So, after lengthy discussion in the car last night we have finally narrowed it down to two boys names, but can't decide which. Please help!
Robert Henry Lee (or maybe Robert Henry George Lee - does the addition of George spoil the flow?) nn Robbie or Nathaniel George Lee nn Natty as a baby, Nate as an adult
Lee is our surname btw.
My reservations are these: Is Robert a tiny bit/off-puttingly boring? Is Natty Lee too similar to Natalie and therefore too feminine? Does Nate Lee work as a name and does it matter if only a nn, albeit one he is known by 99% of the time?
Other names my hubby has surprisingly endorsed are Otto and Cassius. We're not quite brave enough, but if anyone has any similar suggestions I'd be agog to hear them.
Cassius is good, but looked it up on MN and apparently means vain and hollow ! We'd already ruled out Otto due to the Ottalie association (lovely girls name though!). It is proving a very tricky surname to work with. We love Hugh but Hugh Lee is another that's not great.
I just cannot imagine looking at a cute little bundle of joy and calling him Robert/Rob. Otto is ok. Quite cute. Cassius is a fabulous name. If I was having a boy I would have added that to my list. I love it! Cassius Lee sounds great. I like Nate too (def not Natty!) but don't think it works with Lee as well as Cassius does.
