Hi Mums, sorry to crash mums net but Dad here.
I need some guidance.
Already dad to a 3 year old with a name constantly in the top 10.
Next one is due in 2 weeks for the blue team and wifey and I can't agree on a name. I am mr safe. Safe names bring now expectation, judgment, or ridicule.

Mrs unsafe wants something that isn't 'boring' and says I need to get with the times. Something that is different but not so zaney

Anyway, long short, she wants Hugo. A name I haven't been able to fully commit to . I constantly hear myself in the situation of the supermarket or (hopefully) on the football sidelines shouting his name and everyone turning to look at me with "you called your kid Hugo? Phaah!"

Being welsh I wanted Huw, my son has a welsh middle name so I wanted to continue with the theme. Huw James. Mrs would like Hugo James. So I suppose a nn would be Huw. So both winners right? But to me what's the point in calling him Hugo if we are going to constantly call him Huw?

Should I step into the light and into the brave new world? Is Hugo a bit of a whacky name or am I just mr boring?

I prefeer Huw personally

I do NOT think of Hugo as anything unusual and dont think any will turn around looking odly at you for Hugo.. It is fairly mainstream in my opinion.
