I know someone with a Rex

they were looking at the tat things on the sea front with names on them, and she said to her son
"we never find anything with your name on do we?"

the lady running the shop asked his name and then said
"well you could try the pet shop!"

how rude!!!

I like it. Her choice her baby.

It's better than Apple, Satchel or Papaya

not keen on it

It's a great name.

I can't bear dogs being called human names. They should be called things like Patch, Stinky, Rags, Rover etc.

Wonderful name! I have a Rex, hence my user name.

Congratulations to Fearne.

We wanted Rex for a DC but I was under the illusion that if I saved it, Id never get the chance to use it so we gave it to the Cat. Sad that I couldnt then use it for a boy.

Great name!

I grew up with a Rex, and he was gorgeous. Ahhh...

Also my dgm had a dog called Rex. I don't understand the whole "it's a dog's name" thing. Loads of people call their animals by "people" names. Unless you had a dog named Rex and then had a baby and called him Rex, it's really not an issue.

I like it but Rex Rayne sounds just like Max Payne.

I love it. Good for her!

I loved the name Rex, although my mum had a dog of the same name, but was put off it slightly a few years back when that short arse uppity bugger on Big Brother had it as his name angry

I think maybe a Donkey actually....gringringringringrin

Surely Ned is a horse's name...

Gunzroses, I guess nobody calls their dogs Rex anymore. they are probably all called sensible names like Matthew or Simon these days. The world has obviously gone mad.

I actually have come to realise that I love names that are 'supposed' to be dogs names.. My son is called Monty, my brother's called Toby, my nephew is called Rufus, best friends have sons called Rex, Wilbur, Max, Ned and Digby. All 'dog' names apparently!

discobeaver Fri 22-Feb-13 20:31:25

I like Rex but I think of 'wrecks' so it's not for me!

Tincletoes Fri 22-Feb-13 20:14:03

I like Rex too - although agree with squoosh that I'm surprised Fearne has chosen a name that I like so much.

I think Alexander Armstrong (who I like much more than Fearne) has one too.

I read that as relax!!

Thank fuck it's Rex and not that!

My best buddy has a 18 month old called Rex. It means 'Little King' - very cool, and hence why people used it for dogs. Years ago.

It makes me think of Rex Harrison though his full name was Reginald I think. Rex is a pretty cool name.

Thewhingingdefective Thu 21-Feb-13 23:08:43

Yes, I was gonna say that too 2blessed. He was a tit.

Not a big fan of Rex to be honest...although think its because there was a Rex on Big Brother a few years ago, and he was a horrible person. It's that whole association thing. i don't like the name Rachel either because of a girl I was in school with! smile

Thewhingingdefective Thu 21-Feb-13 23:03:15

My grandad's Alsatian was called Rex. The name makes me think of Woodbines, working men's clubs and drinking Dandelion and Burdock out of a chipped Silver Jubilee mug.

AnnaD2 Thu 21-Feb-13 21:02:23

I love it, but I have a nearly 2 year old called Rex, so I may be biased. It is definitely a love/hate name. I've decided to be flattered that Fearne has such good taste....
