Not sure about Rex Rayne Wood- even Holly found it a mouthful when she just announced it on This Morning! But Rex is cool and very them.

Congratulations to her.

I love the name Rex but am perturbed that I have the same taste as Fearne Cotton.

Okay i'm going to spoil the cart! i like Fearne cotton and very pleased she's had a lovely baby boy, but "REX"just sounds like a dog's name.

Lovely. Let's hope that she takes to motherhood really well that she retires from TV/radio in fact!

Love it. You are right though. It's already getting popular. Reminds me of Bri's husband on Desparate Housewives.

I like it.

It could of been something much worse.

As for it being a so called dogs name whatever that dad's dogs are Milly and Molly. Plenty of girls running about with those names.

Farmersdaughter - but unlike Milly and Molly, the name 'REX' has very strong connections to dog's, its a popular dog's name. It's a nice name in itself but its been used in so many fictional stories (and i've met 3 Rex's all dogs)that its spoilt it a bit.

Gunz {sticks tongue out and blows a raspberry in general direction} grin

I think it's fabulous.

Lockets - i suppose the difference with that though is most of us have met a person called 'Lucy' infact loads, so it counterbalances the dog effect iyswim, probably more people called Lucy than dogs. I wonder how many people we all know called 'Rex' for me i haven't met any at all, you also mentioned you hadn't met any except ds , infact i know people who have steered away from that name simply because of its overuse for dog's.

Try googling it and see what you come up with!

It's not my cup of tea but I have heard worse.

It definitely has strong dog connotations for lots of people, however this wouldn't bother me a jot. It makes me think of a brooding, tousel haired, chisel jawed, Edwardian hero who struts around being a bit caddish to women. <fans self>

Lockets - I asked you to google it because you seemed surprised when i posted that i associate it with a dog's name. if you had just said you've known that all along but didn't care anyway wink, then i would just have accepted that, but you were making it out to seem as if i was making the whole dog association all up.

Whoever uses the name Rex that's up to them, but the thread was asking people's opinion of the name.

I don't like the 'Rayne' bit much.

Congratulations Fearne ! thanks

Bet you'll be having a peek on here at some point.

Gunznroses Thu 21-Feb-13 14:53:07

Yes you did. By you saying you had never met a dog called Rex you were indirectly insinuating that you've never heard of any such association, if you weren't you could have just said "Yes i know, but we like it".
