Am stuck - help

Gus and all it's variations (August, Augustus, etc) are becoming quite common, if that matters to you?

Monty as the whole name rather than a nickname? Okay as a kid but is it not a bit infantile for an adult? Kind of like calling a child Tommy or Jonny?

Solomon I really like.

Not at all helpful but... I love them all!

I love Gus and would have used it for DS but DH wouldn't have it. Fab name.

1. Gus
2. Solomon

... though I really like both these names I think Gus just pips it. Hate Monty, sorry.

Monty is a toff, Gus is a fat old man in a wife beater!

I like Gus. I actually know a female Gus (Augusta) and it suits her well, but I think it works just as well for a boy. What would it be shoot for? Monty also needs to be short for something surely? Montgomery? Solomon is nice but quite a big name with no obvious shortenings.

Sol is a very common and quite obvious shortening, I would say.

MrsHulk Sat 10-Sep-16 16:33:23

Sol or solly are both used for Solomon

If you like monty you could even use Mon/Monty as a shortening of Solomon - best of both worlds smile

Solomom (Sol).

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 10-Sep-16 17:13:57

How about Zeph (Zephaniah).

Solomon is my favourite.

I quite like Gus.

I loathe and detest Monty.

I like Solomon best and think Sol and Solly are great shortenings too. Not so keen on the other two names

Fabulous thanks - sounds like Solomon is the winner which is where we were leaning anyway but struggling to make a firm decision - picking for our daughter was much easier!

Gus by a million miles

Solomon is lovely! By far my favourite of the three.

Solomon. Love it. Sol or Solly for short.

Gus is a) everywhere, and b) horrible (IMO only, of course). It reminds me of gas and pus. It's just totally unpleasant.

Gus is everywhere??

JazzAnnNonMouse Sun 11-Sep-16 03:21:27

Monty is lovely for a boy and man imo

I don't like the other 2 - sorry!
