I hadn't heard of it before, but her and her DH apparently both mentioned it in the same night!? Is it a character name in something?

Never heard of it before, can't say I like it. What about Dashiell?

JollyJackOLantern Fri 26-Oct-12 19:20:04

Sounds like one of santa's reindeer gone wrong

StrawberryMojito Fri 26-Oct-12 19:20:55

Not keen.

Aracsmum Fri 26-Oct-12 19:21:28

Sounds like a mash up of Dennis and Gnasher .... Awful

ATourchOfInsanity Fri 26-Oct-12 19:30:55

Dashiell - will put that to them. Jolly I have to say I did think the same and asked her to spell it carefully to me. Not my cup of tea, but it sounds as though it is a character in a sci-fi thing they might watch or something, so I was wondering if it is a cult viewing thing...have no idea on that front.

Google tells me James Dashner is an author smile

Not a fan at all I'm afraid.

Trills Fri 26-Oct-12 20:43:32

That doesn't sound like it is a name to me.

Dasher and dancer and prancer and vixen...

GobblersKnob Fri 26-Oct-12 20:43:55

Dashner and Dancer and Donna and Blitzen.......

GobblersKnob Fri 26-Oct-12 20:44:33

dashner makes me think santa reindeer
dashiell wasnt that minority report

LivingInAGoldBubble Fri 26-Oct-12 20:58:23

Got to the end of the thread and realised I was whistling jingle bells, I think it sounds like a reindeer too, sorry.

ATourchOfInsanity Fri 26-Oct-12 20:58:27

Is Dashiell from The Incredibles? The little boy?

scottishmummy Fri 26-Oct-12 21:01:46

dashiell was a baldy pre-cog in minority report who sees murder as an intrusive visual hallucination
not a great name for a baby
unless you like a name associated with baldy hallucinating tank life

VirginiaDare Fri 26-Oct-12 21:03:17

Not a name.

PickledFanjoCat Sat 27-Oct-12 14:09:53

Sorry I don't like it very much!

For short he would be dash and I think that's a bit odd.

DeeMonic Sat 27-Oct-12 14:15:12

Sounds like one of Santa's reindeer...

AThingInYourLife Sat 27-Oct-12 14:16:37

It makes me laugh.
