For a friend. Beautiful baby boy born yesterday, and stuck between these two names. I personally prefer Freddiegrinwhat do you think? I think (should of checked) they are also considering Alfie.

Oscar. Freddie would suit a baby but it's a bit silly on an adult.

His dog is called Oscar

I have an Oscar with middle name Freddie. Think they're both brill names obviously!

Freddie Flintoff. (I am aware this isn't his real name) but surely he most like this name to want to use it. I think he really suits it grin

I also think Freddie Mercury suited it as well. Not sure if it was his real name haha

I think Freddie sounds awful on anyone who's not a toddler or a frog.

I am pregnant, and considering Dylan for a boy. ( haven't mentioned this to my friend as she might steal it ) grin what are your thoughts on this? Might as well ask wink

Find out tomorrow. But I have a strong feeling I'm having a girl grin

Freddie Flintoff confuses me. Sometimes he calls himself Andrew and sometimes he's Freddie! Make your mind up man grin

I like Frederick lots of possibilities for NN not just Freddie and he's an Austen Hero so must be a proper professional grown up grin

Oh I do love Captain Wentworth

I'm not a fan of Freddie at all, I much prefer Oscar.

Dylan is better than both though. Great name.

MitzyLeFrouf Mon 10-Oct-16 16:28:32

Yes I like Dylan too.

Alfred and then they could have Freddie and/or Alfie as nns.

My baby is Oscar Dylan grin

Freddie is an awful name, even with the Freddie Mercury (whose name was Farrokh) association. Frederick nn Fred is nice, however.

I think I've just realised why Freddie shits me: HR Pufnstuf.

I don't like nicknames as real names. Freddie cute but it shouldn't be the full name. So Oscar.
