I love Freddie (we would put Frederick on the birth cert) but my DH is not so sure. He likes Dylan, which I kind of like, but I feel like Freddie is better! Which would you choose? Middle name will be Stephen, after my Dad.

Actually come to think of it, my DH's choice wouldn't sound quite right with the middle name, would it? Dylannnnnn Stephennnnn confused

I don't think Dylan Stephen would work. Freddie Stephen sounds better

I fear Freddie has become very popular - I only personally know 2 baby boys born in the past year and they're both called Freddie.

I work in schools, most Dylans are naughty.

Dylan by a long way.

I don't like it so much with the middle name Stephen, but they're so rarely actually said together.

Of the two, Freddie but I really don't like Dylan.

Freddie. It just rhymes so well ..cue endless parental amusement at Freddie teddie beddie (my 10yo Freddie not quite as amused anymore..) but, honestly, it's a great name. Also means King (German origin)

Freddie. I can't abide the name Dylan.
I don't particularly like Freddie, either, but. Its far far nicer than Dylan

LostwithSawyer Sun 24-Sep-17 20:04:08

Dylan is nicer than Freddie

Mrsknackered Sun 24-Sep-17 20:06:24

Freddie! Love it. And all the Fred's I know are lovely.
I dislike Dylan greatly.

Frederick nn Freddie

Dylan Frederick Stephen...

Dylan is a lovely name and you don't normally say the first/middle names together. Freddie is nice for a toddler but not sure how well it suits an adult.

Frederick Stephen

I love Freddie nn.Frederick and it would've been no.4s name if she had been a boy.

Not keen on Dylan...

starkid Mon 25-Sep-17 16:33:31

I prefer Dylan, but perhaps a different middle name (they aren't terrible together though).
