STUART!

Can you imagine? He didn't speak to me for a few hours after I burst out laughing in his face and asked, incredulously: "what man, in this day in age, would call their son Stuart?"

My brother and his wife were considering Colin confused

EroticTebbit Tue 10-Sep-13 13:02:55

Colin is a brilliant name! I know a teen Colin and he is beyond cool.

These kinds of names will be the granny chic fashion for our grandchildren.

ExitPursuedByADragon Tue 10-Sep-13 13:05:04

I know. Having typed it I realised I quite like it. And Stuart.

peachyyy Tue 10-Sep-13 13:13:08

He even said that it should be spelt with a u to avoid nn "Stewie" (wha??)... I think of Stuart Little, the thick irish soup and Disco Stu from The Simpsons. No way. It's vetoed. haha

My dad suggested Alan for my DS on the grounds that when he met men called Alan at the golf course they were always nice chaps grin

Baby Alan.

I really like the name Stuart, if I was a boy I would have been Stuart!

I know someone with two sons, one named Leander and the other named Rafael Jett :S

Just hoping this person isn't on mumsnet...

ElBombero Tue 10-Sep-13 13:20:29

Haha I've often thought if the day will come again when Colin, Dennis, Alan, Clive all make a reappearance. Quite like Stuart though, doesn't seem old n certainly won't be common x

peachyyy Tue 10-Sep-13 13:22:39

Maybe I just know too many middle-aged IT managers with moustaches called Stuart...

GreetingsFrontBottom Tue 10-Sep-13 13:24:41

Ha ha Quangle. It's true, all Alans are nice.

BOF Tue 10-Sep-13 13:26:17

Dennis is a great name! I'd consider it.

PeacockPlumage Tue 10-Sep-13 13:27:42

I quite like Stuart...

Solo Tue 10-Sep-13 13:29:43

Stuart. Stuey is a fab nn grin

Trazzletoes Tue 10-Sep-13 13:31:41

I don't really understand what's wrong with Stuart.

JimbosJetSet Tue 10-Sep-13 13:35:44

I like Stuart. But then my DS (1 year) has got a name that hasn't been popular since the 70's... So I am biased smile

cubedmelon Tue 10-Sep-13 13:36:37

I like Stuart. smile

peachyyy Tue 10-Sep-13 13:43:13

Well there is no way I am showing him this thread, he'll feel vindicated.

Shodan Tue 10-Sep-13 13:46:06

:-) Oh dear. That's DH's name. And he's middle-aged and in IT. No moustache though....

(Don't tell him I said so, but I don't really like the name...)

Shodan Tue 10-Sep-13 13:46:41

Oops. Forgot where I was. That should be a grin

peachypips Tue 10-Sep-13 13:51:59

Get orf my name OP

smile

noisytoys Tue 10-Sep-13 13:52:07

There's a baby Alan at DDs nursery. None of the other toddlers can pronounce it they all call him Alum grin

CordeliaRose Tue 10-Sep-13 13:52:40

I like it too smile

Good, traditional name which doesn't sound dated to me......

VenusRising Tue 10-Sep-13 13:55:54

I like Clive. Has a certain something. Clovis is better.
Colin is a pigeon toed geek no no.

But Stewart is a bit Rod, isn't it? A bit of a blond hound?

DaleyBump Tue 10-Sep-13 14:01:24

My son is due in November and his second name will be Little. About 40 times a day I get "OH, YOU SHOULD CALL HIM STUART!! LOLOLOL." Stabby stab stab.

What is wrong with Stuart? really. Kevin, not so much, though it is rather popular in Germany, due to Costner.
