I was all set to name this baby Jasper Francis but tonight, dh has told me he has tried really hard to like it but just doesn't. He thinks it's too comedy posh in his words.
I have to let it go, dont I?
We've decided to choose from the following names. Which would you pick? We're not really open to other suggestions as we both have large families where most names have been used.
Thank you.

How posh is Jasper Carrott? It’s a biblical name.

Jasper is waaaay nicer than any of those.

Just change the middle name to something more blokey like Adam.

I would go with Patrick Adam or Douglas Adam.

I only like Asher from the list but Jasper is my favourite out of them all.

Adam or Patrick

It has to be Asher if you want to keep the 's in the middle' theme you already have going on.

Adam ❤️

Edwin Patrick is the nicest combination IMO.

Jossina Wed 27-Nov-19 04:19:18

Patrick Jasper, sometimes called PJ.

I love Edwin

Adam, Patrick and Douglas from that list. Can Francis stay in if it's paired with something else?

My favourite is Patrick with any of the other four as middle name.

Oh no! why didnt i think of douglas adam! grin (im a massive fan)

Asher is the nicest from your list.

I also like Fraser/Frazer

How posh is Jasper Carrott?

He is actually called Robert Norman Davis.

SoupDragon Wed 27-Nov-19 07:33:28

If your DH doesn't like the name you can't use it, regardless of why he doesn't like it.

I like Asher or Douglas best, followed by Adam.

Astronica Wed 27-Nov-19 07:33:35

Jasper, Patrick, Douglas. The only one I really dislike though is Asher.

Leopardprintboots Wed 27-Nov-19 08:18:21

Douglas will just end up as Doug. I really don’t like it sorry- it’s horrible.
Love all your other choices. I love Jasper but appreciate you cant use. How about Casper?

Asher or Adam are my favourites from your new list.

I nearly chose Jasper as a name but went for Rufus instead. Probably equally comedy posh tbh. Patrick is lovely.

Marcipex Wed 27-Nov-19 12:06:39

Jasper is lovely
Edwin is the best from your list but none are great.

Is there any persuading your husband here? I think once he meets a few little ones he’ll reLise that names aren’t reserved for posh people anymore. I know Ruperts and Oscars and Hugo’s on council estates.
