DH refuses to consider George because it's "posh"

We already have Henry & James, to put this in context.

Is George posh (or posher than H&J?) NOW!

(thank you)

No posher than Henry or James! They're all the same level of poshness IMO smile. All lovely names.

Magicalmrmistofeles Sat 13-Jun-15 21:05:15

Nope,very not posh.

I think Henry is quite posh but all 3 names definitely work together.

tryingtocatchthewind Sat 13-Jun-15 21:08:02

Looking at the recent Georges I would have said quite the opposite

I see Henry as posh but James and George as transcending class barriers!

It's blmmin' royal. How posh were you hoping to go?

tsonlyme well I like traditional names, but DH wants a traditional name that isn't 'posh' and he feels that george is posh...

mrschatty Sat 13-Jun-15 21:22:45

Traditional and 3 lovely boys names. I have a nephew who is George my sil is definitely not posh! Just 'normal modern'

crapfatbanana Sat 13-Jun-15 21:24:59

Henry, James and George are all Royal names.

What about Darren? grin

No, it's one of those names that gives nothing away about the person. George could be anything from a pot washer to a High Court judge.

Not posh.

I'd say it's traditional and classless. A George would be a normal and unremarkable name for a baby from any and all levels of society. It fits very well with Henry and James.

I see Henry as much "posher" than George or James.

To put into context we wouldn't have chosen Henry or james as too posh for us or so we thought.
However we did consider George but in the end opted for another name as georgie Porgie rhyme was not what we wanted to hear coming from th playground.
I think it's a lovely name but we weren't brave enough sad

PenguinsandtheTantrumofDoom Sat 13-Jun-15 21:42:39

George is way less posh than Henry!!

morethanpotatoprints Sat 13-Jun-15 21:43:22

harry, Thomas william Edward Theodore are all traditional names.

Henry is a posh name IMO. All nice names, George is fab.

Cloggal Sat 13-Jun-15 21:46:10

Henry is posh. George and James are classless.

DampAndRotten Sat 13-Jun-15 21:48:14

In order of poshness I'd say


VivaLeBeaver Sat 13-Jun-15 21:49:08

i think its a normal name. My builder is called George and I never thought ooh, he has a posh name. Not that builders can't be posh, I'm sure they can, mine isn't!

It's not like Tarquin or Montgommery.....Id say they're posher than George.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 13-Jun-15 21:50:56

The three together are a bit Thomas the tank engine.

TravellingToad Sat 13-Jun-15 22:22:07

Noarmani is George in Thomas the tank engine?? Never seen it or read the books.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 13-Jun-15 22:28:03

Yeah he's the steamroller

cece Sat 13-Jun-15 22:28:56

Yes all 3 are Thomas the Tank Engine names but they do go very well together. I agree Henry is posh. George and James both classless.
