What's your reaction to the boy's name, "Tate"?

Alyx80 Tue 13-Oct-15 22:08:11

I have a Tate so obviously I love it, it really suits him.

minimalistaspirati0ns Tue 13-Oct-15 22:08:58

Great name

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Tue 13-Oct-15 22:09:39

American?
Art fan? (Gallery)
Potato?

Seems a bit 'lightweight' to me, but it would be a boring world if we were all the same!

celtictoast Tue 13-Oct-15 22:19:34

It means potato.

I really like Tate, a friend just had a little boy and named him the same, she got the name from American horror story season 1 grin

I think its awful sounds like half a bag of sugar

MagicDucky Tue 13-Oct-15 22:42:28

No offence meant.

Imaging how it would sound when others are shouting him. I crossed Hunter off my list because I knew people would pronounce it "Hun'er" I hate when people don't pronounce the T's properly like when people say ta'oo instead of tattoo.

That could just be because of where I'm from and the accent we have though.

I do like the name, but the T thing would put me off.

Makes me think of teat

Wolfiefan Tue 13-Oct-15 23:00:25

Modern?

LadyB49 Tue 13-Oct-15 23:00:42

Don't like it.... it's like Brittany for a girl.
Sorry

MagicDucky that is the reason I ruled it out for DS2 so quickly.

I love the name, but where I'm from no one pronounces T's properly so I got scared to use it.

It is a lovely name though op so if you think it'll sound right in your accent then go for it.

Vixxfacee Tue 13-Oct-15 23:02:40

Love

Love it.

DramaAlpaca Tue 13-Oct-15 23:22:06

Not a fan, sorry.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 14-Oct-15 10:01:48

My immediate reaction is, why not.

Stinkilinky Wed 14-Oct-15 11:14:38

Made me think of potatoes sorry!

MackerelOfFact Wed 14-Oct-15 12:24:16

I think of the sugar brand and the gallery.

Nate I love though. Probably a nickname for Nathan though which isn't as nice.

Ham69 Wed 14-Oct-15 20:18:28

Makes me think of Emma Bunton but she's not the worst celeb to associate a name with. I don't mind the name.

Lunastarfish Wed 14-Oct-15 20:32:37

I really like it but as a non-posh southerner the second T wouldn't be pronounced by my family properly so I'll never use it sad

jp0303 Wed 14-Oct-15 21:28:40

It makes me think of the film 'Little Man Tate', which is silly because the boy's first name was Fred. If I knew a boy called Tate I would be tempted to call him a nn of Little Man or Fred. That film is already over 20 years old though so wouldn't be a problem with his peer group.

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 15-Oct-15 01:37:32

Really like it. (I also think of that film!)

MamaLazarou Thu 15-Oct-15 14:27:48

I love it.

MrsNuckyT Thu 15-Oct-15 14:35:46

Not a fan.

Chelsea26 Thu 15-Oct-15 14:40:24

I prefer Nate
