... What else would I like?
I was convinced I was having a girl, but today's 20 week scan showed I was very much mistaken!
As you can see I like traditional names, help!

We liked all those but got the opposite result!
Also on our list before the pink one began was:
Toby
Rowan
George
And Dh was a fan of Herbert and Quentin but they were both vetoed by me

Out of interest, what names were on your girls list?

Clementine is a lovely name - I much prefer that to your boy name choices tbh

I love older names, the top of my list was Arthur, but do wouldn't have it,

Archie
Charlie
Alfie
(These maybe too common for you)

Ted
Teddy
Ronnie
Albert

To be honest I love Arthur out of them all smile

I love Arthur so much and have done for years, but DH doesn't sad
Archie and Alfie are our cats' names, we have nephew called Ted (love it) and not sure about the others!

Yes my DP always says if we called our son Arthur he would get called 'arty farty' and 'half a job' at school....
hmm

I have a Theodore - great name.

Really struggling with another boys name for the next one due this year - Arthur was on the list, but I don't like the yuppy nn 'Arty' and it's having a real boom in popularity around here - there will be 5 others in the class.

Dominic, Jonathan, Vincent & Max are also on our list but none of them seem right, so I will be watching this thread closely!

Much easier if it's a girl - I've always wanted a Florence and I don't care if half the country got there before me.

DejaB00 Fri 03-May-13 10:55:42

abird what reactions do you get from people with Theodore? I know I shouldn't care but I do! I think it's fab with nn Theo but I need to convince my DH for this one too...

Conrad
Theodore ( very common in my Greek family side)
Thaddeus

Love Arthur

We have a Arthur and a Ted (Edward). Ted was nearly a Theodore but DH thought it was too "posh" so changed at last minute. Others we liked were Reuben, Edgar, Rowan, George, Albert and Wilfred.

There are an Arthur and an Edward (Ted) in my family... Both 70ish.
I find it funny they're fashionable again.
