My husband and I are expecting our first baby next week, but despite narrowing our list of names down to four we are still struggling to choose. I would really appreciate your help as we are getting nowhere.
Our choices are:
Edward nn Ted
Arthur nn Art/Artie
Alfred nn Alf/Fred
Albert nn Bert

Thank you so much!

Edward. The others are nowhere near as nice.

Thank you smile

Edward. I'm biased because I have one (known as Eddie). Ted is a lovely shortening too.

Edward is my favourite too.

I have a Fred and a Bert grin

(Alfred and Albert)

Alfred or Albert.

Thank you for all of your help..seems they are all popular. Edward out in front at the moment...

I think Edward is by far the nicest.

Don't worry though, you'll know which one is right when you meet him smile

All very nice names. I think Arthur is quite popular just now, so I'd pick Albert, and I especially like Bertie as a nn.

Edward and Albert are my favourites

BrutusMcDogface Sun 11-Feb-18 18:49:06

I think Edward, too!

Looks like Edward is in first place! Thank you all for taking the time to comment, this is my first post and has been really helpful.

I'm voting for Alfred, as I like Alfie and Freddie as nn.

Edward for me! Congrats

Edward by a mile.

LarkDescending Sun 11-Feb-18 23:01:24

Edward/Ted for me too.

Albert is a nice name but I can't help thinking about a Prince Albert

Arthur is lovely, I never even thought of it for a boy.
