Sounds cool. I want the name to have some meaning, on some level, as opposed to just something we liked.

Current favourite is Archie, named after gf's grandfather, and my great grandfather. Works well with my slightly clumsy surname.

Archie only works when they're a baby or when they're 90-odd, though.

Congrats. My wife gave birth to our fist 4 weeks ago. Had a little boy and called him Joel. It's the best feeling ever being a dad, but the sleep deprivation is worse than I ever expected.

I hate Archie. And Alfie. And Tommy.

All those shitty southerner names that everybody is using on their poor strawberry floating kids.

We picked Finn because it was the name of our favourite pub in Cornwall (Finn McCouls).

If people ask and i dont want then to know i named my son after a pub, I just say that I like celtic names, and its short, easy to remember and there's not too many Finns these days.

I think you should call him Ben, Poser. It's a cracking name.

You don't hear many people saying "oh look at little baby Gary".

Gary is a great name, and very rare. Call your son Gary.

I chipped a tenner in last time there was a whip-round. So what you'd be giving me is a refund.
