What does everyone think of it?
I like the name but never met anyone with it.

Oh and "a beautiful part of the country. Ie not East london" says a lot about your attitude.
In fact, all of these comments about "naughty" names says an awful lot about the people writing them.

Absolutely horrible name, most usually found in the local sink estate, sorry

Sink estate?

What the actual fuck is wrong with you people? Seriously?

You assume everything about someone based on a name?

How familiar are you with sink estates love?

Very thanks, love. I have given my opinion, it is an awful name and as said before, associated with the sink estate residents, where once pin a time I resided before clawing myself out of said environment smile

Pretty much the first time I've ever agreed with a personal attack on here.

Excellent Friday night entertainment breaking loose I see!

If you want my opinion, although why I don't know, I like the name Tyler.

Kikibee Fri 30-Aug-13 20:49:56

Sorry didn't read the whole thread, was just asked my opinion and gave my answer, however, calling me names just shows your iq level

everlong Fri 30-Aug-13 20:53:03

Whether you read the thread or not it doesn't excuse your remark imo.

Let's face it, 99% of Americans are trailor trash chavs according to MN (sigh).
About 85% of Brits fit the Chav category, too, mind. In the minds of some, anyway.

Not prejudiced. Only ever met one Tyler. Absolutely charming, cheeky, naughty boy. Loved teaching him. What I did NOT say was fucking nightmare, common or anything else. I responded, as others have, based on my experience. (FWIW naughty is endearing, NOT a problem)

My response was tongue in cheek, in the full knowledge it would create the usual ranting, silly responses.

No longer teaching in London. Am lucky enough to teach Tyler and his mates in NW Scotland.

Although I do think, given that people DO judge based on names, it is something worth considering. I had always wanted an Edmund (nn Ned) until I moved here - bit like calling him Chav in England!

everlong Fri 30-Aug-13 21:03:04

Take no notice tantrum.

Probably not that easy I know.

Tyler was my first choice for DS now 19. Pretty much as an homage to Wat Tyler, leader of the Peasants Revolt. I remember I was also very keen on Dylan, being a big fan of Bob. DP talked me out of both in favour of one of those slightly bland safe names that a member of the Royal family might use. I am still quite regretful.

But Hamlet is people judging on name a given? I don't. Lots of other people on this thread don't.

HamletsSister Fri 30-Aug-13 21:10:05

Naughty does not mean EVIL. It means a bit of a pain but made me smile. At least that is what it means in my staff room. Fucking that's a whole other thread.

And I have been on these threads for years MrsDV and knew exactly what the responses would be.

Also, if someone asks for an opinion (and we were asked) how is it rude to offer one?

HamletsSister Fri 30-Aug-13 21:11:47

Nor do I. 'twas tongue in cheek. If I did judge on names then my worst ever nightmare was a Matthew, closely followed by a Melissa. So M names would be out ( I am an M myself!)

I see the twats are out in force on this thread.
