What do you think of the name for a little boy?

RatOnnaStick Thu 16-Mar-17 07:03:25

Schwartzenegger. Sorry.

statetrooperstacey Thu 16-Mar-17 07:09:39

My friend has one, it really suits him, there are now 2 others, ( who stole it!grin)

I nearly called my son Arnaud so i like it

Popskipiekin Thu 16-Mar-17 07:12:21

What about something similar like Harold or Howard - Harry/Howie?

Herhighness Thu 16-Mar-17 07:15:13

Both names are great for a boy, friend of a friend recently had a baby boy and he is Reginald known as Reggie. Frank is a good boys name too.
Good luck.

Dislike intensely.

PseudoBadger Thu 16-Mar-17 07:25:58

He'll always be back

Don't like either, sorry shock!

But lots of people didn't like the name I wanted for my son and I always feel annoyed that I entertained other people's opinions.

If you love the name, go for it.

Arnold is really great. Love it. As FK says, you'll always get people who don't like your choice... Go for what you like.

DonaldStott Thu 16-Mar-17 08:08:42

Synonymous with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sorry.

pasturesgreen Thu 16-Mar-17 08:11:57

I personally don't like either, sorry.

Babbaganush Thu 16-Mar-17 08:14:16

Arnold is a popular surname in my area (and family).

purplemunkey Thu 16-Mar-17 08:16:22

I like it. I had a friend called Arnold at university and always thought it was quite a cool name. Not deliberately quirky or 'unique' but uncommon nonetheless. I'd consider it for a future DS!

Purplebluebird Thu 16-Mar-17 08:18:11

Afraid I don't like it.

Sandsnake Thu 16-Mar-17 08:19:56

Arnold Rimmer. That is all.

Sunnysky2016 Thu 16-Mar-17 08:22:18

Don't like it. However, it is what you think not others which matters.

Gojitters Thu 16-Mar-17 08:25:47

It would have been my dd's name had she been a boy. Statistically it's very rare these days.

However, having a dd with an uncommon name (Xanthe) and having to repeat her name three times, correct mispronounciations and spell it almost EVERYTIME I introduce her to someone I don't think I can also face having a son where I have to say 'arnie, yes like schwarzenegger'.

SistersOfPercy Thu 16-Mar-17 08:27:14

"Shut it football hhead " was the first thing that came to mind sorry.

Trifleorbust Thu 16-Mar-17 08:29:30

"Rimmer. It was the way she said it. Rimmer. To rhyme with 'scum'."

"Arnold Judas Rimmer?"

grin

Really don't like old man names

Willow2017 Thu 16-Mar-17 09:39:11

"Get to ze chopper"😉

Seriously its your baby your choice. You decide if you can ignore the obvious associations and do whatever you want. Not my cup of tea too 'old mannish' for me but that's me not you.
