and we named him Hector!

I need your help deciding on his middle name. It's between Hector Aldous (what I announced his name as when born) or Hector George.

I'm wobbling on Aldous as I was feel slightly embarrassed when people ask his middle name. It feels a bit wanky!
George is a name we agree on and it seems to suit and sit well with Hector.
Thoughts?

flowers Congratulations! flowers

I like both,go with your gut wink

Congratulations!

Hector George is lovely. I would go with that.

I love Hector Aldous.

Hector George is lovely.
I like the name Aldous but the two together sound a bit of a mouthful or like the names merge together.

Congratulations btw!

Fabulous name! I would go with Hector George. My DS is a George and I love the name Hector. I think the simplicity of George works with Hector. Aldous is a bit too much, in my humble opinion. Although, to be fair, you never use the middle name anyway, and you have chosen an excellent first name. Little Hector!

They're both great names! Sorry that doesn't help though!

Depending on your surname, Hector George might be a safer bet initials-wise. Go with your gut feeling.

I'm afraid you're right Aldous does sound wanky. Go with George.

Frikadellen Thu 24-Oct-13 16:23:43

OH I LOVE LOVE Hector. like both mns sorry

Either is lovely (unhelpful I know!)

George is probably a bit easier for a child to tell people (when they have the "what's your middle name" discussion).

Hector George

What letter does his surname start with ? You don't want to call him HAM or HAG or even HAT. HAL would be quite nice though...

Footle Thu 24-Oct-13 23:19:42

Oops sorry, thought you had Aldous in there not George. Ignore me.

Hector George Pygmy grin is sublime

Aldous detracts from the wonder of Hector.

bundaberg Thu 24-Oct-13 23:29:54

I would go with Hector Aldous

Hector Aldous is fab. Here in Ireland , we have a Hector doing the main morning radio programme kids listen to on the way to school, so it isn't as unusual. It's a great name. Congrats on your lovely boy!

I like Hector George.

Congratulations!

I like Hector George. Hector Aldous sounds like Hect Raldous

Congratulations! flowers

Hector is fab. Aldous is fab, but together they do register on my wankometer.

I also think Hector George runs together better than two vowel sounds colliding.

If you're embarrassed saying it to people then IMO it's the wrong name.

George. Born in the same year as the future king is a nice connection too.

Congratulations thanks

Hector Hugo and Hector Otto are now in the running. Also like Hector Edward and Hector Edgar, but the flow's not quite right.
