I guess that would be bad, but honestly, not one single boy name is sparking for me - not one! For awhile, I was liking Seamus. But DH hates it so very much that I've soured on it. Dashiell appeals to me, but only in the abstract. I'm not really feeling it, if that makes any sense - not sure why. I like Graham and Miles and Merrick and Conall and Tavish, but they don't feel like 'the name' to me.

Can you help me give this one more shot? I'd really appreciate any suggestions. At this point, I'm just looking for an established name that's a little off the beaten path - not a surname, not made up, not too trendy. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

How about going slightly retro and then a little forward?

Do you have a default naming rule or would the nurses really get to name a baby if it went unclaimed?


We actually have a rule, the baby is to be named within 6 months and if no name is provided the default is the King's name for a boy and the Queen's for a girl - currently the former King and the Crown Prince were and are Frederik and the present Queen is Margrethe so that's easy. No one has been named according to the rule in recent memory though LOL. Old records reflect the names

Working from:
Dashiell Graham Miles Merrick Conall Tavish

Hamish was the first name that occurred to me... don't even know how to pronounce it though. Frederik's not bad, really, either.

I went through and kind of free-associated based on your namrs, writing down everything that came into my head. I included all of that in case it sparks something for you, but here's what sticks out as a possible match for you:
Declan, Daryl, Derek/Derrick, Emerick, Ferrell, Herschel, Haskell, Hamil, Carroll, Merrill, Marek, Niall, Terrell, Tirrell, Wendell, Bram, Shem, Colm, Dominick, Eames, Rom, Giles, Milo, Lyle, James, Lyons, Niles, Shea, Silas, Travers, Travis, Ives, Auric, Herrick, Yorrick, Kirk, Alec Pollux, Alec, Tobit, Warwick, Donnelly, Donal, Gannet, Hammett, Hamnet, Kendall, Lyell, Lowell, Linus, Rune, Nigel, Schuylar, Scanlon, Irving, Stowell, Basil, Averill, Axel, Randall, Amos, Avis, Sean, Eoin/Ian/Iain, Shane, Ferris, Marshall

That's a good idea- to have a default naming rule.

I'm still voting for Dashiell. It's just so perfect, imo. I really like Frederik as a mn, though.
