You might have seen this post last week of 10 Baby Girl Names I love (but won’t be using).
And if you’ve seen our gender reveal video (you can find it here) you will know that we are expecting a baby boy.
Well here are the baby boy names that we love but won’t be using 🙂
We’ve decided to call our little miracle baby Theo and I’m so excited to meet him!
10 Baby Boy Names I Love (but won’t be using)
I love love love this name. It has Hebrew origins and means ‘help’ but I first heard it being used in the Rebel Star Wars programme that Scott and Lily watch!
Indiana Jones *duh* – he was Scott’s hero growing up and I can’t help but think that any kid with this name would be pretty cool!
I loved this name and it was a major contender for Lily if she’d been a boy – however, it’s since become popular and we know a few!
Luke is Scott’s middle name and I love the idea of continuing it on to the next generation. Again it’s another Star Wars name (are you seeing a trend?!)
Scott really didn’t agree with me on this name – mainly because he thinks it’s a cat name! I loved the association with Felix Felicis – the good luck potion from Harry Potter!
Tristan was one of the knights of the round table in the King Arthur legends and it has a strong Celtic connection. Unfortunately, it’s also associated with the tragedy of Tristan and Isolde – which makes me sad so I probably wouldn’t have used it.
I love the name Wren and had only seen it used once in a children’s story from when I was younger but in recent years Katie from Mummy, Daddy, Me used it for her son.
Hey Jude is one of my favourite songs (by the band The Beatles) and I love this name.
However religious people might dislike it because of its association with Judas. I was quite conscious of that and didn’t want to offend some of our family so likely wouldn’t have used this name for that reason!
Do you like any of the names I loved?
Which one would you pick?
