Which would you choose and why:
Henry Long
George Long

I won't mention my pros and cons for each yet as would love your opinions!

Thank you.

Henry. I like multi-syllable 1st name then single syllable surname. To me George Long is too plonky sounding.

George Long sounds best I think. I like both names equally, but with your surname I think George sounds best.

Henry Long. I think the 2 syllables go better with a 1 syllable surname.

Henry is the best boys name EVER <might be biased>

Henry. Partly because I've taught loads of Georges and I'm bored rigid of it.

Use one and keep the other for the next baby, add a Hetty or Charles and you have a family of vacuum cleaners!

There's not much to choose between them is there? Probably the two most common boys names going. confused

I like both. Neither sounds wrong, or has dodgy initials!!

I normally prefer George but think Henry goes better.

You can't go wrong with either.

I've no preference! Both equally great names.

Henry = best boy's name ever. DC3 (DS2) is due in 6 weeks and we are struggling to think of another as nice (George is a possibility).
