This is a name me and DH like - we were always set on naming our son Bertie after our grandparents - but I literally looked this up and DH prefers this name.

Our children have nick names that end in the 'ee' sound so I am not sure if Magnus would be too strong a name iykwim

I have a soft spot for Magnus, I think it's strong and masculine but not over the top, I much prefer it to Bertie which reminds me of Bertie beetle and bert from sesame street.

Love it. Much better name than Bertie which to me will always be nice but dim Bertie Wooster.

An excellent name. Classic, uncommon, good associations.

Love it. Strong, unusual (but not in a new/trendy way). Go for it!

I love this name. Would be on my list if dh didn't associate it with the wrestler. Much prefer to Bertie. It's good to break the mould with the rhyming nicknames. I like the idea of Magpie as a nickname personally.

My cat's name wink

It means great. So I think it is a great name, op! Go for it!

I have a gorgeous little Magnus. Easy to spell, a strong name. He has never had a nickname, apart from a classmate who thinks his name is Magnet....smile

Awesome name! (bias...)

I don't really like it but I live in scandinavia so know shit loads of them, you kid may not always live in the UK. Some are nice some not none are particularly masculine.

Don't particularly like it. I'd use it for a Great Dane, not a child.

I don't think it's hideous, mind, just not doing it for me.
