As a boy's name...?
What might it get shortened to?

gertrudestein Fri 29-Mar-13 12:09:26

Also, Thorin?

Oakenshield grin

HorryIsUpduffed Fri 29-Mar-13 12:43:50

Oakenshield, yes.

That aside, I'm not convinced. I think it is quite sensitive as boys' names go.

I love Torin, it's one of the few names I've got on my list for a second boy. I can't imagine it being shortened though - Tor is the only logical place for it to go.

Different. ....think I like it.

hmm yes, have just googled the Hobbit connection ... DP will probably be impressed but me, not so much.

Am worried that it might be shortened to Tory which would make me want to kill someone

I knew a Taran and a Thane.
Thorin (apart from Oakenshield) could be shortened to Thor.

DessieLou Fri 29-Mar-13 20:04:56

I'm not sure it would get shortened really. I know a Torran who is just Torran. :-)

Cakethrow Fri 29-Mar-13 20:20:56

I love it too, although I would never shorten it.
(I have a little boy called Torran though so am biased.)

soontobeslendergirl Fri 29-Mar-13 20:22:29

I know a Torin - it's always Torin.

It's a lovely name and not shortened for the one I know.

aufaniae Sat 30-Mar-13 03:39:25

Lovely name smile I guess it'd be shortened to Tor?

bigbluebump Sat 30-Mar-13 07:41:20

Torin is a great name! I know one who is always Torin - no need to shorten imo.

devonsmummy Sat 30-Mar-13 07:42:44

I know a Toran - gets called Tozza or Toz

BlueFishWonder Sat 30-Mar-13 07:46:12

Lovely name, also love Tarrin.

shallweshop Sat 30-Mar-13 07:49:42

I like it and would guess Tor would a possible shortened version.

I too thought Torrid. Sorry.

BoringTheBuilder Sat 30-Mar-13 19:03:05

Didn't read the thread but sounds like a car name. Or even a pushchair name. Sorry

delilah88 Sat 30-Mar-13 20:01:54

No. Sounds like Torrid.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 31-Mar-13 00:23:47

Don't really like it, it sounds made up.

Selks Sun 31-Mar-13 00:30:18

Fab name

I knew a Torran at school, he was always Torran it wasn't ever shortened. I like it smile
