Thoughts on the name John Paul? I met a little one last week. I then just fell in love!

I love it!

Isn't it a little ... pope-y?

Pope

Pope

Pope. Or Hollyoaks.

Papal

AllPowerfulLizardPerson Sun 04-Sep-16 21:01:24

Lovely.

Very Roman Catholic

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 04-Sep-16 21:01:35

Pope to me too!

I know one who goes by JP, and he is a great guy! I like it.

RiverTam Sun 04-Sep-16 21:02:11

Pope. Or deep south hillbilly, can't decide which.

FrancisCrawford Sun 04-Sep-16 21:02:19

A classic name. Not faddy so will never date.
Some might think of JP II, others might think of Lennon and McCartney - just shows its wide ranging!

Buttwing Sun 04-Sep-16 21:02:33

Love it, I know one who is shortened to JP he's gorgeous.

LizzieVereker Sun 04-Sep-16 21:05:04

I really like it.

paddypants13 Sun 04-Sep-16 21:07:25

Very Catholic sounding but a good solid name.

I have only known one JP and he was an arse of the highest order. However, it wouldn't put me off the name.

fanniboz Sun 04-Sep-16 21:09:14

My first thought was "George and Ringo" grinnice name though, can't really go wrong with it. If you like it then go for it smile

ToffeeForEveryone Sun 04-Sep-16 21:09:54

So long as you don't add in George and Ringo as middle names you'll be alright.

Tis quite Pope-y though.

DamnGood314 Sun 04-Sep-16 21:10:08

40 year olds!
I know a few.
All JPs or jays or john.

I like popes' names. Im not even catholic. I like classic names but unusual ones, but not william harry etc. Popes' names leo gregory dominic john-paul appeal to me.
Not pious though!

EllenDegenerate Sun 04-Sep-16 21:10:32

It's lovely

SpeckledyBanana Sun 04-Sep-16 21:11:41

Pope. Or George and Ringo. TBH neither of those connotations would bother me, so I'd still go for it if I were you smile

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 04-Sep-16 21:14:03

I instantly thought of JP II, but Pope names can be nice. I love the name Benedict for example.

katemess12 Sun 04-Sep-16 21:14:54

I thought of John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin... much cooler association than the Pope.

I like it. But I like both John and Paul individually, too.

Chippednailvarnishing Sun 04-Sep-16 21:17:18

Coming from a good Irish family, it's a name my Granny would love!

memyselfandaye Sun 04-Sep-16 21:18:35

I knew a John Paul, he looked like a young Mr Burns from The Simpsons.

Littlefish Sun 04-Sep-16 21:19:05

No.
Reminds me of the Pope, or half of the Beatles.
