Button & Jensen Ackles are fine examples. I think he's worried in an Aussie playground he'll get Jeni.

    My husband and I love the name Sachen for a boy. It may be spelt differently actually. I think it's Sri Lankan, there is a cricketer Sachen Tendulker (sp??)

    But the thing is, my hubby and I are both very pale with v light hair and eyes etc. as kids we both had almost white hair. So I just think the name Sachen would seem wrong on a little boy who may look almost albino!!!
    But I'm now 34 weeks pregnant and starting to not worry about that as much cos i love the name so much. Although DH is still pretty adamant it won't suit our boy.

    Any thoughts?

    I always liked Thaine and Lex as names when I was looking at baby names for both boys but I'd never have the guts to use them as Lex most people associate with the evil guy from superman and Thaine The Pain is not necessarily the playground taunt I would want my son to have.
    Caine was also another one but the religious reference to murdering your own brother always put me off.

    I think Sachen/Sachin is a great name! Even though it's Sanskrit it doesn't sound too dissimilar to European names. Sachin Tendulkar's name is spelled with an 'i', but I think the 'e' spelling is more European looking, which you may prefer. Sachin Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer and an all-round awesome person. He's admired internationally not just for his skill, but for his humility and hard work. He would be a great namesake for your son!

    I believe the name Txarli is Basque, from the Basque region in France and Spain. Tx is pronounced 'ch' so, yes, it would be pronounced 'Charlie'.

    Thanks for your comments, hope I can convince DH. My husband really admires Sachin Tendulkar so I might have some luck. I'd be proud to have a son sharing his name.
