Oldie Rankings

Rank these old fashioned boys names and give any feedback you’d like! :slight_smile:


[name_m]Gilbert[/name_m] - I love [name_m]Gil[/name_m] :slight_smile: I do like this name, though it does have a dorky side to it. I like [name_m]Gilead[/name_m] actually, maybe a little better.
[name_m]George[/name_m] - I’ve never liked this name. I know it’s rising, but it’s not my thing
[name_m]Earnest[/name_m] - I prefer [name_m]Ernest[/name_m]. I like the virtue feel, but I grew up with all the [name_m]Ernest[/name_m] goes to ____ movies, so it’s another one that feels dorky
[name_m]Thatcher[/name_m] - even if this has a history of use, it doesn’t feel like an “oldie” at all.
[name_m]Hubert[/name_m] - [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] I like. [name_m]Hubert[/name_m] I don’t at all.
[name_m]Clyde[/name_m] - I don’t like it. Too horsey. I like [name_m]Clay[/name_m] and [name_m]Cole[/name_m] and [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] though
[name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] - I really love this name. I want to meet a [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] so bad!
[name_m]Walter[/name_m] - it’s okay. I don’t mind it. It’s cute on a little boy I think, especially nn [name_u]Wally[/name_u].
[name_u]Gus[/name_u] - my car’s name :slight_smile: I love it!
[name_m]Edgar[/name_m] - I like it a lot. I’m not super fond of any of the [name_m]Ed[/name_m]- names, but this is my favorite of the lot.
[name_u]Stanley[/name_u] - I’ve known 2 guys in my life named [name_m]Stan[/name_m]/[name_u]Stanley[/name_u] and they were both awesome guys! but…I still can’t make myself like it. I should, but I just don’t
[name_u]Sheldon[/name_u] - nope sorry, love the BBT character, but not the name.
[name_m]Wilbur[/name_m] - no. There are a ton of awesome [name_m]Wil[/name_m] names and I don’t feel like this is one of them.
[name_m]Clifford[/name_m] - the big red dog is adorable, but I don’t like the name. I’ve known a few who put me off the name.
[name_m]Ralph[/name_m] - barf. nuff said
[name_m]Harold[/name_m] - I know one who goes by [name_m]Hal[/name_m]. It’s okay, but I don’t like it
[name_m]Linus[/name_m] - sorry, it’ll always be a whimpy/teary/snotty little boy from Peanuts to me
[name_m]Albert[/name_m] - okay. I like [name_m]Albie[/name_m]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] - meh. I hate [name_m]Fred[/name_m]. [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] is okay.
[name_m]Richard[/name_m] - meh, I’ve known too many creepy [name_m]Richard[/name_m]'s to ever like this name

[name_m]Thatcher[/name_m] is cute!
