Thinking about using this name for my first baby due in 3 months... it has family connections and love the NN Albie :-)

I know that Arthur's getting more popular - is Albert too? Just curious as to whether there may be a few around over the next few years :-)

We have an Albert. I love it.

Albie, Archie & Artie are all very trendy at the moment. They may sound dated as grey fall out of favour again.

Sorry, they

We know quite a few little Albies (and Archies, Berties, Alfies, etc) and I do think it is quite a 'fashionable' name at the moment. Personally I'm not that keen on cutesy names.

I have an Albie also 3 in Feb! I've only had positive responses and never had the Alfie confusion. Although my mum does sometimes call him Aldi..

A friend of mine had a little 'Albie' last week...first time I've ever heard it...I like it xxx

It's a bit too old man for me but Albie is much better than Bertie.
