So after months of wallowing in the shit-we-have-no-ideas abyss, DH announces yesterday that he has decided that Draco is the perfect name for our little'un. He is now set on it and to be honest I'm so tired of arguing that I'm quite willing to go with it. It is quite cool. Are we mental? Shall we just call him "boy" and be done with it? Where is the tomato puree? I just don't know anymore.

Yes, it is bonkers.

Really, utterly bonkers.

FairyArmadillo Mon 19-Sep-11 17:46:44

Sorry, but I think "boy" sounds better than Draco.

LaurieFairyCake Mon 19-Sep-11 17:46:56

It is not cool - it is the name of a character from the most popular films/childrens books of all times.

And it's not a NAME - it's like Dragon misspelt or Drake misspelt.

Call him Drake (if you must) but please, not Draco.

DH went through a phase of anting to all ds1 Anakin. That was a crap* idea too.

Seriously, there are millions of names about: I have 4 boys and there are still names I would have liked to have used. You will find one.

* If the mother of the little boy alled Anakin in the park a few months abck is here sorry if I offended you but really, why?

You can't call a baby Draco, it is made up and everyone will think you are wierd for using a name from a kid's film.

How about Drake or Drew instead?

What about Dracula?

BrokenBananaTantrum Mon 19-Sep-11 17:51:41

Severus would be much better

SoupDragon Mon 19-Sep-11 17:52:20

no, it isn't cool it is bloody stupid and cruel.

MatLeaveForever Mon 19-Sep-11 18:06:12

I'm sure there was a Draco in an Australian 90's soap called Heartbreak High, can anyone else remember this or am I going mad?!

Not keen on it myself, made me think of Count Dracula.

WorzselMummage Mon 19-Sep-11 18:08:51

I think it's quite cool smile

LoveInAColdClimate Mon 19-Sep-11 18:10:00

It may be pregnancy hormones but I quite like it...

scaevola Mon 19-Sep-11 18:10:54

Draco isn't made up - he was a totally mad Roman emperor who institute one of the harshest penal codes ever (HH have done him, twice I think). Not a good association, really.

MmeLindor. Mon 19-Sep-11 18:12:45

No, it is not cool.

If you are going to take someone from Harry Potter, at least use one of the "goodies" not the meanest boy in school.

scaevola Mon 19-Sep-11 18:15:44

Any excuse for an HH link: here is Draco's Stupid Death.

i love it

but i am tempted to call my firstborn Bismarck (as in duplessy) so what do I know?

WillieWaggledagger Mon 19-Sep-11 18:17:57

or du plessis even (quick google)

MardyBra Mon 19-Sep-11 18:18:45

Mind you, Liz Hurley got away with Damien.

scaevola Mon 19-Sep-11 18:20:26

And HH again on a Draconian court room.

CalatalieSisters Mon 19-Sep-11 18:20:37

Go the whole hog and call him Voldemort. That way if you decide later that you don't like it, you can just call him He Who Shall Not Be Named.

hester Mon 19-Sep-11 18:20:59

grin thanks for the laugh but no, it is beyond the pale.

SamsungAndDelilah Mon 19-Sep-11 18:22:12

I quite like it. And Draco turned out to be not-so-bad after all.

Yeah.... No.
I'm all for the Potter love, especially Malfoy appreciation but naming your child Draco is a bit... hmm Go for drake.

Now Blaise I like he was a fine upstanding Slytherin. What about Blaise?
