Henry or Gabriel?

(15 Posts)

To go with older DC Charles. Had been set on Henry, but keep thinking about Gabriel now. I do worry about being teased for it in school though. What do you think of them?

Both lovely names and both go well with Charles IMO. I think I prefer Henry but its close. I also like Rafe which has a similar feel to Gabe.

I much prefer Gabriel to Henry.

Henry and Charles together is a bit too 'obvious' to me if that makes any sense.

Like both, but Henry just has the edge for me.

Gabriel is absolutely lovely. I would go with that.

Henry.

Charles and Henry = Chuck and Hank. In my world anyway grin .

Gabriel is a tad wet.

Henry seems such a popular name just now, but I prefer Gabriel with Gabe as nn. Either work as middle names so you could use both smile

Oh gosh the two names we liked most, would have chosen one if DD had been a DS2!

I love both, sorry not much help!
