Please help!

C-Section booked for Friday time running out...

Still haven't found baby boy names we like... But quite like old fashioned names... Albert or Angus?

Already have an Archie (Birth certificate Archibald!)

What do you think?

Many thanks in advance for any replies smile

Angus, no question.

(but I'm a diehard ac/dc fan)

Angus for sure

Angus - I love it!

MehsMum Tue 16-Dec-14 21:58:07

Albert. Goes much better with Archibald (well done for going the whole hog - I would have done).

cloggal Tue 16-Dec-14 21:59:19

Angus, without doubt

I've got an Angus

It rocks, and so does he

Bit of a dodgy patch in nursery when he was learning to write his name but couldn't yet do a "g"

nn Angy, or Gus, or sometimes SpiderMangus grin

Angus, totally. Great name!

SanityClause Tue 16-Dec-14 22:18:23

If you like Bertie, what about Herbert, rather than Albert?

As they get older, there'll be letters for A. Hannahsson, and they won't know who it's for. I s'pose you'll save on Cash's name tapes, though.

I prefer Angus - but dont panic you have 6 weeks to register the name so no rush really!
Incidentally, my neighbour is called Alistair, and for some weird reason my dh calls him Angus even though he knows he isnt really!! Another name to add to the indecision perhaps?!

Mouldypineapple Tue 16-Dec-14 22:19:47

Although Albert goes quite well with Archie!

squoosh Tue 16-Dec-14 22:43:02

Neither. How about Magnus instead?

Good luck for Friday OP!

cloggal Tue 16-Dec-14 22:45:12

I like Magnus too squoosh (was on my list for ds). That's definitely more an Angus vote than an Albert vote though smile

Good luck op, let us know what you choose in the end!

Ds1 is Archie
Ds2 is Angus

They go very well together imo!

Hedgehogsbuzz1 Tue 16-Dec-14 22:48:50

Gus is such a cool nickname and less common then Bertie or albie

Hedgehogsbuzz1 Tue 16-Dec-14 22:51:28

Bertie and albie are too similar to Archie. Gus sits nicely with Archie

Okay yes, Angus is superior to Albert. Gus is super cool.

elmwoo Tue 16-Dec-14 23:04:21

Well I love Albert , literally as I have one of my very own, and he is gorgeous !!!

BlueStarsAtNight Wed 17-Dec-14 08:02:43

I like both but think Angus is more distinctive against Archie.

Sophronia Wed 17-Dec-14 11:26:00

Both are good but I prefer Albert and I think it goes better with Archibald.

Guin1 Wed 17-Dec-14 12:51:02

Another vote for Angus.

DramaAlpaca Wed 17-Dec-14 21:32:57

Yet another vote for Angus.
