What are your thoughts? I like it but I worry that my boy will be teased.

I want a strong, masculine name. Any ideas?

doodledaisy Wed 15-Jun-11 16:15:17

Love it, love it, love it. Was our boy choice but we had dd2.

EveryonesJealousOfGingers Wed 15-Jun-11 16:18:31

I think of wellies and Gladiators in that order!

Prepare yourself for the Fear and Loathing comments.

MelinaM Wed 15-Jun-11 17:06:09

Wellies here too ..sorry!

Just change the H to a C, and spot the potential nickname NO-ONE wants.

Not only that, I see it is rather down-market, it's the type of name rednecks in America call their kids.

Ug. Me Hunter. You woman.

CJ2010 Wed 15-Jun-11 17:27:39

PurpleStrawberry - Ha ha! Oh dear, hadn't thought of that.

sparkle12mar08 Wed 15-Jun-11 18:55:38

Gladiators, wellies, and rednecks. Sorry, but it's really awful.

MamaLazarou Wed 15-Jun-11 19:07:45

Hunter the munter. And that balding bloke off Gladiators.


Bandwitch Wed 15-Jun-11 20:25:55

Awful. It's really..........^aggressive^.

Mrsfluff Wed 15-Jun-11 20:30:46

I like it <runs and hides>

browneyesblue Wed 15-Jun-11 20:33:02

I like it, but DH didn't.

UrsulaBuffay Wed 15-Jun-11 20:34:02

Masculine to the extreme, like a cartoon version of a man. And the gladiator.

GetOrf Wed 15-Jun-11 20:34:59

lol at fear and loathing.

It's a vile name. Call the kid Bernard.

Bunbaker Wed 15-Jun-11 20:35:45

Soory, but it doesn't appeal to me. It is a tad pretentious.

messybessie Wed 15-Jun-11 20:37:00

This breaks my golden rule of naming children.

If you hear someone shout it in a park, how many legs do you expect to come running.

nancy75 Wed 15-Jun-11 20:37:04

Dp wanted hunter when I was pregnant (he is australian they like funny names), luckily she turned out to be a dd, had she been a boy I still wouldn't have used it,it's awful

LoopyLoopsBettyBoops Wed 15-Jun-11 20:37:30

Not keen. Pure bullying material. How about Axel?

LoopyLoopsBettyBoops Wed 15-Jun-11 20:38:11

GetOrf Wed 15-Jun-11 20:39:03

Having pretentions to what, though?

Living in a trailer in Alabama? Drink root beer for breakfast?

It's a name which should come with a free lumberjack shirt.

razzlebathbone Wed 15-Jun-11 20:41:19

I love it but I know I shouldn't.

blossomtrees Wed 15-Jun-11 20:50:08

my frineds dh name.It is brilliant really suits him and their second name

SpeedyGonzalez Wed 15-Jun-11 20:52:36

Hate it. Pretentious and macho. Sorry, CJ2010!

Fine, as long as your surname is not Gatherer.
