And we’re down to our final two...what do you think?

Rafael or Rufus?

I think Rufus is a fabulous name. Really not keen on Raphael though, sorry.

@Alicenwonderland, am now totally intrigued by your other DC’s names. Would you be willing to share them? 😀

No one ever told me his name was awful thankfully, they may have thought it but didn't say it! That's the joy of Mumsnet. All four of mine have unique names so just go with what you like, it's probably best not to ask people's opinions as they will make you doubt your choices. My eldest is 18 and loves his unusual name and likes that he's the only one with it that he knows in this country.

@Alicenwonderland, that’s really good to hear, thank you! x

Thanks so much for all the thoughts so far!

@PlantPotting, no...still have decided. The opinions on here continue to be divided between the names relatively equally, which makes it super-hard! (And I can’t help but feel a little deflated when a few of the opinions are that both names are “awful”, although I am, of course, aware that everyone has the right to their own opinion. Still, mostly positive impressions, thanks lovely posters!)

Have you decided @Starfish83

I have a Rufus. It's a fab name, really suits him and he has never been teased.

At a push Rufus. I'm sorry but they are both awful.

Rufus makes me think Rufus the Dufus....or roofies (as in the date rape drug).....or the dog down the street

I love both but Rufus is an absolute favourite of mine so my vote goes to Rufus.

Rufus. Rafael sounds a bit frilly to me.
