Love it. Very cute but also would suit a grown man. Great name.

Riddo Thu 06-Feb-14 22:56:25

I love it and it's great with Henry.

That's ace, wish I'd heard that before my wee man was born 6 weeks ago! X

I knew a Wilf. Child of a friend of a friend and he was ace! Lovely name.

Wow brilliantly positive responses so far, thank you!

I really don't like it, reminds me of a horrible old man I used to know. confused

I love it. Thought Henry and Wilfi is a lovely match for brother and sister.

Dreadful name, all the nice names you could have? Could you imagine when you were in your teens meeting a good looking fella and his name was Wilf? Awful.

Ridiculous objection I know but it was the first thing that came in to my head so thought of share - makes me think of the (unpleasant) acronym MILF (in case you don't know it, delightfully stands for mother I'd like to F!?k). Stupid I know but was my first thought...

I genuinely think Wilfred/Wilf is one of the most awful names you could possibly inflict on someone.

ZingSweetApple Fri 07-Feb-14 10:55:24

Isn't it a bit like MILF?

never, horrible name

weaselinthenight Fri 07-Feb-14 20:55:50

Loving the fact some think it's the best name ever, while others 'one of the most awful names you could possibly inflict on someone' !! Hilarious.

Wilf and Henry make an adorable sibset. I love the name Wilf!

Morgause Fri 07-Feb-14 21:01:31

I couldn't use it, my friend has a Jack Russell called Wilf, so it will always be a doggy name to me.

DitsyDonkey Fri 07-Feb-14 21:02:52

Weasel isn't it better that it evokes extreme reactions rather than being unremarkable!

manicinsomniac Fri 07-Feb-14 23:36:06

I don't like it at all. To me it is an old man's name. But those are back in fashion so I'm sure it won't seem like one to that generation at all.

ThursdayLast Fri 07-Feb-14 23:40:29

Love it. And I love all baby Wilf's I've meet recently grin

No where near as nice as Henry.

They'd be always wondering why they got the horrid old man name!
