Name Guessing Challenge!

Some acquaintances of mine are having a baby boy. They have chosen his name but not yet announced it, and are allowing us all to guess for a prize of… well, bragging rights. It’s a fun challenge!

They already have a son named [name_m]Charles[/name_m], called [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]. But they never ever call him [name_m]Chuck[/name_m].
The name fits with the same era and style as [name_m]Charles[/name_m].
They are not repeating any initial in their family, so nothing starting with an A, G, or C.
Last name starts with R, is 3 syllables, and rather confusing to pronounce.
They like nicknames, but even the nickname should have a certain conservative classic tone.
His middle name will be [name_u]James[/name_u].

As of right now my guess is [name_m]William[/name_m] nn [name_m]Will[/name_m]. What do you think?

[name_m]Robert[/name_m] ([name_u]Bobby[/name_u])
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m] ([name_m]Tommy[/name_m])
[name_m]Edward[/name_m] ([name_m]Eddy[/name_m])
[name_m]Ronald[/name_m] ([name_u]Ronnie[/name_u])
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] ([name_u]Sammy[/name_u]/[name_u]Sam[/name_u])
[name_m]Daniel[/name_m] ([name_u]Danny[/name_u])

[name_m]Louis[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Louie[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Artie[/name_m]
[name_m]Edwin[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Eddie[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] nickname [name_u]Theo[/name_u]
[name_m]Peter[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Pete[/name_m]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] nickname [name_u]Freddie[/name_u]
[name_m]Montgomery[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Monty[/name_m]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Harry[/name_m]

Update: It isn’t [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], or [name_m]Henry[/name_m]. Darn.

I think [name_m]Edward[/name_m] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] are totally great ideas! [name_m]Eddie[/name_m], [name_u]Theo[/name_u], [name_u]Teddy[/name_u], etc. I will tell them your suggestions and see if one is right :slight_smile:

Ohh this is fun! :slight_smile:
