Re: Which name fits with our other names?

In the area I lived every August I knew was a girl, and "Gus" is the tubby little mouse on Cinderella, so I just couldn't do August, myself. Sorry

But on the other hand, my friend has a son Theodore after her family member called Teddy, so I have nice thoughts of a kid with the name. I also like Edward, cause he could chose Ed or Eddie too, all nice classic names.

Anywho... so far it's tied... you people are no help!
I love Teddy, too. Theodore was on our list. Edward/Teddy makes me think of Ted Kennedy, which isn't a bad thing.

I have some of the same associations of Gus being an animal's name - due to the tubby mouse and a cat I had as a kid.

Re: Which name fits with our other names?

Congrats on joining the 4 boy club!!! Lots of fun, I adore my 4 boys. My #4 is sweet and adored by us all.


I voted Edward as the question was which was the best "fit" and as pp said the other boys have more traditional names. But I really like August too.

August, but I don't like shortening it to Gus.

I don't like Edward.

I do like August, and I think it fits better with the other boys' names. I like Augustus or Augustin even better though, but I'm probably weird for that.

My goodness, Edward/Teddy has really pulled ahead. Very interesting.

I prefer August but Edward matches the other names. IMO August doesn't.

Re: Which name fits with our other names?

Interesting. I think of August as old fashioned (it was most popular in the early 1900s) and I think of our other kids' names as old fashioned. Do others not see it that way?
