I actually quite like it. But I somehow sense it is wrong. What do you all think? I previous choice was Otis.

I wanted to call our baby Badger. I have been overruled. I like Fox as well.

makes me think of the x files - sorry

wasnt fox the christen name of mulder in the x files?

Otis is great. Fox definitely = X Files!

SandStorm Sat 04-Feb-12 22:24:50

Another one for the X-Files I'm afraid although a new generation probably won't make the same associations. I quite like it.

Personally I prefer Wolf if you`re going for an animal theme.

Otis always makes me think of earache. smile

It could be worse!

Ooh I seen a birth announcement in our local paper today baby was xxxx fox as a middle name.

I like Fox - first thought was, how cute smile

BabyDubsEverywhere Sat 04-Feb-12 22:38:35

How about Todd..I'm sure it means Fox...

BabyDubsEverywhere Sat 04-Feb-12 22:39:17

But i have actually got Wolf on my list smile

I said recently that our 4 boys should have been Wolf, Bear, Raven and Griffin - DH was about to have me committed grin.

OP, I like Fox - cute, clever and brave.

Btw, we have very, very conventional names...

HolyNoSheDittantBatman Sat 04-Feb-12 22:43:38

No. They carry diseases and eat out of bins. If you must name your child after an animal call him Eagle or Lion or Panther or something.

I know a little boy called Fox, he's lovely though it's not a name I would have gone for.

MyGoldenNotebook Sat 04-Feb-12 22:44:10

Think I do prefer Fox to Wolf on the whole. Thanks PartialToACupOfMilo ... funnily enough Milo was on our list! Didn't realize it was a chocolatey drink till I googled just now smile

Regarding middle names - if using Fox at all, may as well go the whole hog I think (no animal pun intended)

Kayzr Sat 04-Feb-12 22:44:40

I really like Fox. Would probably use it as a middle name though.

Catsdontcare Sat 04-Feb-12 22:47:30

I have no idea why but I actually quite like it and I am very dull about names!!

Your husband sounds a bit of a beaver!

Tortington Sat 04-Feb-12 22:48:57

makes me think of a right wing media outlet

NoHunIntended Sat 04-Feb-12 22:51:58

Do it!

JoantheFennel Sat 04-Feb-12 22:57:56

I prefer wolf or bear

PopcornBiscuit Sat 04-Feb-12 23:14:45

No, sorry.

scottishmummy Sat 04-Feb-12 23:27:51

If dh like so much,he can change to Fox
It's wanky and trying too hard

For Fox sake, don't.
