My top three boys names (at the moment) are
S isn't keen on the first two and doesnt love Harrison. Though cant suggest any hisself!
Opinions on these names please and would you shorten Harrison to Harry or Harris?
Oh and do you prefer Brody or Brodie?

I'll be honest I'm not keen on any but it really is personal taste isn't it.
Harrison is fairly popular round here.
I prefer the spelling Brodie. Reminds me of Brodie Jenner from the hills/kardashians!

My Harrison has always just been Harry. Some of his mates in school have called him Haz.
Brody just makes me think of Homeland, but that won't be in people's minds in the future so I don't even know why I mentioned it, lol. Nice name.
We took Cooper off our list today for being too 'American' (though don't know if it is). I like it but it doesn't suit us much, we're better with old-old names. If I say we're keen on Wilfred and Edwin you can see what I mean!

they all seem quite American to me. I would shorten Harrison to harry I think. I would assume brodie was a girl, brody was a boy.
oooh....counter! love love love Wilfred! nn Wilf (h says no though!)

I love Cooper, it would be on my list for a 4th alongside Miller and Quade. I'd spell Brody with a y as the ie ending looks a bit more feminine to me and I imagine Harrison would be Harry although Harris is nice and if you call them that straight away I'm sure it would stick.

Brodey would be top of my list if we ever had another (for boy or girl). I spell it with EY at the end though, as it goes with my other 2 boys, who have names that end in EY...
Cooper is my Mums married name (well, it was until she re-married my Dad), so I just think of it as being a surname.
I'd have to shorten Harrison to Harris, rather than Harry, purely as Harry is too popular for my taste.
My other name choices for a boy, after Brodey, would be Corey and Riley.

I love those names. I especially love Harrison but the only one I know gets shortened to Harry and as we have a Mairi it'd sound daft.
I like Jake, Owen, Zack, my nephew is Rory which I like too.
I'd spell Brodie.

I don't like Harris, makes me think of Frank Butcher or similar saying something like "shift yer 'arris!" :-)

Well my maiden name is Harrison so sounds a bit odd to me as first name - my cousin is a Harrison and it always get shortened to Harry.

I seem to like surnames as first names for boys - we have Logan already, I like the ones mentioned above and also like Millar and Harvey.
H is now saying he likes Oscar. I'm not to keen.

My nephew is called Harris - people often think its short for Harrison (its not). He's also in Scotland.
I'd also go with brody over Brodie, as I think the ie spelling looks like a girl's version of the name.
Nice names :)

My nephew is Harrison. It gets shortened to Harry.
I don't like brody.

I know a Harrison that has never been shortened. It was he intention to be Harry but he never has been and now he's older (9) he chooses Harrison. I like Brody from your list. Actually I like them all.
