What do you think of Hugo as a boy's name? It's listed on Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder.

It is one of the two most beautiful boys' names in the world. :-).

Felix would be my favourite, then Milo.

Milo then Felix for me. Don't love Hugo.

Hugo for me, Felix is fast becoming the new Oscar, and I've only ever come across Milo's of the canine varietygrin

Personally, wouldn't give DS the name Hugo unless we had a french connection (I automatically think of Victor Hugo).
Felix is a black & white cat.
Milo is a dogs name to me, or the little boy from Phantom Tollbooth (so is my fav of the lot)!

Miles is better than Milo - he could be Milo as a nickname when small and cute then.
Felix is a favourite - I had not thought of the silly cat association until right now. How annoying.

Aren't they cats names? Sorry, but I have known cats with all those names, especially Milo ( can think of at least 3!)

I like all of them, but I think that Hugo is my favourite - not as "now" as Felix, not quite as trendy as Milo, great on a baby or an adult.

Felix is far too popular amoungst the Fulham set

Hugo is really great name

Milo is just awful!

lisianthus Sat 11-Jun-11 15:00:53

Hugo is probably my favourite. Felix is a popular cat food (and the cat!) and Milo is a hot drink- to my ears, it's like calling a child Bovril.

IslaValargeone Sat 11-Jun-11 15:03:26

Love Hugo.

scarlettsmummy2 Sat 11-Jun-11 15:09:39

My husband and I have Hugo on our list for number two. I really like it, although my hubby is worried it is a bit pretentious. Not fussed on Milo and dislike Felix.

nagynolonger Sat 11-Jun-11 15:17:08

Hugo is lovely
Miles is nicer than Milo
And I'm sorry Felix is a cat.

Depends on where you live if it's somewhere like Islington (arty lefty liberals professional who work in medja) then you'll be 10 a penny but industrial northern town then you'd be hard pressed to meet another one

sophiesmummie Sun 12-Jun-11 11:03:38

I don't like the 'Heeooo' sound at the beginning of Hugo in English.

And Milo is a

Felix is nice but it is a brand of cat food.

So personally, I'm not keen on any. But it is YOUR baby and you've got to choose the name YOU love, not us smile.

We have a Hugo and we get lots of compliments on his name.

He gets called Hugs, Baby Hugs or Hugzy grin

If you live anywhere other than London or Surrey, you child will be beaten daily once he is 11, so don't do it.

smother Sun 12-Jun-11 11:27:29

Milo and Felix both seem v popular these days.
Hugo is a tad on the posh side for me.

sophiesmummie Sun 12-Jun-11 11:31:17

"If you live anywhere other than London or Surrey, you child will be beaten daily once he is 11, so don't do it."

Where do you live shock?

colditz Sun 12-Jun-11 11:41:28

Rural Leicestershire

I too find the H sound of Hugo a little odd (prefer the H of Hug or Harold), but then Hug-o doesn't sound good either imo.

Milo is malted chocolate drink and Felix is a well known brand of cat food, which may or may not bother you.

But I wouldn't think there was anything teaseworth about these names, certainly not more than with name like William (e.g. Willy) for example - in fact most names can be teased with a little imagination.

TidyDancer Sun 12-Jun-11 13:41:43

I think they all sound a bit too pretentious. But of the three, Hugo is better.

rachel1970 Sun 12-Jun-11 16:29:22

Am surprised that some of you find these names 'teaseworthy' and 'pretentious'....We live in London with a great variety of names - lots of different nationalities and lots of different names, and no one bats an eyelid at some VERY unusual names. I find Hugo, Felix and Milo very common and, apart from the cat and/or malted drink connection, would not imagine that the kids I know would find anything 'teaseworthy' about these.

But I guess what one person finds 'pretentious' another finds normal smile. Thankfully we all have different tastes.

Agree that there are quite a few locally fashionable names which sound quite normal in certain parts of London but would seem a bit OTT elsewhere.
