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!

Baby born. Despite much MN negativity he is Hector, and a very cute one indeed!

They are all dreadful names. The least dreadful is Clement, the most dreadful Rupert.

SteeleyeStan Mon 18-Nov-13 18:36:14

I like Rupert, the others not at all.

Mim78 Mon 18-Nov-13 16:24:54

I like Clement.

None if them are my cup of tea probably because i had a really annoying teacher called Rupert and don't like Hector, Monty's alright but if i had to choose it would be Clement (my best friend is Clementine!)

Mattissy Mon 18-Nov-13 09:36:31

I have friends Rupert and Hector. Rupert is a super cool guy. Hector is cool, the name is used more widely in Hispanic countries, he's Venezuelan. Love both names, Monty is ok too.

Clement is hideous! Lol

Hector, I love.

The others I don't like very much but in order of 'hate least' as you asked:

"None of these would work especially well outside the UK, incidentally"

Clement is a top 20 name in France and a top 100 name in Belgium.
Hector is a top 50 name in Spain.

mootime I know some people hate it when posters suggest other names, but other posters welcome it, but what about Victor ?

It's unusual enough but not trendy like Hector, sounds very similar but instead of being a verb to nag, it means ... Victor!

InTheFace Mon 18-Nov-13 03:45:39

Clement is the only one for me.

Monty - diminutive, not for a grown man unless he's a gardener or artistic

Rupert - just a bit wet, really.

Hector - ok, but fits certain personalities better than others.

None of these would work especially well outside the UK, incidentally. May be an issue for your son down the line.

Good luck for Monday, and congratulations!!

We thought about Hector, as the original Hector is a great (if tragic) hero. My only issue with it, as with Clement is that it doesn't lend itself to any shortenings (neither Hec not Clem are really very nice IMO).

I know a lovely Rupert/Rupe, so like that, Monty to me will be forever a cat, plus I don't like diminutives as given names.

Hopefully when your baby arrives (good luck!) one name will just seem right for him.

Love rupert, Hector's okay, don't like clement, and really dislike monty as my friend has a very annoying dog with this name x

Rtfairy Sun 17-Nov-13 11:54:21

Don't think the others are horrible or anything though, just not my cup of tea

Rtfairy Sun 17-Nov-13 11:51:51

Like Rupert the most, not keen on the others.

TheNunsOfGavarone Sat 16-Nov-13 20:36:25

I love Rupert and Clement but don't like Hector and Monty at all.

I love Clement and like Hector a lot.

I greatly dislike Monty and agree Rupert is a joke name.

CarryOnDancing Sat 16-Nov-13 18:44:35

I love Monty, like Clement and dislike Rupert and Hector.
