I think we're down to these four now, but any suggestions of fabulous names that are in similar vein?

Bertram (Bertie)

Rory, Arthur and Peter, I love but my DH is currently not having any of it

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 31-Aug-11 20:43:12

I like Bertram and Toby.

I like Jasper and Peter.

I have a Bertie (but Albert not Bertram) so I say that one! But jasper was v high on my list too, it's a lovely name smile

Similar names - Theo? Marcus?

Jasper, Toby & Bertram.

Really don't like Arthur & Peter.

Bertram or Peter.

Samuel Jasper would be my favourite of those smile

Jasper - like
Leo - like
Samuel - like
Bertram (Bertie) - Bertie is getting a bit faddy I think. Not keen on Bertram, prefer it as short for Albert or Robert
Toby - not keen

Love Leo

Jasper - ok
Leo - lovely
Samuel - will inevitably be Sam, which I quite like, but you mightn't.
Bertram (Bertie) - both variations sound scarily rah to me....sorry!
Toby - rah but less so.
Rory - like
Peter - like
Arthur - This one always makes me picture Arfur Daley, probably because I just don't know any real life Arthurs.

Four? grin


I like Jasper, Samuel and Toby (although I prefer Tobias).

I also have an anti-Rory DH, so I share your pain.

TeelaBrown Thu 01-Sep-11 15:11:41

Jasper, Leo - love

Samuel, Toby/Tobias - like but quite overused? not necessarily a bad thing... in fact, I may be wrong, I am thinking more amongst people my own age

Bertram - nope, sorry, not my cup of tea. One of these popular, 'Grandad' names.

i like samuel, toby and jasper. love arthur and rory is growing on me

Halestones Thu 01-Sep-11 15:49:06

I love Toby - but it got veto'd by DP who said it was a dogs name - Nonsense! I love Jasper, but unfortunately it was the name of DPs old cat.

I like Nathaniel, but not Nathan

Sorry, it was four and then i remembered another we were still considering!

We are now down to:


scarlettlips Fri 02-Sep-11 13:23:15

In order..

Bertram (Bertie)

Could you use Rory, Arthur and Peter as a nn?

Best of luck x

er... not that I am biased and will be having one of my own next month!

Though Toby is also lovely!

3isamagicnumber Fri 09-Sep-11 10:05:36

Samuel is the most common
Leo just makes me think of Tony Blair! (I love Leon though)
Bertie I dont like
Jasper was the name of my first budgie!!

I think if I had to pick out of these I'd go for Leo.

LilRedWG Fri 09-Sep-11 10:08:09

I have an Arthur so am biased towards that. smile

Love Jasper and Bertram (Bertie). Sam and Toby are quite widely used already. Leo is ok but a little dull imo.
