DC3 due in 9 weeks, have chosen girls name that we both LOVE but can't seem to fall in love with any boys names. Freddie has been a contender for a while but we refer to it as our 'back-up emergency name'! Now liking Riley (i think!), but is it a bit chavtastic??....

Fred is quite cool, I think. Good teen name. Freddy cute on a baby. Can't see that is ridiculous at all.
Riley has grown on me after a friend called her son this.

I like them both, but both are really popular I know loads! 4 Riley's and 3 Freddie's

But obviously if it being popular doesnt bother you?

I like Fred. Friends have a daughter called Reilly so its always seemed like a girls name to me. (Absolutely not chavs though.)

I only know girl Riley's. I didn't even know it was a boys name!

I have a 9 year old Reilly. Way before the Riley invasion of the past few years! Absolutely love the name as much as I did then!
Freddie is ok. I know a couple of newborns along with Teddy & Frank which are both having a surge in popularity.

Freddie is best of those and I only know one - a gorgeous 3 yr old.

Freddie is a brilliant name.

I think Freddie is cool. What about frank or Francis? Then he can be Frankie?
