Seriously starting to consider this, what do you think?
Or any other suggestions for boys names beginning with J?

LOVE. Jarvis Cocker - what's not to like?

HyvaPaiva Sun 08-Dec-13 19:08:00

Really don't like it, sorry.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 08-Dec-13 19:12:22

I like it but wouldn't call my own child it.

But that goes for a lot of names!

Not for me.

It reminds me of Jarvis Cocker, which is obv awesome.

But also of Rob Newman's pervy smoking jacket-wearing character, which would put me off.

I also used to have a hamster called Jarvis.

Really like it.

I like it, and it surprises me a little but I do. Reminds me of Iron Man too

At one time I wouldn't have liked it but I know one who is now two and I really like it.
I think that's the thing to remember when picking an uncommon name-people will soon switch their associations and view it positively, even if they weren't keen at first.

I know of someone with a baby jarvis! Some days I think it's lovely.. Other times I don't like it!

DD is at school with a boy called Jarvis. I haven't actually met him but I immediately assumed he was cool with a name like that.

weirdthing Sun 08-Dec-13 21:18:45

Oh yes! Great name!

MrsUnderwood Sun 08-Dec-13 21:19:17

I love Jarvis Cocker! Do it!

MrsT2007 Sun 08-Dec-13 22:24:26

Now, much as I love the Pulp link, I know about 4 cocker spaniels called Jarvis & that's all I can think of now.

It is a nice name though!

Brilliant name - wish I'd thought of it myself.

The only one I know is a cocker spaniel. Or lots of people where it's their surname.
