    Barry: too dated?

    Barry is one of few boy names that I adore. I'm not sure how my husband feels about it, but I would consider it one of my own top three boy name choices. Maybe it's because of the "teddy bear" imagery, but I just think it sounds so huggable for a little boy, while at the same time can grow up nicely. But is it too dated? Would it be weird? Would he feel like a dork in a classroom of little Jacksons and Masons?

    I unfortunately just think of Barry Manilow.

    Do you like Bareth or any of its variants? You could have your cake and eat it, too, with nick name Barry.

    For me this is very dated. Harry instead?

    When I hear Barry I think of Manilow, Gibbs & White. To me it has a middle aged man feel about it that it hasn't managed to shake off yet.

    I don't think it'd be weird at all. Maybe Barrett if you want something more modern?
