    What do you think of the names Truman and Thatcher

    I kind of like Truman and Thatcher and I'm considering them but not sure if they sound too stuffy

    They just sound very political to my ears- Harry S Truman and Margaret Thatcher? If I were you, I'd pick one and leave the other.

    Agreed. I think Thatcher is a very charged choice atm, too, especially with Margaret Thatcher's fairly recent passing. I'm not in the UK, but I have friends who are, and they said the situation brought up a lot of negative feelings and frustration from the past, so I think with any associations to the UK, it could be a bit of a risky choice. I do like it a lot, though (although I like Truman more!). I agree that Thatcher and Truman are a bit much together, but separately they're fine, and very cool names at that. I really like Truman, but I like Truett even more--have you considered that? I think it's lovely.

    Agreed. I don't know where you're from, but Margaret Thatcher was (and still is) very divisive in the UK, people either loved her or hated her, and even when she died recently there were people celebrating it, she was that loathed in certain parts of the country.

    To second the suggestion of Truett, what about Fletcher? That's got a very similar sound to Thatcher, is still a surname name, but just hasn't got the political edge to it.
