I love Angus nn Gus. DH likes Gus but not Angus and suggested Gustav (as in Holst, Mahler and Klimt) nn Gus but I'm not sure I like Gustav but don't think Gus is a name in its own right. Baby on its way on the 23rd so not much time left. What do you think?

Only other name I can think of is Augustus - Gus but I don't think I would use it.

Gustav I don't really like tbh.

If dh doesn't like Angus and you don't like Gustav, is there any other name you are considering?

That's unfortunate because I prefer Angus out of the two! Gustav just doesn't sit right to me.

What sort of names do you both like?

I know a Fergus. Such a cute boy, called Gus by his siblings.

I know a Guius, who gets both Guy and Gus.

I like Gustav, and prefer it to Angus (which reminds of me steak for some reason...).

Much prefer Angus to Gustav. But Fergus is good.

Angus is perfection, that's a shame. Gustav, if you don't have connections to a culture where it's a common name, might sound odd.

Just call him Gus?

Or Magnus?

I like Gustav.

Angus reminds me of Aberdeen Angus cattle.

Angus- think it has more of an 'aura' about it..
