I know a lovely supercool little Edwin age 4. Good choice OP!

Zappo - agree re Ethan and Henry/Harry. I like Fred but it doesn't work with our surname. Arthur I love but Art definitely doesn't work with our surname, sadly!

Thermals I've always liked Felix and Rufus (pre-pregnancy) but now I'm actually pregnant I don't know if I'm so sure! I love Benedict but husband's not keen.

MadamJ I like Darwin! We had a Darwin reading at our wedding.

Viva Tedbar! I quite like it but my fairly traditional family would probably phase me out...

All much appreciated, please keep them coming!

I knew a Tedbar which I thought was a fab name.

How about Frederick, Freddie (Fred)-more popular but not too popular

Arthur (Art)- too old fashioned? nn too American

Ethan- too popular

Henry (Harry, Hal)- too regal?

I really like Nathaniel, that's on my list (nn Nate).

I violently dislike Bryn, I don't know why!

I do like Wilfred but it makes me a bit sad for some reason - poss because of Wilfred Owen and also reminds me of Wilbur, the runt in Charlotte's Web...

Thanks Zappo and TheFun - responses much appreciated.

I love Theodore (NN Theo or Ted) but my husband isn't as keen...I think I could work on this though.

I guess Edward isn't actually that popular at the moment - I think maybe it's just because I was at school in the 90s with quite a few of them, s in my head Edwards at ten-a-penny, which probably isn't actually the case!

Love Edward and don't think it's popular at all at the moment.

How about Edgar, Theo, Theodore (nn Ted)

How do you feel about Edwin? It's always been on my radar but is growing on me more and more,

Can you suggest anything else similar that I might like? (NNs of Ned and Ted aren't essential, I just quite like them).

I'm not too keen on Edmund and think Edward is too popular.
