DC2 is due at the beginning of December.

If it's a girl she will probably be Mary Harriet, if it's a boy we are currently stuck !

We already have a Poppy Arabella and absolutely love Arthur but it sounds stupid with our surname.

I am trying to persuade DH on Walter but he is wavering to and from it.

I like Ted as a nn but Edward is just okay.

Ruled off so far because we either know one or one of us doesn't like the name:-
George - was on the list last time but too popular now I think
Albert
Percy
Lawrence
Henry/Harry
Edwin
Edgar
Frank
Fred
Sid

Others:
Hector
Freddie (from Frederick or Wilfred)
Henry
Sidney

Frank and Peter and Noel are mine and DHs grandads. I'm suddenly really liking Frank as a name, pity is DS is almost 4 now!
