Love both Hamish and Hector and can't decide between them. Which do you prefer?

I dislike Hector. It sounds harsh, whereas Hamish is much softer & friendlier.

Hamish, on the basis that a 'Hector' is a term meaning a bully, after the Greek of that name. Or at least, person that features in Greek mythology. I think he was Greek but he might have been Trojan or something.

Hector, definitely.

ANYTHING is better than Hector. Seriously. Anything.

So Hamish it is.

And he wasn't a bully. He was a Trojan; and he was a lovely man. Courageous, compassionate, lovely to his wife...

JackA - yeah you're right he was Trojan. It still means bully though; second definition. They also added in 'braggart'.

Hector. I am related to one so can't use it but it is a brilliant name.

Hector; but I don't want it to become popular, so go with Hamish smile

How about Seamus, Gaelic for Hamish?

Oh dear, is Hamish trendy? I have a Hamish.

Hector is cute too, but as a previous poster said, Hamish is softer sounding.

Both are fabulous, I would struggle to pick between them too.

Hamish gets my vote.
