[name_m]Hugo[/name_m] feels slightly more posh, only because [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] is so popular and used

I agree exactly. I’ve seen quite a few [name_m]Oliver[/name_m]'s [name_m]IRL[/name_m] and in the media, I only recall [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] from that one large book with the key and robot.

I voted for [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] since it’s less popular, but I don’t really see either of these as being pretentious names. [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] is super popular so could belong to anyone, and to me [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] has a traditional, country gentleman vibe.

I love both but [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] I could imagine on a more upper-crust family. [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] is popular no matter what class you are though; and has been used amongst some aristocratic families too, but since it’s more popular than [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] and the only young [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] I’ve met so far comes from quite an upper middle-class family, I’d say [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] is the “poshest” sounding of the two in general.

[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] has become so popular that [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] is definitely the more “posh” choice – at least in the US where [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] is pretty rare.

I dont associate either with being more posh. They’re both versatile names
