For a boy?!

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.

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

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.

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

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

Hate it.

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

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

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

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.

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

Dylanlovesbaez Mon 19-Nov-12 21:22:30

Absolutely love it.

CrapBag Mon 19-Nov-12 21:21:48

You asked.

Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible.

Sorry.

For a girl, good god NO!!!!

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

BarbecuedBillygoats Mon 19-Nov-12 12:56:44

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

madamecake Mon 19-Nov-12 12:52:05

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

zingally Mon 19-Nov-12 12:48:58

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

QueenBOObread Mon 19-Nov-12 11:57:44

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

MulledWineOnTheBusLady Mon 19-Nov-12 10:18:11

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

sashh Mon 19-Nov-12 01:25:52

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

Allalonenow Mon 19-Nov-12 00:31:27

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.

ripsishere Mon 19-Nov-12 00:25:38

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.

ladymia Mon 19-Nov-12 00:17:37

Hmm really not keen on it

louisianablue2000 Mon 19-Nov-12 00:16:45

For a boy fine, a good classy name. For a girl oh dear God no, just marks you out as a rather stupid person.

Well it is a boy's name but not one I would give to a boy of mine, that's for sure.
