Either combination sounds ok but I much prefer Ralph to Hamish.

Hamish is quite Scottish.
Ralph is quite upper class English.
Which do you want to convey?
Ralph 'goes' better with the other two names imo but he wont always be named in a list of 3, so which ever you prefer?

Ralph makes me think of The Simpsons.

Ralph makes me think of Judy Blume!

Hamish is good but not if you're a sassenach.

Ralph is appearing fairly frequently on here-a definite rise in popularity without being used a lot.

Would you go for Ralf or Rafe for the pronounciation of Ralph?

I like Ralph with its Rafe pn or if not, Hamish. Hamish is a great name!

ScarletSienna Tue 04-Oct-16 13:28:34

Yes Bohemond! Pulsating.

Ralph is the name of a penis in a Judy Blue novel. Please don't.

ScarletSienna Tue 04-Oct-16 13:51:42

Haha at the typo of 'Judy Blue'. It certainly was seen as almost blue at the time!

Bil and sil have a little Ralph. I was unsure at first but it's sweet and suits him.

I had forgotten about Judy Blume until now though!

Don't you think people will instantly forget any old (Blume) associations once they meet a lovely real life Ralph? Associations change very quickly imo.

Ralph is hideous

Hamish every time

Although I am biased as I have one!
