Just discovered 'Surprised by Five' on Instagram... Basically a lady who has had quints, also has a couple of older kids.

Anyway, they're called Beatrix, Penelope, Tiffany, Allie....... And Keith!

I love it!

I thought fellow MN name lovers would like to know too, as Keith is usually ummed and aaahed about on the 'is it due a comeback?' threads!

I don't like it at all. However my mother's shit of a brother was called Keith so I associate the name very strongly with him. If he'd been called something else (if I got a time machin I'd go back and suggest to my nana that she just christen him Twatty McTwat) I'd probably not dislike the name Keith as much.

Haha all, fair play.

Aw I don't want this to be a mean thread! I reckon it's a family name and they were like 'fuck it, Keith senior was awesome so we're gonna use it'. I like that.

Not that I would call my own DC Keith... 😄

Little baby Keith is super adorable, of course. Aw.

TheWordOfBagheera Wed 11-May-16 12:43:46

Ha ha, I assumed you were considering Keith for your baby and came on to say the the quintuplets family had just named their boy Keith.

Not quite ready for a comeback IMO, but maybe a high(ish) profile baby Keith is just what the name needs grin

Keith is on a par with Nigel and Trevor. Which is to say, beyond the pale.

KoalaDownUnder Wed 11-May-16 12:44:48

Oh, I feel a bit mean now.

ManonCrempog Wed 11-May-16 13:05:05

Keith is brilliant.

I noticed that bendy and was surprised at Keith being used also. Was she from the UK? I was surprised the other day when I was speaking to a lady with a baby's better than Keith though x

It rhymes with teeth.

maggiethemagpie Wed 11-May-16 18:46:37

I met a Keith the other day and was thinknig it was a nice name! Def due a revival.

badg3r Wed 11-May-16 19:27:59

I really don't like it! But I LOVE Heath. Weird.

derenstar Wed 11-May-16 19:33:12

Keith is ace! As someone married to one, it's high time it made a come back. If John can, why not Keith, Nigel and Derrick?!

BendydickCuminsnatch Wed 11-May-16 19:59:00

I do know a baby Desmond.

I like Heath too, how odd. Why is the K so offensive? confused

They are antipodean, New Zealanders I think!

passingthrough1 Wed 11-May-16 20:31:23

Eek Keith confused ... I wonder if Kevin could come back too ..

Kittykatmacbill Wed 11-May-16 20:50:22

I was just talking about this! Keith is a great name for a toddler, boy and man. But a baby not so much... There can be no more Keiths...

RhubarbAndMustard Wed 11-May-16 20:58:33

I love Keith! Definitely due a revival along with Kenneth.

DramaAlpaca Wed 11-May-16 21:09:11

I know a Keith aged 80 and another aged 20. Both are awesome.

I still wouldn't call one of mine Keith.

wtffgs Wed 11-May-16 21:10:30

It's a fab name for a cat!

DeadAsADildo Wed 11-May-16 21:13:51

I think it's just a normal name. Is that because I'm Scottish and old?

DurhamDurham Wed 11-May-16 21:13:59

I've an uncle called Keith and he looks like an even creepier version of Michael Flatley........ Therefore all Keiths creep me out.
