Beau, COdy and Otis not my cup of tea.

Ooh, I love Beau. When I was pg we totally thought it was a boy and called 'him' Bo (short for Bojangles - don't ask!) all the way through. Then we got to like it so much we thought we might name him Beau. Then he turned out to be she smile.

I like Thomas, but it's in the top three names, I think, so there are lots of them around - but if that doesn't bother you then don't let it put you off...

Cody's cute - quite American, but there's nowt wrong with that. Possibly better for a baby/child than a grown man though. Same with Otis, which I do also like.

Louis and Frank not so keen.

cody is a no - its just a bit pants

frank - talk to frank - its ok

thomas - fine if a little boring

beau - what are you a movie star - only they can get away with bollocks names like this.

louis - nice

otis - nice ( but also an elevator or escalator)

I like Louis.

Not at all keen on Frank, Otis and Cody (I have seen Cody be used as a girls and boys name so might be misunderstood) and Thomas is lovely but very popular lately. Beau is OK but if you have a one syllable B surname it might sound too abrupt IYKWIM.

Beau - Not with a B after
Louis - Not my cuppa tea
Otis - I think it would be great if he is black and handsome but white and pastey may not work (sorry!)
Frank - Love it
Cody - American
Thomas - Traditional will probably be shortened to Tom at some point would you be happy with that?

Beau - Is my cats name.
Louis - Nice
Otis - Hmm nice(ish)
Frank - Not keen.
Cody - Not keen.
Thomas - Fine, slightly dull but nice all the same.

I love Louis

MadBadandDangerousToKnow Tue 16-Jun-09 20:29:32

You asked for a critique.

Beau Louis Otis - Do you mean these to be together, so that his initials are BLOB?! Anyway, the only one of these I like is Otis. Beau is off the scale of awful. Louis around here is as ubiquitous as Thomas (see below).
Frank - Yes, yes, yes but name him Francis so that he has all the options.
Cody - Never.
Thomas - Fine but so dull.

But disregard the witterings of a mad woman on t'internet.

Thomas is OK but always makes me think of tank engines and assorted friends
others not good

MadBadandDangerousToKnow Tue 16-Jun-09 20:42:45

Didn't spot that Beau, Louis and Otis aren't meant to be together. blush

ThePhantomPlopper Tue 16-Jun-09 20:50:59

LOL at blob.

Frank. I like, it's a good name. But only if your surname is not butcher (you pilchard).

The rest of the names - nah.

Cicatrice Fri 19-Jun-09 22:36:28

Louis is good also.
