Really struggling to choose a boy name...
contenders thus far are Patrick or Seth. I really like Patrick but worried about NN of Paddy, also if we went for Seth i'm stuck for a middle name (our surname starts with a W)

Any ideas / what do people think about the names? Big responsibility eh naming a child...

Patrick is a great name, strong and classic. Not keen on Seth at all.

ditto what flopsy said. Word for word!

They're both nice but I much prefer Seth.

Patrick by a mile. Don't like Seth at all.

Think Patrick is nicer than Seth, more sturdy for a lad/man but both nice.

I don't like Patrick but I do like Seth.

How about William for a middle name? SWW - can't do much with those initials.

Patrick great

thanks everyone, i'd never heard the nn Patch for Patrick but i quite like it

I suppose i could go for Patrick Seth and that would solve all problems smile

Both nice names, although I slightly prefer Seth - simple, masculine and won't be shortened.

Why not Seth Patrick W..?

I love Patrick, it is a classic, strong name.

Seth I think sounds a bit whimpy American teenage boy! grin

Patrick, with a NN - Pat. Not a fan of Paddy...

Seth makes me think of snakes hissing.

I love Patrick, and Patch is great (though I love Paddy too).
