    Default Boys name options

    Even though we are still MONTHS of having to make a decision, hubby and I have pretty firmly set ourselves on our girls name (Ember Riley). But boys names seem to be a bit more difficult. We threw out one idea over the weekend for reasons I won't go into, but I have now got my heart set on two new options (note: Riley needs to be the middle name for personal reasons).

    Sebastian Riley (shortened to Seb or Sebby)
    Archer Riley (shortened to Archie).

    Any opinions on the above?

    I like Sebastian. Archer is okay too, but I think it's probably going to become a bit more common.

    They're both lovely but I have a real soft spot for Sebastian so that gets my vote.

    I would go for Sebastian. Archer is way too popular for my liking.

    Archer is great, I'm not a huge fan of the shortened versions of Sebastian
