I have become aware that I choose marmite names so interested to hear what you think of our current short list!


I've had opinions on some before but we are still really up in the air.

Go on, let me have it!

Clement is the best. Love it. Strong, masculine and underused. Rupert is quite nice too.

Hector reminds me of the verb 'to hector', Monty is too cutesy.

They are all awful.

Monty best then Rupert (though for some reason I always want to sat woopert in a lame voice). Clement is awful, so can't say why. Hector is also don't like but can't really say why, maybe it could grow on my. Perhaps it's just not that melodic, a bit harsh. Tbh though people will get used to any of those names.

Monty Monty Monty.......I really like Monty blush

Rupert the best! The rest are horse names! However, if you have lots of cash and plan to privately educate the kid-all are fine.

I like Hector, and Clement is interesting and unexpected. Monty seems over-used now, and there's nothing wrong with Rupert but I personally find it hard to warm to as a name.

Clement! Great meaning, Attlee was a dude and Clem's a nice NN. What's not to love?

I like Rupert a bit. The others are horrible! Clement!

Sorry, none of them are really my cup of tea!

Karbea Sat 16-Nov-13 09:32:12

I like them, not sure about Clement, but like Clem.

Really love Rupert.

Not keen on the others.

Rupert is almost tolerable. Monty is a pet. Clem is a hillbilly. Hector is distant uncle in the Adams Family.
Here are my marmite names (I like, others hate): Alfred (Freddy), Edgar, Raymond.

Mumpiring Sat 16-Nov-13 09:58:21

All a bit odd but at least monty and hector will have company as thwy're more used.

lljkk Sat 16-Nov-13 10:16:25

Only one I vaguely know IRL is a 10yo Rupert. And then there's Rupert Grint. The others not at all. How many babies born today will ever hear of Clement Freud?

Leeds2 Sat 16-Nov-13 10:51:50

Don't like any of them.

My least favourite is Rupert.

RobinVanPrissy Sat 16-Nov-13 11:08:53

I like Hector. Its quirky and bit Spanish sounding.

Monty is unbelievably twee.
Rupert and Clement, I'm afraid I hate.

okthen Sat 16-Nov-13 11:11:24

Hector is the best- it's a great name in some ways- strong etc. But I can't get away from the association with the verb 'to hector'

Not keen on others unless child is going to grow up in vehhhh, vehhhh posh surroundings!

ThreeTomatoes Sat 16-Nov-13 11:12:37

I don't like any of them but if I was forced to choose one I'd choose Monty.

I know an adult Rupert who managed to get everyone to call him by his middle name instead.

Putitonthelist Sat 16-Nov-13 13:00:31

Rupert? Seriously? Sorry don't like any of your choices but if I absolutely had to choose one it would be Monty.

somewhereinessex Sat 16-Nov-13 13:07:16

Good names for dogs not boys.

scarletforya Sat 16-Nov-13 13:07:24

They are all awful and drippy. Except Clement, which is alright.

Very unmasculine set of names.

scarletforya Sat 16-Nov-13 13:09:02

Rupert is the worst, it's more or less a joke name.

TidyDancer Sat 16-Nov-13 14:44:21

They are actually all 'no way, never, over my dead body' type names for me, but Rupert is by far the best of a bad bunch. Monty in particular is very try hard.
