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

Vernan God Little! Horrendous character in a book, it kills the name for me, sorry.
How about Vinnie or Mario or Keith? <ducks>

It's a bit of a name like Derek or Vincent or Colin imo.

Yay4may Tue 05-Feb-13 22:05:55

It's creepy. Would be nn Vern. Shudder

sunnysunnyshine Tue 05-Feb-13 04:22:23

Awful. Sorry.

I love the name Erin!

I can't get on board with Vernon though. A young Erin I know has a brother Nathaniel (Nate).

nasty relative nn Vermin

I think it could be cool. But because most of us don't know any young, cool Vernons, we tend to think of Harry Potter or other associations. These change quickly though, once we meet a lovely young Vernon!

Sorry, but it's a terrible name.

OpheliasWeepingWillow Sun 03-Feb-13 20:06:35

My D grandfather. Love it.

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

Cringe-worthy, sorry.

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

Actually, I think it might be spelt Veran

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

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

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

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

Vernon Dursley.


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

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

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

Horrid, sorry

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

Dursley. A fat, horrid, abusive man.

ithaka Sun 03-Feb-13 13:24:27

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

mamapants Sun 03-Feb-13 13:18:30

Would always think of Vernon from hp.

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.

Rhubarbgarden Sat 02-Feb-13 20:45:35

Vernon Kaye - awful.

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