I've namechanged to preserve anonymity.

I think it might need to be something that doesn't end in -ie or -y, though I like a couple of of those names. I quite like traditional/old-fashioned names.

Mabel
Jemima
Mary - DH not convinced.
Polly - too plain?

Barnaby - too many "b"s to go with Betsy?
Stanley - DH not convinced.
Felix - quite like it but not sure if it's a bit pansy (no idea why I think this).
Spike - I love it but not sure we're brave enough really.

Surname begins with T.

I love Ralph, Martha, George, Kitty, Delilah, Matilda, Grace, but already in use by close friends!

Do you know a little Betsy? What are her siblings called?
