Thinking of Matthew Geroge Oliver?Three names but I think they sound good together?

Fantastic name, classic but a bit under used at the moment. I was always anti three names as opposed to two, but then used three for my ds grin Sounds great, why not try it out for a few days, see how it sticks.

Three classic names. Can't go wrong there. Personally I would spell it George buy I know what you youngsters are like with your wacky names wink

Miss print ment George

Lovely names.

Matthew is a great name. Classic but underused now and with potential for some nice nn's. Your middle names aren't really my taste but it all sounds fine together.

My 18 yr old DS has just changed his whole name, surname included (no contact with father) and his name is now Matthew!

I could see a boy would like to be called Matthew.Thank you,

It's still used a lot around here. Lots of Matts, Mattys etc.

I'm not keen on it, bit meh.

My eldest is Mathew, now known as Mat

Dreamimgofmyholiday Mon 08-Feb-16 07:37:57

By everyone?

Matthew is nice. Be prepared for it to be shortened to Matt . Prefer Oliver as a middle name - two is overkill.

madmotherof2 Mon 08-Feb-16 08:15:31

Yes most People, that was his request

Very popular in Ireland, think it might even have been the most popular boys name a couple of years ago.

It's an okay name.

Lovely, I think the three names sound great together.

Bit biased but i like it! Mine is Matthew at home but Matt at school and to friends.

Dreamimgofmyholiday Mon 08-Feb-16 11:55:26

I think he would always be Matthew to me too ,probably Matt at school that seems so far off thought.

Sophronia Mon 08-Feb-16 11:58:40

Matthew is lovely

Dreamimgofmyholiday Mon 08-Feb-16 12:50:07

I think it is going to be his name,but I'II know for sure when I see him.

Dreamimgofmyholiday Mon 08-Feb-16 13:42:33

I don't know many Matthews,what kind of boy do you think of when you hear Matthew?

It's a good solid name, but I don't like the (inevitable?) nickname Matt..

fleurdelacourt Mon 08-Feb-16 14:31:51

I have a Matthew. It's a great, solid boys name - I was expecting more 'meh' type comments as there is a large MN contingent who prefer more unique names (Quentin anyone?!)

For me - I like that it's not super popular right now, but I also like that it's traditional. As long as you're 100% fine with all his friends calling him Matt as he grows up (there is no escape IMO) then go for it.

We actually have a Quentin! Still like the name Matthew smile
