One week to go and can't decide! What do people think?

Tricky, prefer Albert as a name but Robert makes me think Bob which is fab!

mo3d Tue 12-Jul-11 09:24:37

I prefer Albert smile

Robert. Lots more versions, shortenings, and Albert is more a name of the moment I think.

I like both, think I prefer Robert though.

Well I think DH prefers Robert, I just think a little Albert would be cute...

Albert although i agree that Robert is more timeless

I love Robert, but then that is what DS is called. I like the way it can vary according to age - Robbie, Rob, Bob, etc. At the moment he has decided he is Robert (aged 9), but he's still Robbie to me smile

Albert. My DH is Robert and has never really used his full name, always Rob... althou I sometimes call him Bert in an attempt to use the second half of his name.

Albert. Unless you're going for Bobby as a nickname.

Albert - Bertie, Albie
Robert - Bertie, Rob, Robbie, Bob, Bobby

Robert - smile, Albert is the new Alfie whereas Robert if more unusal!

NormanTheForeman Wed 13-Jul-11 23:17:45

Robert = Rob, Robbie, Bob, Bobbie, Bert, Bertie

Albert = Al, Aly, Albie, Bert, Bertie

You decide.........

We are currently on Albert. I think I prefer this but not in love with it. Ds1 is Harry, which I love, and just can't think of something which I am so happy with for DS2! what do you think of Harry and Albert together?

I think maybe the main thing which is worrying me with Albert is that I know some people (mainly my mum) will HATE it! I suppose I need to get over this!

badkitty Mon 18-Jul-11 16:21:47
