What are people's thoughts on the name Montgomery? With an M surname?

pennyunwise Mon 22-Aug-16 13:51:10

I don't personally like it all, but I don't see anything major wrong with it. Just not my taste.

LadyMonicaBaddingham Mon 22-Aug-16 13:56:28

I prefer Mortimer, but Montgomery is nice too

MollyRedskirts Mon 22-Aug-16 13:57:27

It reminds me of The Simpsons. I instantly associate that name with Mr Burns.

TroysMammy Mon 22-Aug-16 13:59:36

I'm sorry I don't like it either because it will be shortened to Monty and I knew a horrible little dog with that name.

EssentialHummus Mon 22-Aug-16 14:08:54

... Burns.

Love it!

idontevencare Mon 22-Aug-16 14:11:56

I really like it. And with Monty as a nickname. It's classic but different.

NoCapes Mon 22-Aug-16 14:14:54

It's a no from me

Chippednailvarnishing Mon 22-Aug-16 14:16:06

Depends on the surname. But love it.

ElodieS Mon 22-Aug-16 14:19:01

I like Monty... less sure about the full version though.

ThinkPinkStink Mon 22-Aug-16 14:22:32

I know a little Monty - he's a lovely little boy and I can't imagine him being called anything else. Do it!

TheDMailisacrockofshit Mon 22-Aug-16 14:30:31

Monty Burns would be first in my mind, as well.

I think of Montgomery Clift, but I'm sure I'm the minority there. As PP's have said, it's pretty heavily associated with The Simpsons and that won't change anytime in the near future.

I like it (because of the Clift association), but wouldn't use it.

Grittzio Mon 22-Aug-16 21:25:08

I like it but think it will get shortened, like it or not, and Monty is a very popular dogs name around my area.

MrsGsnow18 Mon 22-Aug-16 22:37:27

I know it as a surname mostly.
Full name is nice, wouldn't be my choice but I don't think of anything negative when I hear it.
I'm not a huge fan of Monty as it seems like quite a popular name for dogs.

ChiefClerkDrumknott Mon 22-Aug-16 22:42:32

I also associate it with Clift my teenage crush and love Monty as a nn but am probably in the minority

wobblywonderwoman Mon 22-Aug-16 22:48:17

It wouldbt be for me. No sorry

purplefox Tue 23-Aug-16 03:27:55

I like it but I hate Monty as a nickname.

Motherfuckers Tue 23-Aug-16 03:44:18

I have always liked Montgomery (nn Monty) but as a PP suggests Mortimer! So so much cuter! Incidentally, I love alliterations.

cookiefiend Tue 23-Aug-16 04:29:43

Nice. I wouldn't let the association with the Simpsons put you off. There are lots of names which are less common whih people will associate with a character they remember- goes with the territory of a more unusual name.

Mouthfulofquiz Tue 23-Aug-16 05:40:54

Montagu? (Like the wonderful Monty Don)

Thanks for the comments! The Simpsons connection doesn't bother me but I do have my doubts that it's too doggy! Just useful to hear a cross section of views. This naming lark is hard.... Obsessing over names to the point that I could barely tell you if I like them anymore!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Tue 23-Aug-16 08:08:46

I also thought immediately of Monty Burns which would put me off. Aside from that, it isn't really to my taste. I don't like the sound and find it a bit of a mouthful - wouldn't know whether to say 'Mont-gom-eh-ry' or 'Mont-gom-ry'. I know a Monty, but Montgomery is his surname.
