i don't like either of them.

I do think these names will both date quite badly, if that’s a concern for you. They are very ‘now’.

I used to like River but it does just sound a bit trying to be trendy. Arlo is probably my preference but it’s suddenly very popular and I wouldn’t be surprised if it reaches the top 10.

Arlo is fine

River is really naff

They are both overused - Arlo has been very popular for longer, but for this age group I’m guessing River will be even more so

Ivo
Jethro
Amos
Arnold nn Arnie
Kester
Ronan

might be others

River. Too many arlo's around and think it will date

You don’t think River will date?!

They both will - because they’ve become very popular very fast, names like that almost always rapidly fall

I think they’re both the Barry/Roger/Colin of the future - ie they’re very Now so will date. But if I had to pick one, Arlo.
