Any thoughts? Not keen on Wilfred, simply Wilf.

I really like it. I know one.

I LOVE Wilf!!!

Is it becoming a bit trendy?

I like it. At school we do use WILF to share the learning objective expectations. 'What I'm Looking For' so it does remind me of that.

I've heard some people say Wilf is used a as a term meaning a bit of a wally. Maybe a regional thing? Not heard of it down in these parts (Southwest). Haven't met another, and don't think it's one of those names that will be suddenly become hugely popular (although you never know!).

Feedback from friends and family hasn't been great, but I really don't care. Am surprised really, I think it's one of the coolest names ever!

I like it. My granda was called wilf or wilfie by his older sister...his name was william..

I think it's very trendy and hip. I love it smile I know of 3 little Wilfs but they are all Wilfred.

I love it.

But I ambiased, cos it is BIL's (and DS's godfather's) name.

So it always makes me smile when I see it.

I love it. I know one 3 year old Wilf (although he is called Wilfred and does get called that sometimes too, I also like that) and I think it is very cool!

I love Wilfred with the nn Wilf, it is a fabulous name.

And the Wilf who is an older son of a Mnetter is wonderful, a brilliant character who is gorgeous and loving and always makes me smile and I love hearing a out him.

Quite a few little ones in these parts. The new Alfie perhaps?

I don't like it, sorry. Takes the "old man" trend too far. Would be slightly better with Wilfred as full name.

Wilf - awful.
Wilfred - beyond awful.

Everlong Sat 15-Oct-11 21:20:30

I love Wilf it's cool and understated.

babybumblebeee Sat 15-Oct-11 21:39:28

I agree that it could soon be as popular as Alfie!

PavlovtheWitchesCat Sat 15-Oct-11 21:41:14
