Do they sound too similar and wrong together? Already got an Archie but really love Alfie for our next DS due in Feb. Love A names ending in 'ie' it seems grin

They sound like brothers. They go fine.

Yes fine.

To me the names always remind me of each other but I think that means they work well as sibling names

So similar and sooo common. I think I know more little Archie's and Alfie's than anything else, they're eveywhere. And none of them are really Archibald and Alfred so they'll grow up and still have little kid when they're grown men.

Too similar IMO

I know 2 families who have children called Alfie and Archie. I think they sound lovely together.

Too similar.

I think a bit too similar as well, sorry.

Split opinions, v helpfulgrinhaha.

We also like Albie, don't know if this sounds any better with Archie or still too similar hmm

Bit too similar for me too

Nice ,solid names 😊
I'm crushing on Alfred (the great) atm too

Too similar for me but not terrible.

Too similar and too common imo.

There's millions of them about

Not Alfie.

For starters it's too similar to Archie and plus it's not a great name.

Archie and Tom
Archie and Benjamin
Archie and Oliver
Archie and Fred
Archie and Dexter
Archie and Oscar
Archie and Luca
Archie and Hugo

I think it goes, as to popularity, would that bother you? In this area there are quite a few of both, but if you don't mind that then go for it. Like Alfie, but slightly more unusual is Artie, also Avery and Aubrey.

I think it's fine!

TheDowagerCuntess Tue 18-Oct-16 17:30:52

Way too similar for me, but I also wouldn't as they're both so of the moment, and will date.

There's so many names to choose from!

auntym Thu 20-Oct-16 17:11:19

Yes, lovely together!

I like Archie but don't like Alfie very much. It doesn't sound complete to me for some reason whereas Archie does, although I know that, traditionally, it would have been a shortened version of Archibald or something. Albie is better but I might wonder if you were a bit lacking in imagination if I heard Archie and Albie. They are quite similar - both are short names with two syllables, begin with A and end ie. How about Wilfie or Wilfred? Or go with Alfred and then he could be Fred or Alfie.
