I am watching Splash and suddenly thought Vernon would be a cool name for a boy, what do you think?

Why not? Can't think of any silly nicknames he may be called, so go ahead if you like it.

Do you think it "goes" with my DD's name which is Erin?

The terrible uncle in Harry Potter and the contemptible Vernon Kaye.

Please don't do it to your baby.

I have never read the Harry Potter books or seen the films and I love Vernon Kay smile

The motto of the Vernon family is ver non semper viret: the Spring does not always flourish.

Vernon Kaye - awful.

Just no. Vernon's is a gambling site. Anyone over 35 would recognise that. Vernon's pool. And Vernon was Liz McDonald's waster bloke in Coronation Street.

Would always think of Vernon from hp.

I know someone married to a vile man called Vernon - we call him 'Vermin', enough said.

OkayHazel Sun 03-Feb-13 16:11:31

Dursley. A fat, horrid, abusive man.

buttercrumble Sun 03-Feb-13 16:15:21

Horrid, sorry

Mrsrobertduvall Sun 03-Feb-13 16:21:03

Reminds me of a fifties fairground worker with a greasy quiff.

NymphadoraTonks Sun 03-Feb-13 19:20:17

Vernon Dursley.


PartyFops Sun 03-Feb-13 19:44:27

I used to know a vernon and he was often nick named Vermin

derektheladyhamster Sun 03-Feb-13 19:47:49

How about Veron? I know one who's 12 (and lovely)

derektheladyhamster Sun 03-Feb-13 19:53:25

Actually, I think it might be spelt Veran

lljkk Sun 03-Feb-13 20:05:25

Cringe-worthy, sorry.
