Little old man names?

(45 Posts)

I have one little girl with a not-too-popular-yet-not-too-crazy name, and we are expecting a baby boy in September. I haven't yet found a boys name that really "stands out" to me and although we have a while to decide yet, the control freak in me wants to at least have narrowed it down a bit! We like names that are old fashioned (think cute little old man), but not overly popular. Our surname is Cox, so please no Harry or Isaac or anything else that could be open to teasing. All other suggestions are welcome!

Thanks! X smile

Ernie, Wilbur, Barney, Cedric, Geoffrey.

Great names, not keen on Sid/Syd etc because all I can think of is the cot death connection (SIDS). And for some reason Cedric reminds me of a dragon...confused.
I adore Wilbur and Wilf! X

Ah, that never crossed my mind - I think of Syd Barrett! (Although I just found out his name was really Roger Keith shock )

Edwin
Cyril
(I don't actually like these btw)

Silas
Rufus
Jeremy
Timothy

Huckleberry (random!)

Ahhh Rufus! That's so cute. Not sure about Edwin or Cyril. There are some names that a baby should never be named, Roger, Keith, Kenneth, Clive, Barbara & Maud are just a few! (In my humble opinion...but who can imagine a bouncing baby Barbara?) grin
