What do you think? We like old fashioned but not common names. Any suggestions welcome, 4 weeks to go! smile

Sorry these are really not my taste so totally understand if you don't like my list, but all other old fashioned names I can think of seem to also be popular!!!

Errol was an old owl belonging to the Weasley family in the Harry Potter books grin I think only HP geeks would make that connection though.

It's not a name I'd use myself but I do quite like it.

Errol is a great name! Cool, classic and underused. I wouldn't have though HP and doubt many would, especially in years to come. Anyway, nothing wrong with an owl association.

It's pretty cool actually! Wasn't sure when I first read it but it grew on me after about 5 seconds lol. My only concern is I like names that can have nn's or affectionate versions and there isn't much you can do with Errol. That's a very personal preference though.

Well for me it will always be the actor Errol Flynn or the guy in Hot Chocolate. Not bad but not a name I would have used.

A definite no from me. It's horrid.

TeaAndALemonTart Thu 27-Mar-14 17:46:59

I like it.

Heathcliff27 Thu 27-Mar-14 17:48:29

Nooo, maybe totally outing myself here but theres a pizza/kebab place in our town called Errols

MarieJeanne Thu 27-Mar-14 17:51:05

I like it. Unusual but not weird.

Errol Flynn was cool and suave despite being called Errol.

No.

Ron Weasley's owl. That's not a bad thing. Cute name.
