Love it, really and truly. But DP thinks it's posh too so it's a no go for us. I don't get that sense at all but obviously lots of people do.

I don't like it, sounds posh to me, along the lines of Tarquin.

Have a nephew Miles - he's clever and quite cool.

Lovely name, masculine and straightforward. Very rarely heard but known.

Latin for soldier. Don't think it's particularly posh these days. Met plenty of non-posh Mileses.

Miles Mitten that's just adorable! I once taught a boy called Nathan Hug - he was so sweet, you really did want to hug him!

Love it - prefer Myles to Miles tho

I have a Myles...old family name. My grandad & cousin were also Myles'.

I decided to use the y instead of i as that is the was my grandad's name was spelt.

Love it. Prefer it spelt Miles. Lovely nickname potential of Milo or Miley when little.

Miles is one of my favorite names.

I know a massive Geordie Shore type called Miles - not posh at all! I love it!

Don't think it would be confused with miles / kilometres!

Love it.

In the UK/US, where distance is measured in miles, it would be like naming your child Kilometres grin. Don't like it as a name, sorry.

Giles works better as a name imo.

Like it!

Love it, also Piers and Giles.

My son is called Dexter Miles and I would have been happy with Miles as a first name.I also liked Piers and Giles.
