I went to university with a Thadeus ( don't know if that's how it's spelt)

He was called Thad and I always thought it was rather a nice name.

Old-fashioned boys' names are in fashion so you might have trouble finding a nice but rare one.

You should definitely avoid Albert, there are loads!

I know a Stanley as well.

I do like Raymond, Ray for short, and I don't think that's too popular (yet!)

Ooooh! St John!

How did I forget that one - Really REALLY like it . . . . (<dreams of miracle bonus baby to call Francis St John . . . . )
