What do you think

LetThereBeRock Mon 15-Aug-11 20:17:53

A definite no.It sounds like a Mafia member.

LetThereBeRock Mon 15-Aug-11 20:18:26

Vincent is nicer.

redglow Mon 15-Aug-11 20:24:00

Do not like vincent.

Bunbaker Mon 15-Aug-11 20:26:21

Everyone will assume it is the abbreviation for Vincent whether you like it or not though.

redglow Mon 15-Aug-11 20:28:20

I suppose so bunbaker.

Friend was called Vincent and loathed it; after years of bullying, changed his name at around 15 to something else. Sorry.

I think the name sounds like a little thug. Its probably going to be naughty before it is born.

InstantAtom Mon 15-Aug-11 20:53:28

How about Victor instead?

tammytoby Mon 15-Aug-11 21:03:18

I like Vincent. Vinnie would be cute whilst young. I'd definately put Vincent on the bc.

No, Victor would be Vic or Vicky - not very feminine.

redglow Mon 15-Aug-11 21:14:09

How about Vinnie-jay or Vinnie-Joe

GwendolineMaryLacey Mon 15-Aug-11 21:14:36

Worse. Much worse.

Dragonwoman Mon 15-Aug-11 21:45:39

I have a Vinnie (full name Vincent on bc). People keep telling me it's a 'cool' name and he's the only one in his school, but this isn't a bad thing, the other kids seem to like his name. I still love it too.smile

redglow Mon 15-Aug-11 21:54:03

Finally somebody likes it.

Bunbaker Mon 15-Aug-11 22:13:13

No to hyphenated names. Round here they aren't thought of very highly.

exoticfruits Mon 15-Aug-11 22:21:41

Horrid.

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 15-Aug-11 23:10:41

Is it for a boy or a girl?

MumblingRagDoll Mon 15-Aug-11 23:13:53

Uber cool. Love it. DH and I had discussed it too. If we had had a boy.

acsec Mon 15-Aug-11 23:16:42

Isn't the panda on the Foxes bis-quits ads called Vinnie? Also Vinnie Jones springs to mind.

MysteriousHamster Mon 15-Aug-11 23:20:11

I love Vincent (it was on my shortlist, but not my husband's) and like Vinnie.

People will assume Vinnie is short for Vincent. And just no no no to Vinnie-Joe or Vinnie-Jay

Fisharefriendsnotfood Mon 15-Aug-11 23:24:08

What about Vince?

first1 Tue 16-Aug-11 00:12:37

Bisquits

Dragonwoman Tue 16-Aug-11 01:09:51

There is also the long form Vincenzo if you don't like Vincent. I loved the name Vinnie so much I considered Lavinia for a girl, but the 'Lav' bit put me off. Too much like lavatory!

EskimoPie Tue 16-Aug-11 07:11:47

Yup, mafia. Italian barber / greengrocer / pizzamaker..

Blatherskite Tue 16-Aug-11 07:23:09

<snort> Vinnie-Jay sounds like a euphemism for a fanjo.

PILs suggested Vincent when I was expecting DS. I absolutely loathed it. Vinnie Jones immediately sprung to mind and makes me think of thick, "hard" troublemakers.
