Really like Peter.

MuffinMclay Tue 23-Sep-08 13:51:19

Harry (but prefer Henry or Harold)

Felix = cat
Howard sounds too 'old man'
Irrational dislike of Lucas

Lucas or Felix

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 23-Sep-08 14:29:53

Felix. Cool.

wotulookinat Tue 23-Sep-08 14:35:36

I don't like Felix, but that's because it's my brother's name and we don't get on.
I like Lucas - that was high on our list.
I really like Peter, but won't use it because it is the name of my ex.
I'm not sure about Howart, but Harold would be cool!

Any apart from Howard (which is old-fashioned without, alas, being retro cool) or Lucas (part of my aversion to surnames as first names). I reckon Peter is due for a revival, as it's fallen out of use in the last couple of decades.

only like lucas or felix. howard and harold are not my bag, and peter is forever tainted for me by various mad/creepy peters in my past.

Underused and love it.

Would have used it myself, but dh has someone in his family with that name who is not popular, so wouldn't have gone down well.

But I love it. It's classic, but not over-popular.

Felix or Lucas.

Howard is great. I have liked every Howard I have ever met.

dinkymum Tue 23-Sep-08 21:17:49

Like them all! fave probably Felix, Lucas or Harry?

Was shown round a local private school by a lovely 17 yo Felix last weekend...

singersgirl Tue 23-Sep-08 23:05:24

There was a baby Peter at the playground at the weekend; I heard his dad chatting to him. I thought what a lovely underused name it is. It is one of DS2's middle names as it is my step-dad's name.

LaDiDaDi Tue 23-Sep-08 23:23:18

Lucas or Peter

Peter, lovely name.

Lovage Wed 24-Sep-08 10:18:18

I really like Felix, but have decided not to use it for mine because it does make me think of the cat food. Sorry!

tortoiseshell Wed 24-Sep-08 10:19:44

Lucas and Felix are both very popular atm, but nice names. Harold, don't like - if you want Harry I would go for Harrison or Henry instead. Howard - hate it (sorry). Peter - good strong timeless name.

lucas is the only one I care for. Howard, and Harold I really dislike. And Peter is so 50's and bland.

Felix and Howard

Love Harry for Henry but not Harold

Peter is a bit boring IMO (apols!)

LynetteScavo Wed 24-Sep-08 20:59:51

I love, love, love Lucas! And Howard or Howie, and Felix.

Booo to Harold and Peter, though.
