Which do you prefer for DS2? If neither then what else?

I prefer Hamish, but Barnaby is nice too!

Hamish, you never meet a professional Barnaby.

PetalMettle Wed 13-Sep-17 07:52:16

I like both. I'd possibly say Barnaby as you can shorten to Barney.
How ludicrous to say you never meet a professional Barnaby - the Australian deputy pm is one! I also know of lawyers

There's a Mr Universe called Barnaby.

I love the name Barnaby! What's your first dcs name?

Barnaby..shortened to Barney is gorgeous!

I prefer Barnaby but I like Hamish too

Both gorgeous, Barnaby less usual

Op those names are far too nice and sensible. I vote for Peace or Nosh. Or something like Ayedreean, just to be yooneek.

WinterRose92 Wed 13-Sep-17 10:05:11

I really like both but Hamish just tips it for me!

Choccyhobnob Wed 13-Sep-17 10:05:41

I secretly love Barnaby but it would never get past DH...

Barnaby is dire. And Barnaby Joyce (Australia's Deputy PM) is a dipshit, and I say that as someone who votes Liberal.

I love the name Hamish

bridgetreilly Wed 13-Sep-17 10:33:47

Barnaby is lovely.

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 13-Sep-17 14:32:35

Hamish is a great name.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 13-Sep-17 17:09:16

Hamish, a good strong name.

georgie262 Wed 13-Sep-17 17:30:18

I like Barnaby but my grandad was Barney so I'm biased but I live it

Sophronia Wed 13-Sep-17 23:14:52

Hamish. I prefer Barnabas to Barnaby.

Lemondrop99 Thu 14-Sep-17 17:45:06


Barnaby feels a bit like a pet name to me

Scribblegirl Thu 14-Sep-17 17:46:47

I love both, I know a really lovely lawyer called Barnaby but either works. I may be biased though as a friend has a (gorgeous) Hamish so I don't think I could use it!
