For a boy?!

Wasn't the character in nuts in may called Aubrey? Tim Spall played him.
It's not a name I'd choose, mainly because it sounds a bit wet.

I like it as a name for a boy, probably because I know an Aubrey who is clever kind and witty and I would be pleased to give a child a name with such positive vibes.

I used to know one, he was a man, he would be about 90 now if he is still with us.

Definitely a boy's name to me, and I love it. Mainly because of Jack Aubrey from the Aubrey/Maturin novels, whoever mentioned him!

It's my DS's middle name, after Captain Jack Aubrey. Love love love it.

I like Aubrey as a girls name... Less keen on it as a boys name. Bit close to Audrey for my liking!

Definitely a boy's name, my next door neighbour is called Aubrey and he is lovely.

Definitely a boys name but the ony one I could think of was the slightly wimpy one in the Monica Edwards books

I know an old man called Aubrey. He's lovely.

You asked.

Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible.

Sorry.

For a girl, good god NO!!!!

Absolutely love it.

Rhubarbgarden Mon 19-Nov-12 23:03:20

I love it. If dd hadn't been an Audrey it would have been a contender for ds!

CheerfulYank Mon 19-Nov-12 23:07:25

It's nice.

But I am American and know about a dozen little girls called this and no boys.

My mum got touched up by an employer called Aubrey 35 years ago. Not sure that helps but it's a nice name

Like it - seriously considered it for my DS and may use it in the future.

Don't like it either, have only known one who was a red headed lad and always called Aubrey the Strawberry.

SoupDragon Tue 20-Nov-12 11:49:49

I know it is a boy's name. However, I still see Audrey when I see it.

Hate it.

Especially as most children get their d and b mixed up when writing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers that cartoon! And Aubrey was also Boycie's real name in Only Fools and Horses. Definitely a boy's name as far as I'm concerned.

I love Aubrey for a boy, but then by DS does have a very unusual name.

I think it's lovely but defo see it as a girl's name.

There was a song from the 70s I think called "Aubrey was her name" that I loved as a teenager. Also was too feminine sounding for a boy IMO.
