Hi, I've already chosen Albert as a middle name after my grandad but we can't think of a first name that goes with it.We both like Alex but is that too many ALs?

Depends on your surname tbh

James is excellent though - I think either one syllable or three would be good with ALbert


Alex is too many 'Al's, you're quite right

The poor child's surname will be Goosey!!

MrsBadger Wed 19-Aug-09 08:57:31

oh dear grin
well there are worse things

I was thinkign more of length than of anything else - 'Jack Stone' is a bit abrupt and 'Christopher Fotherinton-Thomas' is a bit of a mouthful, but Goosey is fine with long or short names.

just don't let him marry anyone called Lucy...

Alexander Albert sounds fine to me.

Lovely name.

William Albert Goosey.

with * Albert Goosey you're going to have to be careful with initials if that bothers you.

I like James Albert Goosey.

I think Alexander Albert sounds just fine and it works smile.

Might be too many 'AL's' if your surname begins with the same letters.

Alexander, and "Alex" for short.

thirtysomething Wed 19-Aug-09 10:02:20

Alex sounds great - goes with surname and really how many times do you need to say the whole name anyway?

Would also work:
William (though the initials would be WAG!)

Nothing beginning with "F" obviously.....

SoupDragon Wed 19-Aug-09 21:13:59

Not convinced about A Goosey. I used to work with A Chicken, and I'm not a farmer.

Tidey Wed 19-Aug-09 21:21:49

Sag, Wag, Fag, Tag... basically it's going to spell something pronounceable unless the first name also starts with a vowel. But I don't know whether that bothers you.

I think Alexander Albert sounds okay anyway.

I like

Quentin Albert Goosey


Oscar Albert Goosey

also the initials don't mean anything obviously teaseworthy...

I like


best with Albert as second name.

I would avoid Luke and Lucas, Louis and Lewis, (same problem as Lucy...) and the initial A isn't great with the surname either. I like Patrick, Oliver, Henry, Sam and Peter.

Think that Alexander Albert Goosey sounds lovely.

I would be wary of too many Al's if Al was the beginning of his last name, but with a middle name it sounds lovely.

Ineedsomesleep Fri 21-Aug-09 08:58:56

Sorry about that, too much use of lovely I know.

I'll get me coat before the MN police turn up.
