Name for Boy #2

I am looking for a baby name to go well with [name]Charlie[/name] ([name]Charles[/name] is his full name) for our second boy. I considered [name]Henry[/name] for a long time, and [name]LOVE[/name] it, but it is crazy how many people I know who are naming their baby [name]Henry[/name], so I’ve ruled it out. I like really like traditional, timeless names for boys. Here are the names that we are considering, any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. [name]Jerry[/name] ([name]Gerald[/name])
  2. [name]Sam[/name] ([name]Samuel[/name])
  3. [name]Augie[/name]/[name]Gus[/name] ([name]Augustus[/name])

I am not sure if [name]Jerry[/name] is too random, or just random enough! And, I am starting to think that [name]Sam[/name] and [name]August[/name] are too common!! Thanks in advance!

[name]Jerry[/name] ([name]Gerald[/name]) - I’m not that fond of this one; [name]Jerry[/name] seems dated, and not as classic as [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Charles[/name].
[name]Sam[/name] ([name]Samuel[/name]) - I love, and I don’t think it is too popular at all, considering what a classic it is.
[name]Augie[/name]/[name]Gus[/name] ([name]Augustus[/name]) - [name]Augie[/name] reminds me of orgy … also, I personally can’t get over the [name]Augustus[/name] Gloop association, but I know a lot of people like this name. It is a bit more flamboyant than [name]Charles[/name], though …

Also, how about :

Good luck!

Thanks! I have the same fears about [name]Jerry[/name]!! Hadn’t thought about what you said about [name]Augie[/name], so I really appreciate it. Also, thanks for sending suggestions. Two boys is way too hard!!

I love the name [name]Charles[/name]! :slight_smile:

  1. [name]Jerry[/name] ([name]Gerald[/name]): This one feels dated to me, but I do love your other ideas!
  2. [name]Sam[/name] ([name]Samuel[/name]): I think [name]Samuel[/name] is great! (It’s popular though…)
  3. [name]Augie[/name]/[name]Gus[/name] ([name]Augustus[/name]): I love this! I’m more of an [name]Augustin[/name] fan (one of my favorites), only because of [name]Augustus[/name] Gloop in [name]Charlie[/name] and the Chocolate Factory. Wait! Because of [name]Charlie[/name] and the Chocolate Factory, with [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Augustus[/name] Gloop, I wouldn’t use this name.

From your list, I’d go with [name]Samuel[/name]. :slight_smile:

Some more with [name]Charles[/name]:

[name]Atticus[/name] (no good nicknames, though)
[name]Alfred[/name] ([name]Freddie[/name] or [name]Alfie[/name])
[name]Albert[/name] (nn [name]Albie[/name])
[name]Louis[/name] (nn [name]Louie[/name])

I love the [name]Theodore[/name] suggestion (was it Twinkle?) with [name]Charlie[/name]!

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

Excellent point about [name]Charlie[/name] and the Chocolate Factoty!! Thanks for your other suggestions

I like [name]Samuel[/name] and love [name]Henry[/name] too. I agree with the others about [name]Augustus[/name] reminding of them of [name]Augustus[/name] Gloop. Ha! I prefer [name]August[/name]. I don’t think it’s too popular and it’s definitely not as common as [name]Samuel[/name]. I don’t think [name]Jerry[/name] fits in with these names, it seems more dated.
If you think [name]Samuel[/name] is too common how about [name]Simon[/name] or [name]Solomon[/name]?

[name]Love[/name] [name]Charles[/name] nn [name]Charlie[/name]! [name]Love[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] and [name]Samson[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]August[/name] way more than [name]Augustus[/name]. [name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Jerry[/name] at all! Sorry!
With [name]Charles[/name] nn [name]Charlie[/name], I love:
[name]Edward[/name] - great with [name]Charles[/name]!
[name]Frederick[/name], as a middle name.
[name]Harrison[/name] nn [name]Harry[/name]
[name]Julius[/name] nn [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Lionel[/name] - love so much with [name]Charles[/name]! NN [name]Leo[/name].
[name]Nicholas[/name] nn [name]Nico[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Teddy[/name], then when he gets older, [name]Ted[/name] or he could be a [name]Theo[/name].
[name]William[/name] nn [name]Will[/name]

I agree on the popularity of [name]Sam[/name] and [name]August[/name] it seems to be everyone’s favourite now.

I like the idea of [name]Jerry[/name] but would prefer [name]Jeremy[/name] or [name]Jerome[/name] and think the nn of [name]Jair[/name] would be more interesting than [name]Jerry[/name]

[name]Charles[/name] and [name]Jeremy[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] and [name]Jerome[/name] It has some punch don’t you think?

I love the name [name]Charles[/name] kudos to you for choosing such a lovely name.

I know of brothers [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Beau[/name].

I love the suggestion of [name]Jerome[/name] above! And also really like [name]Samuel[/name] and [name]Augustus[/name]/[name]August[/name] (but agree about the [name]Charlie[/name] and the Chocolate Factory connection).

[name]William[/name] (nn [name]Will[/name] or [name]Liam[/name])

[name]Love[/name] the name [name]Charlie[/name]!

I agree with the rest, [name]Jerry[/name] seems dated, [name]Samuel[/name] is a great name and I think [name]August[/name] rather than [name]Augustus[/name] is very handsome!

From your list I prefer [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Samuel[/name].

From the suggestions, I think [name]Edward[/name] nn [name]Ward[/name] is fantastic with big brother [name]Charlie[/name]!!

You have been given a lot of great suggestions! I think that [name]Charles[/name] and [name]Samuel[/name] are great names together. [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Sam[/name], love it.

I too think [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Sam[/name] sound so adorable together! Great sibling names!

I love [name]Colin[/name], [name]Julian[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Nicholas[/name] and [name]Thomas[/name] with [name]Charlie[/name] (which i also love BTW)!
