Yay, Yay and Yay again.

Classic name.

Nice, but dull.

(Except as a sibling for a Henry).

It's lovely, and would have been one of the possibilities for ds, except for there having been a bit of a "black sheep" in the family with that name. But without any personal connections it's a great name. Classic, but not too common these days. You wouldn't get loads of others in their class with the same name.

Very cute.

(Haha, not with Henry though).

Love it.

Yay. Lovely classic name.
Can't believe it hasn't had a revival yet. So nice that it's not common among young uns at the moment.

Too plain/common/old-fashioned for me.

Sweet - and I've liked all the Peters (and Petes) I've known. If a name can be gentle, I think Peter is one of them.

I like it.

OH doesn't.

Shame as we cannot decide on a name for this baby!

MummysLittleSunbeams Sun 18-Sep-11 13:51:50

Extremely boring, unimaginative & definitely not due for a revival just yet!

Ihavewelliesbutitssunny Sun 18-Sep-11 13:57:01

Its a great name, classic but not boring and yes definately something gentle and gentlemanly about it smile

PGTip Sun 18-Sep-11 13:58:39

Yay, but I'm biased my ds is Peter grin as was my late dad sad

Rhubarbgarden Sun 18-Sep-11 14:00:44

Lovely. Classy.

Big Yay!

Totally underused right now. I wanted it after High King Peter from the Narnia books, but wasnt allowed, boo!
