Thoughts on the name for a girl please........?!?!

CockyFox Mon 26-Aug-13 20:16:19

Like in X-men?

Dollydaydream99 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:17:03

Yes I believe there's one in x-men!

Slainte Mon 26-Aug-13 20:17:08

I think it's a negative sounding name, sorry.

Dollybird86 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:19:16

Hi fellow dolly i love Rogue smile

Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Mon 26-Aug-13 20:19:23

Like the jockey in jilly coopers jump?

squoosh Mon 26-Aug-13 20:19:29

I prefer Wretch.

exexpat Mon 26-Aug-13 20:21:01

Sounds to me like a name for a dog or a racehorse, or possibly a rapper, not for a child.

Phineyj Mon 26-Aug-13 20:21:31

If you call them that you are asking to have the best behaved, most tediously honest and virtuous DC ever! Bit like calling them Chastity or Joy.

First definition in the dictionary is

An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal.

ImATotJeSuisUneTot Mon 26-Aug-13 20:22:26

Oooh, I like it. We toyed with Logan for a boy (Wolverine)

exexpat Mon 26-Aug-13 20:22:31

Is this definition something you would really want to saddle a child with?

Mumblyboo Mon 26-Aug-13 20:22:44

Horrid. Sorry.

CockyFox Mon 26-Aug-13 20:22:46

I like it but only because I love the x-men films.

WafflyVersatile Mon 26-Aug-13 20:23:39

Sounds like a good plan then, phineyj!

I actually quite like it, for a girl. confused

MorrisZapp Mon 26-Aug-13 20:23:39

You can't do it. It is awful.

Bowlersarm Mon 26-Aug-13 20:23:49

Maybe spell it differently. It does have a nice sound but not a nice meaning. You may as well call her:



Faverolles Mon 26-Aug-13 20:24:10

Online thesaurus definition of rogue....

Featherbag Mon 26-Aug-13 20:24:47

Sorry, can't stand it. Doesn't pass the 'QC test' for me (as in, can you imagine your child's name being read out on national news as the lead counsel for the defence, QC Rogue Smith) and it really does instantly conjure up Anna Paquin in X-Men.


Scallywag as mn perhaps?

exexpat Mon 26-Aug-13 20:26:15

I guess it might appeal to the small minority of people who know the comic book character, but I have never heard of her, and neither will most people your child encounters - but all the English speakers will know the usual meaning of rogue, and will wonder what kind of parents would call their poor child that.

WafflyVersatile Mon 26-Aug-13 20:26:27

My name means joy so obviously everyone thinks I am one.

Stands to reason. Like star signs.

Smartiepants79 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:26:40

Please do not spell it differently. That would make it even worse.
It's a comic book character.
Think it's a bit silly.

sqoosh grin

OP it's a bit like calling her Dastardly!

SmallBee Mon 26-Aug-13 20:27:36

I'm not a fan of it, ignoring the negative connotations above, frankly the character in the X-Men is really annoying! If you're going with X-Men I prefer Storm.

josiejay Mon 26-Aug-13 20:28:20

No. Please don't.

Floggingmolly Mon 26-Aug-13 20:29:25

I wsh I was pregnant again; I really want to start a thread called "what do you think of the name Gobshite for a girl"
Just for a laugh, like...

bridgetsmum Mon 26-Aug-13 20:30:32

No, yet another daft "name"
Poor child

exexpat Mon 26-Aug-13 20:31:03

Floggingmolly - I don't think you have to supply proof of a positive pregnancy test before you can post in baby names. Go for it...

I quite fancy Deviant. It sounds so feminine. Might spell it DeeVeAnte though - what d'ya think?

Onesleeptillwembley Mon 26-Aug-13 20:32:14

Oh yes! With sisters Bitch and Mardy-Cow. Fucking ridiculous, but I think you know that. But judging by some of the shite people want to saddle poor innocents with on here......meh.

