I just had to reply as my son is Archer (so obviously I love the name!).
We don't use the nickname Archie - it's too cutesy for our taste (I never dressed him in baby blue for the same reason). ...
My gorgous boy is Archer Nelson.
His middle name was decided when I was a teenager - it's my maiden name, and my husband was on board with that idea even when we were dating (his mn is his...
One of the children next door is Agatha (goes by Aggie). She's about 10?
We're in Australia, but her mum is English.
I think it's cute!
It goes very well with her siblings names (B3rti3, V1olet...
Ooh, I just remembered that I went to school with a girl called Danijela (went by Dani) and her brother was Deni. I always thought his name was Danny too (until fb came about and I saw it in print).

Harrison Guthrie is a great name, but I can definitely see how it would cause confusion. Especially with such a small age gap - it's not like they can be "big and little".
I'm not sure that...

I know an Elora, so I have to admit I associate the name with her and love it.
Another option, Eliora? This is my niece's name, and we call her Ellie a lot of the time, but I like her full name...

I pronounce it TAH-lee-uh (if that makes sense).
I'm in Australia, and in my experience (having worn the name for 29 years), most people pronounce it like that here. Some say tuh-LEE-uh, and my...

Thank you for the suggestions, there are some great ones there. Keep them coming though, hubby has a strong veto reflex.
@kitkat26, that's a great idea, I will suggest it to my husband. Thank you....

My husband and I are TTC#2. Our son, Archer Nelson C---er, is 17 months old.
Nelson is my maiden name, our last name is 2 syllables and rhymes with air.
If we have a second son he...
I prefer Angus.
I like Otis, but it reminds me of "Milo and Otis" so I have trouble picturing it on a human.
However, very good friends of mine named their son Angus and I love it! I've always...

I've already replied, but I was talking to my mother-in-law about names recently and found it interesting.
My husband and his middle sister both have very stock-standard 70's-80's names, and their...
I know a family of grown siblings who are Br@nd0n, Br@nd1, Br1ttan1 and Bre-@nn@
Apparently their parents weren't aiming to match them, they just liked the names in their own right.

Not at all!
My parents had very traditional boys' names chosen (Michael, Christopher, Allen, Andrew) - but never got to use them.
My sisters and I all have very uncommon first names, 3 syllables,...
I told my mother what I was thinking, and she didn't think it was necessary at all - because she sees my son's middle name as being in honour of my whole side on the family,...
Thanks Imogeneve :)
Yes, thinking Astrid first. I love your suggestions (and your kids' names - Oscar, Celeste and Lilian are all in my top 10!)
Nora is lovely - she would share initials with...
My husband and I are brainstorming girls' names.
We already have a son, and a possible second son is all-but-named, but we have issues with girls' names.
We LOVE the name Astrid, and by...

My husband and I are not expecting, nor are we even TTC#2. But we will one day, and I like to dream ;)
Our son is Archer Nelson C--
Nelson is my maiden name.
If we have a second boy,...

Yep, you really can't tell what you'll get.
My dad is fair, with hazel eyes and thin, straight, dark brown hair.
My mum is olive, with amber/brown eyes and thick, black, curly hair.
I have an Archer, and Astrid is our #1 pick for a hypothetical future daughter - so I hope they go together?
But then, I really love "A" names, but don't want them too matchy.
I do think any...
My son has a little boy called Lion in his nursery group (he'd be about 8 months old?). It was weird at first, but I've gotten used to seeing it and hearing it as a name.It's certainly not my taste...
