Hello smile

What do you think of the name Errol? We like old fashioned but not common names. Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks smile

I think the Flynn association remains strong. Are you OK with that?

(Or perhaps Hot Chocolate?)

I think it looks better spelled Errol (not Erol).

I think we're ok with that smile

Awful, unless you already have a Winston or a Shanice. In which case it would fit right in.

The baby names board is better for this but people are BRUTAL be warned! Search for the 'middle name for Plato' thread. So funny lol
