Milo is my favourite but DH not in agreement!!
If none of the above, any suggestions greatfully received.

Oscar.....but I am biased! grin

1. Oscar
2. Milo
3. Toby
(in that order)
Not so keen on Archie.

Oscar or Toby

Milo just makes me think Tweenies & want to heave -sorry

ragged Tue 21-Jun-11 13:58:51

Not keen on any of them, Archie if you must!
I take it you want names without nns, op?

Toby is lovely and under-used.

Toby but then I'm biased as I have a Toby! Haven't met many others either. The ones I have met are always little monkeys though, dunno if that puts you off! wink

I really don't like any - they are all very 'trendy' and will probaly date more than more classic, timeless names.

In addition, this is Milo

Milo makes me think of Tweenies, but that might not be so important not (are they still on TV)

Archie is meh

Toby is Scots for willy, but if you live in England that doesn't really matter. I cannot get passed it though.

Toby. I love Tobias but DP doesn't (don't know why) so I'm not allowed it on our shortlist.

I also like Oscar, but apparently it's getting quite common, which would put me off.

Toby or Oscar.

mopsyflopsy Tue 21-Jun-11 17:39:12

"Toby is Scots for willy" Really shock

1. Milo
2. Toby
3. Oscar
4. Archie

I do love Archie but it's extremely popular.

I know a very sweet Milo and I his name never makes me think of the tweenies.

PatriciaHolm Tue 21-Jun-11 17:47:37

Dh wouldn't let me have Milo because of the hot drink! He grew up in Hong Kong where it is very popular.

I like all the others, but they are quite popular at the moment - we have two of each in our reception year alone! (60 kids)

blossomtrees Tue 21-Jun-11 17:48:19

none of them

vintageteacups Tue 21-Jun-11 17:49:18

That's helpful blossom grin

yawningbear Tue 21-Jun-11 17:49:49

I have lived in scotland for years and did not know that confused. Tobias/Toby is lovely imo. Way too many Oscar's and Archie's, I do like Milo but as others have said there is the Tweenie connotation but shouldn't really matter. How about Felix? tho' there is the cat food link. Tobias has it I reckon.

vintageteacups Tue 21-Jun-11 18:03:32

We have a Barney and nobody has ever mentioned purple dinosaurs grin - except SIL when I was pregnant.

The name is the child and the child is the name; it's so easy to match loads of famous characters etc to lovely names but you'd end up never choosing any!

Yikes, back to the drawing board it is!!

MmeLindor. Tue 21-Jun-11 20:04:21

Perhaps it is a dundee expression then. We had a rhyme, "Eiech, miech, hen's keich, toby, bum, fart"

ColonelBrandonsBiggestGroupie Tue 21-Jun-11 22:04:36

Toby (but Tobias as full name) or Oscar. Don't like Archie at all and Milo is a Tweenie. Love Barnaby.

moondog Tue 21-Jun-11 22:06:39

They are hideous.
All names for silly teddy bears in smug tv programmes for MC kids.

takeonboard Tue 21-Jun-11 22:12:28

1. Milo
<< a huge gap >>
