For a boy.
I love the meaning...what does it make you think of when you first hear it?

Point Break.
It's what our dog is called (blonde, shaggy, water-loving, thieving renegade that he is!)
<outs self massively>

LOVE. IT.

Back when I was a Buddhist I was going to use it (and convince dh with the whole Point Break thing!) Hmmm... might still pop it on the list. Nothing on this thread is convincing about it being bad!

1. Point Break
2. Steely Dan Bohdisattva

Both good references as far as I'm concerned grin

I had a dog with that name - he was lovely!

FriggFRIGG Thu 15-Nov-12 10:25:07

It is a good name for a cat...

Lakota Thu 15-Nov-12 07:59:24

It's on my list of names for my future cat. Not being sarcastic, it really is! But I love Point Break [not very spiritual emoticon]

Bodie and Doyle. On seeing it I thought "Body"

ButtonBoo Thu 15-Nov-12 07:56:49

Although I am a little cautious... Would a Bodhi be taken seriously in job interviews.

Anyone else read Freakonomics?!! wink

Love it. Was on my list for DD incase she was a DS. Now on my reserve list for round 2!

I think of a spectacularly pretentious family who live round the corner and have a child with that name (and a triplebarrelled surname)

CPtart Wed 14-Nov-12 13:47:01

Yes, Patrick Swayze in Point Break. Fabulous film!

YDdraigGoch Wed 14-Nov-12 13:41:12

Yes, would stay clear - sorry sad

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Wed 14-Nov-12 13:12:33

grin

Yep, definitely Doyle then. Sorry Frigg.

FriggFRIGG Wed 14-Nov-12 13:11:01

Boh-dee

(like roadie)

But it's been stricken off the list anyway...see above grin

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Wed 14-Nov-12 12:47:16

I wonder how to pronounce it.

YDdraigGoch Wed 14-Nov-12 12:44:33

Is it pronounced as in "body", or as in "roadie"? Either way he'd be forever having to tell people how to spell and pronounce it.

Point Break.

FriggFRIGG Wed 14-Nov-12 01:15:58

Awh shite.
That's out then grin

I'd never live it down.

FriggFRIGG Wed 14-Nov-12 01:12:36

I wonder if it's still open....
my DSIS lives in sydndey...and we are veggies...she'll think I've gone mental and named the baby after a restaurant grin

FriggFRIGG Wed 14-Nov-12 01:10:22

Hmmm...

No chaosy I'm not pregloa yet just decided to TTC and over excited,names are probably my favorite bit about having DC... wink

I wanted to test the water with Bodhi here as I know the moment DP hears it,he'll be set on it he's a hippy

exexpat I knew i knew it from somewhere else! That was a bloody nice restaurant...

exexpat Wed 14-Nov-12 00:41:16

I'd think tree, Buddha etc, and also the name of a rather nice vegetarian restaurant I used to go to in Sydney. But to be honest it's not a name I'd want to lumber a child with - what if he isn't remotely serene and Buddha-like? And people will constantly mishear it as Brodie or want to spell it Bodie etc.

Viviennemary Wed 14-Nov-12 00:36:19

I'd think pardon what was that again. I'd think I had misheard.

tipp2chicago Wed 14-Nov-12 00:33:06

Wasn't there a Bodhi in Home & Away?

Still loike it.

Are you having a child?
