following my boys name post (charlie, arthur, harry, edward, henry) can anyone suggest any good names that are classic and traditional but not as well used?

How about Andrew or Stuart?

FWIW, I don't think Arthur is that popular. Harry, Henry, George, Edward slightly more so (but still not millions of them). I do know about 5 Charlie's though.

I thought about Andrew but apparently men named andrew are far less likely to have a date!

Jake?

Frederick
William
Stanley
Matthew
James
Thomas

All suitable for shortening at a later date as well if so required grin

I have a Henry and have not come across any other small Henrys myself. i didn't think it was that popular. Harry on the other hand is. Arthur and edward aren't that common Imo- but cHarlie is!

I know quite a few Henrys and Harrys.

Didn't know Arthur was popular.

From your list I would say that only Charlie and Harry are very popular.

Hullygully Thu 22-Oct-09 16:51:48

Edgar is a superb name.

Charile and Harry monstrously popular.

Hullygully Thu 22-Oct-09 16:52:12

Actually, Charile is relatively unused.

Jamieandhismagictorch Thu 22-Oct-09 17:33:01

Hully grin

I have a Charlie, and whilst it suits him, if i had known how popular it was going to get, I might not have used it (I think Charlie and Lola, and the newer Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Film are to blame ......)

Hullygully Thu 22-Oct-09 17:34:46

Jamie - Yes, it's a really nice name but there are millions (I have an Issy, and when we chose it there were none. There are three in her class alone now...).

Go with Edward.

I don't think it's that common/popular.

I don't think it's that popular yet, although I know 2 under 3yrs, so may be getting more popular.
