    French/Scottish baby boy

    A young 16th Century couple (Scottish mother, French father), living amongst the French Court, have a baby boy. A baby boy that is currently without a name.

    I looked a little at names amongst Scottish nobility at the time and liked Gillespie, Archibald, Edmund, Blair etc but nothing really felt right so, what would you call him?

    Any and all names are welcome and thanks in advance!!
    Not expecting but hopefully one day that will change.

    Hm. I looked up some Scottish names and although I'm not quite sure what I think, here's some names I found. I've asterisked my favorites.
    Malcolm (this is a really old name, I know)
    *Magnus
    Gordon
    *Hugh
    *Callum (or Calum)
    Duncan
    Andrew (a bit predictable, maybe?)
    Hope this helps! Good luck!
    Credo.
    Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with the golden and silver light,
    the blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and the half light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet;
    but I being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

    Thanks for the replies, folks, much appreciated.

    As much as I love Magnus and Hugh, Amis and Ranulph, I still don't feel like they're quite right.

    Any other suggestions, berries??

    How about Calvin? Calvinism was big among the Scots during this time period. It's the reformers surname, but I can easily imagine it being given to a boy at this time in history.
