Do you like it?

I like Wilfred for a boy and I have no idea re girls names - everything I like has been stolen! used by someone else!

As it is, no, can personally hardly think of a name I'd like less. However, it has lots of shortening options.
Tell us a few girls' names you like that have been stolen used by others?

Willow
Anna
Flora
Imogen

I like the fact if he hated Wilfred he could go by will or Fred smile

I think Wilfred is a lovely name! I link it with Wilfred Owen, of whom I'm a fan. I also like its diminutives - wilf, will, Fred

I know a Wilfred and Amelie

I think it's lovely and, as you say, comes with lots of options.

I like Willow and Imogen off your girls' list.

Not keen on it I'm afraid. Where I come from, if you're a bit of a loser then you're described as being a Wilf.

I wouldn't be able to get around that I'm afraid.

Wilfred owen was amazing.

Amelie is pretty but I have a name myself that is always mixed up with another one. I wouldn't want a life of 'my name isn't Emily!' bestowed on the child!

Don't, they will get bullied to fuck with a name like that.

Imoleia Tue 07-Jul-15 20:54:31

They can shorten it or go with Fred if it's a problem, surely? smile

I like Sebastian but it's a bit overused here at the moment.

villainousbroodmare Tue 07-Jul-15 20:54:44

I like all your girls' names (are they REALLY totally stolen? unusuable?) and I like Bill and Will and Fred. And, incidentally, Eoin, Eoghan and Owen.

Imoleia Tue 07-Jul-15 20:57:08

Yes, they are all the names of close friends' daughters unfortunately!

I am tempted to go with Owen as a middle name but that may be overkill grin

Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove it!

Imoleia Tue 07-Jul-15 21:01:33

I like Regan for a girl and I don't think anyone's taken that.

Bellejournee Tue 07-Jul-15 21:16:52

I know a little Wilf, great name!

ImNotTheLadies Tue 07-Jul-15 21:21:25

love it! In high school my English teacher's wife had a baby boy and he chose Wilfred after Owen. It's been on my list ever since.

Getting quite trendy though... it was under 250 in popularity last time I checked.

my girls' list is; Estella, Rosemary, Annabel, Agnes (? questioning this one), Oona. For boys I like Rufus and George.

I know a toddler Wilfred, his siblings are monty and isla.

Sophronia Tue 07-Jul-15 22:54:22

I like Wilfred.

Ludways Tue 07-Jul-15 22:56:34

I know a toddler Wilf, hated it at first but it's grown on me.
