Be honest!

furcoatbigknickers Fri 05-Dec-14 22:19:09

I like wren but for a girl, sorry

PinkOboe Fri 05-Dec-14 22:19:15

And stimpy

LJBB1 Fri 05-Dec-14 22:19:46

Exactly my worries...

Really like it!

greengagemutantgingermyrtle Fri 05-Dec-14 22:26:07

And Stumpy.

Sorry blush

I'd automatically think of Kevin Bacons character in Footloose.

greengagemutantgingermyrtle Fri 05-Dec-14 22:26:47

Fuck you autocorrect! *Stimpy

babyfedleaning Fri 05-Dec-14 22:27:03

They may add a "t" to ren and call him rent boy?

Wolfiefan Fri 05-Dec-14 22:33:42

I'm with Only1!

No, just absolutely nothing to it.

Another Stimpy here. It also makes me think of Rennies.

I like Joss. Not that this is helpful to you. Also I like Seth.

I straight away think of ren and stimpy...but suspect his own generation wouldn't. Is it short for anything?

scarletforya Fri 05-Dec-14 22:42:39

Yep, Stimpy.

What about Ruan for a boy?

Cherriesandapples Fri 05-Dec-14 22:57:35

rent boy....

stretch Fri 05-Dec-14 23:06:10

I like it.
Kids will find something for all names. Just pick a name you like and be confident about it. Dont tell anyone beforethe birth, just announce, "this is baby xxx"

Completely at risk of outing my identity here given the rareness of the name, but hey ho...

My dad's name is Reynold. Absolutely everyone calls him Ren.

It's a bit confusing when having to give his name. It often gets written as 'Len' and those that don't do that write it as 'Wren'.

Other than that, I think it's a great name but obviously I'm biased!

StetsonsAreCool Fri 05-Dec-14 23:14:35

Exactly how babyfedleaning said it, in that voice.

It's the same reason that we've written off George if this one's a boy - Dd is Darcey and I'd forever be singing Sharkey and George...

thatsn0tmyname Fri 05-Dec-14 23:17:05

I like it but as a nickname for a 'proper' name.

Toucanet Sat 06-Dec-14 01:30:32

? Renoir? Reynold? Rentokil?

MoreBonkersThanBonkers Sat 06-Dec-14 01:33:38

It sounds a bit strange to me. Wren for a girl is just about ok but I've never heard of Ren for a boy. I would think it was short for something.

Isn't Ren a brand of toiletries?
