I just wanted to say I love the name Hamish and I'm actually considering it for our first son who is due soon. What is your experience of having a son with this name - do you come across it alot? I'm worried it might be getting too popular (we are in Australia too).
Of your name choices I really love Finn and Finlay as well as Alfred (Alfie) and I also agree the Lachlan goes very well with Hamish. Good luck!

Thank you for the suggestions. I like Malachi but vetoed it as it is NN is close to my NN. I also like milo but it is a popular milk drink here, I also like Callum and Owen but can't use them
Thank you for your response, I was hoping to get another Aussie.
I like Henry an Harry but would prefer not to have 2 H names. Love Lachlan as well but way too popular around here. Toby not a fan but I like Miles. I personally am a Gus fan and my husband likes Ferg so I think I am leaning towards Fergus
Hamish is a great name and he suits it well, I am usually into nick names but don't have one for him yet. We actually had to name him immediately after birth as he had to go to another hospital for intensive care. Our name shortlist was Hamish, Heath, Angus and Fergus. Hamish was the first name out of my mouth so hat is what we called him! He attends daycare and is the only Hamish there. I also only know of 1 other Hamish but he is 14. Thank you for your thought about my names, much appreciated.

Alfred and Louis are good solid names, without being overly popular (although I think Alfie, the nn, is in the top 10 in the UK). They also have lots of nickname possibilities.
Archer and Finn are perfectly good, although I think they may both end up being creatures of this decade, the way Jason was in the US in the 70's.
I do like Angus. Yes, it is true that if your kids are named Angus and Hamish, people will just assume your husband will be wearing a kilt at the neighborhood barbecue. Bruce, Charles, Neil, and Kenneth are also good options for a nod to Scottish heritage. I will also second the poster above who suggested Walter.

I have no problem with a family which has Scottish style names, in fact I love it and here are a few more ideas to think about.
Cormac (I love the nn of Mac)
Dermot (unusual but I find it appealing)
Donovan ( I like the full name but not so fond of nn Don)
Cooper (Yes, it is popular but Hamish and Cooper make a good pair. My daughter's second baby was going to be named Lachlan which was Dad's middle name and I love it, sorry it is too popular for you).
Philip in the first name spot with the great nn of Pip.
Flynn is really nice. I like its modern vibe.
Vaughan such a handsome name
Mother to Miles and Jacquelyn, and Nanny to five grandchildren
