Which do you prefer?

PfftTheMagicDragonhideGloves Wed 20-Jul-11 13:14:48

It's a name mash-up! A RL version of Glee!

I prefer Samous and Thomuel

BelleEnd Wed 20-Jul-11 13:15:39

I prefer 'or'

allhailtheaubergine Wed 20-Jul-11 13:16:44

I keep seeing Maddex in Baby Names.

Surely you mean Maddox?

HoneyPablo Wed 20-Jul-11 13:16:56

I quite like Maxdex

LovelyDaffs Wed 20-Jul-11 13:17:01

Agree with Belle

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:17:50

No, Maddex. It's a better version of Maddox I think

HoneyPablo Wed 20-Jul-11 13:19:25

Better? In what way?

coccyx Wed 20-Jul-11 13:20:08

both ridiculous, awful and too contrived

suzikettles Wed 20-Jul-11 13:21:10

It sounds industrial somehow. A cleaner? Solvent?

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:21:25

I personally think the pronunciation is better don't you?

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:21:59

why contrived?

allhailtheaubergine Wed 20-Jul-11 13:23:02

It sounds like a parcel delivery service.

Or depression medication.

WhipMeIndiana Wed 20-Jul-11 13:23:25

max - lovely
maddox - bit chavvy
maddex is like a painkiller

HoneyPablo Wed 20-Jul-11 13:24:33

So we like Max, but Maddex does sound like a painkiller.
How about Madmax?

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:24:39

But they're different and unique don't you think? A change from the norm or should I say the Yawn!

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:25:39

Oh, you see, I'm South African and I never thought of the chavvy thing. Ahh, I think I get it now! It is a bit.

OriginalPoster Wed 20-Jul-11 13:25:44

I don't normally say this, but neither. Is it for a girl or boy? Have you considered using them as middle names?

controlpantsandgladrags Wed 20-Jul-11 13:26:40

Maddex is pronounced Madd ex in my head. Presumably you're pronouncing it the same as Maddox but spelled wrong?

QueenOfFeckingEverything Wed 20-Jul-11 13:26:45

Noleen - you clearly have no intention of listening to what anyone says so why bother asking? How many threads now??

HoneyPablo Wed 20-Jul-11 13:26:45

How about you take the first part of the baby's dad's name and the second part of your name?

Noleen Wed 20-Jul-11 13:30:21

I know I know QueenofFeckingEverything but I'm so confused and I think I'm confusing myself more and more. I just wanted to understand why the Brits don't seem to like the name (as I'm South African) and now I think I get it. I never thought of them as chavvy. Thanks for your help everyone :-)

tummytickler Wed 20-Jul-11 13:46:11

Neither. Both awful.

MamaLazarou Wed 20-Jul-11 19:38:42

I've never heard Maxton - quite like it.

Maddex looks silly - like Maddox mis-spelt. Sorry.

PotterWatch Wed 20-Jul-11 19:39:53

How ridiculous.
