    Oscar is my sisters dogs name, so I can't use that.

    I quite like Ted and Tikka but I like proper names. My girls are Holly and Lola.

    Your name suggestions are fab! Thank you :D

    Looked at him and 'Joseph' popped into my head.

    Josh is nice, too.

    He is ADORABLE anyway :)

    If you already have a girl called Holly, what about Ivor for your boy (as in Ivy).

    Lovely photo :)

    That is nice.

    My Nan passed in July, if we had got a girl we would have called her Lilly, I can't think of a male version of that, haha!:laugh:

    Sorry to hear about your Nan, and were considering Lily if a girl. Had you thought of Gillie?
    A Scottish description for a man employed as a Gamekeeper. Also, Border Terriers originate (I believe) from Scotland. ;)

    Thank you for all your help, fab names.

    So far the children like Beau, Ted and Pablo. I like Beau but hubby thinks it will confuse him when training and we say 'No' lol!!

    Arghhh, I hate him not having a name. lol!

    Gillie is sweet, and thank you, I miss my Nan so much:(
