I am 33 weeks pregnant expecting a boy....me and my husband love the name Rudy....just wanted feedback on what people think as we haven't told friends and family and its not the sort of name you hear often....although that's what I love about it! �� xxx

Honestly ? (you asked...) I don't like it.

I can't really give you a persuasive argument though - it's just not at all to my taste.
I do suspect other dc would highlight the 'rude' bit of the name, but I think it's more than that, that I don't like it for.

shellbell1980 Mon 22-Jun-15 01:01:50

No it's fine, it's your true option I was after!...it was the "rude" that I was worried people would connect with the name sad

Don't like it, sorry. Can't get past Rudy Judy

Sorry, I think it will become embarrassing as Ds grows up, either because of the 'rude' connection or supposition it is a shortened form of Rudolf of the red nose fame.

Feeling torn now!....getting slightly put off the name ha ha!!...thank you for your opinions! X

It's a very 'in' name I like it

HelenF350 Mon 22-Jun-15 01:26:44

I like it.

I like it. It's not my style but I wouldn't think anything bad if I heard of a child with that name.

I love it. I know someone who called their baby Rudy many years ago, I can't remember anything but compliments about it.

Very cute!
Makes me think of the Specials song, A Message to You Rudy, which is a great song.

Sorry, don't like it.

It's not a great name in some cities because of the gangsta/slang associations. It's somewhat worse than 'cheeky chappie'

Whenwillwe3meetagain Mon 22-Jun-15 06:06:52

I like but it's quite nicknamey

AwfulBeryl Mon 22-Jun-15 06:15:48

I love it it.

2 Rudy's in ds1 class. Neither gets remotely teased (9 yr olds)

favouritewasteoftime Mon 22-Jun-15 06:31:09

It's a lovely name!

Rudy reminds me of a character from a childrens show I watched when I was a kid, I think maybe a pig but also maybe a monster? Either way I doubt any children that will be your son's age will have watched it. Rudy is a nice name I'm not to keen, but I like it. I think it will definitely grow on people, it already has started to work on me!

My grandfather was Rudolf but went by Rudy. I like it!

Archer26 Mon 22-Jun-15 06:59:50
