Haha okaaay!! I thought Gil was kind of cool, no? (and Gilbert makes me think of Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gablessmile)

To quote a line from The full Monty.
No. No way, and Never.grin

I like Gilly but no

I was in love with Gilbert Blythe when I was 10 years old but even at the height of my adoration I always thought his name let him down a bit.

So it's a 'nay' from me.

Gil does sound kind of cool. Because of Gil Scott Heron.

CocoLoco87 Thu 02-Feb-17 00:46:30

No. My grandad used to call a huge bogey a "Gilbert" to make me laugh when I was a nipper!

No. How about Gage.
