A reader named Kate, who has a daughter named Lucy, is expecting a baby boy and would like some name suggestions. Here’s what she says:
We want what a lot of people probably want – timeless, classic, slightly vintage and old fashioned, an ‘accepted’ name in the sense it’s known, but hopefully he is not one of three kids in class to have it.
So far, Kate and her husband like five names: William, Henry, Oliver, Duncan and Charles (nn Charlie). (She also likes the girl names Abigail, Alice, Clara and Hope.)
The baby’s middle name will be Hawkins, and his surname will begin with the letter t.
Here are some names that came to mind:
I stayed away from the current top 50 (and names that looked like they might be headed that way soon).
Which of the names above to you like best for Lucy’s brother? What other name suggestions can you come up with for Kate?
