Is it too wet?
I'm quite liking it at the moment - means curly haired, and all my DSs have curly hair. (Knowing my luck if I name this baby Crispin it will have the straightest hair ever though.)

So, Crispin? Yes or No?

I can't decide on this one, I don't think it's particularly wet, but I don't love it. What are your other DC's names? Would it go?

I know a Crispin and not a curl in sight grin. I like it.

Not keen tbh

I think it's wet sorry.

I love it! It's the lead singer of the Longpigs' name.
Crispin and Crispian were both high on my list but DH has vetoed them hmm
Now, I'm promoting Ruarridh.

Think of the nicknames & possible shortenings - Chris, Crisp, Crisps etc etc If you are cool with all that, it is quite a nice name and not heard very often.

Thought 'wet' before I opened link!grin

Noooo!

I love it! I'm trying to persuade DH round as no 2 is due around St Crispin's day. Kit would be a good nn too.

Kit would be my preferred nick name too! Christopher Marlowe's my favourite playwright and he was a Kit.

Isn't there a serial killer called Crispin?

Even if there isn't, I really don't like it. You do know he'll be called "Crispy" don't you?

MrsBungle Thu 29-Aug-13 08:14:08

No, I think it is wet.

ZolaBuddleia Thu 29-Aug-13 08:15:55

Really wet, sorry. It's one of those names like Julian.

I know someone with a child called Cass, which means curly haired, if that helps.

Awful. Sorry.

How about Cass/Cassian.

I like Emile and Elijah.

First thing I thought of was Rice Crispies as a nn, sorry!

Crispin. Isn't it the first name of Mr Bingley in Pride & Prejudice? Thats just from memory so I will google in a sec.

If so, maybe that's where the wet thing comes from.

TripleRock Thu 29-Aug-13 09:21:49

Ha ha, it's only the name of the actor!

May have watched the BBC version a few too many times in my teens... blush

Although I like the feeling of the name and love the nn Kit, I just think "crisp" when I hear it <I may be permanently hungry too>

UriGeller Thu 29-Aug-13 10:33:26

Crispin Glover. He's cool.

mrspaddy Thu 29-Aug-13 10:36:33

I wouldn't choose it

I'm not a huge fan of it and it instantly makes me think of this book.

Weegiemum Thu 29-Aug-13 10:41:29

englishteacher do you mean Ruaridh? Lovely traditional Gaelic name but doesn't have a double 'r'.

Crispin? Just no (but may be ok for instance in SE England. Can't see it going down in Glasgow, though!).

Wetter than all the oceans in all the world.
