DS arrived a week ago and still has no name! This is our shortlist but we are struggling to agree on the perfect one. Which do you prefer?

Albert and I would call him Bertie

My preference is Arthur. Second place goes to Albert (love Bert as a nn). Elliott is in third place for me.

All good names though OP.

Oh agree with PP, Albert nn Bertie would be lovely.
I think Elliot is a marmite name. I'm in the dislike camp.

Arthur, then Albert and a very faraway third of Elliot.

Olivelor Wed 04-Oct-17 17:44:43

Congratulations on your new baby! flowers
My preference is Arthur. Reminds me of King Arthur. smile
Albert sounds a bit blunt.

mrsmc2017 Wed 04-Oct-17 17:46:54

Albert (Bertie!)

Elliot or Arthur. I'm not a fan of Albert although objectively it is a perfectly good name.

Dislike Albert and Albie.

Arthur and Albert are older names: fashionable at the moment because parents are naming their DC after their grandparents

Elliott is a much more modern name (albeit with old roots), and is increasingly used as a girls name too. So a very different "type" of name IYSWIM

Don't really like Eliot.
