    Default Help - stuck with name for number 2!!

    Hi all, looking for some ideas for boy number 2...

    Our first is Samuel John

    Criteria (well my criteria 😉)

    1) no "W" names (surname starts with W and don't like WW)

    2) I like longer names that can be shortened - particularly like ones that have a "y" or "ie" on the end of the shortened version (Picked Samuel for our first as love Samuel, Sammy and Sam)

    3) thinking of using Peter or Douglas as a middle name (family significance)

    4) names that are out are: Benjamin (hubby/dads name), Charles (Grandpas name), Archibald (dogs name), Oscar (am a dog groomer by trade and every second male dog is Oscar 😂)...

    5) I like to err on the more traditional/older names side...

    I think that is it... So if you have any ideas - we are open to them!!

    Anthony (can be shortened to Ant, Tony) ? Anthony Douglas or Anthony Peter sound good. Good luck, picking names for #2, and #3 just get harder!
