How old are you looking for?

yorkshirepudsx · 11/01/2023 17:53

Just to add! My first son is called Alfie, not Alfred, just Alfie 🙈 so I'm looking for something that will sound nice with that, for his little brother 💙

No that makes sense. I just didn't want to give you names from the medieval period when you only wanted Grandad names 😆

My family tree has the following:

Harold
John
Gordon
Edmund
Geoffrey
Peter
Thomas
Zechariah

A few others with very old roots that are still used today:

Dunstan
Hugh
Jocelyn

Both oldies but goodies from 1066. Still in use today as I understand. Might make a nice sibset.

We have a Hughie where I work which I think is really cute. His brother is Bernie.
