Does this make you think Peter Rabbit?! Or am I being paranoid??

Peter Rabbit didnt cross my mind. The first thing i thought was Ive just had a flash back to 1970s primary school - quite dull names imo. Arthur and Edward much nicer but also quite 2012/13 so suppose it depends what youre after.

i like both names but i'm afraid i did think that before I clicked on your OP.
Peter Edward Robert or Peter something Robert a good suggestion

The first thing that came to my mind was Peter rabbit, I opened the thread to tell you.

I like the names though.

Rob and Bob

Fine, no I like Peter and my two partners in crime at uni were Rib and Bob, so no it just brings back happy memories.

How about Robin instead of Robert? Peter Robin sounds great and Robin has the same meaning as Robert.

Yes, I read it as Peter rabbit at first.

Agree that you could have 2 middle names. Peter Edward Robert then you are separating the names but still able to use them.

Love Peter - classic and underused. I think you can get away with Peter Robert surname.

The first thing that came into my head when I rad the title was "Peter Rabbit's go a fly upon his nose", probably only because we sang it at baby group this morning!

I think Arthur Robert Peter flows really well, and don't see any problem with ARP.

Sorry, I read Peter Rabbit at first. But then you wouldn't often see the two names together, and in context it would probably be fine. smile

PunkyPod Wed 13-Feb-13 23:22:35

I actually read it as Peter Rabbit sad
Probably because its DD's current favourite book though...

MoelFammau Wed 13-Feb-13 23:21:13

No no, I meant Peter Richard - the 'Dick' thing.

Peter Robert I actually like. It's not as if you live in the Deep South and will be screaming 'Peter Robert, you git yersel' back in here!' from the verandah. I have to remind myself what DD's middle name is, and God I OBSESSED over it at the time.

Why not have two middle names and a new first name. Firstname Robert Peter Surname

farmersdaugther Wed 13-Feb-13 18:35:22

Hahaha this is my brother middle name and I've never ever thought of that before....


CruCru Wed 13-Feb-13 18:27:20

It's my Dads name so sounds totally normal to me.

LadyD84 Wed 13-Feb-13 15:55:46

Lol. Thanks for being honest, i thought it probably wasnt just me! Both names are my two grandfathers so would like to use them, but Robert also FILs name so DH won't allow as a first name (even though it is my favourite name of all time!). Also like Arthur and Edward, so could do either with Robert and Peter as middle names, though that gives ARP or ERP which looks ugly to me!

GirlOutNumbered Wed 13-Feb-13 15:54:27

I didn't when I first looked but when I said it, it came into my mind immediately.

MimsyBorogroves Wed 13-Feb-13 15:53:06

Sorry, first thing I thought without even opening the thread was "Peter Rabbit?!"

ProPerformer Wed 13-Feb-13 15:49:57

Yeah a bit 'Peter Rabbit' - have you thought of swapping them "Robert Peter" sounds good.
ATEOTD thought DH says that middle names are there to embarrass kids so..... Still I wouldn't let him give our son Albert as a middle name! (Nothing against the name, it just sounds hilarious with our last name!)

Didn't think Robert was a name for a willy as I have a Robert and LOVE the name - especially as it has a few 'nicknames' should he ever wish to use them.

SciFiFan Wed 13-Feb-13 15:43:08

Sorry I too thought Peter Rabbit.

MonsterBookOfTysons Wed 13-Feb-13 15:41:06

I snorted with laughter. Sorry but yes, defiantly Peter Rabbit

BabyRoger Wed 13-Feb-13 15:37:19

You don't think that having 2 names that both mean willy is a bit much, Northern?

Do love Peter though.

NorthernLurker Wed 13-Feb-13 15:01:16

I read it as Peter Rabbit! grin

That's sweet but not when he's 35. Peter Richard was my choice for dd2 because Richard was my uncle who was killed before I was born. I think it's nice actually and Richard really isn't much used now.
