Identification of these Pumpkins/Squash

Hi Guys,

I got given these fantastic things for Hallowe'en but I didn't know the variety and I would really like to grow them next year. I got given the small one to grow earlier in the year but they were unaware about the variety, the others I got about a week ago.

Thanks in Advance,

    Doesn't look like Crown Prince to me - the skin of Crown Prince I know is smooth and shiny and an almost steely blue/grey.

    I don't recognise any of the pumpkins in the photos.  Sorry.

    The top one could be jaune gros de paris. I grow these and it looks the same. it produces very large pumpkins - well worth growing!
