Hector Ivo - what a great name. So long as your surname doesn't start with a V, of course.

Thanks everyone. I'm leaning towards Hector. Hector Ivo. Have to convince DP now!

I prefer Albert. Really don't like Hector, it immediately brings to mind 'to heckle' plus it's such a 'hard' sounding name iyswim. What about Victor?

neither. Don't 'go' with the brothers names, does that matter?

Well DS2 is Hector and I love it. But I like Albert too and it is one of his middle names....

Hector is brilliant, love it.

Hector, geeky in a wonderful way.

QuantitativePleasing Sun 21-Apr-13 22:15:46

Hector is lovely

Not Hector because of it's meaning as a word (verb - to bully or torment; noun - a blustering bully)

Albert by miles. Hector is just awful. Surely nobody would call their child that.

MrsHiddleston Sun 21-Apr-13 19:12:48

Isn't there a 'horrible hector'? Is it in Thomas the Tank Engine?

I'd go with Albert.

I think it would be very cruel to your child to give them either name when the others are called Louis and Finn. They are both very cool names but Hector and Albert are weird and old fashioned. I am amazed that you like both tbh.

What does Hector mean?

Kittykatmacbill Sun 21-Apr-13 17:15:16

Hector is great!

Albert, without a second thought. Hector, I'm sorry to say blush , makes me think of a cartoon dog.

pygmy Sun 21-Apr-13 15:29:18

I think Hector goes well with both Finn (Finlay) and Louis as it has both a Scottish and French feel to it. Trying to convince my partner; he is insisting on Edgar!

Ikeameatballs Sun 21-Apr-13 15:29:18

I prefer Albert but think that Hector sounds best with your other ds's names.

Bowlersarm Sun 21-Apr-13 15:24:52

Really like Finn and Louis, lovely names. I don't like Albert but I do like Hector, although lots of MNers will come on and tell you not to use it because of it's meaning smile.

Love Hector.

But tbh I don't think either of them go terribly well with the other two - they have a v different feel.

Struggling with boys' names! We have chosen Greta Mabel for a girl, which we both love. What do you think of Albert and Hector? My DSs are Finn and Louis.
