This family who i sometimes stalk on facebook has just had a new Dash. Their first child's name Jagger has kind of grown on me to the point where i find it kind of cute now but Dash...

My dp likes it, maybe its me.


(i hope they dont use mumsnet)

Wasn't the little boy in Disney's "the Incredibles" called Dash? I kinda like it, its punchy. And easy to spell.

I quite like it, is it short for Dashiell? or just Dash?

The 80s pastel 'leisurewear' brand Dash springs to mind. So nope, don't like it.

Benetton for the next child perhaps?

I know a Dash, short for Dashiell. I think it's cute.

Was also going to say Dashiell. Not sure about Jagger though hmm

It's a soap powder, or it was.

What is Dashiell? Cate Blanchett has one too. Is this the sur name of somebody of note (that I in my ignorance am not aware of)

It's another dogs name. Soon they will be calling babies Spot and Patch

I know a little Dashiell, nickname Dash. I like it. I'm less keen on Jagger.

valium Dashiell Hammnet - an American author, created Sam Spade, I quite like Dashiell but not Dash, like MelinaM too Kardashiany (its what they call their shops)

Dash - an unfortunate name if a child is stocky of build or on the chubby side or has not the slightest interest of moving their feet in quick succession.
