Hi there
My hubbie and I are keen to chose unusual baby names and we have always loved the name Huxley for a boy. My fathers middle name is Wolfe and combined with our surname Lang, we believe we have ticked the unusual box! I would love to know your thoughts!

I think Huxley is great. Middle name doesn't really matter as it rarely used - use a name that means something to you.

Huxley is terrible. I do like Wolfe as a middle name though.

If you're giving him an unusual name, my advice (as one who had a v.v. unusual name!) is to give him a middle name that is "normal" then if he hates the attention that having an unusual name brings, he can opt to use his other name and be more anonymous.

Do you have boys already? With comicbook graphic novel names??

here's a thread on the subject of my "unusual" name

I love the name Huxley, but always think of Huxley Pig (oink oink). Sorry!

Wolfe is lovely, but not sure on Huxley. It sounds American.

the pig

My first thought was also Huxley Pig. A big no from me, sorry.

I like it but then again my first thoughts were Aldous Huxley author of A Brave New World rather than Huxley Pig.

Love Wolfe as a middle name, but really not fond on Huxley. Sorry.

I instantly thought of Huxley Pig too, must have been because the theme tune was so catchy

onimolap Sun 21-Nov-10 00:34:13

I thought Aldous Hucksley. It's not a name I'd go for.

I love Wolfe, and other wolfish names - couldn't persuade DH though.

Quite like it!

Jilly Cooper rang - you've just stolen her lead character for her next book.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Sun 21-Nov-10 13:34:37

I like it.

freerangeeggs Sun 21-Nov-10 17:29:12

I thought Aldous Huxley. That guy had a cool name.

I actually love Huxley, not sure I'd have the nads to put it in first name position though.

With Wolfe it's maybe a bit much.

Huxley James or something sounds more classic and less crazy.

Secretwishescometrue Sun 21-Nov-10 17:38:33

Huxley wouldn't be my cup of tea and to be honest first thing I thought was hmm wasn't that the name of the little boy in the Adams family? But on second thought I realised that was Puxley or sumit along those lines.... Sorry target over.... Would actually prefer Wolfe as a first name...

Secretwishescometrue Sun 21-Nov-10 17:40:33

Tangent not target... blush

FrameyMcFrame Sun 21-Nov-10 17:59:26

how will you feel calling 'Huxley!' out in a busy play park?
If you're ok with that then it's fine for you.

I have an unusual name and although I hated it as a child as it made me feel self conscious, I now like it!

PaigeTurner Sun 21-Nov-10 19:26:46

I love Huxley.
