Please can you tell me which name you prefer between Henry and Toby (not Tobias, just Toby). Not bothered about which is more popular, just which is nicer. Thank you :-)

Toby. But both are good names. You could use Henry as middle name, Toby Henry Blah. Nice.

Henry. Toby is slang for a penis where I’m from!

Henry but I like both. “Tobes” nickname is what would put me off Toby.

Henry but I do quite like Toby as well

Both nice, I prefer Toby.

Toby, but also like Henry.

Henry for me - Toby is more of a little boy name to me.

Toby, I love it but was vetoed by DH. Similarly I'm not keen on Tobias; Toby is great in its own right.

Henry is lovely, if you aren't bothered about popularity. Although I realise Toby is often used as a standalone name, I find it more cutesy sounding (except as a nn for Tobias).
