Expecting DC 2 in a few weeks, we already have an Edward Thomas nn Ted and don't know what we are having next, girl or boy!

Have decided on May Matilda if it's a girl but can't seem to agree on a boys name. Here are our current top contenders. Which do you prefer? (Using two middle names for both our granddads)

Albert Antony Hugh
GeorgeAntony Hugh
Ronnie Hugh Antony
Rupert Antony Hugh
Arthur Antony Hugh
Eric Antony Hugh

Rupert and then Arthur.

Dislike Eric and Ronnie.

I like George best, then Albert.

JasperDamerel Sun 31-May-15 20:21:59

Rupert first.

Albert and Arthur joint second.

Rupert Antony Hugh is my favourite.

Ronnie is my least favourite.

I also really like Hugh, would you consider that as a first name?

Arthur or Rupert for first names. Good list though!

Hoodedmoron Sun 31-May-15 20:31:30

Thanks everyone. Allalonenow we might think about Hugh as a first name, maybe should add it to the list for deliberation!

Ronnie is DH's addition to the list but with our surname not being dissimilar to Cray (as in Ronnie and Reggie) I think it should go!

I like Hugh Anthony as the middle names - has more of a run to it

Allthatnonsense Sun 31-May-15 20:37:00

Eric or Arthur

Wishful80smontage Sun 31-May-15 20:49:10

Albert or Arthur best
Do not like Ronnie - I know a baby Reggie don't like that either

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 31-May-15 21:07:40

Eric

George & Arthur. Hate Eric!

DampAndRotten Sun 31-May-15 22:01:09

Arthur first then Albert.

IanHislopsLawyer Sun 31-May-15 22:03:27

Albert Anthony Hugh. I like it a lot.

Rupert is a bear, Eric is (to me) a Greyhound and Ronnie is a gangster (or a blonde ice maiden in Eastenders!). So definitely Albert.

George first and then Albert.

Sophronia Sun 31-May-15 22:55:11

Albert Antony Hugh. Would you use a shortened form of Albert? I like both Albie and Bertie.

Hoodedmoron Sun 31-May-15 23:00:44

We really like Bert/Bertie as a nn for Albert.

Thanks for all the replies everyone, it's good to get a quick response from everyone's initial thoughts to the names just to shorten the list a bit more. Sometimes I guess you have to be brutal! Final three for boys I think will be Albert, Arthur and George.

I think you've picked the best ones for your final 3. My favourite is George.

CordeliaFrost Mon 01-Jun-15 10:57:11

From your final three, I'd say Albert or Arthur.

I have never been keen on George.

Marisola Mon 01-Jun-15 13:04:37

Ronnie is not really a name - it's short for Ronald, but you could have Ronan or even Roland which would take it further away from the Kray link.

I prefer Antony and Hugh to all the first names on your list, so no much help, sorry!

FatSwan Mon 01-Jun-15 13:19:15

George, Albert, and Arthur are my favourites.

go for albert george or arthur

I know a Ted with a brother Rupert - all anyone thinks when introduced to them is: oh. Two bears!

akorda Tue 02-Jun-15 14:40:41

George, Eric and Albert (nn Bertie. Such a cute nickname! Not Albie. Seem to be loads around at the moment)

Oh Rupert, you don't see that often, I love it.
