For a boy. Or is it just me? Thoughts please

JohnnyUtah Sun 23-Jun-13 19:40:01

I expect he would be a very CLEAN boy grin

I thought you meant for a sterilising fluid, then noticed i was in baby names... Sorry.

As in the baby cleaning spray? ;-)

LeoTheLateBloomer Sun 23-Jun-13 19:41:09

Says sterilising to me too! Sorry.

I immediately thought of sterilising tablets - sorry! How about Miller?

Fuzzysnout Sun 23-Jun-13 19:42:29

Milton fluid. No, sorry.
How about Dettol (or is that a girl's name?)

Makes me think of Milton Jones, very funny comedian!

I thought there was a Simpsons character with that name, but just realised it's Millhouse blush

HoneyandRum Sun 23-Jun-13 19:43:52

Isn't Bart Simpson's nerdy friend called Milton?

Makes me think of rough area in Glasgow.

Not sure that calling a person after a sterilising solution is a very good idea.

Could lead to intense teenage bullying re shooting blanks etc. Sorry

FriskyHenderson Sun 23-Jun-13 19:45:55

I would think Jones or Liquid.

I actually quite like it, the first thing that comes into my mind is John Milton, and also the fairly famous showjumping horse Milton. Although neither of these are great associations either, I suppose.

Makinglists Sun 23-Jun-13 19:47:16

Sorry - as soon as I saw the thread title I thought 'milton fluid'. Could be an ok name if you could get away from these associations.

Numberlock Sun 23-Jun-13 19:47:48

I assumed it was as in John Milton...

EleanorFarjeon Sun 23-Jun-13 19:48:02

I would immediately think of John Milton.

I quite like it.

k2togm1 Sun 23-Jun-13 19:50:20

I like it, because of Milton

HoneyandRum Sun 23-Jun-13 19:50:30

It seems a bit wet to me, I prefer Miller.

zingally Sun 23-Jun-13 19:55:04

A disinfectant. Sorry!

No, sorry.

Simpson's friend is millhouse.

Milton is sterilising fluid, shabby place in Kent (Milton Regis) and of course the lovely Milton Keynes.

50shadesofbrown Sun 23-Jun-13 20:06:59

Smells like bleach. (unhelpful)

Oh dear. Back to the drawing board!

Tickledyellow Sun 23-Jun-13 21:51:19

Feel really bad for you! But almost anything would be better than Milton! Nowt wrong with Ben or Sam! Also most kids actually like to have a pretty normal name, especially boys apparently.
