Erm. . . we live in Yorkshire and don't seem to have any problems with pronunciation!

But I like it with the h sounding not ugo!
So I like it hugh-go smile

Nothing is wrong with posh - my dc have what I consider 'posh' names too!
I like it smile

I quite liked it until I suggested it to my mother and when she said it back to me in her Yorkshire accent I realized that both of us would forever be (unintentionally) calling the baby 'ugo or yew go. Even though our accents aren't particularly strong it seems that this is one of the words that it just doesn't work with.

It is nice though if your not from that area of the country!

Hugo- mine is almost 3, blonde, ridiculously handsome and has everyone in stitches most of the time. Well, you did say talk about Hugo!!!!!!

Seriously, it's a fab name, most people love it and interestingly mine has a rather lovely elder brother called George. . .

Hugo is a great name.

I would pronounce the H in Hugo exactly the same way as the H in Henry.

I really like it. Hugo is becoming an incredibly popular name in Sweden. In case you cared!

I'm in the SE too and there are 2 Hugo's in DD's reception class. Lovely name though

I like it but it's getting quite popular down here (SE). I know 3 under 3yo.

What is wrong with posh?

The only thing I'm not keen on is the way the H is pronounced in English - heeoo - rather than H as in Harry.

Aaaah I quite like the posh bumbling man image grin

We already have a George and I think it goes quite well.

It was either Hugo or Arthur but DH loves Hugo and is not so keen on Arthur so I caved in.

I know a 3 year old Hugo. He is lovely.

Only problem is that it's a very difficult name to pronounce when you're small. My ds calls him fewgo!

Conjures image of posh bumbling man in early 50s for me smile

I always think Hugo is a happy name - rather lovely really

VBisme Sat 09-Feb-13 18:22:00

Hugo is quite posh but lovely.
