Does this sound ok?

After MUCH searching we finally have settled on the name Royce Henry for our son.  We wanted something that was old but when you heard it you wouldn't automatically think old man.  We also wanted to incoorperate a family name so we choose Hnery because it is my DH Grandpa's name.  But I wanted to hear is everyone thought it sounded ok.  We have no other backups so if he gets here and we don't like we are in trouble!

  • All I can think of is Rolls-Royce. I think Henry is a great name. I would go with Henry Royce if those are the names you like.

    Agree with other posts I would choose Henry Royce instead.

  • We don't want a popular name.  That's why we choose Royce and not Hnery.  But thanks for all the opinions ladies.

  • I knew a guy in college named Royce.  I never thought of a Rolls-Royce when I met him, so that won't be the case for everyone.  I think Royce Henry sounds like a good name.  I also like names that aren't too common!  Name your baby what sounds good to YOU and your SO!  Good luck!

  • Royce is NMS but I love Henry

    I agree 

  • I really like it. I think it has a good flow to it. I didn't immediately think of Rolls Royce until I saw pp, and even if I did I don't think that would be a deal breaker.

    I hate it.  Sorry..

    I like Henry a lot though...maybe you could switch the names around?
