  • Here’s our list (sorry if they’ve all been covered already)...

    Alfred

    Archibald

    Arthur

    Barney

    Benedict

    Buddy

    Dexter

    Elvis

    Felix

    Frederick

    Maverick

    Otis

    Quentin

    Quincy

    Rupert

    Theodore

    Thomas (middle name)

    Wilfred

    Winston

    I have a definite favourite but H is still undecided.

  • We have an Angus and I love it, although sometime I do worry its a bit old mannish.  It does totally suit him though and gets commented on a lot (especially by old people!)  My H is scottish, I'm not, but we do live in Scotland.

    Bertie was on my list, but my H didn't like it.

  • Obviously I love Seth and think it's quite an old mans name, but H's 97 year old aunt told me it was peculiar so maybe not?! Recently I've decided I like the name Abe if we have another although these are maybe more biblical theme than old man.

    Other people I know with boys who have old names have Sidney, Wilbur, Wilfred, Stanley and Albert (known as Albie).

  • A friend has a Winston!
  • My neighbours have an Obie.

    Not sure if it is old man though.

  • Ducky, is Obie short for anything?

  • Some fab ones ladies. I love barnaby but its my fil and would never name a child after him!! Names are hard!!

  • Rupert was one we talked about a lot, I still really like it but not sure its a particularly strong name like george or arthur......hmmmmmmm

  • Counter - The neighbours' boy is just Obie.

    Could be short for Obadiah though.

  • Some of the ones I can think of at C's school are:

    Sydney and Stanley (who are brothers)

    Archie and Alfie (also brothers, although there are 4 Alfie's just in C's class so quite a popular name these days)

  • Winston is a FAB name (I think Billie Piper has a Winston). It is what we call J, as he resembled Winston Churchill when he was born, and it stuck. When I have called him Winston when out and about, a few people have commented on how lovely it was. Daren't tell them his real name after that...
