I think we've decided on Adam. Just one last sense check please.... What's wrong with it? Hit me with your worst... I can't see any connotations/nicknames/random reasons that are too bad but maybe not thinking hard enough!
Thank you grin

Nothing - it's a lovely name!

CrystalMcPistol Wed 03-Jun-15 02:09:45

It's fine.

love it.

It's a great name, only thing is it's so lovely it's really popular where I live (North of Scotland), my DN is 15 and there are loads in his year. Seems to be less popular for younger kids though.

It's lovely.

I really like it. Only problem I had with it is i don't like how the French pronounce it. Relevant to me but probably not to you!

I love Adam

Absolutely fine, never thought there was anything wrong with it.

Unless you have a daughter called Eve, it's a lovely name and should be fine.

It's lovely and I only know one who is a teenager so not that popular round here (north east)

My boy was nearly Adam I really love it.

Fab name, go for it. I know one who is about 6 or 7 now.

ihearttea Wed 03-Jun-15 07:33:39

Nothing at all, I love it.

There's an Adam in our NCT group, a lovely smiley boy and he really suits his name. I think it's fab.

EmpressOfJurisfiction Wed 03-Jun-15 07:43:01

Nothing wrong at all.

Nice name. There are a lot of Eves about these days, he could end up attached to one - but that would be just a little bit funny really.

I have an Adam. I don't recall getting many comments when we named him so I assumed that people either didn't like or felt neutral about the name choice. We are happy with it and he likes his name. He gets called Ad, Ada, Adamy but mostly just Adam.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 03-Jun-15 07:55:39

Adam's lovely.

TiggyD Wed 03-Jun-15 08:01:53

OH DEAR GOD, NOT ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TiggyD Wed 03-Jun-15 08:02:50

Actually, nothing wrong with Adam. It's a non-made up name. Fine.

youmakemydreams Wed 03-Jun-15 08:04:57

I love Adam (biased) I've had compliments on it mainly from older people. I think because it's a classic non made up name.

firstcomeslove Wed 03-Jun-15 08:20:40

It's a perfectly ok name. Just a bit dull.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Wed 03-Jun-15 08:29:22

Nothing. Why who said there were. It's not a name I'd choose personally but it is a nice name

insanityscatching Wed 03-Jun-15 08:39:39

My first born is Adam, he's late twenties now. It's not hugely popular around here in fact I know only two others one in twenties and one a tween. I'd say it's a name that ages well so at no point from him being a baby to a man did it seem clunky. Go for it.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 03-Jun-15 08:41:23

Nothing, it's a good name.

It would be one I'd consider for a boy in future were it not the name of my first boyfriend who is still a long time friend. He'd never shut up about me naming my son after him grin
