Thoughts on this please?

One of DD's best friends is a Byron. I love it and I know his mum has has lots of compliments on the name.

I love it, wish I had thought if it for DS, especially as the poet went to my old school

I know a lovely Byron, excellent choice

I love, love it.

I like it but it reminds my of Byron burger restaurant chain which I walk past daily

Love it, great name and makes me think of Byron bay in oz which brings back fantastic memories and is quite cool.

What could it be shortened to? I always think that, By?

My friend called her little girl April and she's lovingly know as baby ape, she didn't see that one coming.

I like it in theory.

However the weedy adult Byron I met some time ago put me off. Just the least aptly named person I have come across since Lord Adonis and in the latters defence Adonis is his surname!

I've taught two and they were both really badly behaved. Put me off the name big-time.

"Mad, bad and dangerous to know?"

Not sure that that is the pedigree you're looking for... wink Actually, I rather like it.

Don't like it, sorry.

It's funny that Byron is cool and yet Bryan would be unanimously hated.

My favorite boys name of all time. Unfortunately despite having 4 boys I have never used it as its just stupid with my surname

Loads of Byrons round my way , due to his connection with the local area.

I love the name Byron. Would love to use it but DP is Australian and has vetoed it.

I love it.

CaptainCunt Tue 18-Feb-14 11:47:34

I don't like it at all, sorry OP!

I don't like it, I know one about 7yo. Could do worse.

I would be concerned that people would think he was called Bryan.

It would indeed be very distressing to be suspected of being someone who'd burden an innocent child with Bryan.
