Opinions on the name Griffin?

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 14-Feb-17 16:00:52

I like it!

Jooni Tue 14-Feb-17 18:06:35

I like it a lot, and know a little 18m old one who really suits it. I love Griff for short.

CactusFred Tue 14-Feb-17 18:09:36

I love it.

This was my no1 choice all through my pregnancy but DH hated it and despite me hoping he'd come round he never did angry

Go for it!

Sparklingbrook Tue 14-Feb-17 18:11:18

It's a no from me.

reuset Tue 14-Feb-17 18:54:56

Not really my taste but it's ok

bottlegreen Tue 14-Feb-17 18:56:22

A very Welsh vibe... I like it!

Peter griffin is the first thing that springs to mind.

Not a fan.

Fat guy from Family Guy.

As long as your surname isn't Daw.

EggsEleven Tue 14-Feb-17 19:11:32

I like it. I think i prefer the spelling Gryffin though would probably have to spend a lifetime explaining how to spell it. Love Griff as a nn.

Popskipiekin Tue 14-Feb-17 19:24:01

We well I did, DH thought I'd lost my marbles thought about this for DS2. We were actually going to use Fin(n) as a nn. What about other rather mystical/creature names - Peregrine, Merlin, Oberon...

Reminds me of a 70s bike, a Grifter. I don't like. Sorry.

CoffeeDiamonds Tue 14-Feb-17 19:37:58

Love love love love love!

Juveniledelinquent Tue 14-Feb-17 19:42:46

Sorry, I don't like it at all.

sonlypuppyfat Tue 14-Feb-17 19:53:07

Yes it's nice, works well for a man as well as a baby

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 14-Feb-17 20:13:05

Sorry, it's a no, from me.

SuperBeagle Tue 14-Feb-17 20:21:01

I like it, but prefer the spelling Gryffin. I don't think it'd be misspelt any more than Griffin, as the Gryffindor association is very strong.

Fackorf Tue 14-Feb-17 20:23:06

Makes me think of ex-BNP leaders.

RuthB4 Tue 14-Feb-17 20:49:09

Sorry, really don't like it but if you both love it then go for it!

TheMysteriousJackelope Tue 14-Feb-17 20:53:55

I am not sure about it because it reminds me of the mythical beast.

Apart from that it is fine as a name.

BelafonteRavenclaw Tue 14-Feb-17 20:54:04

DS2 has a Welsh name that shortens to Griff, its a great name. I'm also a teacher and I've only taught one Griff/Griffin (and I teach in Wales). If you like it go for it.

MikeUniformMike Tue 14-Feb-17 21:02:07

Griff. Griffin. Great choice.

tygr Tue 14-Feb-17 21:03:20

I had a cat called Gruffyn (pronounced Griffin, Welsh spelling). Lovely name. I probably couldn't use it for a child now...

NapQueen Tue 14-Feb-17 21:04:39

We wanted Griff/Griffin for ds but then it clicked....with a dd naned Meg we couldnt then have a Griffin. Grrrr
