What do you think don't be too mean smile x

NickNacks Sun 09-Feb-14 17:31:02

I don't like it at all, I'm sorry.

Rommell Sun 09-Feb-14 17:33:35

I've never heard it (as a first name) before but now I am hearing it I think it's great. Puts me in mind of the nice kind of preppy all-American schoolboy who gets on with everyone and is good at sport but not an arsehole about it. A name for a winner, in short.

Dreadful beyond belief. And that's pulling my punches.

Clayton Farlow; was he out of Dynasty or Dallas?

alemci Sun 09-Feb-14 17:38:01

Clayton Farlow in Dallas - Howard Keel. Makes me think of a grey old man or an American. sorry hope I don't sound mean smile

I know of a few grown-up Claytons.

One prefers to go by the name Clayt because he hates his name.

I used to work with a Clayton. I wouldn't use it as name, he was mercilessly ribbed for it by his colleagues in what was quite a formal working environment, and I can only imagine it must gave been much worse at school.

Nice as a last name. Not great as a first name.

Don't think it'd be easy to be too mean. It's truly bloody awful. And a small village on the outskirts of Bradford.

I met a baby Clayton about 7 yrs ago & I didn't like it then, either (sorry). I keep thinking of the annoying hunter in the modern Disney Tarzan movie.

Thanks Rommel x

Sammie101 Sun 09-Feb-14 17:48:39

I don't like it at all, but who cares what other people think, it's what you and your partner think that matters!

rusmum Sun 09-Feb-14 17:50:41

I know a clay and a Clayton both under -

honeybeeridiculous Sun 09-Feb-14 17:56:19

I once worked with a Clayon, handsome chap but sorry, don't like the name

As long as your surname isn't West.

Pointeshoes Sun 09-Feb-14 18:12:32

' Huh huh. ' . . .reminds me of the Simpsons character cleatus.

Mummabear12 Sun 09-Feb-14 18:13:05

Haha no it definitely isn't west x

NadiaWadia Mon 10-Feb-14 04:29:08

Why? Clayton is a middle aged American blue collar worker or postman (mailman?)

There is nothing nice about it at all. Please give your son a proper name.

Madamecastafiore Mon 10-Feb-14 04:43:53

Having to stuck my fist in my mouth not to be really mean.

It's vile.

Morgause Mon 10-Feb-14 05:47:29

Claytons are often the stupid ones in American films. Hate it.

AbouttoCrack Mon 10-Feb-14 06:11:56

Clayton Talbot. Bullied my brother at preschool 40 years ago. Name still haunts. Hate it.

aGirlDownUnder1 Mon 10-Feb-14 06:14:12

Sorry I don't like it. Their was a murderer called Clayton where I live and it's put me off ever since.

OneMoreThenNoMore Mon 10-Feb-14 06:20:08

I don't like it, sorry.

RoadToTuapeka Mon 10-Feb-14 06:37:23

I really really don't like it. I went to school with a Clayton in the 80s, nice guy but I hated the name then too. Puts me in mind of a really stupid lumbering redneck.

I really dislike any of the names that rhyme with it too, some sound made up. Brayton (i know a small boy with that name), Graydon, Leighton, Hayden, Jayden, Peighton (believe it or not have met one of them). Ugh. Avoid them all imo!
