What do we think? <awaits worst>

Love It!! Be sure to impart to him that noone can be trusted, only steel! Epic name grin

I have a friend who is determined to call her hypothetical future child this.

Her inspiration is Arthur Conan Doyle but her partner keeps yelling 'barbarian barbarian barbarian' every time she brings it up.

She remains undeterred.

It is a pleasant sounding name. I'd go for it if you love it.

Sorry, but the first word that came to mind was barbarian.

BustersOfDoom Tue 20-Nov-12 23:48:59

No. But just so long as you realise that 90% of people will add "the barbarian" to it and imagine Arnie in leather pants and a headband.

Don't listen to these naysayers: Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women.

Are you wearing leather pants and a headband dashoflime? grin

dashoflime Wed 21-Nov-12 00:18:32

Yes, and turning a giant wheel, silently plotting vengence on those who have killed my mother. OP: Could you try praying to Mitra for guidance. Or Crom, if you have the tongue for it

ThePathanKhansWitch Wed 21-Nov-12 00:21:32

Not keen tbh.

IHeartKingThistle Wed 21-Nov-12 00:42:04

Ooh, never thought of it, quite like it.

DH had a previously wild pet Vole that he named Conan. Conan used to pee on hs hand.

OverlyWordyHurdyGurdy Wed 21-Nov-12 06:12:39


Ah, it's another of DH's suggestions. I actually think its a nice name, but yes I do mentally add in 'the barbarian' every time I hear it.

dashoflime, thanks for channeling the leather pants grin.

I like it, but agree it will eternally be suffixed by 'the barbarian'.

Connell? Conran? Cullen? Other similar Scottish alternatives.

dashoflime Wed 21-Nov-12 12:39:29

HTH For what its worth, I love that film and Conan sounds good to me.
I would probably steer clear if it was me, but then I also turned down DH's heroic pictish suggestions of Gartnait, Alpin and Nechtan grin

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 21-Nov-12 15:36:49

I think Conan Doyle personally...not barbarian.

I rather like it.

As an aside what does HTH stand for?! Haven been trying to work it out for ages <blushing in advance at presumably missing the obvious>

Anonymumous Wed 21-Nov-12 16:45:42

Conan The Barbarian. Hope That Helps! smile

OverlyWordyHurdyGurdy Wed 21-Nov-12 18:10:13

Dash, still chuckling over your earlier comments grin

anniewoo Wed 21-Nov-12 18:17:25

Barbarian or.......... even worse Conehead!

MistyB Wed 21-Nov-12 18:18:43

Conan Mac an Liath Luachra springs to my mind, but I am Irish and loved the old Fianna stories! info here.
