Damian is my favourite boy's name ever.

I also love Gabriel, Oliver and Henry.

Never met a Sam I didn't like.

I like Nathaniel Rupert Samuel and Oliver.

Henry is fine.

I don't like the others.

I like Dennis. I haven't heard of a Dennis in ages. Also, like another poster said - every time I meet a Sam, he's a great kid.

The only one I like is Samuel

Really wanted it for the baby I'm currently growing but I have an ex called Sam so DP wouldn't allow it! Spoil sport!

Interesting list - a real mix! I love Gabriel (favourite boy's name) and really like Arthur, Henry and Nathaniel/Nate. Samuel and Oliver are OK - nice enough but perhaps a trifle dull.

Don't like any of the others - can't get beyond The Omen with Damian, don't like the sound of Gregory (too many Gs!), Rupert is too foppish and wet-sounding and Dennis and Roland are still firmly in middle-aged territory for me (especially Dennis - just makes me think of Dennis the Menace and Dennis Pennis, which aren't great associations!). All very subjective though! smile

I like Damian, Damon, Samuel, Gabriel, Nathaniel and Oliver. I really dislike the others.

Damian, Damon, Gregory, Roland and Dennis are tantamount to abuse, IMO.
