What are your opinions on the following boys name combo's
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:23 AM
I love Otto! Not sure about Maximillian though, bit of a mouthful. We have Otto on our list with Leonard as a mn.
Otto Leonard. Leonard is a family name. Are your mn's family names?
I think th other three all work nicely, I think choose your favorite first name and go with that!

Hugh Zachariah - it's nice. I'm not crazy about Zachariah
Declan Thomas - both nice names, think I would prefer Thomas Declan
William Theodore - easily the best of the bunch, I love this.
Otto Maximillian - very cool. has a slightly different feel to William Theodore, but I still like it.

Hugh Zachariah - LOVE
Declan Thomas - dislike
William Theodore - like but dont love
Otto Maximillian - I LOVE the Otto part but not the Maximiilan part.
I think Otto Zachariah is a better combo (and the winner )

I like Hugh, Thomas and William, dislike Declan, Zacharian and Otto, and really really really dislike Maximillian and Theodore - which means that I don't like both names in any of your combinations.
If I had to choose, I would choose Hugh Zachariah.
But if I could mix them up, I would much prefer:

Hugh Zachariah - love Hugh, not Zachariah. Hugh Maximillian?
Declan Thomas - ok, prefer Thomas to Declan
William Theodore - lovely
Otto Maximillian - it works, I'm just not real keen on Otto.
I think they all work as combos, I'm just not keen on all the names individually. As MN's are not really noticed too much my favourite would be based on first name, so Hugh Zachariah, 2nd William Theodore.

My favourites of those names are Hugh, Thomas and Theodore.
Posted 14 February 2013 - 10:45 AM
Hugh Zachariah - ok - prefer Zachariah Hugh
Declan Thomas - nice, Thomas Declan nicer
William Theodore - ok, prefer Liam Theodore
Otto Maximillian - no, prefer Maximillian Otto

The others are all fine but Otto Maximillian is a stunner. Fantabulous!
Posted 14 February 2013 - 02:01 PM
Out of your list I like : Zac instead of Zachariah, Declan, Thomas and William. Not a fan of Otto or Maximillan like Max though as for Hugh I can take or leave
Posted 14 February 2013 - 02:13 PM
Declan Thomas is my favourite. Otto Maximillian sounds OTT to me.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 07:23 AM
I think Otto Zachariah is a better combo (and the winner wink.gif )
I hadn't thought of that one, I like it, thanks.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 07:31 AM
I always find Hugh a really difficult name to say as it doesn't really seem to have any distinct sounds to it. Not a fan of Zachariah either but all the others I like, especially Otto (it was my boy's fantasy name ) but not too keen on Maximillian. I prefer Otto Theodore from your list.

I like Declan Thomas and prefer Otto Maxwell to maxmilliam. William Theodore would make me think of Bill & Ted's excellent adventure.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 08:13 AM
Hugh Zachariah - like this a lot (though would avoid the name Hugh if child is likely to be overweight)
Declan Thomas - love the name Thomas, don't like Declan
William Theodore - like this, but prefer William with Thomas (for some reason the name Theodore doesn't grab me..it really does sound like one of those "nerdy" names to me)
Otto Maximillian - not a fan
I like Zachariah Thomas as a combo.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 08:17 AM
Hugh Zachariah - like this a lot (though would avoid the name Hugh if child is likely to be overweight)
Going by my other children, highly unlikely.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 11:11 AM
Otto Maximillian is my favourite. The others are all good, but not as interesting.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 04:34 PM
Hugh Zachariah - I love Hugh, but not a fan of Zachariah (would like Hugh Zachary a lot though)
Declan Thomas - I've always loved Declan, and Thomas is a fine name if a little dull. I'd love Declan Theodore.
William Theodore - Fine, but I don't love William
Otto Maximillian - Nice, but a little bit over the top for my tastes.
So although I know they weren't combos you listed but I love Hugh Zachary or Declan Theodore.
