Not Alfred as he will become alfie which is everywhere plus Darcy and Penelope are becoming very fashionable. I really like Arthur and Dorothy smile

Sorry this isn't helpful but I don't like any of them.

Cinnamon2013 Mon 11-Jan-16 19:09:00

I like Penelope... Less keen on the rest I'm afraid.

Alfred. No too harsh. Alfie's okay but very overused.
Arthur. Don't see the appeal with this name at all. It's not even old mannish but cutesy like Alfie for example
Jonathan. No. Like Jon though. Good strong name which suits you through every stage of your life.
Dorothy Yes. I quite like it. It's certainly different now and Dotty is an adorable nn.
Penelope. No but I do like Nell.
Darcy Is gorgeous.

Love Dorothy - it is the only girls name on your list that isn't trendy.

Darcy and Jonathan are my favourites

Arthur - cute but equally good for a grown up, Jonathan - okay, Alfred - not a fan

Penelope - lovely, Darcy - too trendy and I don't think it will date well, Dorothy - okay, but totally not my cup of tea.

Like them all except Penelope, it reminds me of envelope for some reason!

Darcy is my favourite.

From your boys names I like Arthur. Artie for a little boy and Art for an edgier nn when he's older smile
Alfred doesn't do anything for me. I quite like Jonathan but I know loads in their 30s/40s and struggle to see it on a boy really.
I really really dislike Darcy.
Penelope and Dorothy are both fine, they're not really my cup of tea. I prefer the nicknames Penny and Dorie to the full names!

Love Jonathan

Darcie is the "Sharon and Tracey" name of the moment.

I love Penelope and Dorothy but I prefer Dorothea.

Arthur is great, classic but classless.

Not so keen on Alfie. I can't decide what I think of Jonathan.

ClemFandagoDoesTheTango Mon 11-Jan-16 22:17:34

I like Arthur and Dorothy.

Darcy is lovely but very popular at the moment.

Not keen on the rest.

cecilelliott Mon 11-Jan-16 22:20:18

Jonathan for boys- John/Johnnie are great shortenings, and there are very few around at the moment.

Penelope and Dorothy are both lovely but you would have to make your peace with their being shortened. Do you like Penny/Pen and Dot?

Good luck!

HainaultViaNewburyPark Mon 11-Jan-16 22:23:18

I like them all with the exception of Darcy.

My favourites are Jonathan and Penelope.

fitzbilly Mon 11-Jan-16 22:26:04

Jonathan is awful, I can't believe people like it! Jon is even worse, like John! Awful.

Sophronia Mon 11-Jan-16 23:19:05

Love Jonathan! So handsome and underused. Alfred and Arthur are nice too but a bit more popular. Dorothy is nice from your girls list - I'd love to meet a little Dorothy.

LOVE Dorothy!
