I'm expecting my first in a few weeks time and we're going round and round in circles on names. We probably won't decide until he's actually sat in front of us, but can i ask for your thoughts on these names? (And suggestions of any similar ones?) Thank you!

I like Dylan the best.

Ethan and Freddie ok, bland imo.

Not very keen on Albert.

Albert is my favourite. Lots of variations - Albie, Bertie, Al, Bert....

But please use full name as well as nicknames.

I love Albert and Ethan. We're expecting a boy in October and have really struggled for names! Think we're going to go for Niall though smile

Ethan, Dylan or Freddie. I don't like Albert

PrincessJenga Tue 21-Jun-11 18:33:16

See! This is my problem. How on earth do people find names that other people don't hate? Do I just need to grow a thicker skin and go for whichever I like? Or does the perfect name exist somewhere?

(thank you all for your feedback by the way, genuinely appreciated despite my hormonal confusion! smile)

If you like the names, ignore us lot grin

Don't worry usual, I am pretty thick skinned so I'm not sobbing into my birthing ball. I just wish we could decide! I'm really hoping that when baby is here we'll just think "oh, of course, he's a [insert PERFECT name]"

Freddie is great as nickname for Frederick. Also like Dylan. Albert is OK. Ethan is too similar to ethanol.

I'd go for Freddie, but I have a Frederick, known as Freddie, so I'm biased smile

We were the same, didn't pick his name for definite until he was in front of us. Frederick was going to be his middle name, as my DP didn't like Freddie, but when he was born, we decided that Freddie was, indeed, the PERFECT name for him!

Another Frederick, Freddy for short here. Great name really suits cheeky & v. handsome little dudes wink

Freddie and Albert are my favourites, Dylan is awful.

I like Freddie (Frederick) and Albert best.

Dylan is very popular round here.

Ethan is a bit meh.
