My love has been absolutely against talking future baby names with me since our daughter was born, which is fine by me, but yesterday while we were hanging out in the garden and I was looking through my baby name books he all of the sudden said: "You should put Gareth on your list."
Gareth? I have never considered this name before. He is one of my favourite knights (of that round table, yes) and I love Tennyson's Idylls of the King, but for some reason I have always associated the name with Gareth Southgate (football player for various half decent English football clubs). Anyway, I'm kind of starting to like it... it's knightly, handsome and usable. So what do you lovelies think? Rosalind and Gareth? Some awesome combos spring to mind?
Gareth should definitely be on your list, if only because HE brought it up!
Rosalind and Gareth have the same feel, though I prefer Jared to Gareth. But if your SO likes it and you also do, why not? Some suggestions for middle name:
What do you think?
It definitely has the same medieval feel as Rosalind, and the meaning is lovely, but I don't think I'm liking Gareth :( it might grow on me, but...
