I keep going on and of the name its for a boy .

I kind of like it but it makes me think of the character in the first series of American Horror Story who, on the whole, I probably wouldn't want to associate a new born baby with. But if you haven't seen it then crack on!

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 21-Jun-15 14:13:37

I quite like it.

WickedCrip Sun 21-Jun-15 14:15:37

It's a shipper name in the fandom I'm part of (NCIS) so it makes me think of two of the characters.

I love it actually.

However, very similar to Nate (and nicknames of Nathaniel and Nathan) which are currently very popular. Its likely to get mistaken.

And I can't help but think of Tate and Lyle. I don't think its a bad association, but it is one to be aware of.

I think it's trying too hard to choose an usual name. Nate is nice though.

Another one that thinks American Horror Story, but otherwise it's a lovely name!

I quite like it. I can imagine a cute toddler and a cool teen, even though I prefer more traditional names generally.

CakeRattleandRoll Sun 21-Jun-15 14:54:56

I like it.

lordStrange Sun 21-Jun-15 14:55:52

yes, nice

hawkmcqueen Sun 21-Jun-15 15:45:39

I like it but have seen it as a girls name as well if that bothers you. But yeah it's a cool name, I would see it fitting a trendy toddler.

SayExcuseMe Sun 21-Jun-15 15:47:36

American Horror Story.
Or the art museum

Sorry blush

How about Blake, Obie, Otto or Aran?

Floggingmolly Sun 21-Jun-15 15:49:42

What on God's earth is a "trendy" toddler? Tate is bloody awful, and wouldn't make him any trendier than calling him Brian...

VixxFace Sun 21-Jun-15 15:55:04

Love it

Bostin Sun 21-Jun-15 15:57:03

I like it b

FernGullysWoollyPully Sun 21-Jun-15 15:58:33

I know of a little boy called Tate that's was born in the last 2 months. I'm not crazy about it, it makes me think of Tate and Lyle too!

Justnapping Sun 21-Jun-15 16:16:56

Ooh I like it!!

Fierceflora Sun 21-Jun-15 16:25:36

I hate it sorry. But appear to be in the minority

toldmywrath Sun 21-Jun-15 16:29:39

Might out myself here but we had a teacher at my secondary school whose nickname was tit-less Tate (what cruel things children can say!)So I forever associate the name with that.

Teawaster Sun 21-Jun-15 16:36:49

Hate it. Doesn't sound like a name, for a human anyway

Twowrongsdontmakearight Sun 21-Jun-15 16:37:30

Sounds more like a surname than a Christian name to me! But then I only really like traditional names so what do I know? You choose a name that you like and think you'll still like in 20 years.
