Hi all

Ok so Im only in tri1 and having all the usual worries but to distract ourselves and try and enjoy our first baby experience we have been writing a baby name list..............it is the fun part afterall

Anyway I LOVE the name Alfie George for a boy.......always have loved it for some reason....my OH likes it, but says it is really popular at the moment.....I havent heard of anyone I know calling their baby Alfie but not to say it isnt very popular............just wondered what everyones thoughts were on this??

Thanks as always

Ali xx

I don't have any friends with babies named Alfie but its my dads name And he really wants me to use it as a middle name if I have a boy. I love it but I'm baised lol.
I wouldn't worry about popularity either as long as it doesn't bother you. I'm the same, I've loved the name Emily for years and now its REALLY popular but I'm going to use it if I have a girl.

Pinky, I loved Emily for a girl too, but an ex of mine recently had a little girl and called her Emily, so that ones out for me, but still love it...............Im liking Freya for a little girl and OH likes Mia!!

Well we have 7 and a bit months to decide lol, its just fun in the meantime xxx

It is fun, I love looking at all the lists of baby names. I've pretty much decided on Emily Kate for a girl and Lewis Alfie for a boy
