And what age roughly are they?

Just thinking that possibly it might be quite good with DD (Honor) Two 'H' aside what do you think?

I live is SE London and I don't know any Henrys. Most of the boys have less traditional English names or else mid east european names as I live in a very diverse inner city area.

p.s. no Honors either smile

Only one of about 5 days old.

Home Counties here and I know 4 under five.
Also agree with Toby on the 'onor and 'enry thing; it's hard to wrap your tongue around that!

daughterofafarmer Sat 05-Oct-13 12:15:33

Only messing about toby I'm quite posh too grin how is your pregnancy going? Remember me from the Jan thread Farmer ?

It's a bit of a tongue twister I give you all that. Great name Henry, maybe need to try and find something less popular and 'H' base.

Lovely name (biased obviously) wink

Ooooh, yes! I remember. All good, thanks. How are you?

daughterofafarmer Sat 05-Oct-13 17:11:59

Good thanks toby hurrah for the final slog! Hope you're keeping well? Really should try and get back into the Jan thread but it just moves too fast for little old me blushgrin

What about Honor and Toby? wink

Its a nice name. Essex - i know about three under fives...


Thisisaeuphemism Sun 06-Oct-13 19:24:54

I only know adult Toby's .

Smugfearnleyshittingstool Sun 06-Oct-13 19:50:09

We are in sw, ( glos) and there is only one in my ds school, none in my dd private school. I love the name! Harry is very popular though so some of the harrys may be Henry on paper and pushing the stats up.

It's a great mans name I think, cure for a little one but a proper name for later on.

TheMumsRush Sun 06-Oct-13 19:54:42

One. My ds. 9 months smile

Department Sun 06-Oct-13 20:06:39

I'm in SE, I know few Henrys and I know a hand-full of little boys called Enree to their friends and sometimes teachers shock

Department Sun 06-Oct-13 20:08:05

Weird how as they get older they start to become "H" pronounced haitch.

People round 'ere can only say H when it's not supposed to be there!

Ihatepeas Sun 06-Oct-13 21:48:30

I know one.. he is 2 and mostly called Harry.

havatry Mon 07-Oct-13 19:05:08

I only know one and he's 38.

MyNameIsSuz Mon 07-Oct-13 19:13:07

I'm in Oxfordshire, so right in between SE and SW, and I know tons of Henrys about my age (so late 20s to early 30s) but no small Henrys. I have a 1 year old and know loads of babies, no Henrys. I disagree with the poster who said it would be tricky with Honor because you don't pronounce the H, I think that's why it would be ok - they don't sound as though they start with the same letter. I'm with your DH though, I love Hamish! And know no small Hamishes, one grown up one.

daughterofafarmer Tue 08-Oct-13 18:36:08

Thanks everyone.

Would be Henry not Harry. I've been saying I for a week now and haven't dropped the 'H' however he's not here yet to bit hard to tell.

Family member has just called new puppy...Hamish! Typical

CruCru Tue 08-Oct-13 18:38:54

I only know one - my DS (just turned 2).

FloraPost Tue 08-Oct-13 22:46:03

I know 4 Henrys born in the last year - very popular.

MummyPig24 Wed 09-Oct-13 12:28:56

I know 1. He is nearly 6.

Fenton Wed 09-Oct-13 12:32:01

South East Coast here, one Henry in DS2's Y2 class, - that's it.

I like Honour too, how lovely.

Clargo55 Sun 13-Oct-13 19:10:54

SW here. Know two Henry's 2 months and 6 months old.
