    I have a mini problem.

    As some of you may have seen, my little boy who is three is called Harry. My problem is that the name I have fallen in love with for my new little boy is William. Jake my OH likes it too, but if we pick it for our second son are we going to be subject to years of smart comments about copying Prince Charles / Lady Diana?

    I could always pick another name of course but I don't think our hearts would be in it as much.

    Who cares what people think. If you like the name and they suit it then go for it!

    As long as your surname isn't Windsor or Wales I'm sure people wont notice anyway! :rofl:

    Oh Good! William it is then!

    Thanks Scally, I've been ghosting on here for a bit but haven't really felt like getting too involved after everything thats happened. I guess I was setting myself up for the worst. Tomorrow though it will be a fortnight since my last bleed so I'm feeling alot more hopeful!

    PS. My 20wk scan tomorrow too!

    yer go for it. You might get it once from each couple you know that think it's funny (which it isn't) but they will stop it. Just say Harry and William not William and Harry. Then it doesn't sound like the royals iykwim (press always say william and harry don't they not the other way round.)

    Blimey not sure I'm making sense but anyway go for it. x
