Yay or nay?

Also, would you spell it with or without the 'e' ?

NadiaWadia Wed 23-Mar-16 18:23:58

Is this a name now then? Sounds like a firm of solicitors. Shouldn't it be double 'l' anyway?

Nowthereistwo Wed 23-Mar-16 18:24:45

Do you mean as in Millhouse from Simpsons?

Why would you call a person after a mill?

Shallishanti Wed 23-Mar-16 18:26:11

what, Bart's friend?
plus was Richard Nixon's middle name - just no!

GoldPlatedBacon Wed 23-Mar-16 18:26:58

Without the 'e' it would be pronounced Milhoos.

EssentialHummus Wed 23-Mar-16 18:27:24

Having just watched the Simpsons, no. Don't do it.

DontKillMyVibe Wed 23-Mar-16 18:28:09

Are you watching Eggheads by any chance? That name has just been mentioned on there grin

But absolutely not. Bart's mate and sounds ridiculous

Pooka Wed 23-Mar-16 18:28:46

No. Just no!

Echo the Simpsons connection.

milkbottle Wed 23-Mar-16 18:30:22

DontKillMyVibe Yep! Just realised it's actually a name and not just a made up one for The Simpsons. Quite like it actually. AIBU to think people will have forgotten The Simpsons by the time DS is old enough to be questioned on his name?

Shallishanti Wed 23-Mar-16 18:33:33

highly unlikely I would think

BikeRunSki Wed 23-Mar-16 18:33:39

Village not far from here
Spelt wrongly

SqueegyBeckinheim Wed 23-Mar-16 18:34:23

The Simpsons has been running for over twenty years, it'll probably still be being made by the time your DS is old enough to be questioned about his name.

BikeRunSki Wed 23-Mar-16 18:34:39

The Simpsons will be repeated for ever.

SecretWitch Wed 23-Mar-16 18:35:51

Oh Richard Milhouse Nixon? History might forget the Simpsons but the name of a impeached American president lives on forever.

tellmemore1982 Wed 23-Mar-16 18:36:09

Awful, sorry.

Marginally better but not much is Miller

polkadotsrock Wed 23-Mar-16 18:36:28

It's not a nice name

SecretWitch Wed 23-Mar-16 18:36:29

an inpeached...

Snoopadoop Wed 23-Mar-16 18:36:30

Don't. Just don't. smile

milkbottle Wed 23-Mar-16 18:37:29

Okay, I get the message. Milhouse is an unwise choice. I will stick to my originally idea - Bart. Just kidding grin

Any other names anyone can suggest? Similar to Milhouse?

milkbottle Wed 23-Mar-16 18:37:43

Original, sorry.

YakTriangle Wed 23-Mar-16 18:37:48

I really honestly wouldn't. Too associated with a cartoon character who is pretty much just there to be ridiculed.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 23-Mar-16 18:37:55

He would be called Millie smile

NadiaWadia Wed 23-Mar-16 18:38:37

Miles. Milo

NadiaWadia Wed 23-Mar-16 18:39:34

But not Miller, as that's even dafter than Millhouse. He could be nicknamed 'Windy'.

SecretWitch Wed 23-Mar-16 18:41:34

I like Miles..
