Not me. I'm not pregnant.

Wondering on other views.

the Tweenies..

We may go for Milo. I like it, different but not too left field.

burberry grin I hadn't even thought of that!!

I prefer Milo but the name is nice

flowery Tue 25-Jun-13 11:03:13

Milo. DS2's name so I like it obviously. But not spelled with a 'y'.

CrapBag Tue 25-Jun-13 11:19:06

I just know someone who has called their DS this (and I know MN don't like this word but there is no other way-the dad is an absolute chav).

I have never heard of a child being called this. However there is a family member with a dog of this name!

I like the name, but the tv connotations put me off xx

Milo or Miles are both lovely. Not keen on Mylo.

I was in a cafe the other day and there was a little boy called Calamari or possibly Kalamari?

I'm not one to judge names usually but I did raise an eyebrow at that one!

Littlecherublegs Tue 25-Jun-13 11:49:10

Not keen on Milo - certainly wouldnt spell it Mylo.
Though both are much much better than C/Kalamari!!!!!!!

Milo...it's ok. To be honest, it's somewhat on the pretentious side for me and I'd definitely assume a middle-class background.

I've got Milo on our list. Not sure DH is that keen though. May be a tad too 'out there' for us. Not too fussed about the Tweenies thing though, doesn't stop people naming their little girls Bella.

Chocolate drinking powder.

Tweenies. Not necessarily a bad thing though?

Sarahplane Tue 25-Jun-13 16:44:53

Reminds me too much of the tweenies so no.

AllegraLilac Tue 25-Jun-13 16:54:43

Mylo Xyloto?

Rhubarbgarden Tue 25-Jun-13 17:58:31

Makes me think of the underwear brand, although that's Myla.

niffernaffer Tue 25-Jun-13 19:08:12

Mylo is our next door neighbour (short for Myles). Me me think of an australian soap character. He is a nice guy, nonetheless.

Ragusa Tue 25-Jun-13 19:10:56

You would have to hope they never moved to aus. It (well, Milo at least) would be like calling a child Ovaltine here smile

Ham69 Tue 25-Jun-13 19:42:20

I met a lovely Mylo (spelt that way too) last year. His mum was great too so have good connotations. I like it a lot. Wouldn't be at all bothered about the Australian drink. Ned seems to go down well on here and that has a far worse meaning (in Scotland) than a drink!

CrapBag Tue 25-Jun-13 20:43:47

I actually don't know the spelling. I assumed the name was spelt Mylo but I think I may be wrong on that one. The Milo is the way the dogs name is spelt. To me the name is close relatives dog (very sorry to all who have or know a Milo but its the only way I know the name, until the tweenies link was pointed out).

"it's somewhat on the pretentious side for me and I'd definitely assume a middle-class background."

This really made me grin. If you saw the parent that I know, this is not, in any way shape or form, how you would describe him!!!!!! Ever. Ever, ever.

'Motherfuckers gonna drop the pressure...'

Anyone?

commsgirl Wed 26-Jun-13 13:27:05

My dog's called Milo so that's the immediate connotation for me. Objectively I like it though'

HormonalHousewife Wed 26-Jun-13 13:31:32

I am old and remember Ricky lake who calling her son Mylo 16 years ago. Then at the same time the tweenies started.

I have a cat milo, he's grey and fluffy and very cute.
I do like it for humans as well though, just automatically think of the cat when i hear it.
