I adore Errol!!

Austin, Sidney and Austin!

Rudi doesn't work in English imo - too 'rude'y!

Errol is my favourite. I prefer Rudy with a y

Not keen on the others

Arthur or Austin.

GooooRoooo - We haven't met another one either! Frankie is getting popular, which I quite like - he won't meet many other Franklins, but Frankie will be common enough it won't seem odd. We intended when we named him to call him Frankie, but most often call him Franks, Frankles or Frank.

MyNameIsSuz I've never come across another Franklin! How weird, and nice!

GoooRooo Mon 31-Mar-14 19:10:03

Franklin, Sidney and Stanley were our top three and we went with Franklin, which I sometimes shorten to Frankie.

I like Arthur too but am not keen on Austin, Rudi (rude Rudi etc) or Errol.

In order:


Would only consider the first two, though. Love Arthur, and Austin's nice in a 'cowboy' kind of way! Strongly dislike Errol, and Rudi for some reasons just brings to mind someone who is rude (a bit like calling someone Randy!)

MerryMarigold Mon 31-Mar-14 18:30:14

Rudi and Austin. I love Rudi, and my son's name is similar.

Kaekae Mon 31-Mar-14 18:29:11

Arthur for me.

Arthur or Rudi, great names!

MyNameIsSuz Sat 29-Mar-14 17:25:49

Yay, I'm loving all the love for Frank, I have a little Frank! Well, Franklin, but it gets shortened to all sorts.

I like Austin too, only one of your names I don't like is Rudi. Can I throw into the mix… Calvin? I think it's lovely, and shortened to Vinnie is cute too.

Austin or Arthur are nice, not keen on Errol Rudi (though I do like Rufus) or Frank.

Rexandralpf Sat 29-Mar-14 15:47:48

Sid and frank. Names I'm not allowed sadly.

JustDanni Sat 29-Mar-14 08:07:09

I love Rudi.. I would have it myself if it wasn't the name of a friends little brother.

RalphRecklessCardew Sat 29-Mar-14 04:26:39

Frank is great.

Sidney & Arthur also good.

HopelessDei Sat 29-Mar-14 04:04:54

I like Arthur - be ready for him to get Arfur for several years though. Children find "th" tricky.

The other names are not my taste.

Hooleywhipper Fri 28-Mar-14 19:24:02

Arthur for me

Arthur and Sidney are my favourites from your list.

hunreeeal Fri 28-Mar-14 19:22:12

I like Sidney and Austin.

sleepingbeautiful Fri 28-Mar-14 18:16:17

Really like Austin and Frank - I know a toddler Frank, and was a bit hmm when he was born, but now I think it's great on him.
Arthur is ok.
Sidney, Errol, Rudi = no

mrssmith79 Fri 28-Mar-14 16:05:45

Frank, Arthur, Sidney, in that order of preference. Not fussed on the others - especially Austin.

Emubaby Fri 28-Mar-14 16:01:19

Frank.. Ok
Rudi.. Awful
Sidney.. Like
Arthur.. Love
Austin.. Love
Errol.. Awful
