Expecting third child, brother to Alice and Helena (Heli for short). I have very mixed feelings on Perry. I really like it but at the back of my mind I cannot help but think of Kevin and Perry! Another reason that I learn towards it (Which may be a negative point for some) is the Katy Perry connection. I admit to being a massive fan-girl!
I have had such mixed feedback. One friend said it sounded very "chavvy" and another said it was a "toff" name.

Perry doesn't seem a good fit with your girl's names TBH. Also, I am meeting more and more girls called Perry/Perrie.

Just reminds me of Kevin and Perry "Hello Mrs Patterson"

Its really wet, sorry. Your girls names are brilliant and strong, you need a strong boys name

Definitely reminds me of Kevin and Perry.

If you like it, go for it, your child, your choice.

The Perry, in Kevin and Perry, was named after the actor who plays Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick). I like the name. All names can have negative connotations is you hard enough.

G rowing up, I always associated George with Georgie Porgie pudding and pie. - images of fat children always sprung to mind, but now there are hundreds of them, including a Prince.

I like it.
Kevin and Perry is long gone already I think when your child is older it wont cross anyones mind.

Perry is an alcoholic drink. That would put me off.

I don't think of K&P anymore, but it is very nicknamey with your brilliant girls' names (I am biased, I am Alice Helen!).

I like it, I taught a Perry and 'kevin and Perry' never crossed my mind at all.

I don't like it - sorry. Your DDs have beautiful names - your DS will need something strong and classic to go with them. Perry isn't that.

It reminds me of the alcoholic drink too.

squoosh Sat 08-Mar-14 13:47:04

Yes I don't think Perry goes with your girls names. Love Heli for Helena by the way.

Monty? Rafferty? Casper?

I tend to see Perry more as a girls nam tbh, but it's fine for a boy too.