WafflyVersatile Mon 26-Aug-13 20:33:12

I think 'poor child' on about 50% of baby name threads. grin

Layl77 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:33:38

Just no. Rogue? Think of another with the same sound. Can you imagine someone saying their friend 'rogue' said... You would double take and I'd feel sorry for her

KittenCaboodle Mon 26-Aug-13 20:37:19

Is your surname Trader? If not, then it's a no.

Rogue X: Space Detective.

Yup, definitely a no.

Floggingmolly Mon 26-Aug-13 20:39:52

True, exexpat. So, what do you think of Gobshite for a girl?... grin

TSSDNCOP Mon 26-Aug-13 20:42:48

No but what about


I've only just started reading the Baby Names threads and they all go like this grin

WafflyVersatile Mon 26-Aug-13 20:42:49

When I think of rogue I think of ''the old rogue! what's he done now? grin'' or 'roguish charm', roguish good looks', 'roguish smile'.

MichaelBubleBath Mon 26-Aug-13 20:49:01

Am I the only one who thought of Gladiators? blush

Rogue is a bad name

Rowan or Roisin

KateCroydon Mon 26-Aug-13 20:50:32

Noooo. Gobshite's cute though - Gobby as a NN?

TSSDNCOP Mon 26-Aug-13 20:52:21

If they NN her Gobby she'll forever be Gobby The House Elf sad

Floggingmolly Mon 26-Aug-13 20:56:42

Oh go on then; I'll save it for the boy. Nobody would pick on a boy called Gobby, surely?

pooka Mon 26-Aug-13 21:01:23

Sounds like a gladiator. Or an unfriendly woman in a jilly cooper book.

Not positive. I'm not keen. But is not my decision! smile

Mardy-Cow with the hyphen is great. Classy.

Onesleeptillwembley Mon 26-Aug-13 21:23:14

Thanks Remus I thought it added that certain something. grin

sonlypuppyfat Mon 26-Aug-13 21:25:50

Thats the best laugh I've had today, can you imagine a vicar saying it at a baptism!

grin Rogue Trader, perfect name

LoopyLupo Mon 26-Aug-13 21:27:33

My intial thoughts were 'that's a nice name ... for an X man.

Writerwannabe83 Mon 26-Aug-13 21:42:09

Reading all your comments has made me laugh out loud! I've had a rubbish day, feeling crap and nauseous and this thread has now really cheered me up grin

littlemog Mon 26-Aug-13 23:34:14


Cloudkitten Mon 26-Aug-13 23:42:04

You are joking, right?! I don't care re X Men connotations, I don't watch it so know nothing about it but I would be hmm if I did because it's somewhat tacky to call child a very niche name from a famous TV programme, and hmm as I don't because Rogue is so... Rongue. For ANY CHILD. Please don't do it.

RoadToTuapeka Tue 27-Aug-13 04:18:59

Sorry but I think thats a dreadful name to lump a child with. She will be an adult human sometime not a dog.

DalekInAFestiveJumper Tue 27-Aug-13 04:33:29

I've got a friend who's a big comic book fan. All four of her children are named after comic book characters.

Even she would not name her daughter Rogue.

MrsMongoose Tue 27-Aug-13 05:24:17

Vogue would be miles better!

ShadowSummer Tue 27-Aug-13 13:51:01

I would think that you were an X-Men fan.

And I think it's a terrible name to give to a child.

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 13:52:06


SevenReasonsToSmile Tue 27-Aug-13 14:00:41

No, no, no, no and no.
And no again.

Dollydaydream99 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:54:44

Thanks mumsnetters, perhaps I should have elaborated.... I'm NOT considering it as a name!!!!!!!

A friend of a friend has called her daughter Rogue & I wanted your opinions to see if I was the only who thinks "rogue, wtf?!" smile

Onesleeptillwembley Tue 27-Aug-13 15:14:11

Oh that poor child - what an awful, selfish thing to do!
