I LOVE this name but do you think I can't use it now with the return of Dallas?

UltraBOF Fri 19-Oct-12 22:49:45

Yes, you'll look daft.

I didn't know there was a John-Ross in Dallas as I have never seen it. Maybe others won't make the connection either?

Sleepyfergus Fri 19-Oct-12 23:00:55

Makes me think of Jonathan Ross, possibly not a good thing!

"maybe others won't make the connection"

grin omg.

Viviennemary Fri 19-Oct-12 23:02:51

I made the connection. So that's one! It's dire. Please don't.

DisappointedHorse Fri 19-Oct-12 23:04:21

Most people will think of Dallas, sorry.

sololaw Fri 19-Oct-12 23:09:22

Ok, John-Ross is off list. Bobby it is the grin

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:16:42

Saw the thread title and thought SUPER FAN!!!

DrinkFecksArseyGhosts Fri 19-Oct-12 23:16:56

Never mind Dallas. On its own it's hmm.

UltraBOF Fri 19-Oct-12 23:20:38

I like Bobby grin

JudeFawley Fri 19-Oct-12 23:22:26

I have never even seen Dallas and I made the connection!


PoppadomPreach Fri 19-Oct-12 23:22:50

What about Cliff?

TiggerWearsATriteSmile Fri 19-Oct-12 23:27:40

John is a creeps name.
Ross is good.
Bobby is good.
Cliff.... You may fall off one.

John and Ross or John and bobby or cliffross or any of these are shite.

Hope that helps!

Please don't do that to your child. Imagine the teasing at school, especially if new series Dallas takes off.

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:33:42


It's earthy.

'Do do, do dooo, do dooo do do do doooo'

I'm now stuck with the Dallas theme in my head grin

cupcake78 Sun 21-Oct-12 16:12:57

Please don't do this to your little person.

Giglet Sun 21-Oct-12 16:16:12

Squoosh grin

Never seen Dallas or heard of John-Ross so no association for me apart from that huge doctor who spider Janross or something like that.

LadyWidmerpool Sat 27-Oct-12 07:03:46

I know this is a light hearted thread but John is not a creep's name. It was the name of my dear, wonderful late FIL.

HogInABog Sat 27-Oct-12 07:09:53

I didn't make the connection. I think most people too young to have seen the original series and those who didn't want to see he new one will not make the connection. If you like it, use it.

People may ask, "oh, like Dallas?" and you can reply, "No. Never seen it".

exoticfruits Sat 27-Oct-12 07:22:00

Don't hyphen a name- they will get rid of the second part as soon as they are old enough to make the choice. Either John or Ross are fine.

MrsHBaby3 Sun 28-Oct-12 08:23:00

I have never seen Dallas but I think of Jonathon Ross. Never good
