It started as a cute, joke name for the bump / unborn baby which is great. But it has really stuck and DH wants to call him Boris when he is born.

Its wrong isn't it?

Bizarrely I think it's a great name! But I agree it might be hard to live with (unless your DS has Russian ancestry).

You could do a "full Johnson" and call him Alexander MN Boris.

Agree Boz is awful. And no Russian ancestry (although I do have a cossack style hat somewhere which might help!)

I suppose it is different but it just seems like such a bulky name for a tiny baby!

I really like Borissmile

CaptainMartinCrieff Fri 12-Aug-11 20:29:04

I like it!

I hope one of you sees sense before the little one is born!

All you who like it would you honestly name YOUR child it though?

CaptainMartinCrieff Fri 12-Aug-11 20:35:59

Good Lord no! But if I met a little Boris I would think 'Aawwww'.

I think MrsR makes a very good point.

And what is wrong with Isaac, Hugo, Milo, Rafe, Lucas, Xavier and every other name I like and DH has vetoed I really don't know sad

Ivortheengine8 Fri 12-Aug-11 21:19:07

Oh No, please No. sad

Ivortheengine8 Fri 12-Aug-11 21:21:06

Catgirl, my DH is the same, I have reeled off lists of boys names which he doesnt like (and yet has come up with nothing himself) We have decided on a girl's name if it's a girl but I have given up with the boy's names and left it to him to come up with some!

Ivortheengine8 Fri 12-Aug-11 21:21:37

....and I am nearly 31 weeks and running out of time...

catgirl1976 Fri 12-Aug-11 21:21:49

smile we only had girls names too! but he is going to be a boy apparantly. but NOT a boy called Boris I hope!

deemented Fri 12-Aug-11 21:22:35

Boris is not a name.

It is an affliction.

Ivortheengine8 Fri 12-Aug-11 21:22:48

catgirl, say you fancy Boris Johnson and then he might change his mind grin

EdithWeston Fri 12-Aug-11 21:24:28

You could always try getting hold of "Boris the Spider" by The Who, and hope it puts him off...

LetThereBeRock Fri 12-Aug-11 22:51:07

I rather like it. I worked with a lovely three year old Boris in my childcare days,and it really suited him.

MrsRhettButler Fri 12-Aug-11 22:56:54

Oooh, there's nothing wrong with any of your suggestions catgirl I especially like Milo.

My dp is the same, he vetoed EVERY single name I came up with so I then just picked one and said 'this is what I'm going with, if you don't like it find one that we both like, I'm done looking' so he found one that I don't like but he loves and now we are at loggerheads with 'our' names.....

We have 3 weeks to sort it!

Sorry, but I just can't over that blond-haired muppet from Eton.

lagrandissima Fri 12-Aug-11 23:00:18

should have read 'get over'!

GwendolineMaryLacey Fri 12-Aug-11 23:01:27

I can't see that Boris is any sillier than Milo which is an extremely silly name.
