    Question Honest Thoughts on This Name

    My husband and I are almost in agreement with the name Alphonse (al-fonz) but my husband has the reservation that the name might be too unusual and old fashioned to use in the real world. I just want some opinions from other people to help us feel more confident in our choice.

    Hmm, I'm not too sure about this name. Have you thought about nicknames? Would you mind him being called Al, or Fonzie? Perhaps not by you, but by others?

    We actually like the nickname Al for when he gets older, thats one of the big reasons I feel so confident in it since he could shorten it easily.

    Honestly, my first thought was, "what if people call him 'The Fonz'?" Are you okay with this possible nickname, as in the guy from Happy Days? "Fonz" or "Fonzie" might be cute for just the right (thick-skinned) kid, but it would be tough to carry Alphonse as a first name.

    I think it would make an absolutely gorgeous and unexpected middle name. However as a first it doesn't seem to work, in my opinion. It's lovely just too heavy and old fashioned, sorry.
