I have a Seth and we always get lovely compliments on how much his name is liked. Has to be my fave!!

Seth please.

Love Sebastian and like Max. Zachary does nothing for me and I really dislike Henry and Seth.

Seth is a lovely name, it puts me in mind of a big strong dependable man. I don't get Milo either, it is the name of a big purple tweenie.

Henry is a bit blah. I love Milo fwiw, but also adore Seth. I think it's a lovely name.

Seth is my favourite - it's brilliant. I far prefer it to Henry which is much more predictable.

Love Henry and George
Like Max and Sebastian

Indifferent to the others

Henry.

Max and Zachary

Isn't Milo a malted chocolate drink?

Harrison? I have one of those. He's lovely smile

I like Max and Zach (not keen on Zachary). I'm probably going to offend people with my views on the others, but:-

Milo makes me think of the Tweenies
Stanley is for very old men
Henry and George are for middle aged and portly bank managers
Seth is purely for the Amish
Sebastian is very Brideshead Revisited.

I love the name Zachary x

Clary Sat 06-Oct-12 00:21:06

Of your choices I prefer Stanley, George and Henry.

Stanley vetoed by DH; George is DS2's middle name. There are quite a few Georges around tho, I teach four (years 7-9) in a not especially middle class area (most popular names at the school are Jordan and Josh); Stan a bt more unusual.

Max is very popular btw. I only say this about popularity as the other names you list are less often seen. By me anyway.

Seth ,and love George but is prob way too popular . What about Angus ,Tobias or Hugo. I agree that Milo just makes me think of a Tweenie and I knew a very strange child called Sebastian which would put me off.

SirBoobAlot Sat 06-Oct-12 00:06:01

Sebastian
George
Henry

Really dislike the rest. Least favourite would be Stanley.

Ham69 Sat 06-Oct-12 00:00:41

Love Milo by the way, followed by Seth.

Beamur Fri 05-Oct-12 23:22:10

I like all of your names.
But, I'm kinda with you on Seth, my next favourite of your list would be Stanley.
My least favourite would be Zachary and Max.
Chum of mine had an Edwin, nn Ted which I like a lot.

Wilbur
Edward
Albert (Albie)

Thank you everyone!

I'm not sure I get Milo either it doesn't feel right nag fir me George is too popular (wanted to stay away from top 10's and I think George is around that mark).

So far I think it's between Seth and Henry but may go back to the drawing board to see if there are any more that jump out!

Anonymumous Fri 05-Oct-12 22:32:00

Ugh, I hate Milo. It's one of those names I just don't 'get'. It makes me think of a fat Tweenie or a silo. Seth is much nicer. And I love Stanley - I would have used it myself except I don't find the meaning very inspiring. Actually I like pretty much all of your names except Milo.

(P.S. DS1 has FOUR Georges in his class at school, which would put me off that name somewhat!)

PickledFanjoCat Fri 05-Oct-12 21:46:12

Henry is the best name like, ever !

tanfastic Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:50

Stanley and Seth smile

Bumpstart Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:33

I like sebastian and Stanley

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 05-Oct-12 21:45:24

Sebastian

I have a Seth, really love it, but occasionally people think I'm saying "Seff" (I don't have a lisp!), I have to say "no, Seth with a tee-haich".

My fave name whilst pg was Monty but it didn't suit him.
