mummummummummm Fri 28-Oct-16 22:21:14

Um, no. To all sorry!

MotherDuckSaid Fri 28-Oct-16 22:21:39

Frederick and Angelica (not a fan of Lettice)!
But loooooove Horatio !

What are you thinking, are you writing a book about talking mice? Because no one should lumber a child with any of them

garlicandsapphire Fri 28-Oct-16 22:23:14

Oh dear really? Fred is salvageable but other than that...

FlappyRose Fri 28-Oct-16 22:23:38

I like Angelica, Thalia, Frederick and William. Lettice is awful though, sorry.

MrsDallowaySaid Fri 28-Oct-16 22:24:44

Love Angelica but not brave enough here!

wobblywonderwoman Fri 28-Oct-16 22:25:33

Lettuce was fan on Britain's got talent a few years back but I wouldn't go for that name

Others all fine Will, Fred perfectly handsome names

Quirky middle named but nothing wrong with that

allthatnonsense Fri 28-Oct-16 22:26:45

Thalia Jane

William James

IMO the rest are a little try hard.

MotherDuckSaid Fri 28-Oct-16 22:27:33

sonlypuppyfat- ohh ur post tickled me !

PotteringAlong Fri 28-Oct-16 22:27:52

Definitely neither of the girls names. I quite like the boys ones.

MiniAlphaBravo Fri 28-Oct-16 22:28:24

I like both the boys and Angelica. Not too sure about lettice although I know it's a real name, but not very good for a first name.

chowchowchow Fri 28-Oct-16 22:29:21

Honest opinion? Lettice is not my taste AT ALL. Even auto correct wants to change it to Lettuce.

SpunkyMummy Fri 28-Oct-16 22:34:59

These reactions are honestly very interesting. smile

Lettice was DH's favourite great aunt...

ballsdeep Fri 28-Oct-16 22:35:53

I thought it was a salad

thatsn0tmyname Fri 28-Oct-16 22:37:11

I like William. The others are too heavy/ weird, sorry.

CoffeeCoffeeAndLotsOfIt Fri 28-Oct-16 22:42:16

No, no, no, no, no. Except William - that's a nice name.

everdene Fri 28-Oct-16 22:43:47

Balls Lettice is a variation of Leticia.

OP I love William Horatio, I'm not a fan of Angelica in all honesty although I do know a sweet six year old one. She, too, has awesome middle names! For me it's a bit too cutesy to pass the 'judge test'. (One thing about Lettice too is to be aware that there's a series of popular picture books with a rabbit called Lettice.)

I like Frederik but Bertram isn't a name to which I warm.

Loyly Fri 28-Oct-16 22:45:37

I only like Frederik from your list.

ineedamoreadultieradult Fri 28-Oct-16 22:47:29

Angelica is nice Lettice is awful
William Horatio is fabulous!

albertcampionscat Fri 28-Oct-16 22:47:39

I don't get the responses. Perfectly fine first names, quirky middle names but so what. It's not like you'd introduce yourself as Frederick-Bertram. You'd be Fred, or Freddie, or Frederick.

FWIW I slightly prefer your DH's choices. Lettice (nn Letty?) is lovely.

calzone Fri 28-Oct-16 22:48:40

Just no.

ExitPursuedBySpartacus Fri 28-Oct-16 22:48:54

Love love love Lettice.

SpunkyMummy Fri 28-Oct-16 22:50:15

Bertram was the name of my something something uncle.

And our dog's name was Bertram (Bram-Bram).

However: Lettice really isn't a salad smile

Chinlo Fri 28-Oct-16 22:50:15

The only really bad one is Lettice. That honestly sounds like a joke! Like calling a child Cabbige or Tomarto.

The rest are okay. Nothing that unusual about William or Frederick as first names, and okay the boy's middle names are a little unusual, but that's fine for middle names! That's what they're for in a way, right? I don't see a problem with Angelica or Thalia either.
