Sidney and Austin are lovely!

Rudi is too rude wink.

notadoctor Fri 28-Mar-14 09:44:40

I really like your list - especially Sidney and Frank.

CheesyBadger Fri 28-Mar-14 09:46:01

Frank I love!
Austin second

Sidney gets my vote from your list

UriGeller Fri 28-Mar-14 09:49:46

Rufus with nickname Rudi. Otherwise it'll just be assumed he's a Rudolph.
Then I like Arthur.

None of the others though.

AddUpToNothing Fri 28-Mar-14 10:01:20

I like Sidney and Austin. Frank, I just think Frank Butcher!

Though I do like Rudi. But he'd always be nudey Rudi to me grin

monim1 Fri 28-Mar-14 10:17:47

I think you should go with Frank.

RabbitPies Fri 28-Mar-14 10:32:45

Frank is hideous. I can't imagine calling a lovely newborn 'Frank'.

Rudi is very nice

Sidney is awful.

Arthur is better than Frank and Sidney.

Austin is ok.

Errol's is really bad.

Austin or Arthur

HectorVector Fri 28-Mar-14 12:57:55

Arthur or Austin.

Definitely not Frank or Errol.

elmwoo Fri 28-Mar-14 12:59:19

I love Frank !

fideline Fri 28-Mar-14 13:05:05

Errol!! Great swashbuckling name.

Emubaby Fri 28-Mar-14 16:01:19

Frank.. Ok
Rudi.. Awful
Sidney.. Like
Arthur.. Love
Austin.. Love
Errol.. Awful

mrssmith79 Fri 28-Mar-14 16:05:45

Frank, Arthur, Sidney, in that order of preference. Not fussed on the others - especially Austin.

sleepingbeautiful Fri 28-Mar-14 18:16:17

Really like Austin and Frank - I know a toddler Frank, and was a bit hmm when he was born, but now I think it's great on him.
Arthur is ok.
Sidney, Errol, Rudi = no

hunreeeal Fri 28-Mar-14 19:22:12

I like Sidney and Austin.

picnicbasketcase Fri 28-Mar-14 19:22:49

Arthur and Sidney are my favourites from your list.

Arthur for me

HopelessDei Sat 29-Mar-14 04:04:54

I like Arthur - be ready for him to get Arfur for several years though. Children find "th" tricky.

The other names are not my taste.

RalphRecklessCardew Sat 29-Mar-14 04:26:39

Frank is great.

Sidney & Arthur also good.

JustDanni Sat 29-Mar-14 08:07:09

I love Rudi.. I would have it myself if it wasn't the name of a friends little brother.

Rexandralpf Sat 29-Mar-14 15:47:48

Sid and frank. Names I'm not allowed sadly.

Allalonenow Sat 29-Mar-14 15:55:23

Austin or Arthur are nice, not keen on Errol Rudi (though I do like Rufus) or Frank.

MyNameIsSuz Sat 29-Mar-14 17:25:49

Yay, I'm loving all the love for Frank, I have a little Frank! Well, Franklin, but it gets shortened to all sorts.

I like Austin too, only one of your names I don't like is Rudi. Can I throw into the mix… Calvin? I think it's lovely, and shortened to Vinnie is cute too.

PreciousPeach Sat 29-Mar-14 20:38:59

Arthur or Rudi, great names!

Kaekae Mon 31-Mar-14 18:29:11

Arthur for me.

MerryMarigold Mon 31-Mar-14 18:30:14

Rudi and Austin. I love Rudi, and my son's name is similar.

DiamondsAndRust Mon 31-Mar-14 18:53:25

In order:


Would only consider the first two, though. Love Arthur, and Austin's nice in a 'cowboy' kind of way! Strongly dislike Errol, and Rudi for some reasons just brings to mind someone who is rude (a bit like calling someone Randy!)

GoooRooo Mon 31-Mar-14 19:10:03

Franklin, Sidney and Stanley were our top three and we went with Franklin, which I sometimes shorten to Frankie.

I like Arthur too but am not keen on Austin, Rudi (rude Rudi etc) or Errol.

GoooRooo Mon 31-Mar-14 19:10:46

MyNameIsSuz I've never come across another Franklin! How weird, and nice!

MyNameIsSuz Mon 31-Mar-14 19:22:13

GooooRoooo - We haven't met another one either! Frankie is getting popular, which I quite like - he won't meet many other Franklins, but Frankie will be common enough it won't seem odd. We intended when we named him to call him Frankie, but most often call him Franks, Frankles or Frank.

ShoeWhore Mon 31-Mar-14 19:23:53

Arthur or Austin.

MrsJohnDeere Mon 31-Mar-14 21:51:57


Not keen on the others

Errol is my favourite. I prefer Rudy with a y

rachel234 Tue 01-Apr-14 09:13:43

Austin, Sidney and Austin!

Rudi doesn't work in English imo - too 'rude'y!

CarryOnDancing Fri 04-Apr-14 08:21:26

I adore Errol!!
