I’m somewhat slightly obsessed with baby names! I searched for ages trying to find unique names that I liked. I wanted authentic names, that were old, rare and had a meaning or origin. We also wanted Scottish names to go with their surname and in memory of their Scottish Grandad, David.
I am one of those people that does consider the impact a name has, as a first impression on a CV for example. I think our boys have got strong, unique names, that will serve them well, whatever path they choose.
