Yes go for it, give your son a stupid name he'll love it

AfroPuffs Tue 02-Aug-16 22:52:54

If you're Italian, then yes.

Aside from the obvious Romeo & Juliet connection to me it just makes me think a 'Romeo' is a bit of a stud/ wanted by all the girls, a bit of a player etc. I think that unless your son is guaranteed to be rich/ famous (eg: Romeo Beckham) it could be a hard name to carry off. I could imagine a popular, handsome boy the girls all fancy managing to pull off the name Romeo but for an average boy, a boy who isn't a typical 'lad,' an academic boy etc it might lead to teasing etc.

If you like the Ro sound how about Ronan, Roman, Roland or Rowan? Or if you like the eo how about Leo or Theo?

There's no need to be rude, not everyone wants to be called something boring

The Beckhams and one of So Solid Crew. So it's a No from me.

I like Roman.

Sure no one wants to be called something boring but no one wants to be ridiculed

I'm not a fan, the modern association is of a guy who gets around and is a heartbreaker, which I wouldn't like. The Shakespeare association is that on an idiotic, murdering and suicidal teenager so again not great.

But it does sound nice.

Not too keen, maybe Roman instead?

It's a no from me.

...I prefer Mercutio to be honest. Equally bonkers but less popular ;-)

I love the fact that OP specified it's for a boy.

In my teen dreamy Shakespeare phase I always wanted to name a boy Balthazar, Romeo's servant.

You have to specify now. Apparently the Americans have started using Aubrey as a girls name and there was a thread earlier in the week about how this is a completely normal. Any name can be for everyone now.

EssentialHummus Wed 03-Aug-16 12:26:57

... Beckham

Or it could be that someone just misspelt Audrey and needed up with an Aubrey.
