I'm leaning towards Huxley but then I heard the pig song. Do you think anyone still gets that reference or just old people?

The other option - probably saved as a middle name is Atticus

I like Cedar. I haven't heard it as a name before but it would be a really nice and unusual choice.

I think Alduous, don't know a song and over 40.

Like Huxley and Calvin, not keen on the other two, especially Tate. Lots of people don't pronounce Ts, so 'Tay', makes me think of 'taters and ate.

I prefer Atticus out of them all

Calvin (Cal), Huxley (Hux) fab

Quite like Tate as well, lots of girls called it as well round here so you will need to like unisex names

Cedar is a bit too River Phoenix for me.

I'd keep Atticus as a middle name if you're using it. That name is kind of tainted now, thanks to Go Set A Watchman.

I quite like Cedar actually. I haven't heard it used as a name before.

I really like Calvin and Cedar.

Do you think Huxley goes in the same American naff camp as names like Oakley and Bentley? I know the ending is the same but I'm hoping it feels a bit different from them

I like Calvin and Atticus best!

WinterBabyHMW Tue 26-Jan-16 13:32:32

Calvin is nice smile Huxley is okay

Sophronia Tue 26-Jan-16 13:38:33

Calvin, maybe with nn Cal

Focusfocus Tue 26-Jan-16 13:55:20

I know of three organisations called cedar.... So not a persons name for me

Jesabel Tue 26-Jan-16 13:57:41

Calvin's the only one that really looks like a name to me. Atticus is a bit try hard hipster.

Herrerarerra Tue 26-Jan-16 13:59:53

Atticus is my favourite and Calvin's the only one I like from the choice of four, but I'd need to shorten it to Cal.

Really don't like any of them, except Huxley. Love Huxley.

pilates Tue 26-Jan-16 17:20:04

Sorry not keen on any of them.

Hate Huxley. It reminds me of a retching sound, and Dudley Dursley.

Calvin is nice.
Tate, meh.
Cedar, alright but not great.
Atticus, my least favourite of them after Huxley.

shock I'm not old and I frequently sing the theme tune to Huxley Pig! <misses point>

Calvin and Hobbes great!
Cedar, Huxley ok.
Tate not warming to.

BettyBi0 Tue 26-Jan-16 19:53:33

I don't understand the Dudley Dursley connection. Just googled and it's Harry Potter but I've managed to never read any HP so far. Is it the "ley"s sound or does he do something that sounds like Huxley?

Kittykatmacbill Tue 26-Jan-16 21:41:23

Cedar is lovely, I was at school with an oak and I always thought that was fab.
Calvin is also good.

VocationalGoat Tue 26-Jan-16 21:44:42

Calvin is wonderful. I really love this name.
Atticus was done for me years ago... Great character in To Kill a Mockingbird but it's just a bit OTT. It's just way too "Oh yes, Atticus Finch. You named your son after that guy."
How about Otis?

Calvin is by far my favorite from your list. I also like Atticus.

Definitely not a fan of Tate - far too surnamey in my opinion.

BettyBi0 Fri 29-Jan-16 13:19:17

Do people who like Calvin automatically think "and Hobbes?"

I like it but I'm wondering what kind of camp it falls into in the US as we may end up there one day

DontKillMyVibe Fri 29-Jan-16 13:24:09

Klein or Harris is my first thought when I hear Calvin rather than & Hobbes
