Hope u don't mind me jumping in and asking this...
Mega problems picking baby boy names going on here! We already have a little girl who is four, her name is Amber May. Our surname is Petley. which means any names beginning with P are out, or ending 'ley' (such as Ashley) We'd like to avoid repeating first initials already in the household, which are A, L and G (I had a nightmare when I lived at home with my parents and my dad and I had the same initials and kept opening each others post!) and would like something that will go with Amber... we also need a middle name.
We've exhausted all the baby name books within our reach, and parents names as inspiration (quite old fashioned names, don't suit me and my husband!). Baby name sites just add to the problem as I don't know where to begin and before I know it I've spent 3 hours 'just looking'! I like names that are rare, but not too weird (no suggestions of 'Moon Unit' or 'Heavenly Babe' will be taken seriously!)! Any help greatly appreciated! Baby not due til mid March but I kind of get the feeling this name thing could go on for a long time... Amber was named by 22 weeks pregnant, but I am already 25 weeks with this one and have absolutely no idea what he's gonna be called!
