Like both a lot, but Henry just edges it.

Henry is such a dweeb's name.

Whereas Edward is strong.

Definitely Edward. I find Henry a bit 'wet'

OP I prefer Henry. There’s more opportunity for shortened versions with Edward. Would that help sway your choice at all?

Edward. I haaaate Henry and can't get over its current popularity. It reminds me of someone really unappealing. (No specific person, just the image that comes to mind when I hear the name!) Edward is nice and has nice nickname options too.

Why do people feel the need to be so rude about names? Surely you can voice your preference without making unpleasant remarks about the other name?

I always think of Horrid Henry, which is awful.
Edward is awesome though.

I know a Henry that’s about a year old now and he’s the most amazing little boy.
My sons middle name is Edward and well he’s a shitbag🤣🤣🤣
I like either name but maybe Edward as Henry is making a come back.?

I love both. My nephew is called one so we'll be using the other if we have a boy next time round.

Does one go better than the other with your surname?

Edward for me.

I know it’s supposed to be very popular again but personally I only know two Henry’s. Both with brothers called Edward as it happens Grin.

There seem to be more Edward/Ted/Teddy here.
