    We had Henry James picked out for a boy, and all was good u til DH mentioned henry the Hoover. That gave me Hoover issues. I began to see DH dressing him up as a Hoover for
    Halloween etc!

    Since I went off it, we picked Louis (which I still like, but don't love). Whenever we talked about names DH kept saying "I still love Henry". This is the only name he "loves".

    I'm beginning to agree with him. I've been saying both names over and over in my rad, and Henry just seems so much nicer!

    Think I'm gonna have to forget my Hoover issues and go with it. We both love it.

    So, little man is most probably now gonna be Henry James Smith.

    Can't wait to meet him to sort this out once and for all!

    Henry James is lovely! Your post really made me chuckle, but honestly I would not have thought of the hoover (and I actually own a 'henry') lol xxx

    Henry is still my favourite out of all your possible names, I think it is a great name. I do like Louis aswell but Henry is stronger and more masculine sounding.

    I didn't think of the Hoover I thought of the writer! But it's a good, strong, classic name. I much prefer henry to Louis.

    Awwww that's such a gorgeous name Carly! Very strong and suits a little boy as well as a teenager and a man, so will be great throughout his life. I think people will always make associations no matter what name you pick, even with a name like Verity people at school thought it was fun to go on about ferrets! As long as it's a name you're happy with and goes with the rest of the names you've picked out, I think you have to go with the one you're in love with!

    Lovely name , I don't think of Hoovers, think of Kings names! I think most people just know if a name is right by the time birth comes , with practice of the name- well done
