    Default So far, this kid will be called Batman...

    Boys names? We can't agree on anything... Boys names are so hard!! There's lots of names we like but just couldn't imagine actually calling them out at the play ground - or it eventually being on his CV.

    What did you or your friends call your little dudes?

    That's why we went with traditional, single syllable, easy to spell and not unusual in anyway.

    Most of our friends have used traditional names, as have we for our DS. I'm not a fan of a lot of the modern/made up names these days.

    Some names of boys I know: Oscar (we have 3 friends with Oscars!), Thomas, Samuel, Cooper, Jeremy, Finn, Leo.

    I like Alexander, James, Rupert, Oliver, Henry.

    If I ever have another DS he will be called George.

    Boys names we had on our short list but never used were:

    Ari
    Archie
    Charlie (Charles officially)
    Billy (William officially)
    Nicholas
    Christopher (Chris)
    Patrick

    There is a little boy in DD's class called Ike (his real name is Isaac but everyone calls him Ike - I really like this)

    Goodluck!

    We had Luke picked for a boy.
    Nice and simple.

    We had a girl though and called her Leila... If we were to have a boy in the future I don't think we could use Luke, sounds to Star Wars when it's with dd for me
    Our other choices would have been James, Sebastian, Joshua, Cameron.

    I prefer simple strong names for boys.
