From those, I only like Monty (Montgomery)

I don’t really see Freddie and Monty as names so I’d vote for Arthur or Thomas

Monty is awful.
When is this Arthur fixation going to end.
Freddie is cute, but not to my personal taste.
You can’t go wrong with Thomas. It’s a classic. You can’t make an assumptions on age or class. Plus Tom is a proper manly name. All the Toms I’ve ever met have been lovely

Haha thank you for your comments

We also like Dexter...

Like all of them, but like Monty best. Not Dexter.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Wed 11-Sep-19 16:44:44

Love Dexter.

I love Freddie, I think it’s gorgeous.
If ever I had another son I would call him Freddie.

MrsBertBibby Wed 11-Sep-19 17:32:07

Frederick, not Freddie.

Thomas is nice but overused.

Monty and Arthur are awful.

MissHenty Wed 11-Sep-19 17:41:21

I like Arthur and Freddie

Not keen on Dexter and agree with pp that Thomas is overused. I really like Monty, I know a 5 year old Monty, it really suits him.

MissHenty Wed 11-Sep-19 22:13:23

Monty sounds very very posh to me

Lotsofbuttons Wed 11-Sep-19 22:50:22

I like Monty
Also love Arthur but it’s climbed massively in popularity recently
Freddie is also very sweet

Monty to me is a dogs name. I know loads. Arthur I dislike. Thomas is ok but everywhere. Dexter makes me think of beef or serial murderers. Sorry.

If he's Frederick first, or even Alfred then Freddie is fine. Dexter isn't bad either, but it's a total other direction. Monty only as a nickname.

Dexter or Monty fab names x

Expressedways Thu 12-Sep-19 03:48:22

I love Freddie but would go with Frederick or Alfred on the birth certificate. Alternatively Thomas is a nice classic. Arthur is a bit boring and everywhere right now. I know so many dog’s call Monty. I don’t like Dexter as I think serial killer or cows.

Thomas is my favourite but Monty is adorable! However, I’d see it as a cute small child name rather than a name for a teenager or adult (might be just me).

I like Thomas and Arthur. Thomas is constantly popular whereas Arthur is currently enjoying a popularity spike. Freddie and Monty are nicknames IMO. Dexter isn't my taste, sorry.

Lotsofbuttons Thu 12-Sep-19 19:54:22

I went for a full name on birth certificate for DS 1 , however he is never referred to as the full name and the full name has actually become very very popular now (frustrating when I wanted a more unusual name) I think if you like a shortened version of a name then definitely go for it. In history lots of names have come about as diminutives of much longer names and are now accepted as names in their own right.

PixieLoo Thu 12-Sep-19 19:55:33

Just popping in to say i love Monty & Arthur! All of them are lovely!

123Dancewithme Thu 12-Sep-19 23:15:55

Thomas, definitely.

Of those, Thomas.

I like Leo.
