Strong and classic? Or other?! Opinions please ladies. Thanks in advance :-)

we wanted to call our son Rupert James Thomas this but had to go with Robert instead because it is a family name and it was a bit political. I love it - do it.

As for Rueben, Ruaraidh or Rudiah, sorry BebopdingALing - I hate them all.

Really like it. As well as the shortening to Roo.

All the Ruperts I've known have been lovely

Love the whole name,
Love Roo, Rudy and RJ.

A winner!

Agree that Rupert is MUCH nicer than Rudolph (Rudy = Rude-y to me), Rudiah or Ruaraidh (however that is pronounced...).

Ruaraidh is pronounced Rory, or thereabouts. Much stronger than Rupert, that does make me think of a very posh chinless wonder, unfortunately, sorry. Rupert the Bear?

Not keen on Rupert, sorry. Sounds a bit wet to me. And also reminds me of Rupert the Bear.

Love James though.

LOVE it! Especially Rupert, unusual yet easy to say and spell and so strong.

I LOVE it! I may have to steal it.... ;-)
