... for a boy ?

Not a name I'd choose, but nothing wrong with it IYSWIM.

susiedaisy Tue 20-Sep-11 21:40:43

More of a surname IMO

usualsuspect Tue 20-Sep-11 21:42:07

I know a Floyd ,nice name I like it

Kirstle Tue 20-Sep-11 21:44:17

great - I cant think of any potential life-scarring possibly bullying connotations either, which is always a plus. (Although I know that they can pick on something other than a name)
Thanks so far.

Makes a refreshing change from all the little Fins/Finns around, I guess.

No.It's ghastly.

hulabula Tue 20-Sep-11 22:00:24

I don't mind it - it doesn't bother me. Can't see what is 'ghastly' about it though shock?

Pink

Its ok. Floyd the Barber jumps in to my head immediately though. (Nirvana song)

Kirstle Wed 21-Sep-11 09:45:25

Nothing ghastly about it at all smile but that is someone elses opinion I suppose. Never heard of Floyd the Barber and if Pink Floyd is the only "bad" connotation, then I think we are ok smile
whoop!
On the shortlist it goes....

I say it's ghastly because I think it's a horrid name. We were asked for opinions and I gave mine.

It also makes me think of the hurricane.

Drunk tv cook.

minipie Wed 21-Sep-11 11:23:51

I think of Keith Floyd, so not keen.

What about Lloyd?

hulabula Wed 21-Sep-11 12:03:46

Hurricane confused

Drunk TV cool confused

I wouldn't choose Flynn personally but it doesn't bother me and I'm sure once people meet your Flynn, they'll start to associate his name with him (rather than hurricanes of drunk tv characthers smile.)

hulabula Wed 21-Sep-11 12:04:09

sorry, cook (not cool) blush

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 21-Sep-11 12:13:31

I like to think (having never actually met my father) that Keith Floyd was my dad. It's a shame he's dead as I think we'd have got on like a house on fire.

I'm not sure about Floyd as a first name though.

As you were.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 21-Sep-11 12:14:06

I am aware that this makes me sound unhinged btw. I can assure you that I am quite sane grin

My partner loves that name but I can't stand it. I couldn't even bring myself to let him name our dog Floyd. No particular reason why though!
