Thoughts on Albert?

Just wondering what people think of Albert. I love it, but am wondering if it sounds a bit pretentious - if you heard it would you think the baby had been named after Einstein?

My OH is really pushing for this name and I hate it, well not actually the name tbh, just with OH's accent he doesn't say the T sound, and in Bertie (his preferred nn) it sounds terribly hillbilly.

Yep it makes me think of Prince Albert. I like it and was considering it but DH doesn't love it.

Albie is another nn

I like it. In fact it is the only 'old man' name I like. Getting quite popular though.

Love it- think it suits a certain person - my best friend is calling her boy Bertie and i think its perfect for her and her kid.
