I love the name woody for a boy. But a friend says it's just reminds her of toy story and not a real name like woody allen (for instance)

What is everyone's view?

Not for me.

As a complete aside, Isn't Zoe ball's son called woody?

I agree with your friend
Cute nickname tho

I also think of toy story sorry!

MehsMum Fri 07-Nov-14 15:29:13

Sounds like a toy or a dog. Or a tree.

Reminds me of erections. I don't think someone's name should put people in mind of aroused genitals.

Woody Allen.

I think it's ok as a nn, but it's an awful name by itself.

twinkletoes2015 Fri 07-Nov-14 15:49:41

I thought of erections straight away, sorry!

Apparently woody allens real name is Heywood.

Bowlersarm Fri 07-Nov-14 15:51:00

Or I should have said 'full name'

Haha thanks

Do not want to name my child after an erection ha never heard of an erection as woody! Okay put off now lol

Boys names are so hard

Woody is a cartoon character. Toy Story and Woodpecker.

It could maybe work as a nn but for me it's not one of those names that every 40 year old man could pull off.

Tried it on a teenage boy- he sniggered. Sorry.

livsmum4 Fri 07-Nov-14 16:01:35

Haha thanks guys back to the drawing board.

I have awful taste in boys names other options are Louis and Noel

squoosh Fri 07-Nov-14 16:02:11

Louis is ace.

Noel is considerably less ace.

Bowlersarm Fri 07-Nov-14 16:24:45

I love Louis.

Sophronia Fri 07-Nov-14 16:39:42

Woodrow nn Woody?

I like Noel a lot.

BreeVDKamp Fri 07-Nov-14 16:52:14

I know a Woodrow nn Woody. I think it's cool! Woody from toy Story is ace anyway. Woody Allen not so much ha.

Lunastarfish Fri 07-Nov-14 17:19:24

I like Woody. Could go for Edward and have Woody as nn.
