Here is my list, please rank in order of preference 1-4, or rate it out of 10 grin

Monty (Montgomery)
Laurie (Laurence)
Gabriel/Gabe
Reuben

All of these go brilliantly with both our DDs full and shortened name, and our surname.

I love

Monty (Montgomery)

and

Lawrence (Lawrie)

I don't like Rueben/Reuben because it is so hard to pronounce if you're not English (and Ruebe is carrot in German grin).

Monty (Montgomery)- 7 I like it but my Dad would say, after general montgomery, very good, I have a book about him upstairs if you'd like to borrow it.
Laurie (Laurence) - 8 really cute but also classic. like it.
Gabriel/Gabe - liek it, but ....... prefer just Gabe on its own. Not Gabriel. Can you do that?
Reuben - love it... My dc1 was almost Reuben.

Oh what a mix! You have not helped at all! Well yes you have, in that no one name has been completely panned grin.

princessmel Fri 09-Oct-09 09:48:25

I don't get the builders bit!!

Not keen on any I'm afraid but I'd pick Reuben out of the 4.

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 09:48:49

Laurie 9/10
Rueben 8/10
Monty 6/10
Gabriel/cabe 0/10 Horrible name

southernbelle77 Fri 09-Oct-09 09:56:44

Monty (Montgomery) - 8/10
Laurie (Laurence) - 8/10
Gabriel/Gabe - 7/10
Reuben - 6/10

What has it got to do with the builders tho?!! That might change things!

deepdarkwood Fri 09-Oct-09 09:59:43

IN order of preference (best first):
Laurie
Monty
Gabriel
Reuben (partly because i don't think there's a good shortening)

I left MN for a while, and came back to talk about baby names, and another thread about builders.

The builders bit was a red herring really hmm grin
