I can't decide which i like more, am thinking either could be shortened to Cass?
What do you think? x

I should maybe mention my other son is called Otis

Cassius def. .
Read the other as abacus - was watching TV and mning sorry.

I prefer cassius

Atticus as it reminds me of the father in To Kill a Mockingbird smile Cassius makes me think of Romania emperors and doesn't seem like a real name somehow

Both horrendous shock poor child

witwootoodleoo Mon 06-Mar-17 21:08:01

Or Roman emperors even

Love them both. Equally.

Cassius goes better with Otis. But it's a name that needs attitude to pull it off I think.

I know 3 boys called Atticus - I think it's very poncetastic.

Cassius is moderately preferable.

Atticus with the nick name Ati

OMG. Both these were on our shortlists for both our sons!

I love these names!

If it helps we went with neither of them for either of our sons grin Both got plainer names! Still wistful about these. Sigh.

sorry, but I think they're both totally horrific.

gunsandbanjos Mon 06-Mar-17 21:32:52

Both dreadful in my opinion.

I like Atticus.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 06-Mar-17 21:42:34

How about Otis and Marcus.

TheTartOfAsgard Mon 06-Mar-17 21:42:47

My ds has a friend called Cassius but he gets called Cash

RockyBird Mon 06-Mar-17 21:47:18

I have a close friend with a Cassius. It is a fabulous name. He gets Cass or Cassy for short.

He's a fantastic, chilled, clever and funny teenager if that makes any difference

LastGirlOnTheLeft Mon 06-Mar-17 21:48:23

Please don't do this to your son!!!

Dfg15 Mon 06-Mar-17 21:49:38

Why would u do this to a poor innocent baby - both awful names

KnightsOfCydonia Mon 06-Mar-17 21:52:19

I like atticus, because it reminds me of to kill a mockingbird.

caffelatte100 Mon 06-Mar-17 21:54:38

these seem like joke names, most people won't like these names, apart from a very few people that really do. Like you are seeing on this thread. There are lots of nicer names out there!!!

Beachedwh4le Mon 06-Mar-17 21:55:17

We have an Atticus and he gets Atti smile

EmmaC78 Mon 06-Mar-17 21:56:32

I dislike both too.
