So I'm 20 weeks with my 3rd baby we've found out it's a boy we have 2 girls already Keira abs Myla my fiancé likes Charlie but I like Owen it Oliver it's not that I don't like Charlie just I don't love it 🤷‍♀️

He would be called Charlie Michael Edwin french just don't know if I'm set on it or not

Any other boy suggestions I can sling at my OH ?

Thanks x

Owen is gorgeous and works well with Keira and Myla imo. Charlie is okay but more subject to fashion whims than Charles (nn Charlie). Olivier is lovely but just too popular for me.

Other suggestions - Evan, Dylan, Max, Oscar, Felix, Ethan, Logan, Rowan.

I’m not keen on Charlie. Owen is nicer. So are Michael and Edwin.

I don't mind Charlie but it just feels a bit incomplete to me. Love Owen.

I have a big Teenage Charlie now, but I always loved it since I was a kid.. I don’t think it goes particularly with your girls names though so would with Owen or Oliver x

I find Charlie a bit 'meh' 🤷🏼‍♀️

Charlie is OK, although I prefer Edwin.

When I had my DS it seemed like every boy was called Charlie. I find it massively overused and a bit dull.

Owen is much nicer than Charlie.

I'm having the same dilemma! 27 weeks now and my husband is set on Charlie, I have no feelings either way towards it, it's fine I guess? I don't love it but can't think of any I do love.

I like Charlie (as a nn for Charles), but don’t think it goes all that well with your daughter’s names, neither does Oliver - Owen is a much better match.

Other suggestions - Rory, Reuben, Jonah, Dylan, Ezra, Kester, Kit (nn for Kester or Christopher), Aaron, Aiden, Nathan

My eldest daughter is called Charlie.

It’s great for a girl!

Nah, not Charlie. You can do better smile As PPs have said, it's just fine.

Yeah I agree just need to try and convince my OH and think of another name we both like he likes Cody but I really don't! The middle names are Michael and Edwin as that's our dads names so has to be something o go with that

No to Cody ! I don't dislike Charlie, but it has to be something you both love. I don't like Owen. I love Oliver though ! Olly is great, too.

If you don’t both love Charlie then you can’t use Charlie, it’s as simple as that really.

Mylasmummy2102 Sat 13-Feb-21 09:41:01

No he loves Charlie but I don't!

Exactly, that’s what I mean. You have to both love it, not just one of you. And if you don’t then it can’t be used.

I prefer Charlie for girls nowadays.

How about:

Edward nn Eddie
Joseph nn Joey
Zachary nn Zack
