Thinking of Gus for upcoming DS3, however would like a longer name on the BC - would love to hear your suggestions, as outlandish and tenuously linked as possible because the traditional ones (August etc) I'm really not sure on..

Angus? Fergus? Gustav?

All the guys I know called Gus are either Fergus or Angus, I love both names but maybe if you really love Gus but hate these go with just Gus? The Gaelic for Angus is Aonghas (an-OO-is) and can be Gus, obviously if you're using that everyday pronouncing Aonghas won't be an issue!

Cassius (might be a bit of a stretch!)

Guiseppe?! Gunther?

I'd probably go for Angus because I love it, but I agree that you could use Gus on its own. Plenty of people have been registered as Charlie or Billy or Fred in the last few years so why not Gus?

I would choose Magnus, nn Gus, love it x

I really like Magnus, its very popular in Scandinavia.

My brother's name is Cassius and he in Swedish

I've got a Gus...short for Angus. Cracking name!!

Love the name Angus, but is any one else thinking Finknottle?

Timeandtune Tue 28-Jul-15 17:12:02

Yes me Penny. And would I be right in thinking you are an Archers fan too?

Absolutely right Timeandtune!
