The other half doesnt like this name, but I love it, I think it is really different.

I think 'What do you think?' is great, not too popular but everyone's heard of it.

wink

What nicknames though? Thinky? And what if child has a lisp?

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:33:20

I like ? as a nickname. Short and feminine.

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:34:04

Shit, it didnt even post the name haha.
How dim of me.

Obie is the name.

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:34:39

Wan Kenobi?

Ummmm........

Bowlersarm Tue 04-Mar-14 15:35:22

Obadiah?

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:35:45

Its spelt differently to Obi Wan Kenobi..

Its better!
I havent heard it and don't think its a name he will get bullied over.

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:37:29

Yep, I can't imagine anyone~ asking to see his light sabre.

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:38:36

You think children are going to realise that?
Not unless their parents have an influence on teaching their child how to bully.

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:42:21

There is no way on this planet that someone called Obi will make it through a single day without a Star Wars comment.

You must know that!

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:43:13

My cousins are called:

Hudson
Presley
Gable
Niven

and they dont seem to get anything.

What about Coby/Cobie instead?
I quite like Obie, but I agree that the Star Wars references will come thick and fast.

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:45:05

Well then you should follow family tradition and call your child Guinness or MacGregor!

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:45:16

I think Cobie is more of a black name.
It reminds me of the basketball player

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:46:09

Oh dear.

pictish Tue 04-Mar-14 15:47:07

Oh does it? My dh's friend is Coby and he's a pasty Scotsman - always thought it suited him. Oh well.

Bowlersarm Tue 04-Mar-14 15:47:08

I don't believe you OP. Your cousins cannot have those names. (If they do Obi looks a bit tame tbh) He will get Star Wars comments though. And confused with Toby, Coby.

LeslieKnope Tue 04-Mar-14 15:49:00

Hudson
Presley
Gable
Niven

With middle names Rock, Elvis, Clark and David presumably??

confused

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:49:36

My cousins do have those names.
Oh well I will have to make him like Star Wars and carry a light saber around.

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:50:33

LeslieKnope, unfortunately she never took it that far!
But no surprising thats who they are named after.

pictish Tue 04-Mar-14 15:50:33

I think your cousins names aren't as obvious for teasing as Obie is, because of the Star Wars thing.

becki93 Tue 04-Mar-14 15:51:33

I would have thought Elvis was a lot more popular than Star Wars though

squoosh Tue 04-Mar-14 15:51:52

I hope little Gable and Niven nave raffish pencil moustaches.

pictish Tue 04-Mar-14 15:52:55

Kids nowadays have no idea who Elvis Presley is. Not so Obi Wan - they ALL know who he is.
