So after much obsessing and lying awake at 3am with names circulating in a cloud above my head, we're down to the final two options. If we have a 2nd son we may well go with the 2nd option, but right now I want to pick just the one. Which do you think sounds better and what overall impression do you have of each?

Otis Fox Davey


Archer Grey Davey (nn. Archie)


Archer Grey Davey.

Archer grey davey (that's awesome by the way)

Otis (but personally prefer Grey as middle name with it. I really like Fox but think Otis Grey Davey rolls better)

Archer is very cool but, I guess from your preferences that you would like something a little different from the norm and I think that the prevalence of Archie will annoy you.

Archer. Otis is an aardvark.

I'm not overly keen on either but he's your baby so call him whichever name you love! I think you should just wait till he comes out and see if he looks like an Otis or N Archer.. Not very helpful I know!

N = an

Otis, definitely. Archer reminds me of the alcoholic drink!

Otis Fox. We are thinking of Fox as a middle name too. (Hope that doesn't put you off!)

Archer is lovely.

VainVulva Sun 28-Dec-14 19:50:11

Oh wow they are both pretty darn brilliant. I'm not much help really as I can't decide.

The only change I would make would be Fox as a middle name for both

Archer Fox or Otis Fox.......I think maybe Otis, as Archer may be misheard as Arthur plus the nn Archie ruins it a bit!

VainVulva Sun 28-Dec-14 19:51:04

Can I be really nosey and ask what your girl choices are?

HoHonutty Sun 28-Dec-14 19:51:20

Otis Fox.

Too many Archies.

As said upthread, Otis is an aardvark.

itssangriaoclock Sun 28-Dec-14 22:01:10

Otis fox or Otis grey

Or Grayson fox davey. That would be my choice x

itssangriaoclock Sun 28-Dec-14 22:01:51

Too many Archie's even if he was an archer

burgatroyd Sun 28-Dec-14 22:34:17


Have you considered Orson? Sounds like awesome!

TheWildRumpyPumpus Sun 28-Dec-14 22:38:58

There really are a lot of Archie's out there at the nursery's, toddler groups and soft play areas I have the misfortune to frequent regularly!

So on that basis I'd go for Otis personally, maybe with Gray as a middle name.

Archer is quite cool, but Archie is waaaaay over

MuttonCadet Sun 28-Dec-14 22:47:19

Archie Grey is lovely

CountingThePennies Sun 28-Dec-14 22:52:16

Neither sorry. There are hundreds of great names to choose from which are 100% nicer than those two names

Grey Davey is too mistakable for gravey

Archer Fox Davey
