I have a Myles...old family name. My grandad & cousin were also Myles'.

I decided to use the y instead of i as that is the was my grandad's name was spelt.

Miles Mitten that's just adorable! I once taught a boy called Nathan Hug - he was so sweet, you really did want to hug him!

Latin for soldier. Don't think it's particularly posh these days. Met plenty of non-posh Mileses.

Lovely name, masculine and straightforward. Very rarely heard but known.

Have a nephew Miles - he's clever and quite cool.

I don't like it, sounds posh to me, along the lines of Tarquin.

Love it, really and truly. But DP thinks it's posh too so it's a no go for us. I don't get that sense at all but obviously lots of people do.
