milenaviolet, love your husband's declaration that he's not William! Could he be a Frederick...?
We have had nothing but positive reactions to our little Frederik. Our German family/friends adore the name. I always get (German) strangers telling me he has a handsome strong name that he can be proud of.
My American family has also been supportive. My grandmother (and Frederik's great grandmother) loves his name and told me it sounds very regal. She calls him "Frederik the Great". My sister says his name is fresh, stylish, and quaintly old-fashioned (which is what we were going for). I'm sure not everyone loves his name as much as I do, but nobody has said anything negative. And as everyone has gotten to know him, I've had a couple family members say that the name really suits him.
Good luck and have fun with making your decision. I'll be keeping and eye out for your announcement.mother to Louisa (born 11/22/2010) and Frederik (born 2/19/2013)
