What do you think of the name Arnold for baby boy? nn. Arnie.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Thu 21-Jul-16 08:46:07

Not really my cup of tea tbh. It's the Arn sound I think I'm not terribly keen on but then I am Irish so pronounce my rs, so it becomes Arrrrrn which I don't like. I know an adult Aaron (ah-ron) nn Arnie.

Go for it! I think it's great!

Hey! Arnold

I quite like it, but the inevitable reference is Schwarzenegger...

CatyB Thu 21-Jul-16 10:19:36

Arnold/Arnie sounds good enough to me.

FenellaFerranti Thu 21-Jul-16 10:26:34

I like it a lot but DH vetoed it for us. Good combo of fairly sensible and recognised but not too common!

Batteriesallgone Thu 21-Jul-16 10:27:34

I like it

Raines100 Thu 21-Jul-16 11:35:07

It's a grandad name, and I don't see the appeal.

I don't like it but I do like Arno. I also like Aaron.

I quite like it, but I just can't picture the name on a baby if that makes sense? Probably because I've never come across a baby with that name.

If you like it then go for it.

It's awful, of all the lovely names you're going to saddle him with that

EsmesBees Thu 21-Jul-16 11:41:52

'He's Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer
He's also a fantastic swimmer'

Unfortunately, this is the first reference that jumped to my mind

Batteriesallgone Thu 21-Jul-16 11:46:48

It will be super popular in a few years time, so bear that in mind. Albert, Alfred et al are already really popular. Arnold is similar generation and so not far behind in the popularity stakes (I reckon!)

Kipper the dog has a friend, Pig, whose little cousin is called Arnold.

srslylikeomg Thu 21-Jul-16 11:50:08

How about Arlo?

DiscordiaVanDiemen Thu 21-Jul-16 14:54:23

The only young baby I know is called Arnold. I really like it.

Pemba Thu 21-Jul-16 16:06:40

Goodness, no. My DF (70s) has friends called this so I think of it as an older name, it doesn't really have a nice sound either.

AsteroidB314 Thu 21-Jul-16 16:09:44

I really like it. My dc2 was going to have been Sylvie or Arnaud ''Arno'' as opposed to Arnie. But in the same vein.
