Which do you prefer and why? We love them both equally, siblings would be Eli and Aphra! (Not pregnant btw, I have pcos and it takes AGES to conceive so I like to try focus in the fun stuff like names)

I like both equally as well, and they both go with your other names so it's even harder to choose.

I suppose it depends on whether or not you like Toby, as that is what Tobias is likely to get shortened to.

I've always loved Otis

I will be honest Toby wouldn't be my favourite, I like it but would personally just use Tobias, if friends used Toby it would be ok ish I guess.

I really like both, but Otis feels quirkier and fits a little better with your other kids' names IMO.

Otis is nicer and more interesting.

Not so keen on Otis, but LOVE the name Tobias. I would call my own baby that but had an ex called Toby... so feels a bit wrong to.

Otis! Fits with the other names nicer.

I love Toby and would choose this myself, but I think Otis is a great match with your other names.

Otis. Really nice name smile

And Toby or Tobias just doesn't really go with Eli and Aphra.

You are all really selling me on Otis grin

I love Otis. It was very nearly the name of our DS1.

Not a fan of Tobias.

Otis. It's so cool. LOVE your other children's names too.

*Otis is an aardvark.

The aardvark thing doesn't bother me, never even heard of it before tbh had to have a Google.

Now I really dying to get a BFP so I can use Otis smile

I prefer Tobias, but both are nice. For me I can't disassociate Otis from the company who make life and escalators!
