Lucius for a boy??

ImpyCelyn Thu 11-Aug-11 12:24:45

Prefer Lucian.

But it's not bad.

SoupDragon Thu 11-Aug-11 12:26:23

As in Lucius Malfoy? Whilst it isnt bad, i wouldn't use it at this time, no.

cece Thu 11-Aug-11 12:27:22

Prefer Luke myself.

EdithWeston Thu 11-Aug-11 12:28:31

I really like it - but did think "Malfoy"

rachel1970 Thu 11-Aug-11 12:59:01

Nice name (and much nicer and less overused than Luke imo!) but it does remind me of Lucifer.

IslaValargeone Thu 11-Aug-11 13:00:45

I think the boy from Gladiator, I love it.

Awomancalledhorse Thu 11-Aug-11 13:03:35

LOVE it.
Doesn't go with our surname though, boo.
Use it for me!! grin

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 13:28:19

Just asked DP and he doesn't like it!!!! BOO sad

I love it but it has drawbacks. Older boys may think it sissy (you would have to ask some to be sure), it's a character in Harry Potter and the HP stories are going nowhere, they are cultural staples now, and the most obvious shortening is to Lucy- a girls name.

no, too like lucifer.

lucien is better, but very feminine sounding.

Bandwithering Thu 11-Aug-11 13:34:57

what about Marcus or Roscoe

they seem kind of in the same vein but a bit more HWOAR tough. [ahem]

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 11-Aug-11 13:35:57

Like it but prefer Luke or Lucas.

harassedandherbug Thu 11-Aug-11 13:40:31

I like it, but would worry about HP links.

I love Lucas, and it's on my list (although dh hates all my list!).

I like it, I know a 6 year old Lucius

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 14:14:26

It gets an 8.5 out of 10 from me but my DP won't budge.
Unfortunately he has no other suggestions and seems to have lost all his imagination when he does come up with some.

piano10 Thu 11-Aug-11 14:19:09

Lucius is really nice..
reminds me of the little boy in the film Gladiator 1

harassedandherbug Thu 11-Aug-11 14:32:04

Renaissance mine is exactly the same! So far he's come up with Rio, Harvey and Ronnie...... <sigh> He hates all of mine except Dillon and Max, which are ok. Just an unenthusiastic ok. Shame he can't come up with any other allegedly better suggestions!

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 14:50:10

Glad it's not just me with that problem harassedandherbug!! Mine has come up with Byron, Kevin, and Tim BUT nothing else and everything I suggest is a NO!
Totally useless! smile

I think your DH has just saved your DS from a lifetime of teasing wink

How many baby books have you got?

IslaValargeone Thu 11-Aug-11 14:59:00

Kevin! Oh god

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 14:59:18

Why would my DS get a lifetime of teasing from Lucien? and you really think I haven't saved him from a lifetime of teasing by saying no to BYRON???!!! confused

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 14:59:58

I know JustFiveMinutesHAHAHA!!!! I had to put my foot down with DP's suggestions!
