Which do you prefer, and how many of each do you know?

Peter
Lots of young George's near me, I only know one Peter who is 5.

Peter

I love Peter - makes me think of Peter Pan, which I loved as a child. I don't know any Peter's. I know one George.

George. Know two I think, don't know any Peters since leaving school.

Peter. Heaving with Georges round here.

Peter, wish I had used it in my son's name

Peter George sounds good !

Peter.
I love George but it’s very common.
Peter is lovely, strong name. Sounds good for all ages.

Peter.

Peter.

George is massively popular already.

Estellanpip Sat 10-Feb-18 21:17:54

(I'm biased) Peter.

Meepmoop Sat 10-Feb-18 21:18:06

I like George our DS would have been called it if I hadn't used it on our cat already

ChocolateCrunch Sat 10-Feb-18 21:20:30

I like George - know 1 aged 7. Not keen on Peter - know 1 aged about 9 or 10.

UsernameInvalid66 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:26:28

I like George better, but I know lots under the age of about 20, and hardly any Peters.

BikeRunSki Sat 10-Feb-18 21:28:55

Peter, by a very long way

There are loads of little Georges out there at the moment.

Annabelle4 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:29:42

I love both, but would choose Peter due to the popularity of George

Changednamejustincase Sat 10-Feb-18 21:38:51

Don't know a single Peter or George under the age of 50. I like both a lot. You can't go wrong with that decision.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 10-Feb-18 21:40:24

Peter. Georges are everywhere.

Suits247 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:46:45

I definitely prefer George but yes it’s really gained popularity recently.

oldbirdy Sat 10-Feb-18 22:03:52

I liked Peter but it means "to fart" in French - with lots of relatives in France it didn't work for our family.

Peter. George is very popular. Peter is wonderfully softly spoken yet strong. Also I think it means "rock" (clearly very strong!)

FancyNewBeesly Sat 10-Feb-18 22:16:53

My abusive father was called George so that was obviously out for me but since the royal baby I’d say it’s too heavily used now anyway.

(Strangely, my mum’s similarly abusive next husband? Peter)

I’d say Peter is the better choice though!

George Peter sounds good

I have a Peter (2) we always get comments on his name.
