So, what do you think?

Older DS is Henry. We like pretty traditional names and I can't convince DH to go even remotely off piste.

If Charles/Charlie weren't so popular I think we wouldn't hestitate. But in real life I know very few Charlies and it seems to be discussed relatively rarely on here so I wonder if I'm worrying about nothing?

Charles nn Charlie is lovely, I only know of one Charles and he's 55!

Charles is a fabulous name.

I am thinking that too. It is a classic, no? Can't go out of fashion, and isn't dull (well I think not).

Just worried in case there are secretly lots about.

Currently also mulling Rufus and Logan but I can't see DH ever agreeing to them.

DS is Charles/Charlie and I think it is a wonderful name <biased emoticon>.

Rufus is gorgeous - try and persuade DH!

Charles with Charlie as nickname is great, a nice classic name smile

I like Rufus but not Logan (too fruity - similar to loganberries!)

I know a couple of Charlies (both boys and girls) but not many Charles. Had two in my class at school though so perhaps time for a revival?

Oh, my mythical DS would have been a Charles/Charlie. I ended up having 2 DD's but it was my boys name both times.
