Struggling to come up baby boy names; preferably related to climbing/mountains/nature. Being a teacher it is really difficult to find a name that I don't associated with pupils.

All I've managed to come up with so far is Brenin and Nevis.

Anyone got any inspiration?

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.

In reply to absolutebeginner: Alasdair, as in Sgurr Alasdair on Skye. Incidentally my sister is named Fiona, and there is a Sgurr Fiona on An Teallach.

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.

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.

In reply to absolutebeginner: Curse him for life and call him Liathach; although you could shorten that to Lee.

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.

Moac.

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.

Jacob (Ladder)

Ben (Nevis)
Alder
Lawers

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?

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.
