Just watched a horror film "the boy"

The creepy man doll character child thing is called Brahms.....(bramsey) aa a nickname.

I think its really cute! Could anyone nane their child a name associated with a horror film?

It would depend. Brahms doesn't immediately conjure up images of a horror film.
If my surname was Kruger or Voorhies though, I wouldn't be calling my child Freddie or Jason!

Brahms is a composer.
Do you like his music? People will expect you to, if you name your child after him.

Ye true..

Yeah, don't go for Chucky. It didn't even work in the rugrats

I'm googling all associations with Brahms....

But yes composer never thought!

My dd is called Amberley and I think the names kinda compliment each other xx

Omg just thought johan brahms....Johan is the first part if my name!! Spooky!!

A name from a well-known horror film is on my shortlist but I'm not sharing it here because I don't want anyone to nick it!

Brahms is brilliant, by the way.

How many people called Jonny get to to do a Shining impression? Also never met anyone called Annabelle and immediately thought of the doll, same with Carrie and their names are the titles. Brahms I would automatically think composer.

Johannes Brahms here too.

So a good association imo, I like his music smile.

Don't hear so many Pinheads being called from the bagel aisle in Waitrose these days.

Ah, thanks for the reminder, PelvicFloor

I would think of the composer if I heard Brahms.

Brahms is also Cockney rhyming slang for drunk.

Brahms and Liszt - pissed.

<lowers tone>

MyBreadIsEggy Mon 02-May-16 09:57:05

My parents were going to call me Damian if I was a boy hmm

I would also think of the composer if heard the name Brahms!

JeanGenie23 Mon 02-May-16 10:00:11

Damien is the only horror name that really sticks for me.

I saw the conjuring recently which had an Annabelle in it but that's a popular enough name to not be tied to the film.

Same goes for Carrie, Jason, Freddie, Rosemary.

I think Chucky is a no no regardless of the films!

I quite like Brahms. Definitely made the composer connection and not the horror film connection though. If you're not keen on that then I saw another thread in here asking about the name Abraham nn. Bram. That's nice too? A slightly less unusual name and Bram also sounds good with Amberley?
