Id think.....Sherlock Holmes!

Abouttime Wed 27-Feb-13 20:42:09

I also like it & would be interested to know if the op used it.

FeijoaVodkaAndCheezels Wed 27-Feb-13 19:26:45

OP had slight hairy knuckles. She won't be back to update, so no point dragging this back up again.

I'd pity him. Or (even more) her.

xigris Wed 27-Feb-13 19:22:01

I really like it!

MrsMc82 Wed 27-Feb-13 19:20:53

thats parents were a bit loopy!!

rockinhippy Wed 27-Feb-13 10:40:50

I'd think the parents were a bit bonkers, but cool enough not to give a flying one about others opinions - can't say I like it as a name though, bit NN Mori is quite nice smile

MyHeadWasInTheSandNowNot Wed 27-Feb-13 10:29:25

Yes - would love an update on this one grin

Rockchick1984 Wed 27-Feb-13 10:24:26

Where I live Moriarty would get shortened to Mozza grin

anonymosity Wed 27-Feb-13 03:14:41

I like it but it would be shortened to Mori which I like less. Maybe Arty?

ChristineDaae Tue 26-Feb-13 23:50:38

Oh I read that as Mortuary!

montmartre Tue 26-Feb-13 22:54:54

Isn't Moriarty his surname?
I do know a Mycroft however...

Have you had it yet dinosaurs?

williaminajetfighter Sun 06-Jan-13 18:30:07

I like it shortened to Mori or Maury ad in Maury povich. Sadly!

enjay0811 Sun 06-Jan-13 18:26:31

Despite the harsh comments, I really like moriarty! Unusual but one of those names tht u jst get used to and cldnt imagine calling dc anything else! Go with it if u love it.

copyandpaste Mon 24-Dec-12 03:52:04

I'd think, wow pretty unusual name there! But tbh they would probably shorten it and once you get used to someone it just becomes their name doesn't it? I don't think many people are 'saddled' by a name, personality is personality!

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sat 22-Dec-12 14:00:47

I would think you had lost your marbles grin

As if Moriarty wasn't bad enough, you want to shorted it to Murray? Murry - FFS woman, get a grip!

<well, you did ask>

My cousin is a huge Irish farmer known as Patsy!
I wouldn't be the one to tease him!!

Moriarty sounds very poncey (sorry)

WantAnOrange Sat 22-Dec-12 09:14:47

DD's nickname is Arty and no-one assumes her name is Arthur wink. We often call her Arty Farty though, because she is!

miffybun73 Fri 21-Dec-12 20:47:01

Also, I absolutely adore Paddy too.

miffybun73 Fri 21-Dec-12 20:46:24

I absolutely love it, but not sure that I'd be brave enough to go for it myself.

CaHoHoHootz Fri 21-Dec-12 19:31:58

confused Artie shock in Artie Fartie. I don't think so......

lljkk Fri 21-Dec-12 17:02:06

Guess Artie is okay, but then all will assume his proper name is Arthur.

lljkk Fri 21-Dec-12 17:01:47

I'd be looking around for a cat not a child, tbh.
I can't think of any NNs I'd like for it, either.

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Fri 21-Dec-12 16:56:48

I'm sorry but I think it's dreadful, I feel for the poor child - life's hard enough...

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 21-Dec-12 16:49:01

Paddy is a great name ! I have never heard of Ruairi bring a Protestant name though.
