Henry Jacob
Hugo Jacob
Harvey Jacob

DS is Edgar George. I'm a little worried about the popularity of Henry compared to Edgar. DH vetoed Hugo first pregnancy but is open to it (and leaning toward it) this time around.

WDYT?

I know both a Hugo and a Henry, cute names!

With the middle name jacob, Henry rolls off the tongue more easily but I probably prefer Hugo a little more. original.gif

Henry then Harvey. Henry is very popular though.

I have a soft spot for Harvey.

I think Hugo is fairly popular and also NMS. I would prefer Hugh, but most people don't seem to like Hugh as much.

Using the NSW baby name site it's Hugo that's on the sharpest ascent out of nowhere, even though Henry is more popular.

Love them all but then I know 3 very special boys with those names.

If pushed, would choose Hugo.

Edgar and Henry seem on par in terms of traditional older generation names and go well together. Henry Jacob flows nicely.

Harvey seems too "cool"/popular or modern compared to Edgar. IMO Harvey would flow better with a one syllable or 3+ syllable MN.

Love, love, love Hugo Jacob. Hugo and Edgar are both heard of yet not many people would know of many of each; and probably not that exact sibset!

(and love Jacob so very much that I gave that name to DS2 biggrin.gif )

Congrats and GL x

The page won't load properly on my iPad, but I take your word for it!

Not much love for Harvey it seems.

I like Harvey but Henry has more nicknames like Hal, Hank, and Harry.

I love Harvey, but I see it more as an old man name rather than modern or cool.

It is in the UK top 100 so I guess there are other people who also like it.

Me too, but it was my grandpop's (z"l) name. He was cool for a granddad... but I don't think of it as a "cool" name.
