Not even pregnant so can't blame hormones but I love Spike. Discuss!!

I love it. I know a grown up Spike, it's not his nickname.

Sounds very much more like a nickname than a proper name.

Yy Buffy. You'll need to buy your Spike a long leather coat grin

Seriously, I know a cute little 2-year-old Spike and while there were eyebrows raised at the time, by now it's just his name.

It's great - for a bulldog.

I used to work for a Spike. Not a nickname, perfectly acceptable bona fide name. He was (is!) a quiet, gentle man and yet it didn't seem at all incongruous.

I think it's a fabulous name.

I work with a Spike - he's a very respectable senior scientist in his (?)late 40s. As far as I know, it's his real name and nobody has ever batted an eyelid at it smile. (Academia may not be representative of workplaces in general, though...)

It is a very cool name.

It was a serious contender had I had a boy.

I absolutely love it, but then again wouldn't use it myself as I'm not brave enough.

My children both have very traditional, some might say, "boring" names, Daniel and Emily smile

As very small squeak says, it is very cool smile
