Not boring, maybe a little dated.

I love it! But it isn't very "in" at the moment.

MrsPringles Mon 16-Jan-17 18:55:58

Yes sorry

flumpybear Mon 16-Jan-17 18:56:59

A bit

redexpat Mon 16-Jan-17 18:57:31

Yes but dependable I feel. You can always count on a Matt.

MapMyMum Mon 16-Jan-17 18:58:44

No!! It's a classic name I think that won't become dated like some of the most popular names could do

See I am biased as have a Matthew and love the name. Shortened to Matt but grandparents, he is the only one in his class...

TheCraicDealer Mon 16-Jan-17 18:59:31

Yes. It was v popular when I was at school (born late 80's) and they all a bit....dull. Sorry. Same goes for the name Jonathon. They are the name equivalent of beige for me.

sleepyMe12 Mon 16-Jan-17 18:59:53

Nope it's on my list so I might be biased wink

I love Mat or Mati for short.

Bubbinsmakesthree Mon 16-Jan-17 19:13:21

No it's a classic. Good strong name IMO!

DragonNoodleCake Mon 16-Jan-17 19:16:18

I don't think it's boring st all

tankerdale Mon 16-Jan-17 19:22:38

Yes (to me) but if you love it that doesn't matter! I don't dislike it I just find it a bit meh.

Cakingbad Mon 16-Jan-17 19:24:33

It's a beautiful classic name. It can't date.

AmyInTheBoonies Mon 16-Jan-17 19:25:52

It's very safe, a bit dated too - I might guess he was named after his dad.

Grufallosfriend Mon 16-Jan-17 19:27:56

Yes, I find it a little dull and boring, sorry

Also don't like Matt

Laquila Mon 16-Jan-17 19:30:57

It's all subjective, OP. I quite like it but do think it's a bit boring - that's doesn't mean no-one should use it. Ironically, it'd be a boring world if we were all called Balonz and Scheherazade.

I do like Matteo and Matthias, particularly the latter.

catsarenice Mon 16-Jan-17 19:34:46

I love Matthew! Was on my shortlist for DS but dp's best friend is called Mat and DP didn't want all the jokes about Mat being the father!!

DramaAlpaca Mon 16-Jan-17 19:36:37

No, not boring at all.

Pluto30 Mon 16-Jan-17 19:40:32


It's a classic name. Lovely. Not boring, not dull, never likely to date etc.

Parsley1234 Mon 16-Jan-17 19:40:50

My friend is called Maturin never heard of it before but I like it now not so much Mathew
