Do we like ?
Have DD Phoebe - is it too close ?

Faverolles Sat 29-Sep-12 21:27:38

Lovely name smile

BonnieBumble Sat 29-Sep-12 21:27:44

I'm not keen. Makes me think of the Harry Enfield sketch.

DorsetKnob Sat 29-Sep-12 21:28:01

I am so sorry but the first thing that springs to mind is Kevin.

BonnieBumble Sat 29-Sep-12 21:32:40

What about Piran?

ALittleBitOfMagic Sat 29-Sep-12 21:34:36

How would I pronounce piran ?

Didnt even think at all of the Harry Enfield association ! I was quite young when that was about grin

mayanna123 Sat 29-Sep-12 21:36:55

I love Perry! Lovely and could be short for Peregrine.

Goes very well with Phoebe imo.

RTchoke Sat 29-Sep-12 21:37:58

I think for anyone over 30 Perry will always be "Kevin and..."

Phoebe is a lovely classy name and I'm afraid I don't think Perry is either of those things.

Kevin and Perry here too, sorry.

Otherwise I'm sure it might be fine.

No Idea who Kevin is in relation to Perry...?! I don't like Kevin though!

omfgkillmenow Sat 29-Sep-12 21:40:13

is he a platypus? super cool dude

allagory Sat 29-Sep-12 21:40:45

Oh. I thought Grayson Perry. He is always interesting.

ALittleBitOfMagic Sat 29-Sep-12 21:41:05

I'm 26 and I know of kevin and perry and have seen the film but was too young to really bother with it .

Titsalinabumsquash Sat 29-Sep-12 21:41:27

Love it!

Although my child addled mind can't help but sing "Perry, perry the platypus" but that's purely because I've been made to watch all episodes of Phineas and Ferb approximately 8,459776 times. grin

BonnieBumble Sat 29-Sep-12 21:41:44

Piran is pronounced Peran.

ALittleBitOfMagic Sat 29-Sep-12 21:42:29

Oh I didn't think of platypus either !!! Now I'm really liking it though love perry the platypus !!! grin and so does DD grin

birdofthenorth Sat 29-Sep-12 21:42:40

Would have said yes before Little Mix -the good looking Geordie girl is called Perry (or is it Perrie?) so will probably spawn more female Perries?

Other than that I quite like it and had forgotten about Kevin And.

tammytoby Sat 29-Sep-12 21:46:15

Perry is lovely! I know one (think he's officially a Peregrine).

storminabuttercup Sat 29-Sep-12 21:48:08

I like perry, my first thought was JJ from dawsons creek!

HaggisMcNeeps Sat 29-Sep-12 21:48:36

It's lovely.

evamummy Sat 29-Sep-12 21:50:50

I like Peregrine or Perry alot and think it goes well with Pheobe.

PigletJohn Sat 29-Sep-12 23:04:22

Kevin is worse

fishcalledwonder Sat 29-Sep-12 23:08:25

Sorry, Kevin and Perry here too.

BackforGood Sat 29-Sep-12 23:33:33

Yeah - Kevin and Perry here.
Nor do I like what I consider to be surnames being used as first names.
