Terrible or lovely? I've lost all ability to know with boys names now!

Nn Vinnie is great!!

I really like the idea of a little Vinnie, but my judgement around boys names is terrible. I gave DS the only name I truly loved and if this baby is a boy I'm really stuck!

I like it.

Thisrabbitthatrabbit Wed 01-Feb-17 19:40:50

Love it.

I don't like it. It's a bit 80's for me and it reminds me of Vinnie Jones.

I do know a little Vinnie though, he's about 7 or 8 so it must be making a comeback.

Love it too, although it does prompt Ian Dury's 'Sweet Gene Vincent' to play in my head.

Love it Sadly dh didnt

Vince Noir. Excellent name

marthastew Wed 01-Feb-17 19:55:53

Love it. Vincent Van Gogh not necessarily Vinnie Jones.

I also love Victor.

I love Vincent. I prefer Vince as a nn though.

Also love Victor as a previous poster suggested.

Lovely name.

howtheheckdoidealwiththis Wed 01-Feb-17 20:45:15

Great name. Good choice of nn too if you want.

mrssmith79 Wed 01-Feb-17 20:48:36

My brain goes straight to Beauty and the Beast, not the Disney one, the cheesy eighties one. I like it.

FellOutOfBed2wice Wed 01-Feb-17 20:49:01

God no. Truly terrible. Vincent is terrible and Vinnie is worse. I'm from Essex and it's one of those names (Vinnie at least) that you hear being screeched in the big Asda in Basildon.

I know this reply makes me sound shallow and a snob. I'm not, I promise.... but please don't name your kid Vinnie.

It's a name that has really grown on me over the last few weeks. I wasn't sure before, but it seems to be popping up on a lot of posts at the moment and I'm finding that I quite like it now!

mistermagpie Wed 01-Feb-17 21:56:44

Mixed reviews then! I just can't decide at all, we are sorted for girls names but I can't come up with a single boys name that I love. Apart from Vincent I quite like Reuben and Hamish (we're in Scotland if that's relevant) so if anyone has suggestions that I might like too then please share them!

KlingybunFistelvase Wed 01-Feb-17 21:59:26

Hamish is bloody amazing! Reuben is nice too but a bit meh compared to Hamish and Vincent.

Fwiw I think you will get mixed reviews for any name. Wait till he's born (if it's a he) and see which one he looks like smile.

I like Vincent and Hamish, and quite like Reuben.
