We are struggling to decide on a boy's name. I like old-fashioned baby names...but they have to feel fresh and not too old-man if you know what I mean.
Big sister is called Agnes. Which one of these baby boy names do you think go with her name?
Old-fashioned boy names that work today!

Otto - awful
August - don't know how to say it, don't like matching initials
Edmund (Eddie) - ok, also like Edwin and Edgar
Rufus - not sure
Bernhard (Barney) - Bernard is better but Barnaby is great
Timothy (Timo) - Timothy is nice. Timo - Teemo or Timmo?

Otto - I just picture a tiny baby that looks like Bismarck. Not keen.
August - I quite like this one although have a feeling it's become a bit trendy, if that bothers you
Edmund (Eddie) - I like this one. Much prefer Eddie to all the Teddies going about these days
Rufus - I do think of it as a dog's name. Although Rufus Wainwright has managed well,
Bernhard (Barney) - oh no, don't like this at all
Timothy (Timo) - another big nope. such a weedy name.
