Hi what do people think of the name Vincent? Vinnie for short? We quite like it as it isn't very common.

Love it! I wanted it for ds2 but it's a dd.

ExBallerina Sun 20-Dec-15 20:23:20

I just met a Vincent, Vinnie, he was 6. I like it/him

Sammy1888 Sun 20-Dec-15 20:23:22

Love the NN Vinnie!

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 20-Dec-15 20:24:34

I really liked it but dh vetoed like Victor also

Don't think it's come round to fashion again. Still a bit Spiv.

I know a little Vincent - I'm less keen on Vinnie than Vincent. But I think it's a really really good name.

I love the name Vincent.

eatmytoes888 Sun 20-Dec-15 20:28:29

It was my no. 1 choice - but turned out to be DD! Love it and you rarely hear it.

Sophronia Sun 20-Dec-15 20:29:28

Good name, would like to hear of it being used.

Yika Sun 20-Dec-15 20:31:28

I know a little Vincent. I don't love it but it suits him. I don't like Vinnie.

BonesyBones Sun 20-Dec-15 20:31:44

I love it! Was desperate to use it for my DS2 but DP said no. sad it's a lovely name

MrsTatum1980 Sun 20-Dec-15 20:37:49

I like it as I currently don't know any (and I'm a teacher!) so that's a real positive as I like original names but I have previously taught one and he was absolutely lovely (yes I know I shouldn't judge on sole basis of names but I can't help it!) grin

I would want it just for the Don McLean song which is so beautiful. DH's friend is Vincent so we felt we couldn't use it.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 20-Dec-15 20:42:39

Hate it.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 20-Dec-15 21:23:03

Well it's already on my short list if I have a boy.

DickDewy Sun 20-Dec-15 21:24:57

I imagine a little Vinnie to have slitty eyes and a buzz cut, and possibly an earring.

BendydickCuminsnatch Sun 20-Dec-15 21:25:22

Like it! Has a nice sound. Prefer Vince to Vinnie.

WanderingTrolley1 Sun 20-Dec-15 21:27:02

I love Vincent. Nickname Vinnie, I'm not so sure.

B33rTricksPott3r Sun 20-Dec-15 21:28:13

'Slitty eyes' wtf?

DickDewy Sun 20-Dec-15 21:31:12

I mean slitty eyes as in a mean sort of face.

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 20-Dec-15 23:11:17

It makes me want to say 'Yo Vinnie' in a wise guy accent.

CurlyhairedAssassin Sun 20-Dec-15 23:14:59

Well Vinnie Jones springs to mind straight away. Plus there is a Vinnie in the secondary school where I work and he is a bit naughty so not good connotations, Vinnie, for me.

I like Vincent. And Vince for short.

Naoko Sun 20-Dec-15 23:18:18

I have a cousin Vincent. He is lovely! If shortened it's usually Vin. Only his sister calls him Vinnie grin

HelpfulChap Sun 20-Dec-15 23:21:34

I like it.
