Harris yah or nay ?

I don't think the slang for arse is in widespread use, but it is definitely known IYSWIM, so I wouldn't use this name if I were in SE England.

Thing is, if you like it then go for it. No one on here likes my DS's name apart from one or two

I like it.

Harrison is nicer

Chivetalking Sat 23-Nov-13 17:10:06

Slang for arse so nay.

I like it. It's a quite popular Muslim name (spelt with one r) as well as the Scottish connection.

Rhyming slang for bum.

I love it however it is now racing up the charts in popularity in Scotland. I know 3 !

squoosh Fri 22-Nov-13 10:38:33

Not for me.

Island names are popular at the moment but I'm not a fan of this one.

Hmm not keen.

Thanks for opinions I love it but dh isn't convinced, We are Scottish forgot to put that, didn't even connect it with Rolf Harris that is off putting.

I'm Scottish and agree that there are nicer Scottish names. I'm afraid I reall don't like Harris for a name.

I agree that it's fine, but that there are nicer Scottish names, including place-type names, than Harris.

If you use it though you could take him to visit the Isle of Harris which is gorgeous - I know because I lived there for 10 years!!

Not since Rolf ruined it.

girliefriend Fri 22-Nov-13 09:40:48

I like it, prefer Harry though.

I like it I know two boys called Harris.

UriGeller Fri 22-Nov-13 09:04:53

Nay. Nay. And thrice nay.

HyvaPaiva Fri 22-Nov-13 09:03:45

It's a surname, it's a product (tweed), it sounds like London slang for arse, it's not a pleasant 'sound' as a name. I'm Scottish and like cloggal think there are plenty of beautiful Scottish names. To me, this really, really isn't one of them.

chimchar Fri 22-Nov-13 09:00:36

my first response was Rolf.

not keen, sorry.

cloggal Fri 22-Nov-13 08:58:54

I'm Scottish but I genuinely think there are far nicer Scottish names if that's what you're after. Not bad, but not great.

MorgauseIsNotBlinking Fri 22-Nov-13 06:44:00

Nay - my immediate response was "Tweed".
