Aleksander with Olek as nn.

Benedykt Gabriel.
Would you not consider Gabriel as a first name

YoungYolandaYorgensen39 Mon 17-Apr-17 16:57:29

Any of them work for me. Good list.

I really like Kuba.

Or Bruno or Benedykt.

Congrats x

Bruno. But all of them are lovely.

I might be tempted to avoid Olaf for now because of Frozen.

I love Gabriel so much I can't choose one of the others, sorry!

Abetes Mon 17-Apr-17 17:05:21

I like Gabriel best too!!!

DaisyChainsForever Mon 17-Apr-17 17:07:06

My vote is for Jakub

JaeDon Mon 17-Apr-17 17:08:43

They're all lovely - but I particularly like Bruno, Artur and Kuba (Jakub). I'd probably avoid Olaf although it is a really nice name.

Another vote for Gabriel

Bruno is a really great name, also like Benedykt and Jakub. And Emil, in fact! I guess it depends how anglicised you want it to feel?

BackforGood Mon 17-Apr-17 17:11:49

I think it depends how much you would be bothered with people spelling them differently ? (I'm presuming from your Olaf comment you are Polish, but living in the UK?)

So, Aleksander is lovely, but it will be spelled Alexander (Alex) by almost everyone when they first go to write it, and then the same applies for a lot of the others too - you'd get


Now - if that is fine with you, then I like lots of them, but if you want to avoid that, then one of the others would make more sense, probably. smile

Aleksander, Bruno and Oskar are my favourites.

Enidblyton1 Mon 17-Apr-17 17:13:58

I love Bruno (also the easiest for English people to spell if that's a consideration!)

HeyCat Mon 17-Apr-17 17:14:32

Jakub or teodor

Error404usernamenotfound Mon 17-Apr-17 17:16:02


I think Teodor is fab - nn Teo or Ted, depending on how much you want to Anglicise it.

Gabriel's lovely too, and probably works best in the UK in terms of people getting spelling and pronunciation right.

I don't like Bruno or Olaf; the others are OK but he will spend his entire life correcting spelling and pronunciation. (admittedly Teodor woudn't be without it's problems on that score, but I've just slightly fallen in love with it grin )

FirstSeemItThenBeIt Mon 17-Apr-17 17:16:06

Ooh, Benedykt is a great name!!

cosytoaster Mon 17-Apr-17 17:17:40

Aleksander or Benedykt - I have Gabriel as a middle name for DS2 but wish I'd held out for it as a first name!

Sophronia Mon 17-Apr-17 17:21:30

Artur Gabriel or Bruno Gabriel

booksandhearts Mon 17-Apr-17 17:24:25

Love Bruno!,
Congrats btw x

DramaAlpaca Mon 17-Apr-17 17:59:01

Jakub, because that's DS's friend's name and he's lovely smile

It's a nice list of names, you can't go wrong really.

EzioAuditore Mon 17-Apr-17 18:45:51

A lovely set of names, so it's hard to choose! I think Artur Gabriel just edges it for me. And congratulations!

TyrionLannistersShadow Mon 17-Apr-17 18:47:12

I like Izaak myself.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Mon 17-Apr-17 18:54:06

I wish Gabriel Benedykt was an option...

I like Bruno and Emil.
