Miller. Never heard Dougray before hmm

Soapalert Sun 16-Oct-16 20:22:50

I am not keen I'm afraid. I like Douglas though, with nn Douggy

Vixxfacee Sun 16-Oct-16 20:23:32

I like Miller or even Ray.

booellesmum Sun 16-Oct-16 20:23:43

Honestly - neither.
Really not keen on Dougray.
Miller is nice but I just keep thinking of Windy Miller.

ErrolTheDragon Sun 16-Oct-16 20:25:12

Dougray Scott was the lead in Enigma wasn't he? Its OK.
But Douglas is much nicer.

Miller is a surname.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 16-Oct-16 20:28:06

Ray ! 😄
It would have to be Miller.

LuckySantangelo1 Sun 16-Oct-16 20:28:30

Dougray is a fab name! Very solid. Miller yes I agree is a sirname.

MissOrganisedMe Sun 16-Oct-16 20:31:15

Miller is my favourite smile

MissOrganisedMe Sun 16-Oct-16 20:32:22

That's it Lucky. I want a 'solid' name.

Voteforpedr0 Sun 16-Oct-16 21:16:47

Miller is beer.

RiverTam Sun 16-Oct-16 21:51:32

Dougray. Dougray Scott is lush.

gunting Sun 16-Oct-16 21:57:32

How do you say dougray?

Yikes. Neither. And I suspect they would get bullied for such names at school. I mean for gods sake not Caden Jaden or Haden. But something that isn't bully worthy. Douglas or Alexander. I'm not a fuddy duddy but sometimes I wander if being "out their " with names is a crap shoot. Your dammed if you do.. Don't make them hate you till their over 21 it's just not worth it. Sorry blush

My thoughts are:

Dougray sounds like two names mashed together. Might as well call him Tomjohn or Alexjack. I know there's an actor with this name but I think his parents probably made it up, didn't they? Anyway I don't like it.

Miller is a surname and I hate surnames as first names.

Those are just my thoughts.

Coey2016 Sun 16-Oct-16 22:15:47

I like Dougray. I think of Dougray Scott who I like.

I like Miller too, though I think Dougray would edge it for me.

But I like both!

RiverTam Sun 16-Oct-16 22:49:12

I've just read that Dougray was his French grandmother's surname that he took as a stage name as he couldn't use his actual name (Stephen). Which is interesting, I'd assumed it was perhaps an old variant of Douglas or something like that.

So there you go, Dougray nn Steve.

MotherDuckSaid Mon 17-Oct-16 10:35:45

I think on the whole children just want normal names , growing up is hard enough as it is !

Elbi Mon 17-Oct-16 11:05:14

I think a some people would say 'Doogray' rather than 'Duggray'... So you'd have to be okay with that!

PotatoBread Mon 17-Oct-16 11:57:24

I prefer Dougary. I do pronounce it Doogray though as that's what I thought was right even though I pronounce Douglas Dug-glas.

Jojo13 Mon 17-Oct-16 12:16:35

Really like Miller.

WanderingTrolley1 Mon 17-Oct-16 12:17:31

Interesting names...
