What do you think? Surname will be Black.

He likes Eric Arthur but I'm not so keen.

Both middle names are lovely. Eric is much nicer than Archie.

I prefer Eric Arthur. Much funkier.

mumpoints Wed 14-Feb-18 17:41:17

Prefer Archie Black to Eric Black

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 14-Feb-18 17:47:40

Archie is much better.

Definitely Archie William

Cutesy names like Archie, Alfie etc will soon sound dated imo.

MammieBear Thu 15-Feb-18 09:01:33

Lovely, very sweet.

Eric William

I like Archie

Archie definitely. Although I would name him Archibald to be known as Archie.

PeonyTruffle Thu 15-Feb-18 10:11:01

I have an Archie. I don’t think it’s cutesy confused

My Archie’s middle name is Jack

TulipsInABlueVase Thu 15-Feb-18 11:43:59

Eric is much nicer.

Eric Black is amazing.

pipilangstrumpf Thu 15-Feb-18 14:18:28

Eric Black is much cooler than Archibald Black!

cptartapp Thu 15-Feb-18 14:52:19

Yep, Archie is too cutesy, same vein as Charlie, Freddie, Alfie, Albie, etc etc. Somewhat insubstantial and will date. William is gorgeous.
William Eric or William Arthur. Archie doesn't fit with any of those.

franktheskank Thu 15-Feb-18 15:47:13

Archie William is lovely , Eric though ....
confused

Sophronia Thu 15-Feb-18 19:50:57

I like Eric Black

daisypond Thu 15-Feb-18 21:41:34

Eric is better than Archie, which is diminutive and cutesy. Archer? Not the sort of name I'd normally go for, but it sounds rather good to me.

Kokeshi123 Thu 15-Feb-18 23:26:13

Archer is nice. Archie by itself is OK though.

Buntysoven Thu 15-Feb-18 23:50:15

I'm not keen on both Eric and Black ending in the same sound. Archie Black is fab.

MealyPotatoes Thu 15-Feb-18 23:56:42

They both sound cool. Just see which you prefer once he's here.

A few Archies in my family. Big tough Scotsmen - not cutesy!
