Hi,

our DS was born today!

We have a list of names but I wanted to ask the opinions of your good selves!

We are thinking about;

Wyatt
Bertie
Felixstowe
Dexter
Cooper
Flynn
Jesse

Any thoughts would be welcomed!

Cheers

Ha!! Autocorrect - felix

Congratulations, what name does he look like?

From your list I like Dexter best. I don't like the surname sounding ones much and although Flynn isn't too bad.

Hassled Sun 04-Aug-13 18:39:58

Congratulations!

Felixstowe is a fairly grim port. Don't go there (literally or name-wise). Apologies Felixstowe-fans.

Of the others, my favourites are Bertie or Jesse.

Coconutty Sun 04-Aug-13 18:40:24

Felix is okay too - I thought Felixstowe was a bit much!!

Jambo77 Sun 04-Aug-13 18:43:28

Haha!! Thanks all!

We loved Bertie - but upon meeting him , it doesn't suit him.... We don't think!

I like:

Flynn
Jesse
Bertie
Dexter

In that order,the others are really not good.

Congratulations flowers

Jesse

I love Wyatt, my friend has a three month old called this, he is adorable.

formicadinosaur Sun 04-Aug-13 18:54:26

Congrats!!!!!!! Bertie is just too cute. Love it. Flynn and dexter also.

wizzler Sun 04-Aug-13 18:56:01

Like Dexter, prefer Flynn

Jambo77 Sun 04-Aug-13 18:56:44

The thing is I have a mental image of him when he's 21 or older , introducing himself as Jesse or Bertie?

Am I being daft in thinking they are names that suit a child but not an adult?

Catnap26 Sun 04-Aug-13 19:01:04

I love dexter

Bertie is perhaps a little childish,not Jesse though I don't think...how do you feel about Albert on the birth cert' and Bertie for everyday? Then he has more options as an adult.

ChippingInHopHopHop Sun 04-Aug-13 19:02:24

Congratulations!!! How heavy was he? How are you feeling??

I like Cooper best (although it's not one I'd choose iyswim).

Bertie sounds like a bloke in his 80's grin

Jesse - American music.

Dexter - Labrador.

Wyatt -Old/boring

Felix - cat

Flynn - 2nd best, but not keen

But hey - that's only my opinion, you'd probably think my choices were Australian surfie or boring!! LOL

Jambo77 Sun 04-Aug-13 19:05:23

He's 6lbs 14oz! Two weeks early!!

And I'm infatuated with him already!!

Queazy Sun 04-Aug-13 19:25:34

I vote Bertie! Gorgeoussmile

HelpMePleaseImConfused Sun 04-Aug-13 20:26:25

I know an incredibly cute baby bertie so after previously not liking it, love it. Although if it doesnt suit him i also like Felix and Flynn from your list! Congratulations!

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 04-Aug-13 20:29:12

Congratulations smile I like Flynn and love Bertie if its a nn for Albert which is a fabulous name

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 04-Aug-13 20:30:29

The only one that isn't stupid is Bertie. Please just don't.

Bowlersarm Sun 04-Aug-13 20:35:53

If you like Bertie but can't envisage him as a 21 year old Bertie, why don't you do the MN favourite thing of having it as a nn for a longer name that he can then use if he wants to such as Robert or Albert.

Congratulations, enjoy those newborn snuggly cuddles.

mumofone25 Sun 04-Aug-13 20:37:34

Congratulations! I really love Jesse and Flynn from your list.

DebK2012 Sun 04-Aug-13 23:12:10

FELIX

Amy106 Sun 04-Aug-13 23:42:01

Congratulations on the new arrival! smile
From your list, I like Jesse and Cooper best.

rootypig Sun 04-Aug-13 23:47:35

Congrats! my tuppence - I love Wyatt. Really like Jesse and Felix. Think Bertie is ok but will rapidly date - the nn as name trend. Cooper is a surname in my book - and he will get called Coops. Don't like Dexter at all, sorry - but then my DH obsessed with the dreadful serial killer programme...
