I wanted to name my newborn after My grandad and his name was tord but im not sure if thats a good name for a baby

Without being insulting it sounds a bit too like Turd for me. Sorry.

mouldycheesefan Tue 12-Jul-16 18:41:18

I fear it becoming turd 💩

Paulat2112 Tue 12-Jul-16 18:42:14

Another vote for turd here sad

Turd. Sorry, I really don't mean to be disrespectful about your grandad flowers

Elllicam Tue 12-Jul-16 18:43:22

Could you maybe make it Tor? Or did he have a middle name?

Arfarfanarf Tue 12-Jul-16 18:43:50

it's Scandinavian isn't it?

Depends where you live I suppose.

It lends itself to juvenile toilet humour but if you like it then use it.

Sorry yes it just sounds like Turd.

What about Thor?

Betrayedbutsurvived Tue 12-Jul-16 18:44:41

yup, he'll be turd throughout his entire school life I'm afraid.

NeedACleverNN Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:12

I've never heard that name before.

Are you in the UK? I can't see it going down very among his friends

Floggingmolly Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:27

Of course it's turd, it doesn't even have a capital letter to establish it as a name (at least it doesn't in your op)

EmpressOfTheVaginaDentata Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:28

I'm really sorry but I saw Turd at first too. Could you use Tord as a middle name?

SecretNutellaFix Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:52

Nope- he'll become Turd very quickly.

ccsays Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:59

Agree with the above, sorry confused How about Torin?

OhTheRoses Tue 12-Jul-16 18:45:59

What about Thorsten? No, I agree, you cannot call a child Tord in this country. His school days will be shit if you do.

MissBattleaxe Tue 12-Jul-16 18:46:31

Yep, he'd be turd by the time he reaches reception age and for evermore after that.

FizzyFeet Tue 12-Jul-16 18:47:36

How about Torsten or Todd? Or did your grandad have a middle name you could use instead?

FeckArseIndustries Tue 12-Jul-16 18:51:09

It's lovely to honour your granddad but with your child's wellbeing in mind, perhaps a modified version:
Tor/Torr
Thor
Tod
Tom
Rod
Ruary (shorten to roar/roared?)
Lord (or maybe not)

Pigeon314 Tue 12-Jul-16 18:52:24

No no no. It sounds like Turd. In fact, in a flat Dublin accent bird is pronounced bord. so.......... for me it'd be a no.

I like the suggestions of Todd or Torsten though!

Pigeon314 Tue 12-Jul-16 18:53:26

" you cannot call a child Tord in this country. His school days will be shit if you do."

lol grin

Queenbean Tue 12-Jul-16 18:55:42

Really? confused

Eeeek686 Tue 12-Jul-16 18:59:53

Genuinely thought this was a joke thread (& my kids have got fairly 'out there' names) until I googled it. Definitely Not Tord - as everyone else has already said! - but Tor and Thor are both known derivatives so the sentiment would still be there?

GandalfsWrinklyHat Tue 12-Jul-16 19:01:23

Torin?

LynneB59 Tue 12-Jul-16 19:07:53

It's not a proper name, is it? Surely you can think of something better.....

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 12-Jul-16 19:50:39

I'd put it in the middle name spot, personally.
