Penelope and Rupert have the best flow in full names not sure about Bear though

I like Penny and Albie best, but none are bad.

I think all of them sound fine together, so which boy's name do you like best on its own? I think I'd go for Theodore or Felix. Theodore is the most similar to Penelope in that it has a few different shortenings (Theo, Ted, like Penny, Nell) so they would both have similar potential for choosing how they want to shorten their name. But I don't know how much that matters really. The only one I'm really not keen on is Monty (sorry).

You can't call a boy Theodore. Poor thing.

Penelope and James.
I like Theodore and Edward but personally I don't like your shortenings.
I like albie though

thank you all for your comments and thoughts. I am not so keen on Sebastian, thank you for the suggestion though.

BendydickCuminsnatch Wed 23-Dec-15 11:02:11

I'd choose Rupert or Felix out of those.

lugo40 Wed 23-Dec-15 11:35:11

Rupert, Monty and Otto are the only ones not in the top 100 so they are my preferences as i don't want anything too popular.

I think Rupert might be my favourite but maybe shortend to Roo instead of Bear.

I do really like Monty still too.

i also like Ralph - Penelope and Ralph?

I think the more i think about it the more i like Rupert smile

Penny & James.
Agree that Penny & Rupert will be shortened to Penny & Roo.

Pinklily1 Wed 23-Dec-15 16:25:16

You could shorten Rupert to 'Rup' or 'Rups' as well.

Belazu84 Wed 23-Dec-15 16:37:07

I think Penny and Albie

Jesabel Wed 23-Dec-15 16:39:19

Monty, Rupert and Otto are awful, Rupert is painfully posh and Otto and Monty sound like labradors.

Lucymatilde Wed 23-Dec-15 16:56:02

They are Labradors.

Bear and Teddy - not keen, too cutesy as associated with toys
Monty - rather wet
Theodore - yes but with Theo as nickname
James - yes
Albert - yes although I prefer Bertie to Albie
Felix - yes
Otto - no, too faddy

I think we're agreed on Penelope and james. James is very popular which bothers me but it's the only Boys name we agree on and it goes nicely with penny

Lizziedripping1 Sun 27-Dec-15 21:02:13

Penelope and James I think

James was popular but isn't so much now just a few around at the moment amongst babies.

I knew someone who called their child Rupert but the baby developed a lisp and Woopert made everyone fall about laughing all the time...poor child was bullied terribly so I don't have many good associations with the name

Penelope and James sound like a good combination. We have a Theodore and a Rupert in our family, and no Edwards, but a Ned, an Edmund and an Edwin. None of them have ever been called either Teddy or Bear!
