Honest opinions please.

Dontletthemgetyoudown Sun 09-Feb-14 15:48:54

It's nice enough. Although usually just shortened to Harry. I know two Harrison's and both are Harry one is 12 and the other 4.

Middleagedmotheroftwo Sun 09-Feb-14 15:51:50

No. Would be considered chavvy round here.

Bowlersarm Sun 09-Feb-14 15:53:54

Not a fan. Harry is much nicer.

Dontletthemgetyoudown Sun 09-Feb-14 15:54:04

The older Harrison I know comes from the least 'chavvy' family I could think of. Certainly not the case here. (Berkshire)

grabaspoon Sun 09-Feb-14 15:55:14

Not a fan most Harrys/Harrisons I know have a reputation as being naughty/a handful - and I know a lot of them

jazzcat28 Sun 09-Feb-14 15:57:37

Which area are you in middleaged?

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 09-Feb-14 15:58:11

I like it for Harrison Ford but when I hear it here in the UK I tend to think it's a bit, well, a bit out of place?

Also there is a nice young man called it at our local shop and every time I see his name badge it makes me think of hedgehogs.

Sorry blush

as in 'herisson'

Hmm it's actually DHs favoured name from our short list. I am pretty traditional in my tastes and love Thomas. Other name which we both kind of like is Leo.

ELCS next week so need to decide!

tassisssss Sun 09-Feb-14 16:11:06

Love love love it.

Would have been used for Dd1 and dd2

I'm in scotland and don't know any Harrisons and very few Harrys...

bzoo Sun 09-Feb-14 16:12:47

I have one. We aren't chavvy hmm

Sammie101 Sun 09-Feb-14 16:15:11

Love it! My godson is called Harrison (although does get Harry most of the time) and he is the most beautiful, cheeky little boy in the world! And I don't see it as chavvy at all smile

bzoo Sun 09-Feb-14 16:15:55

We spell it Harison though. smile

I know one who graduated from a top university, having boarded, and is now a professional rugby union player.

Pretty much the opposite of chav.

Leeds2 Sun 09-Feb-14 16:25:40

Prefer Harry.

DownstairsMixUp Sun 09-Feb-14 16:28:28

It's seen as a "chavvy" name to a few people i know round here to confused (kent) I like the name! My friend has one, they are not the slighest bit chavvy.

Rooners Sun 09-Feb-14 16:30:10

I think it is seen as chavvy because of the aspirational thing - you know, limited cultural knowledge, named after a very popular actor, sort of thing.

Does it have a meaning?

jazzcat28 Sun 09-Feb-14 16:32:05

No meaning or significance but just a name DH loves.

BirthdayMuppet Sun 09-Feb-14 16:41:54

Soooo boring, probably the most over used 'trend' name for boys in the last decade. Leo on the other hand is wonderful.

clary Sun 09-Feb-14 16:44:01

All the Harrisons I know (quite a few - I teach secondary) are known as Harry.

There are a lot of Harrys. One in most classes I teach. Only beaten by Josh. Both lovely names tho.

granof3 Sun 09-Feb-14 16:58:36

Not all Harrisons are that young. My hubby inherited this name from his grandfather. If I had a son I would have carried on the tradition.

bzoo Sun 09-Feb-14 17:19:51

I haven't come across another Harison at all!

FlirtingFail Sun 09-Feb-14 17:24:25

I have only met one - he is one of the nicest boys I know. And comes from a very arty boho family.
