Hiya, Charlie is our top choice if we have a boy...but struggling with middle names. Would like 2 as my ds has two. I love Peter and Gabriel but that's not happening for obvious reasons!! Lol. Any suggestions pls?

You could put Charles on his BC, and then you could use Gabriel or Peter as MN, but Charles Gabriel or Charles Peter is fine, but Charlie Peter, or Charlie Gabriel, doesn't work, IMO.
Other suggestions. Which go with Charlie rather than Charles
Charlie Alexander
Charlie Reuben
Charlie James
Charlie Francis
Charlie Victor
Charlie Cain

I'd go with Charles Gabriel Peter with Charlie for short

I was going to suggest exactly what Sophronia said - Charles Gabriel Peter, Charlie for short.

I really love Charlie but hate Charles! Adore Gabriel but dh not as keen. To be honest I'd also like a first name that wasn't 'top 20' but can't find anything I really love! I def like traditional names, I know that much. The 'cain' suggestion is cool ghost!

Charlie Zac Peter Surname.

I'd not put Charles on the bc if it isn't a name you like. Charlie is a perfectly acceptable name as it is. My little girl is Meg. Not Megan or Margaret. I like neither of those names but adore Meg so why bother with a different name on the bc.

If you hate Charles don't feel obliged to use it. It's nonsense that people suggest that.

If he decides to call himself Charles or Chuck or Chas or anything else as an adult he can, it doesn't matter what's on the bc.

It is a derivative grin

As is chic. Very common in the older generation of Charles' up here in Scotland!

Yes, of course if you don't like Charles then don't used it! My vote is still for Charlie Gabriel Peter smile

Forever - out of interest, how do you pronounce Chic? Like Sheek? Or Chick?

I have a Charlie, but he's Charles.

His middle name is Oliver, so I completely agree with PP grin
