    Thanks guys, happy to hear a positive response! Choosing baby names is so hard!! We were so sure about our first, there really weren't any other names on the table...

    At this stage we are still just testing ideas - Charlie was one of the few names hubby has suggested!

    I have a friend from work who has a daughter called Charli, but I figure I will just have a direct conversation with her and tell her how much we love the name and are considering it. It is not a super close friend, in fact I have never seen her outside work, so I don't feel like I need to ask... Any thoughts?

    I wouldn't even bother telling her prior! Just explain that after the fact! In our workplace out of 40 of us 5 of us had 'jack', 2 had 'millie', 2 had 'alice', and 2 had 'archie'. There were no conversations, we just did it!! When it comes to names, go with what you want!

    We were tight lipped about our dd's name when I was pregnant and when she arrived my bridesmaid said "well that's just knocked that name out of my top 5!", but workmates I wouldn't worry about. Our workplace is quite close too and we do a lot of things socially.

    I think by the time your DS is older charlie would be more common/ acceptable as a name. So i wouldn't bother with Charles. I think it sounds rather outdated personally.

    The only negative implication of using the name Charlie, would be it's increasing popularity as a girls name. My DS has one of those names that was onces a boys name, now accepted/considered a girls name. So i do worry about teasing when he is a bit older.

    I wouldn't worry about your workmate - as you say you don't see her apart from work. I think it is a much nicer boys name anyway!
