Due in 4 weeks, can't decide which name..... also which goes best with Jacob (our other son).

Spencer. Archie isn't a proper name (sniffy hoiky judgy pants).

And Spencer Tracey was way cool.

Not Spencer, reminds me of Frank Spencer (Ooh, Betty). Like Archie.

My godson is Spencer (12). It's grown on me.
Dislike Archie almost as much as all the other incomplete ie ending names such as Alfie, Charlie, Freddie. Jacob is lovely.

Spencer, no contest.

My worry with archie is that whenhe gets to school, there may be 4 other archie in his class. Although I do love it, spencer is more unique. Marks and spencer yes we've had that one, it did put me of the name. Spencer is quite geeky vintage, Archie is more cute baby name...... Completely stumped. Both names don't really go together either so couldn't have Archie Spencer, or Spencer Archie.... Hhmmm may just have to wait and see what he looks like. smile

Spencer, but PC Plum is my favorite.

You've been watching too much Balamory.

idiot55 Wed 24-Apr-13 20:34:59

spencer, absolutly love it

shelli135 Wed 24-Apr-13 20:43:50

We don't watch balamory.... Are they both characters?blush

Shiraztastic Wed 24-Apr-13 20:47:08

Archie. Spencer reminds me of that 'my own spencer bear' book, or the character from eastern doers. Mind you I'm not a big fan of Archie either, that has lots of associations, inc Balamory.

I don't think either goes with Jacob, sorry.

wizzler Wed 24-Apr-13 20:48:03

Archie. Definitely Archie. I don't think it is as popular as it was 2or 3 years ago

CharlieBoo Wed 24-Apr-13 21:37:56

Archie... Spencer is erm... Dare I say it???

TolliverGroat Wed 24-Apr-13 21:46:48

Thank goodness; I thought this was a "which Balamory character would you shag if you absolutely had to?" thread.

notso Wed 24-Apr-13 21:48:54

Archie in answer to both OP and Tolliver grin

kneedeepindaisies Wed 24-Apr-13 21:49:12

Is there any Balamory characters you would shag? confused

If I had to choose a name I would say Archie because I think Spencer sounds a bit wet.

greenteawithlemon Wed 24-Apr-13 21:50:51

Neither. Sorry.
