I'm not even pregnant but can't help thinking of names for when we start trying.

I absolutely adore Henry at the minute but I don't know if it seems very old fashioned. I don't know any children called Henry.

What do you think?

Henry is a lovely name.

My friends boy is called Henry, and he's lovely too! smile

I think it's likely to get very popular- it's a classic, old-fashioned sounding name, which are very in vogue at the moment. I wanted Henry for my six-week old son (DP said no sad), and a colleague who is pregnant at the moment is also trying to convince her husband to use it for their son.

Love it! We already have a young Henry in the family so won't use it.

love it! but DH says it reminds him of Henry Hoover. which happens to be our hoover, and says he can't get this out of his head whenever he hears this name. thanks for ruining that one for me DH!

We have a Henry hoover too. I was watching Thomas the tank engine with DS2 and thought Henry was great. I love it.

My Henry actually has a Henry hoover hat, saves all that pesky labelling...

My Henry is in Year 1 and he has another in his class. I have 3 boys and LOVE the name Henry!!

PippiLongBottom Fri 01-Jul-11 19:20:24

Its lovely! I have three children of very different age groups and I don't know any Henry's.

BornToFolk Fri 01-Jul-11 19:23:40

I've got one! He's lovely! grin
There's another Henry at nursery but other than that, we haven't met another child called Henry.
Be warned though, loads of people call him Harry by mistake...

Love it. I know a few teenage Henrys, but no small ones.

lalabaloo Sat 02-Jul-11 21:19:54

I know a 3 year old Henry who is adorable!

MrsJohnDeere Sat 02-Jul-11 21:32:35

tryingtobemarypoppins2 Sat 02-Jul-11 21:49:11

My Henry is scrummy!

lazylula Sat 02-Jul-11 22:04:22

Lovely name, our friends have a 7 month old called Henry!

freyamalaya Sat 02-Jul-11 22:11:13

Henry was on the very shortlist for our ds - a great name but it has become so popular that it put us off, (I know 4 under 3 years old) wouldn't be surprised to see this in top 10 boys names soon!
