Baby is going to be here Friday if all goes to plan with induction. Did have our name sorted if it was going to be a boy which was Kester but husband has done a u turn and think it clashes with our surname which is the same as a very famous comedian whose first name is billy.

So we have thought of Ewart tonight.

What are peoples thoughts on the name.

Sorry wrong forum, I shall get HQ to put this,somewhere else.

It's very unusual I've never heard it before. To be honest first thing that comes to mind is a variation of Stuart/Stewart.
I honestly prefer Kester and if the comedian is "the big man" himself in think that sounds fine!

Tbh, thinking ahead, kids can be cruel so I'd probably avoid anything with, 'Ew!', 'Wart' or, 'Ewww! Wart!' There are a hundred names that could be based on Ewart and none of them are kind.

Ah it's okay, you're pregnant so pregnancy
it is grin

I personally don't like it, but it does go well with your surname.
If you don't like the two hard consonants, then what about Lester? It's the same sound but without the K.

nickelbabe Sun 06-Dec-15 22:39:05

Yes, along the lines of Ewart are:
Wyatt, stuart/stewart, everett/evert/everard, edward, edmund/edmond, eael or ayleward

nickelbabe Sun 06-Dec-15 22:39:23

Shit, Earl not eael

Hi, we're moving this thread over to our Baby Names topic now.

fanjodisfunction we hope it all goes smoothly on Friday. smile flowers

Good luck for Friday...I think Ewart will be misheard as Stewart. How about Euan

AvaCrowder Sun 06-Dec-15 23:31:09

I second the good wishes and lovely cuddles with a new born.

I prefer Stuart or Euan. I've never heard of Ewart as a name, I live overseas, hang out in the Irish pub, so Cian I like.

Have fun with your baby!

Sophronia Sun 06-Dec-15 23:31:35

Kester is much nicer and sounds fine with the surname.

How about Stewart or Ewan?

mellicauli Sun 06-Dec-15 23:34:39

"What's you name?"
"you what?"

pmsl @ Mellicauli.

Just no, to OP, No to Ewart. I know boy names are tough, but you can do this. Keep working on it.

y0rkier0se Sun 06-Dec-15 23:43:54

Dislike Ewart. Euan is nice though! Good luck for Fridaysmile

celtictoast Sun 06-Dec-15 23:44:48

I haven't head of Ewart and don't like it. How about Ewan, Evan, Stuart?

Kester and Kit seem to be the trendy nicknames for Christopher at the moment but I much prefer just Chris.

cocacola1006 Sun 06-Dec-15 23:45:13

U wart is all I hear sorry :/

That's what they'd call him in high school.

Kester's much nicer! Or Euan, Lachlan, even Stewart (a fine classic name).

IoraRua Mon 07-Dec-15 07:28:34

I just see Ew Wart. Nope. Not a fan.

ThreeRuddyTubs Mon 07-Dec-15 07:32:50

Please don't do that to your tiny little's not even a name that would suit a grown man more it's just horrible

Sofiria Mon 07-Dec-15 08:11:25

I'm sorry, all I can see there is 'wart.' It's just too prominent. Stuart is much better, if you want something similar-sounding.

lastqueenofscotland Mon 07-Dec-15 10:25:28

I thought wart and then thought it sounds a bit like Ewok...

OTheHugeManatee Mon 07-Dec-15 10:42:16

I see Ewart and think 'you what?'.

Sorry grin

aoife24 Mon 07-Dec-15 10:54:20

I like it and don't foresee issues around 'ew Wart' etc. It's a Scottish surname, quite distinct from Stuart, and there is a tradition of using surnames as for names here. I do prefer Kester though and really, it's fine with your surname.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 07-Dec-15 15:06:59

No not a fan, sorry. However I think it's the spelling as apose to the pronunciation. It just looks like Eee Wart to me. IYSWIM. How about an alternative spelling such as Euart.

fanjodisfunction Tue 08-Dec-15 10:36:30

I think I'm going off it now, I really like kester but it means Christopher and dh has a brother called this and we'll we don't get on. So I'm going off kester too.

I really like


My DS is called Lachlan so needs to go with that.
