My baby boy is being delivered by c section next Monday and I'm struggling to choose his name. Me and my husband have got it down to these three but I've over-thought it all and think they might be too weird.
Help! Any thoughts?

I'd go for Thomas - lovely classic biblical name.

Augustus by a very long way! Thomas doesn't rate for me. Is Monty short for something?

Mama1980 Mon 24-Sep-12 15:19:02

I like Augustus and Thomas by would choose Augustus myself.

Monty is short for Montague...

Monty!

I can't get past Augustus Gloop on Augustus.

I like Thomas best. Good classic name.

I don't like Gus or Gussie, so that rules out Augustus for me. And Monty just makes me think of Uncle Monty in Withnail & I.

Thomas!

Monty or Gus (Augustus). Not Thomas - dull dull dull

Thomas all the way! Would have used it for ds2 if my best friend hadn't used it already.

Thomas is nice enough but too many of them! I love Monty (possibly short for Montgomery?) and Augustus. Be brave, don't go for 'safe'!

Oooh definitely Monty it's gorgeous.....Thomas is boring and Augustus would not be my cup of tea but it's better than Thomas!

Augustus is lovely, as is Monty! Both lovely, classic underused names that will stick in people's minds easily.

Thomas/Tom, on the other hand, is rather dull and overused imo. There are lots of them around already.

I have to agree that Montague/Monty and Augustus are cool names that aren't as overused as Thomas. I partidularly like Montague/Monty!

Monty or Thomas

Augustus reminds me of Charlie & the chocolate factory

Monty smile

Thomas is nice but is fairly straightforward compared to your other two. Monty is okay as a nn but prefer Montgomery but that's a big name for a little person....as is Augustus too - What about Austin which a version of Augustus but a bit easier to carry off.

Augustus or Monty.

Thomas is ubiquitous, he will be known as Thomas Yoursurname throughout his entire school career.

I like a boy's name to have a bit of swag. Monty is a particularly fine choice, IMO wink

A vote for Monty! I like Thomas too though. If you went for Thomas you could have a Thomas Monty (but maybe not a Monty Thomas too tongue-twistery?)!

Augustus! Gus is a great nickname.

Thomas is dull.

Monty wears tweed trousers, smells of wet labrador and take every opportunity to try and rub his aged todger up against each fine filly he sees.
