Been strolling through recent discussions and can't see a mention of it.
One week away from eviction day and can't decide on names.

Love it. Met a recent one, great name for a baby and grows with them.

Do it, great name!

Ahhhh a really cute little Rupert ran across my pathway yesterday, i love the name and boy was he a cutie pie smile

PuffPants Sun 17-Feb-13 20:48:57

I do like it but it does scream bear, doesn't it? Or Murdoch?

cookielove Sun 17-Feb-13 20:52:20

PuffPants i didn't make either of those connections blush

Branleuse Sun 17-Feb-13 20:53:11

fabulous name

Love it, ds2's middle name.

ceramicunicorn Sun 17-Feb-13 20:56:08

Love it

DH thinks it's too poncy and queer sounding. I really like it but am one of those people who can't finally decide until I see him/her (we don't know the sex). DS1 was actually nameless for 4 days. Is anyone else like this?

Ruperts are usually posh or gay, or bears. Or all three grin

chocosaurus Sun 17-Feb-13 21:12:13

PhyllisDoris my DS just laughed when I read him your comment and said that's exactly what he thinkssad

MarshaBrady Sun 17-Feb-13 21:16:07

Ha at gay posh bears. I love it. But am aware of its aura, probably why it's middle name.

Chavvytastic Sun 17-Feb-13 21:17:07

I quite like it but i do think that Ruperts do generally suffer from stereotyping.

mrstowers Sun 17-Feb-13 21:20:47

Yes awful gay posh bears name! Yak!

lucywiltshire Sun 17-Feb-13 22:16:48

Rupert Campbell-Black - Jilly Cooper's most gorgeous male character so forget the fact there is a bear also called Rupert (no little kids will have heard of him will they?) and go for it. Love it!!

Friend wanted Rupert. She went for Ruben in the end as she couldn't shake the bear.

Very posh. Depends where you live, I suppose. Any 'Rupert' round here would have the piss ripped out of him, I'm afraid.

BlingBubbles Sun 17-Feb-13 22:33:49

I do like the name but I did immediately think of the bear grin

OkayHazel Sun 17-Feb-13 23:36:27

Rupert Grint is not gay, posh or a bear.

deleted203 Sun 17-Feb-13 23:40:50

No...but he'd still have had the piss ripped out of him for his name if he lived round here.

OkayHazel Sun 17-Feb-13 23:49:29

Then I'd be looking to move. 'Round here' sounds terrible.

germyrabbit Sun 17-Feb-13 23:51:50

nor is rupert penry-jones

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Sun 17-Feb-13 23:53:59

My first thought was Rupert Giles from Buffy.

I really love it though!

I had a schoolfriend whose younger brother was called Rupert.

At home his nickname was Poo grin
