Due in 4 weeks, can't decide which name..... also which goes best with Jacob (our other son).

I

kneedeepindaisies -- there's the tricky aspect, because I do rather fancy Miles Jupp in anything else/as himself, but not as Archie by any stretch of the imagination.

Sorry, OP, for derailing your thread. They are both fine names; maybe try referring to the baby as "Archie" for a week and then as "Spencer" for a week and see which sounds right?

Archie is such a good name and willl stand the test of time too, Archibald is perhaps a step too far.

Lol thank you for your advice and opinions, I have never seen balamory. I think Archie is winning at the moment

Tolliver- As long as no one says Edie Mcredie I think it will all be ok.

Did you know she was one of the young women capering about naked outside in The Wicker Man ?

Naked Edie Mcredie!

Balamory will never be the same again. grin

Don't really like either sorry but at a push Archie.

Love Spencer - it's on my list but I don't think my husband's convinced.

I like Archie but I have a definite preference for giving a child a "full" name that can then be shortened, but am not so keen on Archibald. Archer?

I think they both go with Jacob well smile Lots of little Archies around at the moment. My friend just had a Spencer and half of me thinks cool, half thinks hmmmm. It will depend on his character.

My nephew is called Archie, I shorted it to arch all the time when I speak to him or call for him, it's really odd people don't like names because "they aren't proper"

I do prefer archie to. There's lots of older generation men called Archie so it seems to be standing the test of time.smile

Out the two I prefer Spencer as there are so many Archies. There are 4 at my DS nursery, it's very confusing. I also heard one older boy gets called Archibald even though that is not his BC name.

I'd pick Spencer,just because its not as popular as Archie! Archie's seem to be everywhere at the moment...

But yes they are both Balamory characters. Archie is the inventor who lives in a pink house and wears a kilt and pink jumper and Spencer is a painter and lives in an orange house...youtube should enlighten you and probably put you off both names
