We're expecting a boy at the end of October and have managed to narrow our name choice down to our two current favourites: Quentin and Hugo.

Our dd is Annabel.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Both nice, although I prefer Quentin.

They both go with Annabel but, as names, I don't like either of them.

They're both lovely and posh.

I think I'd prob go for Hugo.

Both lovely names that go well with Annabel.

If I had to choose I'd say Quentin, because I know a gorgeous 3 year old.

I love Hugo.

We'd have called Ds it if we'd not already used it for the Dog !

I don't really like Quentin.

What about Rory ?

I like them both but prefer Hugh to Hugo (aware that's not your choice though).

Go for Quentin.

Quentin is nice.

Hugo isn't imho,and makes me think of the dim one from Vicar Of Dibley.

Quentin if you want him to be a homosexual, Hugo if you want him to be a Savills estate agent.

Hugo is lovely

AitchTwoOh Wed 24-Jun-09 11:28:01

lol swedes. they really are pretty ghastly names, imo. toffee-nosed and trying hard. as it happens, the only quentin i know is gay, struggled with his name and his sexuality for years. nice guy, though. the one hugo i know is a nob.

AItch - grin They go quite nicely with Annabel in all fairness.

I like both names. Quentin is VERY popular in France (was in top 10 for years) and Hugo is becoming quite popular.

My 12 year old nephew is Quentin - he loves his name (and we don't think he's gay smile), but I actually wouldn't mind if he was!

ninedragons Wed 24-Jun-09 11:38:58

Hugo. Quentin is a wee bit wet.

AitchTwoOh Wed 24-Jun-09 11:40:05

kontan and oogo are quite different, i think, so france not admissable as evidence. annabel's a nice name, in a princessy sort of way, what's wrong with Jamie if you insist on going for a posho boy thing?

AitchTwoOh Wed 24-Jun-09 11:40:46

ot tristan? at least he was a vet.

Thank you all for your comments, both positive and negative smile

We are a German/French family (me German, dh French) and happen to like Quentin and Hugo as names. We don't really 'get' the class issue here in the UK and I'm not sure how 'posh' we are - I'd like to think verygrin.

I am a little shocked at some of your comments about names making someone homosexual - surely you don't believe that ?!!

Anyway thanks for your comments so far.

Annabelsmummie Wed 24-Jun-09 11:52:50

Sorry, just missed the latest comments.

Don't really like Horatio and Eugene and don't think they sound nice in German and French.... And never heard of St John - is that a name???
