Otis or Herbie. Herbie is adorable. I also quite like the vibe if Bruno though. Im not much help sorry ๐Ÿ˜‚

@amelia6543 Remy! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Herbie or Remy

TempsPerdu · 16/02/2023 23:16

Rufus is definitely my favourite of those. Runners up would be Otis, Bruno or Herbie, and I really dislike the others, especially Frank.

Coxspurplepippin · 16/02/2023 23:20

Rufus or Wilfred.
Herbie is ok for a baby/toddler but not for an adult.

As long as it is not what my nephew called his baby boy you will be is Parker.

BeaLola · 16/02/2023 23:27

Of your list Rufus

How about Barney or Barnaby

MikeLitoriss · 16/02/2023 23:30

Rufus from your list!

We dont talk about Bruno...

NotABeliever · 16/02/2023 23:35

Only Rufus from your list

CoffeeAndCreativity · 16/02/2023 23:37

I love both Otis and Herbie!

EyesOnThePies · 16/02/2023 23:38

All good, but not sure about Herbie for a teen. Might need a not-nickname (not Herbert!) as an alternative.

Like what though?

DramaAlpaca · 17/02/2023 00:09

Otis or Rufus.

Strongly dislike the rest.

Judgyjudgy · 17/02/2023 00:15

Sorry they all sound like names for a dog ๐Ÿ˜

Herbie and Frank are cute. I know lots of Rufus's so I'd be put off by that. I like Ralph (pronounced the English way Rafe) too

JupiterFortified · 17/02/2023 00:30

Rufus - a bit pretentious. Probably ok if heโ€™ll be going to a private school though.
Otis - nice.
Wilfred - reminds me of an old man.
Bruno - reminds me of Frank/HP sauce.
Remy - reminds me of remy Martin.
Frank - my favourite: Frank/Frankie.
Herbie - absolutely not. Reminds me of Herbie the love bug.

Wetblanket78 · 17/02/2023 00:49

Only like Rufus from your list.

PremiumB · 17/02/2023 00:51

Iโ€™d probably go for Wilfred but not that sure

Rufus, Wilfred, and Remy are nice.

cutiemcsweetie · 17/02/2023 02:52

Frank. All the others sound like dog names or wont carry well as an adult.
