Help! I had a hard enough time choosing a name for DS3, now I need another!
He's officially a Robert but we always call him Bob or Bobby.

I like Albert (I love Bob and Bert!), but OH is having none of it hmm

Thank you for the suggestions. Read these out to OH last night. He's vetoed Herbert, sad something to do with Family Guy? (No idea why, I never watch it)

He quite likes Edward/Ted and William was on our list last time so may well be used this time.
One of the problems is lots of close relatives all with quite traditional names. There are several I would use (including some mentioned above) but can't because they belong to brothers, nephews etc.

Ignatius - Iggy?

I like Bob and Iggy. I currently have a Robert/Robbie too but DH won't let me use Iggy if we have DS2...

Bobby and teddy (Edward) go well as do Bobby and Albie (Albert, if you can persuade him on the nn ? )
