Would be grateful for your thoughts! Thank you.

Nice. Especially if you are a bit posh.

It's a bit posh for me. Prefer Hugh.

MardyBra Sun 17-Jul-11 10:09:36

I think Hugh is equally as posh.

PaperBank Sun 17-Jul-11 10:55:57

Yes it is, I just prefer it to Hugo.

MelinaM Sun 17-Jul-11 11:21:25

I love it!

echidnakid Sun 17-Jul-11 11:33:14

I like its quirkiness. It is a bit posh I suppose but nowt wrong with that. wink

I love the name Hugo. I think it has lots of character and a name that will serve him well from being a baby into adulthood. It's not overused either - I think this is a lovely choice! Have you any idea of a middle name?

I love love LOVE it!

threecurrantbuns Sun 17-Jul-11 16:09:24

I LOVE it but that might have something to do with having the most adorable Hugo myself smile

I do think it is 'posh'. In fact, I know someone who isn't 'posh' and has called her DS Hugo and I think, in her case, it is certainly aspirational. When I heard what she had named him, I did actually roll my eyes.

However, I don't really have anything against the name, it's a fine name.

LittleOne76 Sun 17-Jul-11 18:25:21

thanks so much everyone. hadn't though of the name as being posh before (we're from the states and don't really get the posh thing in the same way..)

Tillylove - still tossing up middle names...!

threecurrantbuns - do you have nicknames you use for your little Hugo? Was think "hugh" is the obvious abbreviation but wondered what else you may have come up with.

threecurrantbuns Sun 17-Jul-11 19:38:32

We don't use any nn for him I was quite sure I wanted him to be Hugo and not Hugh. So far no one calls him Hugh. Although dd1 does call him Hughgy (sp)

I've been told a nn often given when they are small is huggIe. My phone you let me do a lower case I for some reason

I like it, but it is definately a rah name. It was on our shortlist, but I decided against it for this reason.

Purplebuns Mon 18-Jul-11 13:06:39

I really like this is my top 3 fave for boys. The only thing that put me off is some people who can't speak properly say is as yoogo <<shudder>>

pooka Mon 18-Jul-11 13:11:33

Love it. know 1 five year old an 1 3 year old Hugo.

Not raah.

One has Spanish parents. One plain south London background.

Noleen Mon 18-Jul-11 18:20:17

I love it and never thought of it as Posh but more cool, but then again I'm from South Africa so I don't get the whole posh or not thing.

going Mon 18-Jul-11 18:22:51

I love it!

onanightlikethis Mon 18-Jul-11 18:30:01

love it! we have a hugo...

ramade Mon 18-Jul-11 18:39:53

It's a name that will make a lot of people think "posh"

PamBeesly Mon 18-Jul-11 18:42:04

its lovely

missmiss Mon 18-Jul-11 18:52:48

I love it. I've heard Hugs as a nickname, which is quite sweet for a small boy.

LittleOne76 Mon 18-Jul-11 19:25:33

All the feedback's really helpful. Thanks so much. We're def not posh so maybe it won't have that same association given context. I have this image of a little boy running around the flat now called hugo.. aww. Have a few weeks to go before he's due (I'm 28 weeks) so will need to be patient.

Absolutely love Hugo was one of my choices for a boy, but ended up with two DDs. Also love Huey as a nn.
