We like all these names, but I worry Henry is too popular? What do you think?

I LOVE Bruce!

Let me congratulate you on your excellent taste in names!!! smile

I love all of them....(DH doesn't)

I only know of one little Henry, and one teenager Henry (who doen't live in the UK).

Bruce is such a brilliant, under used name.

Henry is popular, but I think it's the nicest of the three. Although I do quite like Angus, it's one of those 'so awful it's actually lovely' names! Bruce is terrible.

Henry is definitely the most popular of the three you've chosen, but I wouldn't say it's hugely popular - nowhere near as popular as Harry. We know 2 Henrys (one of whom is known as Harry) and approx 100 Harrys (OK, I might be exaggerating a little there.)

Personally, my favourite is Angus - love the nn Gus.

Haven't heard Bruce as a name for a child before and it's a good, solid name so I don't know why it's not used these days.

Henry or Angus. Not Bruce

What about Bruno? It's Bruce with sex appeal.

I know three baby Henry's born this year. How about Harold?

I can't even begin to imagine a baby called Harold!

It does go with the golf club chic vibe that the OP is going for though............

I love Henry. Don't know any!

Like Angus but not the nn Gus

Angus is a great name, my son's name. His father is Scottish but Scottish connection not obligatory, obv. Love it1

Anything but Bruce!!

Bruce is a red-faced middle-aged sheep-shearer who drinks too much rum at the weekends and drives a car with no muffler.
