Which is better?

I think Harley is quite cool but Harvey more normal.

Not even sure i'm sold on either, this is OH thoughts, so honest opinons as I wont be remotely insulted

My cat is called Harley.

Um, is there a third option hidden in there somewhere. I pick that. Unless it's Harpy.

franke Tue 21-Dec-10 22:26:54

Harvey if it has to be one or t'other

My Stepson is called Harvey. His 'mother' chose the name. She is a chav. Her best mate has a son called Harley. Also a chav.

WingDad Tue 21-Dec-10 22:31:29

I much prefer Harvey. My motorbike is called Harley because it is a Harley.

RudolphReindeerTuppennyTail Tue 21-Dec-10 22:31:36

Are you saying my cat's a chav?

Rudolph- I didn't want to say, but now you ask.....

fluffygal Tue 21-Dec-10 22:38:35

Your cats mother is a chav, I'm sure your cat has escaped his roots.

Both of them bring to mind the sort of word that begins with c and ends with v. Sorry but no!

AllieW Tue 21-Dec-10 22:40:28

Harley is a motorbike and Harvey is a rabbit (and an imaginary one at that). Sorry.

Edmundo Tue 21-Dec-10 22:40:38

Harvey. The Harveys I know are not chavs!

RudolphReindeerTuppennyTail Tue 21-Dec-10 22:42:37

fluffygal - it's worse than you think. It's Harley short for Harlequin. From chav to ponce. <<sighs>>

ILoveItWhenYouCallMeBoo Tue 21-Dec-10 22:45:28

harvey is what katie price called her son. 'nuff said.

Nightstar Tue 21-Dec-10 22:54:02

You girls do make me laugh!

Yes, I'm putting a line through both names right now!

Tortington Tue 21-Dec-10 22:55:21

harley is a bike

harvey is a 6 foot imaginary rabbit

fluffygal Tue 21-Dec-10 23:05:00

Rudolph- I'm not sure which is worse......

TBF My SS isn't a chav (he is only 4) as he lives with me and has no contact with his birthmum, thus decreasing her chav influence.

ChrisTingles Tue 21-Dec-10 23:08:18

I go with option 3 as well

Komondor Wed 22-Dec-10 10:19:33

I don like either.

I do know quite a cute 2 year old Harvey though, and his parents are definitely not chavs (his mum just loved the name).

AnonEnormousStuffedBird Wed 22-Dec-10 10:22:23

Harley is AWFUL. Not at all cool, just tried way too hard. Poor kid

Harvey is ok, but still a bit dodgy. Non-event of name, but still I wouldn't.

I know of two teachers who have called their new sons Harley, so obviously to teachers it's a name with no bad connotations.

I know three other Harleys. One (male) had a mohican in reception. The other two are girls.

I know a lovely Harvey.

Preggersplayspop Wed 22-Dec-10 10:28:13

I know a lovely Harley. I wasn't keen initially but he is so sweet and suits his name. If you love it use it, don't worry about what other people think.

NarcolepsyQueen Wed 22-Dec-10 10:41:36

One of my cats is Harvey. Not sold on either name to be honest (my pussum came with the name). Keep searching!

LadyOfTheFlowers Wed 22-Dec-10 10:47:30

Neither, personally, but if I had to choose one, would be Harvey.
