I love Wilfred and the fact that he'd have the option to be Will, Fred, Freddie, Billy, Wilfred, Wilf.

Wilfred is lovely and goes well with your other names, it's on my list too. Not sure about Ralph as it sounds a bit like a dog barking to me. Good luck OP.

Ralph is adorable

CricketRuntAndRashers Thu 11-May-17 10:38:23

Ralph: adorable
Wilfred: I really like that one
Hamish: It seems to be a bit too (?) popular, doesn't it?

Love Wilfred and Hamish equally!

Wilfred Hamish sounds better than Hamish Wilfred, so if you haven the got middle names sorted then maybe that?

bridgetreilly Thu 11-May-17 12:36:11

In order:
Ralph (don't really like this at all)

I like Ralph pronounced Rafe, but otherwise definitely Hamish

Lemondrop09 Thu 11-May-17 13:38:10

Wilfred! Little Wilf is so cute

Congratulations flowers
I love Hamish!

Sophronia Thu 11-May-17 13:55:55

All three are nice, but I think Hamish goes best with the other two, folllowed by Ralph.

mollyminniemo Thu 11-May-17 13:58:22

Hamish- esp if you have Scottish roots

sonlypuppyfat Thu 11-May-17 14:06:38

I can't imagine any teenager thanking you for calling them Wilfred it's pretty wet and wimpy, Hamish is ok if you are Scottish

peaceloveandbiscuits Thu 11-May-17 14:23:34

Sonly Wilfred Owen?

Elbi Thu 11-May-17 14:54:16

All lovely. Sorry to be unhelpful but personally I don't think you can go wrong.
