New name added to our (very short) list. How many Albies do you know?

Full name would be Albert.

DisneySenior Sun 25-Feb-18 11:36:01

I don't know any but I absolutely love the name

MikeUniformMike Sun 25-Feb-18 11:40:33

I dislike it, and Albert isn't very nice. Sorry.

Lulue45 Sun 25-Feb-18 11:46:48

That’s fine Mike I was asking how many people know not if they like it but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Don’t know any but DS was nearly Albert, NN Bertie! I loved it but husband not so keen

Don't know any, love Albert, it was on my boy list. Prefer Bertie to Albie, though.

TallulahBetty Sun 25-Feb-18 13:23:28

I know 3 in our small town.

Slapdasherie Sun 25-Feb-18 13:25:19

I know an Albie, but it’s short for Albertine.

PaddlingShoes Sun 25-Feb-18 13:28:00

I love it and I know a three week old Albie too!

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 25-Feb-18 13:41:51

I think it’s dreadful, sorry.

pangolinga Sun 25-Feb-18 15:42:52

Someone somewhere is going to decide that Albert should be known as Bertie or, erm, Bert.

Lulue45 Sun 25-Feb-18 15:49:04

I quite like Bertie too actually so that’s a potential nn anyway

DullAndOld Sun 25-Feb-18 15:51:56

I don't know, Albie and Bertie sound like babies or toddlers, while Albert sounds like an old man.

MrsBartlettforthewin Sun 25-Feb-18 16:00:23

I teach one who is nick named Bertie. Love Albie as a nick name

TammySwansonTwo Sun 25-Feb-18 16:01:47

I really wanted to use it, DH vetoed it. I would probably have used Bertie though as any time I hear Albie I think “racist dragon”

The only Albie I know is a dog!
