Thoughts please! Really torn between the 2 for our boys name!

Wilfred after the poet! Yes. Felix (the cat)! No.

Ooo @makereloffact I love Wilbur too. Gorgeous. Now even more confused! wink

I like both.

Felix is lovely but Wilfred is probably a bit more adventurous and therefore less popular (if you are bothered about that) and it does have cool nn's.

Wilfred is a truly excellent name - is in our top 3! Less prevalent too, at least round our way. I do like Felix as well though. Good choices smile

Yes, I suppose you shouldn't criticise others' name choices - but why Felix or Wilfred when there are so many nice names out there??

Nadia you beat me to it - was going to say exactly the same!

Felix is far more popular than Wilfred. I love Wilf, though I am slightly biased, ours is adorable and we have yet to meet another in RL.

Felix is very popular where we are. It would put me off.

I like Felix, but I LOVE Wilfred. You could consider spelling Wilfrid too, just to throw it out there!

Also, have you considered Wilbur? I love this too.

MackerelOfFact Wed 27-Mar-13 20:15:19

Wilfred here. I think Wilf is an amazing nickname.

Love them both. Is there one that goes better with your surname and/or preferred middle name? Or makes better initials? Wilfred might be hard to say if little one turns out to be someone who has trouble pronouncing "r". I know unlikely but it happens, and put me off Rory for mine!

Sorry do not like any of them.

Clca Wed 27-Mar-13 19:32:56

Thank you all. Am still massively confused and change between the 2 on a daily basis!

Felix!! I have one of those <3

Wilf/Wilfred is too fashionable at the mo and reminds me of a wartime baby in a knitted bonnet straight out of Call The Midwife.

Felix however is dynamic and fascinating and strong.

Choose your baby!

Team Wilfred!

Prefer Wilfred, Felix to me is a cat.

wedontplaywithelectrics Sat 23-Mar-13 00:11:02

Prefer Wilfred x

I have a Wilf. He's a dude and we get loads of compliments about his name.

Wilfred with Fred as nn.
I don't like Felix at all, sorry.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Fri 22-Mar-13 19:29:28

Wilfred because I love the nn Wilf. I also really like Felix though.

Cordial Fri 22-Mar-13 19:23:28

Wilfred for me, no good reason just a personal preference! Plus I think Wilf is a most excellent nickname!

One is a cat, the other an old man.
