Warren or Wallace

Exactly what the title says. Which one do you prefer? [name_m]Warren[/name_m] or [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]?

[name_u]Wallace[/name_u] [name_m]Keith[/name_m] or [name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_m]Keith[/name_m]?

Im falling for [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]. But people say that it sounds like a cartoon.
[name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_m]Keith[/name_m] is a family name. But people say it sounds like “war and peace”

I adore [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]. It was on our top 5. It is so underused. It reminds me of [name_m]William[/name_m] [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]. [name_m]Warren[/name_m] is okay but doesn’t have the same sparkle to me.

[name_u]Wallace[/name_u]! It’s much more distinguished than [name_m]Warren[/name_m].

[name_u]Wallace[/name_u] would be fine in the middle. I would be worried about the nickname [name_u]Wally[/name_u]. It does sound cartoonish. Why not go with [name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]? I think that sounds handsome.

I have [name_m]David[/name_m] on my list, I hate the nicknames [name_m]Dave[/name_m] and [name_m]Davey[/name_m], so Id enforce him being called [name_m]David[/name_m]. If someone called him [name_m]Dave[/name_m], “excuse me, its [name_m]David[/name_m]” Same with [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]. His name is [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] not [name_u]Wally[/name_u].

And I really didnt think [name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] sounds good. The “wa” sound at the beginning.

I prefer [name_m]Warren[/name_m].

[name_m]Warren[/name_m] is nice, but I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_u]Wallace[/name_u]. So handsome.

I’ve always had a soft spot for [name_m]Warren[/name_m], it’s cute on a boy and handsome on a man. [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] is a bit too old-fashioned for my tastes, and the nn [name_u]Wally[/name_u] isn’t exactly endearing (it might be a regional thing, but it’s slang for a silly person where I’m from). I know you say you don’t want to use it, but playground teasing might be a different matter.

[name_u]WALLACE[/name_u]! For sure!

Neither name is a fave of mine but [name_m]Warren[/name_m] has the edge. For me, the names give off completely different images. [name_m]Warren[/name_m] just sounds more friendly, approachable guy-next-door. [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] sounds like a crusty ill-tempered old miser you would rather not have for a neighbour. [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] may end up being called “[name_u]Wally[/name_u]” and that’s a term for a fool or awkward person. Since we don’t use our mn’s very often, [name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_m]Keith[/name_m] sounding like “war and peace” isn’t really a big issue.

[name_f]My[/name_f] brother is named [name_m]Daniel[/name_m] and my mother hates [name_m]Dan[/name_m] and [name_u]Danny[/name_u].
[name_m]David[/name_m] is nice. I much prefer the full name to [name_m]Dave[/name_m] and [name_m]Davey[/name_m] as well.
I don’t mind the double wa in [name_m]Warren[/name_m] [name_u]Wallace[/name_u] at all. I suppose it depends on your last name.
[name_u]Wallace[/name_u] reminds me of [name_f]Veronica[/name_f] [name_m]Mars[/name_m]’ friend, so that’s cool. I just prefer [name_m]Warren[/name_m]. I have known two Warrens.
