Just that really.

I think I like it for a baby or young child but not sure its OK for a grown man?

Just wondered what people thought

Well he once tried to fix a clock for Max but i think he made it worse.

(I think it's lovely for a little boy or a grown man)

I would know more older man ie 70+ Milos than little boy ones smile I always think of it as a granda name but I think that's just regional.

I like it a lot.

Nice name.

IMO Milo sounds like a dogs name,sorry...

But if I picture a little boy in my mind then I have to admit it would be lovely name and suit well smile But if I picture a fully grown man in his 30s-40s with that name? Not so much,don't think I'd take him seriously or trust him if he was a lawyer or trying to sell me a car for example...don't know why,think its probably because I associate the name with dogs...I'd trust him if he was a vet called Milo though....that's probably not much help but that's my honest opinion xx

Could always change to Miles when older, but I think it's fine!

I just think of the tweenies but there will be quite a few adult Milo's around in 20 yrs time so I doubt it will be much of a problem!

It worked well enough for the adult Milos of the ancient world. Milo of Croton was an Olympic boxer from southern Italy. Titus Annius Milo was a Roman politician/gang leader.

the 22 year old Milo I know seems fine.
