Hi, we're looking for a boys name to go with sister Margot. Which do you like best in order of preference?
Ralph
Jack
Hamish
Lawrence
or
Rufus?

Thanks!

I like Lawrence best

Hamish. Lovely name.

Ralph or Jack.

I am so jealous! Margot is my top girls name but DH has vetoed. Actually feel sad about it as it's the only name I really love !

Hamish or Rufus

I sympathise Booey. Angus is actually my favourite boys name and I think it goes perfectly with Margot, but it's not on this list because DH vetoed. So sad! I hope you find a name you like as much as Margot!

Hamish is my favourite, I also like Rufus.

Jack is fine but it is a bit naff to me.

Lawrence is ok, I'm not wild about it.

I strongly dislike Ralph though and that was the name of my beloved childhood dog.

Rufus

All your boys names except Jack are in the trying-too-hard category.

How on earth can a name "try too hard", trying to hard at what exactly?

Hamish

Rufus

1. Jack - Love this name.

2. Lawrence - I like this in its full form, but the Lawrences I know have all had their names shortened to Larry, which is not so nice.

3. Ralph - Only if pronounced like Ralf. Still reminds me of Ralph Wiggum from The Simpsons.

4. Hamish - I don't mind this, but the Hamish I know gets "ham" for short (even though it's not pronounced ham-ish).

5. Rufus - Straight up nope.

Not so fond of Jack

Rufus would get my vote

LestatVonGaribaldi Sat 26-Nov-16 09:22:12

Hamish

Hamish.

Or James, Angus or Alistair, none of which are on your list.

Rufus!

Hamish is awesome! I love it.

Hamish or Lawrence. I think Jack is a bit plain and too popular for Margot.

Jaynebxl Sat 26-Nov-16 10:13:06

Can't believe nobody has suggested Jerry!

Sophronia Sat 26-Nov-16 10:28:48

Lawrence, Hamish or Ralph

LadyMonicaBaddingham Sat 26-Nov-16 10:31:55

My immediate thought was Robbie.

I love Hamish, and Rufus is cool, too.

Agree with PP about James or Alistair

Hamish, then Jack, then Lawrence, nn Laurie.
I'm afraid Ralph is forever tainted for me by Judy Bloom.

"All your boys names except Jack are in the trying-too-hard category."

Is this serious shockhmm?! I wonder if we have different tastes grin, because I find Jack quite dull.

From your suggestions I particularly like Lawrence, Hamish and Ralph. Great solid names that aren't overused.

Hamish then Rufus.
