Hoping for some opinions on names for our baby boy who is due next week. Our surname is Billingham and we have shortlist of...
Harry Billingham - just think it sounds nice, but worried it's too popular and we'll regret it if there are loads of other Harry's in his class at school
Frank Billingham - Frank was my grandad's name and have always thought it was quite cool because it is not very popular and thought Frankie might be nice as a nickname when he's little. But now am concerned it might be too unpopular and is not popular cos people don't like it (you can tell I've been thinking about this way too much!! Not good with late pregnancy hormones!!)
Edward Billingham - Like the variety of nicknames that come with it, Ed, Eddie, Ned, Ted etc and think Eddie Billingham sounds good, but would put Edward on his birth certificate
Great names. Only problem with Edward is the transition between 'd' and 'b' to your surname, which I think feels slightly sticky. Harry or Frank are both great. (round our way I only know one Harry and he is a few years into primary school).
