Any opinions? Am too tired to be slated if you hate them all! I think we might chicken out and do Diggory as a second name, but dh loves the nn Digger and we know a Diggory, so it probably seems less unusual to us than it might do to others!

I like kit. I imagine kit to be the sporty type.

LOVE Kit and Wilfred (esp. nn Wilf!!) but Diggory doesn't really so it for me.

Kit is lovely and Diggory is a character from one of the C.S. Lewis books (Magician's Nephew perhaps) so it has lovely connotations for me smile

I like Kit a lot... But I think it takes a real personality to pull it off. I'd play safe and go with Christopher on the BC, just in case.

Congratulatons flowers, love his name, I may be slightly biased but I do love the nn Wilf and Wilfred goes beautifully with Kit, top name smile

Oh, just saw you've chosen. Love Wilfred Kit. What are your other DC called?

ArabellaBeaumaris Mon 29-Jul-13 06:32:36

I like all 3 names although they are not my style. I think I'd go for

1. Wilfred
2. Diggory
3. Kit

Thanks all! He is Wilfred Kit and we are v happy with it... If Diggory goes in at all, it will be as a third name!!!.
Thanks for the congratulations message Jamie Xx

I like Wilfred best.

She didn't say she wanted you to like all three. She wanted you to like at least one of them ("those who like one/all of them") and not to be actively rude about any of them you don't like ("it is just as easy to say 'I like x and y, but not keen on z' and it has just as much impact, without hurting anyone's feelings.").

I do wish posters on Baby Names would remember that as well as the OP on a thread, who hasn't yet named her child any of the names, their posts are quite likely to be read by people whose own DC have those names already. I'm quite happy for people to post that they "don't like" any of my DCs names, or that they are "old fashioned" or "trendy", but posting that they are "awful" or "yuk!" or "terrible" or "the worst name ever on this board" is just rude.

(None of mine has any of these particular names, by the way. But DD1's name has been slated quite viciously in the past, although oddly enough every time I see it mentioned on the board now it's with people saying how nice it is. Maybe I was just ahead of the curve...)

Congratulations on your baby.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sat 27-Jul-13 08:16:34

Sorry to offend.

I like kit, wilfred is ok, but i didn't realise you wanted us to like all 3! I though it was a choice.

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 27-Jul-13 07:07:40

I really like Wilfred such a cool name, kit is sweet is its a nn for Christopher.

Layl77 Sat 27-Jul-13 07:01:39
