Just wanted to get peoples thoughts on which of the two they prefer.... me and partner seem to have got down to a final two names for our baby due this month.

We don’t mind either but I prefer one and he prefers the other.

Which one do you like best?

Also open to suggestions of other names... already had Elijah, George, Henry, Elias, Harry, Louis and are now ruled out for various reasons .

Thanks 😊

Hugo 100%
I dislike Robin unfortunately

Hugo, Robin always sounds a bit wet to me.

Wow you have such good taste- both names are gorgeous, I would definitely pick one of them!

Hugo is more common than robin as it’s higher up the charts, does that bother you?

Robin could get shortened to Rob or Robbie- would you mind that?

I think they’re both GORGEOUS names. Slight preference for Robin but love both

If not how about Miles, Rex, Barnaby, Jasper or Rupert

Hugo for me. I agree that Robin is a bit wet.

Robin is very wet. Hugo is the better choice

Hugo, by a long way.

I’m not wild about either. I find Robin wet too. Rupert or Robert are stronger names. So I’d go for Hugo.

Love Robin
Dislike Hugo

My friend's absolutely wonderful dog Hugo died of old age two days ago. If your child has an ounce of his stoic kind funny clever nature he will be doing well. A great name for a great character.

Thanks everyone... Hugo seems to be the clear winner here... will decide 100% when we meet him but I think it’s swaying more towards Hugo for us then grin

Hugo ! But I’m going to say that as my ds 14 months is Hugo. I’ve not met another irl yet so it’s obviously not popular in my area even if it’s in the top 100.

My Hugo is such a content and happy little boy. It really suits him.

I do like Robin as well. Both lovely names.

Robin. Hugo seems a bit faddy at the moment.

Robin. Hugo sounds pretentious to me.

Hugo, Robin is very lacklustre, and he'll end up as Rob or Robbie which totally doesn't have the feel of Robin so I think you might end up regretting it.

Plus Hugo is LOVELY - strong yet cuddly and just a touch unusual without being hard to say, spell etc.

MarshaBradyo Fri 01-Nov-19 12:33:00

Hugo because Robin is a bit soft and will just be Rob which I really dislike

OceanPearl Fri 01-Nov-19 14:03:20

We had Hugo if we had a boy but we’re having a girl. It’s such a lovely name x

Definitely Hugo, don't really like Robin as a boys name

Astronica Sat 02-Nov-19 00:10:32

Definitely Hugo - I love this. I just can't warm to Robin.

MrsNoMopp Sat 02-Nov-19 00:18:58

I prefer Hugo.
