/ Baby boy climbing/mountain/nature related names
All I've managed to come up with so far is Brenin and Nevis.
Anyone got any inspiration?
Rikki Tikki Tavi?
Or pick Juan you actually like?
Rowan (otherwise known as the mountain ash)
Hows about CLIFF?
Two for girls:
Rather than branding your child with a name that seems cool to you now, why not name them with a trad name (trad? for a boy) and use a nickname which can easily be dropped if it falls out of fashion?
Pals have kids with nicknames like bear, rocket, ace, flash, bobby dazzler. If they stick, all well and good.
I don't know if my mum knows these mountain links, because I'm certain my dad had that in mind...
Just wanted to say I feel your dilemma! We have a new arrival due to make an appearance in May (unsure of sex). I'm a primary teacher too, and as a result so many names have been struck off the list as a result! For what it's worth we think we gonna go for a traditional name like Jake or Martha, both of which have a Hebrew origin, which is a coincidence as both my siblings and myself all have Hebrew names too.
mountain bike designer Brant Richards is allegedly named after Brant on clogwyn y grochan... what's your favourite route called?
Whatever you decide, just remember that at some point in his life, he'll have to walk into a job interview and say words to the effect of; "Hi, I'm Bowline Jones". Do the lad a favour and call him Dave.
But I'd call him John and be done with it. For a name that was once so popular it rather seems to fallen from attention in favour of Jack.
"Troll" would be appropriate.
Menlove Strapcans Beginner
Three pebbble slab
Glen , River , Carvaig .
Climbing Technology . Hex . Boreal . Aurora .
So if he's your first born he would be the 'Original Moac'.
And then if you had another lad at a later date, he would be 'Baby Moac'.
Actually these references would probably only resonate with his grandparents.
Struan - it means small stream :-)
How about a traditional Gaelic name like Ciche (as in Sgurr na Ciche).
Trying to create monikers out of features and objects can quickly get ontrived and silly
But no seriously, Ben is a good solid name (easy to shout) as you know we went with Jamie. I can't remember how long you get to register the wee fella but we took up to the last day. Tried out new names on a daily basis. As the deadline approached we were on to morning name and afternoon names. finally settled on Jamie as it seemed to fit.
Wait till he's out. It'll be obvious then.
Y will be in touch no doubt.
There's always Farquhar, Findlay and Alisdair. Tarquill or Quentin anybody?
Idwal is quite nice I think.
I think Idwal was a prince who drowned in the Llyn beneath the Slabs.
> I think Idwal was a prince who drowned in the Llyn beneath the Slabs.
He was a prince and he did drown but was tricked to go swimming in the lake by his 'evil' cousin so the cousin could get all Idwals dads money and land.
Idwals dad found out about the cousins plan and put a curse on the lake. Nothing can ever fly over the lake from one side to the direct opposite.
Its all true honestly. If you dont believe me go and watch the birds above the lake.
Brodie - means 'man of the earth'
Flynn - means 'son of the red haired one' (but who cares, just a cool sounding name!)
First name: Aleister
Second name: Crowley
After some careful consideration I think the following all have merits:
Bivvy & Bothy (incase of twins)
