    What do you all think of Bartholomew?

    Is Bartholomew too much for a child? I ADORE the name, and love the nickname Tolly, but when I say Bartholomew out loud it feels a bit... heavy.

    If you do like the name, which of these combos do you prefer?

    Bartholomew Finn (I love the spunkiness and unexpectedness of this, but do the styles clash just that bit too much?)

    Bartholomew Rex (See above, also - does this make you think 'dinosaur'?

    Bartholomew Frederick (I love the look of this on paper, but is it too much in the real world? Is it too much 'old man'?)

    Bartholomew Holmes (I think this is my favourite, and I'm a huge fan of the detective, but is the double 'hol' a touch repetitive?)

    Something else?? I'd love to hear your suggestions - Bartholomew is so difficult to create combos for!

    I think that Bartholomew would definitely be unique and stand out choice. The nickname Tolly is cute, but I doubt he'll want to go by that when he is older. I'm not loving the alternative nicknames that I see. Maybe Art?

    Thanks for the feedback! I agree, unfortunately Tolly is a nickname that a boy is likely to grow out of.

    I actually like Bart, but most people immediately think Simpson. I don't mind Baz as an occasional nickname, but I don't see it as a name someone might use every day. I'm not really a fan of Art or Arty

    I think it is just too much name. I am not a fan of the NN's for it either. Can you flip it to a MN? Rex Bartholomew sounds nice!
