Opinions? Will be A little brother for DS who has very traditional regal name: George/Edward/Henry/William etc.

Is that 'Seedric' or 'Sedd-ric'

Not keen on the first, quite like the second. But it's not up to me: it's your baby, after all!

StonedGalah Fri 24-Jul-15 15:31:05

Don't like it at all sorry.

mygreeneyedboy Fri 24-Jul-15 15:35:03

It's the second pronunciation - ced-dric smile

DP really likes it, it's got family history in my side as well which is partly why he likes it. I'm still undecided

I know a couple (non Brit) and I don't like it, sorry.

mygreeneyedboy Fri 24-Jul-15 15:36:25

Oops actually realised your second one is different to how I thought. That's odd - maybe I say it wrong? Maybe that's how my family say it? I have no idea!

FundamentalistQuaker Fri 24-Jul-15 15:39:31

I don't especially like it, I have to say.

Would you consider Cecil, or Edwin, Edmund, Edgar, Godwin, Harald, John, or Philip?

mrsdavidbowie Fri 24-Jul-15 15:39:57

Awful.
As is Cuthbert. I know a Cuthy.

SirChenjin Fri 24-Jul-15 15:41:46

Horrible.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 24-Jul-15 15:42:38

Please don't do it.

mygreeneyedboy Fri 24-Jul-15 15:45:17

I know a Cuthy/Cuthbert as actually.. But (and as well as the names Quaker mentioned) I've never seen Cedric belong to this group of names. Probably simply due to family links. If it's not Cedric will just pick another Regal name similar to DS1.
I think Cedric George sounds lovely, but still unsure by itself. Plus I prefer George. But it's so popular at the moment!

IsadoraQuagmire Fri 24-Jul-15 15:55:48

I like it, but then I have a friend named Cedric (he's French) Also love Cedric in Nancy Mitford's "Love In A Cold Climate"

sweetpeame Fri 24-Jul-15 16:18:36

Not crazy about it but it's better than a lot of the names suggested on here!!!

JakeyBurd Fri 24-Jul-15 17:40:13

I like it with the Welsh pronunciation ked-ric, but not keen at all on sed-ric. Seems a bit 'wet' to me.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 24-Jul-15 17:55:03

Terrible, like Wally or Cuthbert or Dennis.

Poor Cedric will be very envious of his brothers much nicer name, sorry op.

Sophronia Fri 24-Jul-15 18:10:54

I think it's not bad actually.

StaceyAndTracey Fri 24-Jul-15 18:13:05

Another please don't do it

Give hims one of the others from George Henry Willliam Edward stable

Mynd Fri 24-Jul-15 18:59:59

It's lovely! And I'm stealing it for my list smile. Honestly, if it's not Toby or Xanthe, no one on MN wants to know.

learntoloveagain Fri 24-Jul-15 19:03:10

Oh poor kid. When I saw the name in active I went shock. It's a joke older man's name, like a pp said, 'wet.'

PrimalLass Fri 24-Jul-15 19:05:28

Awful, sorry. Don't do it.

PrimalLass Fri 24-Jul-15 19:07:14

Also no to Cecil. Seriously, these were the names we took the puss out of when we were small. The wimps in the Beano etc.

PrimalLass Fri 24-Jul-15 19:08:02

*piss. Stupid prosecco typing.

luckiestgirlintheworld Fri 24-Jul-15 19:33:12

I like it. (Assuming it's pronounced Sed-ric)

BothEndsBurning Fri 24-Jul-15 19:43:44

I quite like it, but the Cedrics I have met or know of are French and of my own age, so it's not an "old man" name to me. Same goes for Cyril.

Honestly, if it's not Toby or Xanthe, no one on MN wants to know.

That's not true at all.
