At 40 weeks (due date was yesterday!) so really need to get sorted! I think Harry is just a good solid name. DH doesn't like a) no long version/ no option to change/ adjust b) he read somewhere it was number 1 in UK last year and although I don't really mind this, I think he's let it colour his judgement.
If you have been lucky enough to avoid my other name posts, DS1 is Charlie (Charles) and his cousins are William, Oliver, Max, Sam and George x 2- all names we would have happily had but over a 3 year naming span it's a bit close!
confusedconfusedconfused To this naming malarkey. Feels so vital and life changing now and then once baby's out it seems pathetic to have worried! confusedconfusedconfused

It rhymes with Barry and Gary which are considered awful. Why does changing one letter make it the world's most popular name?! confused

I've got a Harry. Didn't realise there were so many about when we named him. He'll survive. He's got a more unusual middle name that he an use if he needs.

Our springer puppy is called Harry. He was named after the last surviving WW1 veteran Harry Patch by the breeder, which I thought was a lovely idea, he is also patchy too. Couldn't possibly re-name.

It's a lovely name, my kids have unusual names which are now unfortunately both popular!

Harry is a great name

My ds2 is Harrison (Harry) and is the only Harry at school.

I like Harry. I had a baby last year and as popular as it's supposed to be I havt met any at baby groups etc. You could always go for Harrison - Harry for short.
Hope your bubba arrives soon x
