We’ve chosen the name for boy! But can’t decide which way round,

Bertie Thomas
Thomas Bertie

We are going to call him Bertie , but thought for later life he might want a more “normal” name! (Well hubby does) lol I love Bertie so happy either way! Xx

If you're going to call him Bertie whatever then I don't see why you wouldn't use that as the first name - although maybe if he needs a 'Sunday best' name Albert Thomas is a possibility?

Thomas Bertie. Unless the Bertie is going to be short for a name like Albert/Gilbert, etc.

tootfox Sun 12-Nov-17 11:35:14

Not lean on Albert, we don’t have any grandads called that or anything to make us like it,

Hubby likes Thomas Bertie , so that seems to be the favourite , I love any!!

Thanks for your help xx

Bertram Wilberforce Thomas.
Like Bertie Wooster. grin

If he's going to be "Bertie" (nice, btw) as a standalone rather than a shortening, I don't see why you can't still just use it as his first name...didn't do those on this list any harm.

I vote Bertie Thomas.

Aargh, sorry, OP...I forgot to refresh the page and X-posted.

Well, whichever way round you go for, I like Bertie!

ImADingleDangleScarecrow Sun 12-Nov-17 11:51:20

Albert Thomas with Bertie as a nn would be my choice. From the options you’ve given - Thomas Bertie.

pipilangstrumpf Sun 12-Nov-17 11:51:35

If he’s going to be Bertie, then put that first on his bc. Nobody uses middle names so they don’t have to sound good together. More important to have a first name you love!

So Bertie Thomas.

Albert Thomas

Bertrand Thomas

Crikey. The more you think about it, the options grow:

Hubert, Herbert, Cuthbert, Norbert, Egbert, Engelbert...
(Am not passing judgement, just mentioning them <cough>).

Notalitigator Sun 12-Nov-17 12:07:11

Robert Thomas? He can then have Bertie nn

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 12-Nov-17 13:30:19

Robert Thomas is very nice !

Standardpubquizname Sun 12-Nov-17 14:24:05

Love Robert Thomas or Albert Thomas with Bertie as a nickname

Although I personally prefer Thomas, if you’re going to be calling him Bertie then surely that should be his first name?

Kazzawazza69 Sun 12-Nov-17 20:56:10

Congrats on choosing 2 lovely names! Thomas Bertie ‘flows’ better but I agree with pp’s that if you’re going to call him Bertie you should give him that as a first name.
