Of the boys names I only like Freddy and the girls Clementine. Not keen on any of the others for various reasons.

James and Clementine.

Strongly dislike Colin and Portia.

Very safe

Love Rupert and Clementine. Like James and Freddy too, but not keen on your other choices, sorry.

I like James and Freddy. Don’t like the girls names but if I had to pick then i’d go with Beatrice

Interesting, Clementine is DH's pick that I'm not so keen on although it seems not unpopular here. The name itself I don't mind but I don't really like the inevitable "Clem/Clemmy" nickname.

James and Clementine.

Not keen on the girls.

Constance?

Clementine and James.
I actually like Colin.

bluebabydinosaur Wed 07-Feb-18 09:23:11

James is the only one I like.

Rupert the bear
Colin the caterpillar
Freddy Krueger
James, nothing to dislike there but nothing to love either.

Portia, really no for me.
Beatrice - I like.
Clementine - tasty fruit but clemmy sounds like a cross between phlegm and clammy.

I like Frederick and James from your boys list. I like all three names from your girls list but my favourite is Beatrice.

if your DH is set on Clementine though, how about Clementina? Her nickname could be Tina then and it avoid the Clem/Clemmy nickname.

I know 2 Clementines so it's starting to be trendy.

I pick Rupert and Beatrice

Beatrice and James

Like them all except Colin which is very uncool.

HuskyMcClusky Wed 07-Feb-18 15:41:10

When I see/hear Colin, I immediately think ‘colon’.

Probs just me.

James and Portia.

Boy
Rupert the Bear
Colin the Caterpillar
James
Frederick (Freddy for short) - Fred West and Fred the Shred.

Girl
Portia
Beatrice Ok
Clementine - it's a fruit.

RavenWings Wed 07-Feb-18 18:55:04

Boy
Rupert - meh, wet imo.
Colin - oh god, no.
James - nice
Frederick (Freddy for short) - ok. Very popular but nice

Girl - I hate all of the names you listed.

Thistlebelle Wed 07-Feb-18 18:57:51

James and Beatrice.

The others are fine but I strongly wouldn’t want to be called Clementine personally.

Screamingontheinside Wed 07-Feb-18 19:06:24

Out of the choice I like James and Clementine, not really too keen on the others.

MancUnicorn Wed 07-Feb-18 19:27:44

Boy
Rupert - know a few dogs called Rupert. Like it on a kid, not an adult. Still think it's a cute name though
Colin - family name, wish it would make a comeback
James - classy name
Frederick (Freddy for short) - Like it. Was my favourite for a long time

Girl
Portia - noooo
Beatrice - yes
Clementine - hmmmm. The Walking Dead games spring to mind. Just makes me hungry too

I like Portia and Clementine, and Rupert.
