Baby due after Xmas, but is he a Dexter or a Casper? Surname begins with C, brother to Charlie.

I love both

I’d pick Casper because I think Charlie and Casper sound amazing together especially with C surname 😎 please pick Casper

What nicknames do you think Casper will have?

It's always such a popular name on mumsnet but I've never met a Casper in real life Grin

I prefer Casper but I'm not sure about two family members having the same initials. Could get very confusing with banks, schools, etc.

I’ll just counter that by saying yes 10 years ago the same initials could have been confusing and maybe there will be the very rare mix up with the post, but so much is online now that I think it’ll become increasingly strange to the next generation that we ever based their initial on a worry about “post”. What even comes in the post even now let alone in 15 years when children are receiving own post. My bank and phone bill no longer get sent in the post and my doctors surgery has just gone digital and I get blood test results online never in post. I get HMRC letters in post but that always uses my whole first name and not just initial

Both dog names, sorry

Caspian? That's nice, and not too doggy.

Dickon?

Don't go for an alliterative name! Got to be Dexter.

Dexter.
Receiving post addressed to Mr C Surname could be to either. When they get older they may want some privacy when it comes to opening post.

Oh I don’t know. They’re both gorgeous.
When you say after Christmas. Do you mean after Christmas Day or after 5 January. If he’s born within the 12 days of Christmas. I’d go with Casper. He was one of the 3 kings. If he’s born after go with Dexter.

I prefer Caspar. Both work well as Charlie's brother though.

Caspar doesn't need a nickname but possibilities are Cas, Cap, Kip. (I love Kip).

Love Casper with Charlie.

Nicknames I've heard include Cap, Cas, Caspie or Cappy. Could also go with Perry, perhaps?

Congratulations!

I don't like either sorry. But do like an alliterative name!
Casper is a pet name to me.

I really don't like Casper, he'll always be the friendly ghost to me!

I love Dexter, though! It was in our list when we had DS.
