I know most of you will hate these names but after a long process, DH and I have finally come up with a top 2. I love both and DH is leaning towards Wulfric.

DD is called Persephone, which everyone also hated a few years back grin but it suits her and we've never regretted her name.

So which do you like more? I know some of you will be tempted to say neither wink but that's not very helpful.

Wulfric all the way!

barnet Fri 12-Feb-16 18:00:11

Wulfric (also like Ulric)

barnet Fri 12-Feb-16 18:00:59

I wouldn't be sure how to pronounce Cato

confusedandemployed Fri 12-Feb-16 18:01:02

Wulfric. He'll be Wolf for short. Cool!

scribblegirl Fri 12-Feb-16 18:02:47

I actually knew a young Wolfric a few years back - he was Wolfie for short (he was about 7 at the time) and it was adorable!

So long as you don't live in the sort of place where he'll get the shit kicked out of him, I'd go for Wolfric OP smile

Sorry - just noticed Wulfric rather than Wolfric but points still stand!

Oh Wulfric. Cato will always be a Hunger Name. Get it? Huh? Huh?!

Okay. I'll get my coat.

Probably don't do Cato. I say this because my dog is called Cato and lots of people pronounce it cat-o. You don't sound like the kind of parents who would be bothered about this sort of thing (good) but your DS may not like it. (Although he might not care either, of course).

I have 2 (!) norwegian uncles called cato, so that would be my favourite!

JoMackl Fri 12-Feb-16 18:10:16

Wulfric is an excellent name! Not keen of Cato.

(I love the name Persephone too btw.)

MargoH123 Fri 12-Feb-16 18:10:59

@barnet it's pronounced Cay-To but that's a good point, I didn't think people would struggle with the pronunciation.

@confusedandemployed Wolf/Wolfie are great nick names imo grin

@scribblegirl we live in London and everyone seems to have given their children eccentric names, met a Fox and a Loki at the park the other day, along with 3 Archie's so I think Wulfric will fit in nicely.

I thought this would be a close contest by Wulfric seems to be everyone's choice.

MargoH123 Fri 12-Feb-16 18:12:58

@JoMackl the reactions when we first announced her name were quite funny, but we loved it too much to budge and she adores it as well

Sophronia Fri 12-Feb-16 18:13:15

Wulfric, if I had to pick.

Doublebubblebubble Fri 12-Feb-16 18:14:23

Cato. because it reminds me of the green hornet. I'm not keen on wulfric, sorry

thebiscuitindustry Fri 12-Feb-16 19:01:18

Wulfric, of the two.

Cato sounds like a nickname for Cate.

willowsummers Fri 12-Feb-16 19:02:18

The real Cato was crazy.

Who is Wulfric?

DramaAlpaca Fri 12-Feb-16 20:40:56

Of the two, Wulfric.

YakTriangle Fri 12-Feb-16 20:49:09

If I'm perfectly honest, neither. But Cato is better if I had to pick one of them.

PurpleDaisies Fri 12-Feb-16 20:51:04

Definitely Wulfric. That's my dh's Starbucks fake name.

Sofiria Fri 12-Feb-16 22:00:41

Cato would be my choice. But I like Wulfric, too! (And Persephone, so I guess I like your naming style in general smile )

smartyclogs Fri 12-Feb-16 22:14:18

I'm sorry but i really don't like either name. Just a bit too out there for my taste.

Can't imagine meeting a Wulfric without thinking, ' poor lad, what a name!'

Woodhill Fri 12-Feb-16 22:19:46

I thought it was a wind up.
Please don't inflict these names on your child.

Cato - moggy

stillnotjustamummy Fri 12-Feb-16 23:48:07

I used Cato as a middle name on my DD. Because it was such an awesome name I couldn't not use it, despite her not being a boy!

How about Wolfram instead of Wulfric?
