I'm expecting my first DS. My friend suggested the name Garrett. I haven't really thought about names. What do you think of it?

Not a fan. Sorry.

What style of name do you like?

I quite like it. Kind of makes me think dingy attic but I think I'd soon get over that if I knew a human one!

No... sounds too much like garrotte and will be shortened to Gary.

Thanks Libraries and Manic for your responses. I like long names like Alexander and sebastian but don't want to use them. Not sure why.

Thanks whatkaty, definitely Gary puts me off. So for that reason alone, I will not use it. Thanks, that was easy.

Seb and Alex are great names.

Thanks whatkaty. DS due in Feb so plenty of time to find a name.

No no and no !!

Reminds me of Garret FitzGerald.

I know lots of Gareths who are never referred to as Gary so I really wouldn't worry about that. Garrett does sound a bit like someone who can't pronounce there THs correctly trying to say 'Gareth'.

It's bloody awful. And makes me think of this...

Thank you imin, mitzy and remus. I have stopped thinking about the name. It's a godd thing I have you kind MNetters to open my eyes.
