    My hubby has said that I can choose our new sons name and after showing him my list he hasn't taken anything off it which isn't helpful as I need to narrow it down!! Our first son is called Daniel and his middle name is Alexander so something that doesn't clash and the potential middle names for new bubs are Scott or Campbell. My names are as follows but any other suggestions would be welcome!! Xx

    Jude
    Jamie
    Blair
    Ethan
    Brodie
    Alfie
    Harry
    Archie
    Calum
    Flynn

    It's lovely that your oh has let you choose :)

    I like all the names on your list but I especially like

    Brodie (on my list aswell :) )
    Alfie
    Harry
    Archie

    I know that's not much help, but they are all just lovely

    I'm finding though as soon as I start to settle on a name, I begin hearing it everywhere I go, which then starts to put me off.

    My oh gave me the following list of names that he liked

    Noah, Bradley, Harry, Brody, Cooper, Corey, Austin and Quinn

    Boys names are just so difficult :-(

    I asked my four year old today (he's got a global development delay and is only just learning to walk and talk) and he was trying to repeat each name after me - funnily enough he can say Jude and Archie as clear as day!! Xx

    Awww, that's sweet.

    When I was pregnant with my second baby I liked the name Kiara (kee-ar-ah)... my 2yr old couldn't pronounce it and when you asked what the baby was called they said "Kara-wahwah" lol. Was so cute & funny.
    (Didn't end up going with that name in the end though lol)

    I love the name Campbell as a middle name , not keen on Scott to be honest



    Ethan Campbell sounds lovely as charming
    Alfie doesn't really go with Campbell and is very popular where I live
    Archie - again very popular in my area ( there's like 4 that I know )

    A short name might go best as Campbell's quite a long name . Although you will find longer names that go with it

    William Campbell might be nice
    Can have Dan and will when they are older

    Finn
    Hugh /huw
    Benny /Ben / Benjamin

    Ethan Campbell does sound lovely.

    Jude just reminds me of Jude Law - theres a Jude Law in Jackson's preschool.

    I am just glad this time and last time it was a case of I suggested a name and luckily OH loved it.

    Can be quite difficult, so its good you have the upper hand.

    Thanks for the suggestions ladies - it's so difficult!! Scott Campbell is my husbands first and middle name which were suggested by my parents in law lol!! Our first son Daniel Akexander is named after my father in laws dad Daniel and my mother in laws dad Alexander. I would have liked to have used a family name from my side this time, particularly, as my dad has passed away but his name was Norman and I'm not sure I can inflict that on a child and my grandpas name was Torquil - you can see my dilemma!! Their middle names of John and Crichton have already been widely used in my family so I'm at a loss!! Xx

    Norman is a no go lol and I have only ever met one torquil I hadn't heard of it before. Other people seemed to know of it but I didn't think it was a real name. No offense :p the guy I knew was lovely though he got called T or torq.

    How about using Campbell as a first name? I love surnames I have a Jackson and Carter on the way. But I have seen Campbell used once recently for a wee boy. Scott is my wee brothers name. Not a lot of Scott's about now.

    I think there's a few other names for John too, like Jack. One of the meanings of Jackson is son of Jack/John. I think Jack and Ian both mean John lmao I dunno for sure about the Ian but it rings a bell somewhere.

    Good luck!
