OK, if you already have an Oscar, you definitely DON'T want a Felix!

I love old man names too and my fav by far is......SAM. My dh and I even have a joke where we call each other "old Sam" when we're acting too old

Good luck. I'm not even close at all to even thinking about names

Most definetly!
We are naming our baby Felix if he is a boy. We love old man names too.
So, how about Truman? That is my sons name. Everyone we run into seems to love it...especially old ladies. :LOL That must mean it's old.
We also love:
Henry
Harrison (Harry)
Lincoln
Samuel
George
Hudson (my dh's great uncle )

ETA: :LOL I just saw that you posted on my Felix thread.

I'm soooooooooooooooooooo glad to see so many of you using old fashioned names. My son is Ernest George IV and I'm so worried he's going to feel like an outcast in a world of Brandons and Jasons. Evidently not!

I've got a father Henry and a grandfather August so I'm loving both those! My ex-DH's grandfather's name is Syrene - another oldie. I loved that one too.

August is the only boy name DP & I could agree upon during our pregnancy (We had a girl & gave her a family name). If we have a boy next time, August it is!

Silas is my new favorite 2nd runner up!
