I love the name Rupert. What are your thoughts?

littleoscarsmama Mon 30-May-11 15:01:13

It's a bears name. Dont go stealing it now!

Ruthie32 Mon 30-May-11 16:10:36

I love it and started a thread about it recently too where it got mixed reviews.
I have since changed my mind though having tried and failed to picture a grumpy spotty 16 year old called Rupert....!

LynetteScavo Mon 30-May-11 16:40:52

And Oscar is a man's which recently has been given to dogs. hmm

I like it.

roguepixie Mon 30-May-11 16:44:19

No. Just don't like it I'm afraid. Sorry.

usualsuspect Mon 30-May-11 16:44:36

Just no

I love it, I used to know a Rupert who had a brother Barnaby

Love it.

Not the bear who springs to my mind more the womanising Rupert Campbell-Black. Way too much Jilly Cooper reading grin

Love the name

I really like Rupert. If people are worried about the Bear connotations, what about Felix the cat, Thomas the tank engine, Barney the dinosaur, etc etc. People will soon loose these association when they meet a person with one of these names.

And I don't think any name is going to make a grumpy spotty 16 year old cool grin.

All the Rupert's I have ever met have been terribly posh. Quite like the name, but would not use it. We do not mix in Rupert circles.

The only way for names like Rupert to become less posh is if more 'common' people use it smile.

I knew a lovely Rupert years back he had lovely floppy hair and played polo

thighs of steel

[happy sigh]

Love it.

DH is a Rupert. And really not that posh. To be fair he did get a lot of stick as a younger child but loves it now, as do I.

Isn't the red headed lad on the Harry Potter films called Rupert?? That's a teenage (maybe spotty) Rupert!

I've known a few (always with floppy hair) and I like it, but they will be teased rotten if you are intending to send your boy to the local comp. Nothing wrong with the local comp, but I work there and the kids I teach say William and Oliver are posh names for toffs, so goodness knows what they'd do with a Rupert!

I think of it as a young name though as I've never known an old one! The one I know best is highly reminiscent of Prince Charming in Shrek! Hair flipping included!

My friends called Rupert, gets rupe. I think its a cool name.

muminthemiddle Thu 02-Jun-11 14:38:47

I love it! Dh vetoed it. Always reminds me of Rupert Penry -Jones, gorgeous.
