Hi, we absolutely love DS1 name, Frank. It suits him. It's cool. It's not common but not crazy either, plus there's some family history.

What on earth do we call baby 2 if he's a boy (not 20 weeks yet to find out). Any suggestions for our long list? Like Jamie (James?) and Patrick a lot. Suggestions welcome! Thank you.

Thank you, I like Albert but not sure it's sounds too matchy with Frank. Also love David and added to our list - DH less keen!

I don't think Albert is matchup. It's good to have a name from the same era.

He's just Frank - such a great name Bendy, we get comments all the time. I don't really like Francis, it's a totally different sound to Frank.

Grandfathers names are no good, great grandfathers are William (Bill) but that's Frank's middle name, Clifford, Eric and Kenneth! Not a fan of any of those tbh!

We've got Jamie, Samuel and Daniel on the list too. Added Albert as I think it's a grower.

Stanley/Stan is great

I know a Frank with a brother Arthur (Artie).

Also like Rafe with Frank

I know brothers called Sid and Vinnie!

Babytalkobsession Sat 23-Jan-16 09:29:53

Ooh like Sid! Just found out I had great grandfathers named Albert and David so liking either of those.

Love Stan but can't use and when I say 'Frank and Stan' I hear Franenstein grin...my issue but I can't unhear it!

dementedma Sat 23-Jan-16 09:34:57

Frank and Sid would be seriously cool!

BendydickCuminsnatch Sat 23-Jan-16 10:24:44

Baby I agree, Francis feels a bit wet to me! (Sorry to any Francises out there!)

BendydickCuminsnatch Sat 23-Jan-16 10:26:21

Art? I personally don't like Arthur but think Art feels similar to Frank and Albert, which you've said you like. Re Albert I know a baby Bertie, can't decide whether I prefer Albie or Bertie!

I LOVE Patrick!

I really like Daniel, Patrick and Samuel smile I do think Paul goes really well!

Malcolm?

Patrick nn Paddy. Paddy and Frank would be very cool.
