My all time favorite boys name is [name_u]Spencer[/name_u]. Definitely support more baby Spences! 2nd would be [name_m]Henry[/name_m], then [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], and [name_m]Alfred[/name_m].

My favorite is [name_m]Alfred[/name_m], for which I love the nickname options. It’s very dignified too. Your other options suit that vibe, though [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] does feel more “modern” than the rest.

I like [name_m]Henry[/name_m] the best from your list.

[name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] are such cute names that I never tire of. I love [name_u]Alfie[/name_u] and the nickname [name_m]Harry[/name_m] too

I adore [name_m]Henry[/name_m]. [name_u]Alfie[/name_u], as a stand alone, is growing on me. [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] is an honor name I would use as a middle name. [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] is very handsome.

Thank you all!

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you think it’s better to choose a name you like (but that has no nickname options, like [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]), or choose a full/formal name you like less because it offers better nicknames? (e.g [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] and [name_m]Albert[/name_m])

100% you need to adore the name.

I love [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] from your list. I quite like [name_m]Alfred[/name_m], with the nickname [name_u]Alfie[/name_u]. I don’t dislike [name_u]Spencer[/name_u], but it isn’t really my style.

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] is my favorite from your list. Second would be [name_m]Alfred[/name_m]. I wouldn’t worry too much about a nickname, just use what you love.

I simply adore [name_m]Henry[/name_m]! It will always be one of my absolute top favorite names ever.

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] is my favourite too, and I love the association with the Arthurian legends. [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] all have a gentlemanly, vintage, classic vibe, while [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] feels more modern. [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m], [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m], or [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]/[name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] would be great combinations though! And I would definitely pick the full name you love most. Unless it’s a name like [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]/[name_u]Alex[/name_u] where the nickname is pretty much universal and inevitable, then only use it if you love the nickname too, but that’s not the case with any of these.
