Wilf and
Herbie, Doug, Otis or Bruno. I love Casper but I'm not feeling it with Wilf

alexio · 03/04/2022 23:44

Franklin or Solomon for me

Babadook76 · 03/04/2022 23:45

Any of them are a massive preference to wilf

ShesThunderstorms · 03/04/2022 23:48

My DS was very nearly Wilf, love it. I also loved Otis, so that's got my vote.

DramaAlpaca · 04/04/2022 00:09

We don't have the same taste in names, but I do like Otis and it goes surprisingly well with Wilf.

Mumofgirls2017 · 04/04/2022 05:17

Otis or Caspar

Herbie Doug and Frankie go well with Wilf also

bloominglovelyorange · 04/04/2022 08:25

Herbie or Otis
Lovely names

17caterpillars1mouse · 04/04/2022 09:36

Herbie (bc Herbert) - Herbie is kind of cute but I don't think I'd want to be called Herbie or Herbert. I think you'd have to be an overly confident person to pull off Herbie

Frankie (bc Franklin) - I'm not a fan personally

Doug (bc Douglas) - it's ok

Bruno - I quite like but ATM everybody will just sing 'we don't talk about bruno' at him

Otis - my favourite from your list
Caspar - not a fan

Solomon - I like it, my second favourite from your list

Rrrob · 04/04/2022 09:40

I have an Otis but don’t think it goes with Wilf. I like everything from your list apart from Solomon.

inmyslippers · 04/04/2022 09:41

I love your name choices but Otis just pips it for me

Greatoutdoors · 04/04/2022 09:41

I like Dougie

helpmum2003 · 04/04/2022 09:42

Otis or Caspar. I don't like the others.

LeftieLucy · 04/04/2022 09:42

Doug/ie would be my pick from your list, but I think you should call him Stanley

LittleBird4 · 04/04/2022 09:43

I like Caspar

GigglingPinkGiraffe · 04/04/2022 09:43

Herbie, Doug or Caspar are nice.

At the moment the Encanto song puts me off Bruno.

Soringhaze · 04/04/2022 09:48

Otis of Franklin but Franklin is my fave

PurBal · 04/04/2022 09:50


Fl0w3ry · 04/04/2022 10:12

I like Frankie the most from your list.

cupcakedestroyer · 05/04/2022 12:11

Otis or Solomon

VickerishAllsort · 05/04/2022 13:11

Does it matter whether names "go with" each other?
You're naming people who will grow to be separate individuals with different personalities, not a pair of matching garden gnomes.

JessyCarr · 05/04/2022 19:49

Bruno or Caspar

saritapdot · 05/04/2022 19:50

Caspar nn Cass

BlueFlavour · 05/04/2022 19:50

Otis or Solomon

Theforest · 05/04/2022 19:52

I like Bruno a lot

Franklin/Frankie is good too

UsernameIsHarderThanBabyName · 06/04/2022 08:37

Love Herbie

Also like Solomon
