What are your thoughts?

I know an adult female Sol, she is from South America, very laid back and smiley. And also knew a little boy Sol aged about 5, he was also very smiley.

I like it short for Solomon.

Not if the place you live precedes every name with 'our'

MrsBungle Sun 19-Jun-16 21:46:55

I know a Sol. It's nice but his is short for Soloman.

Ah, didn't think of that, 'Our Sol..'

I like it but it does remind me of the beer! What about Soleil?

Our Sol grin

I like it, I know a little Sol - he's about five or six and very sweet. I'm pretty sure he's just Sol and it's not short for Solomon in his case. Solomon is also lovely though.

What about the Saul spelling?

60sname Sun 19-Jun-16 21:56:53

Wyldfyre Sol and Saul are two different names though,and, depending on your accent, have different pronunciations

Wyldfyre Sun 19-Jun-16 22:09:50

Here they would be pronounced the same way, so just assumed would be same elsewhere

GingerCuddleMonsterThe2nd Sun 19-Jun-16 22:12:51

Makes me think of alcohol

Sol Mexican beer, sorry

I know a Sol short for Solstice smile

Immediately think of the beer sorry. Akin to calling a child becks imo! Though that May say more about me grin

Ffion3107 Sun 19-Jun-16 22:18:53

There's a Saul in one of the schools I work in, I'd never heard it before but it's a lovely name.
It might be pronounced differently to Sol, though?

dementedpixie Sun 19-Jun-16 22:20:28

I also think of the beer, sorry

MouldyPeach Sun 19-Jun-16 22:20:38

I love it, was in the running for my daughters name. Not short for anything, just Sol 🌞

Scribblegirl Sun 19-Jun-16 22:21:22

Makes me think of Sol Campbell! But I would assume it was a nickname.

FlossiesFurCoat Sun 19-Jun-16 22:29:42

I think the 'Our Sol' 'Arsehole' thing has put me off as DP and family are Northern...!

Maybe Solly as a nn would be better?!

I know a sol (boy) - he's a cute little surfer type.

FlossiesFurCoat Sun 19-Jun-16 22:31:03

Solomon's ok, but there are plenty of biblical names I prefer if we were to go down that route.... Elijah, Ezra and Malachi to name but a few.

nooka Sun 19-Jun-16 22:51:16

I don't really like Sol on it's own, doesn't seem like a whole name to me. Seems like it's only short for Solomon or Marisol/ Soledad though.

MrsJoeyMaynard Sun 19-Jun-16 22:57:21

Reminds me of the Sun.

Sorry Scribble! But I thought it was worth mentioning, a friend was very close to naming her son this, and we're in the north too.
