So baby boy is due in a couple of months and so far we have managed to shortlist 3 names, but we can't agree on one of the 3!

Hubby likes Sonny best, then Rex but I LOVE Barnaby!

Which do you like better/sounds better with our surname - Atkinson?

I think Rex goes lovely with your surname.

Rex, hands down

Sonny is a nickname.

Rex is a dinosaur ;-)

Strongly dislike Sonny.

Barnaby is the nicest, but I'm not keen on any... Sorry!

Not keen on any, but Rex if I had to pick.

Sonny is awful. May as well call him Youngfellermelad.

I would go for Barnaby Rex.

Barnaby or Rex.

Not Sonny, it's horrible.

Rex goes best with Atkinson, though I'm not a huge fan of any of these names.

Barnaby is gorgeous, lovely, gorgeous smile

They're all lovely and work well with the surname. Sonny is a bit more of a nn so I'd opt for one of the others.

LadyAntonella Tue 07-Jun-16 13:31:03

Barnaby by miles for me - it's really lovely, then Sonny, then Rex (which I really dislike - sorry).

Millyonthefloss Tue 07-Jun-16 13:38:56

Barnaby. It's great.

Rex is an irritating character on the Archers.

JanuaryJuniper Tue 07-Jun-16 13:46:50

Love love love Rex but it is one of those marmite names people either love it or loathe it!!

Gummibaers Tue 07-Jun-16 14:20:46

I like Barnaby! Not so keen on Sonny or Rex, they both sound a little comical and cutesy in comparison.

winkywinkola Tue 07-Jun-16 14:24:00

Ds2 is Barnaby Rex. Love those names.

minipie Tue 07-Jun-16 14:24:44

Barnaby and Rex are nice

Sonny is awful (sorry)

Loafingaround Tue 07-Jun-16 15:15:28

100% Rex!

If I ever have a DS we will use this name. Its fab- and goes superbly with Atkinson.

DramaAlpaca Tue 07-Jun-16 15:53:21


I don't like the others.

confusionoftheillusion Tue 07-Jun-16 16:23:19

Barny rubble
Tyrannosaurs Rex
Sonny and Cher

Sorry but I don't like any of them. The least awful is probably .... Pause.... Thinking.... No sorry I can't find anything good about any of them!

Barnaby -it's the best name ever (slightly biased here, I have one)
