Strong Scottish Boys Names

Postby FestiveTidings » 23 Feb 2014, 20:36

I need inspiration.

Both DH have kind of gone off our original list of boys names so we are looking at alternatives.

The problem is, nothing seems to be jumping out at me like it did with Roo's. My googling just be substandard as it's all the same stuff being churned up and no matter how many times google throws it at me, I'm not that keen on Angus!

We want to continue our Scottish theme, be Gaelic if possible and be quite a "strong" name. We kind of set a precedent with Roo and we need a name that stands shoulder to shoulder with that.

Any suggestions?

Hard to say offer matching suggestions without R's name. Would you mind PMing it?

I can keep working my way through the rest of the book, if you'd like... :)

It's closer to 'Charlie' than it looks but Tintin would be a much better adviser.

X-post - ha!

My faves are Struan and Hector!

Good luck name-hunting - I know the feeling, we painted ourself into a bit of a corner with frog's name but with forum's help we got there.

I come from a family of Duncans and Donalds (and Ninian - but that one not so strong!)

We were going to call Elodie, Rory if she was a boy.
Mummy to 3 scrumptious BLWers, who sometimes rebel + ask for spoonfeeding (2007, 2010, 2013). Antilop chair, slings, cloth nappies, no steam mop but awaiting permission for special handshake which probably involves porridge.
