I've always loved the name Harry (Partly because of Harry Potter - I'm such a geek!). Now pregnant with DC1, and it's my first choice for a boy (DH not quite so keen). I know it's really popular, but I'm trying not to let that affect my decision (It's MY baby, and I'll have to live with it's name forever!) My question is though: How many Harry's under 5 do you know?

Only one, and he's only just about to be 5. I like it too.

I know 4.

I do like Harry though. I went with Henry, and my other option was Harrison with Harry for short.

I like it a lot, and I only know one under 5.

There are 5 just in my daughters y1 class. I know about 4 more under the age of 5.

Only one, he's in DD's reception class. I know half a dozen up to teen age though.

I've got a six month old George - now there's a name that's overdone! I know six under 1yo. Bit of a shock to the system after DD, who is one of two with her name in the whole school...

2, both nearly 4 and born within a week of each other. One is Harrison with Harry as a nickname and the other is just Harry.

I've never understood why people get so worked up about whether a name is popular or not, if you love the name you should use it! Although if I were one of the many Sarahs or Claires of my generation I may feel differently.

I think Harry is a lovely name smile

Fantastic name.

I met a super cute one a few weeks ago (he was about 1yr i think) but I don't "know" any iyswim.

Its a name I'd love to use myself but dp has ruled it out because of the royal connection hmm
