You've got a safe win there.  Frederick is fantastic and both MNs go well.

I'll go George so my vote is valid. original.gif

I would go Frederick William.

I actually really like the name George, but I think William sounds better with Frederick.

I vote Frederick William, but only because I would hate to waste George on a middle name.  George is definitely first name material for me.

Of course, if you changed your mind and considered George Frederick then that combination would get my best vote.

I vote George... Why? I just can't put the initials F & W together.

Depends on how many syllables your surname has..

If you have a short surname then William

If you have a long one then George.

#17 kerilyntaryn

Posted 14 January 2013 - 06:39 AM

countrymel - surname is 3 syllables

Another vote here for Frederick William.

George, because it is a little more unusual

#21 fifi-trixibelle

Posted 14 January 2013 - 07:13 AM

I don't really like either more than the other, both are ok. I think with the M surname George would be my pick though.

#22 Maserati Mum

Posted 14 January 2013 - 04:15 PM

Hmmmm.... I'm still undecided!

I like how William sounds with Frederick but with our long(ish) surname I think George is lovely.

#23 Tyfle Hour

Posted 14 January 2013 - 04:20 PM

I'd go Frederick William, not that much of a George fan.

#24 eigne

Posted 14 January 2013 - 04:31 PM

Frederick George because the surname has 3 syllables and I think your alternate suggestion is slightly more of a mouthful wink.gif

Love both combos though.

Frederick George.

Both great names though original.gif
