WDYT of Serge for a boy?

SpringHeeledJack Sun 21-Nov-10 00:05:13

not as much as I think of Gustave.

why are English boys not called Gustave?

Horrible, sorry.

Are you French?

I would think of a tide ( different spelling though) or some hard wearing material.

I think that you might hit pronunciation problems. I would assume a Russian connection and pronounce Sir-gay, which I think is cool but I also know a Serge which is pronounced more like surge which I don't like. Not sure which you would be going for? Personally I'd expect an English child with either name to have quite a strong European connection.

haven´t a lot of people heard of Serge Gainsbourg?

i don´t think there would be a pronunciation problem tbh.

And surely "Sir-gay" is Sergei?

cumbria81 Mon 22-Nov-10 09:32:18

No. Makes me think of sleazy old French men

How would you pronounce it, like Sergei?

mathanxiety Mon 22-Nov-10 18:59:08

'Ser-gay' would be the Russian Sergei.

Serge I would pronounce as in Serge Gainsbourg ('Surzh', approximately).

Agree with the nooka, think your DS would just be called Surge.
