Opinions on names for DS2

DS1 has one of the top 10 most popular names (sorry, but I'm not putting any more than that!)

DS2 is due any day, and DH and I both like Harry.

What are your thoughts on Harry Thomas? I can't decide if it "flows" well or not blush

Fwiw he'll have a second middle name (my middle name, also a surname) which is 2 syllables and surname is 1 syllable.

Dh and I both have unusual names (which I absolutely detest) so I'm keen not to go for anything too "out there".

Any thoughts?

I think it sounds really nice and I like the name Harry a lot. It's quite popular but you don't mind that. Go for it!

Thanks Mini thanks

It was so, so easy naming Ds1 - a name that I've always loved, dh really liked it too, and he "looks" like his name. But this time around has been so bloody difficult, not least because dh's favourite is something more suited to a Labrador than a little boy hmm

Harry William is a bit too "Royal", isn't it? (William was another contender for a first name in my mind)

Harry Thomas is lovely!

I'd probably use Henry Thomas for the birth certificate as it flows better to my mind, and just call him Harry. But I'm sure plenty of people will come along and tell me how wrong that would be.

Harry Thomas is nice, OP.

I love Harry Thomas.

Harry Thomas is a very good name.

I really want to know your dp's choice that is 'more suitable for a Labrador', though! Our labradors were Judy, Rocky and Bruno.

Harry Thomas is a perfectly fine name.

Phew! Thanks all thanks

I think we've been round in circles so much that I've lost the ability to be objective (also heat and hormones aren't helping - I just want labour to start now sad )

None of those names Bridge grin but I really can't say as it's quite popular on here as a human name blush

It's probably going to put me completely, but dh's grandparents had a dog with this name who he adored, but fuck knows how he thought it would be a good name for a DS confused grin

Your DH's favourite is Rex, isn't it? grin

Harry Thomas is lovely, btw.

"...not least because dh's favourite is something more suited to a Labrador than a little boy hmm "

Oh, I don't know, though: 'Bouncer' has a certain ring to it.

I love Harry. I don't think it's too popular atm, it's not a faddy name either just consistently popular.

Harry Thomas goes well.

Harry William is nice too, but it is a tad too royal imo.

Harry Thomas is lovely.

Was the dog called max? Every time someone mentions it I think of a Labrador, either that or the dog was called rover. grin

I love Harry Thomas- goes really well.

I know what you mean about dog names. Growing up my dog was Jack so now even though it's a human name and lots of children have it...I always think of the dog!
