Thoughts on Alaric? It means "ruler of all" and I've become rather taken with it.

I'm not pregnant btw. Just curious.

Your husband thinks Alaric is pretentious?!

But that's MAD.

I'd also assume you were a massive Vampire Diaries fan.

What about Aric? Is it the old English and much nicer version of Eric?

Love it.

Reminds me of celeriac. I don't like celeriac.

Sounds like a vegetable - good job you aren't pregnant grin

I love Celeriac - the veg, dont like Alaric as a name. Too Vampire Diaries.

I can imagine a lot of DAmon, Stefan, Matt, Alaric etc etc being in the top 10 most popular names in a few years.

I immediately thought of the Katherine Kurtz deryni books.

I met one yesterday as it happens. Aged maybe early thirties. He carried it off well. I did have to ask for his name to be repeated though. I usually find that people do that with my name too though.

I've just come back to this and am intrigued by the deleted comments!

I do like the Aric suggestion. And laughed at the "Ricky" as a nickname! grin that's just hilarious!

I quite like it. It's unusual but then so are quite a few names which have sprung into fashion recently - Atticus, Orlando etc.

I love it, but then I really like names with Norman associations like Alan, Hugh and Alaric

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Wed 10-Apr-13 00:10:34

Eric's nice.

Sooooo OP...are you a TVD fan?

Like it on a man, doesn't sound right on a child though (IMO)

I like it. Absolutely fine for a child - there are obvious built-in diminutives if they suit him better.

Mind you, I love celeriac.

thermalsinapril Wed 10-Apr-13 09:47:09

Celeriac would make a great name, only problem is that it isn't one grin

KittenOfDoom Wed 10-Apr-13 13:31:08

No, but it's fabulous roasted, mashed or made into oven chips grin
