....names such as Len & Frederick (nn Freddie) then what other names would I like?

I love very traditional names such as Oliver, George, James etc but we have a very common surname so the traditionals end up sounding a bit boring.

please help with some suggestions.. also please let me know your preference on Len or Freddie??

I love Len, as a nn for Leonard. Not wild about Frederick/Freddie.
How about
Gregory
Albert
Wilfred
Dominic
Francis (Frank)
Peter
Victor
Quentin?

I've got a Frederick, nn Freddie, so that is my favourite! His middle name is Joseph.

I also like Alfred and Wilfred, which could still be nn Freddie.

We are really struggling with a boy's name for #2, but have considered:
Arthur
James
Marcus
Lawrence
Archie (but not keen on Archibald)

Sidney (Sid for short)
Alfred could also be Freddie
Timothy (Tim)
Harold
Carl

Vincent, or
Philip?

Lennon nn Len
Alfred nn Freddie

NadiaWadia Mon 17-Feb-14 09:05:36

Freddie is great!

But Len, as in Fairclough?? hmm

baskingseals Mon 17-Feb-14 21:30:49

Really like Ernest, nn Ernie and also Jem, but don't know what it could be short for.

soontobeslendergirl Mon 17-Feb-14 21:35:30

Jem is usually short for Jeremy but could also be Jeremiah I think.

You don't meet many Jeremys any more but it actually has a nice ring to it. In Scotland traditionally it would be shortened to Jeemie.

thank you for the suggestions but none feel like 'the one'....

couple of names that have come off the reserves bench though..... what are your thoughts on Elijah or Arthur?

Misfitless Wed 19-Feb-14 07:58:01

I love the following old fashioned boys names:

Sidney
Edward
Fred
Arthur
Charlie
Peter
MIchael

Not keen on Len or Leonard, though

as it turns out I didn't need to contemplate the boys names..... our little girl Poppy arrived in the early hours of Friday morning smile
