I dont like it. Sounds like a teddy bear's name, sorry.

I always think of it as a dogs name blush but actually, I quite like it for a baby. I've never met one in my life though.

Lovely name!

PetalMettle Sun 12-Mar-17 18:25:50

Dog for me, but immediately I thought of the SBC film "I am Bruno dove of peace@

smilingsarahb Sun 12-Mar-17 18:26:23

I really love this name

Shamoffour Sun 12-Mar-17 18:26:25

It was on our list but our surname starts with B so we thought it sounded like a dodgy car salesman!
I love the name though.

No, just no. Sounds like a dog. Sorry, don't like it.

Sophronia Sun 12-Mar-17 18:44:00

I like it

Jooni Sun 12-Mar-17 18:45:15

It's quite nice. Bet there are more dogs called Max and Charlie than Bruno!

ChippieBeanAndHorro Sun 12-Mar-17 18:54:18

I have two uncles named Bruno (one is called Brunello).

Not a fan of the name. Despite having Italian uncles (actually, I think one is a distant cousin? Idk) with that name I still think it's a dog name.

Plus, there's this horrible flim called Bruno or something, right?

Have you seen the film? 😂😂

Watch the film then please change your mind, maybe for a dog..

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 12-Mar-17 19:08:57

❤️ Bruno

So relieved I'm not the only one that remembers this attrocity grin

joannegrady90 Sun 12-Mar-17 19:15:13

I actually quite enjoyed it 😂 guilty pleasure!

ChippieBeanAndHorro Sun 12-Mar-17 19:27:39

jaonne :D

Well, we all have guilty pleasure, right? Mine are peanutbutter, mayonnaise and lettuce sandwiches.... Or peanutbtter and bacon ones.

UHm, anyway. Whether the OP likes the movie or not.

SHe just can't do that to her baby.

I think you need to have some connection to Italy for it to work.

LittlePaws15 Sun 12-Mar-17 20:12:16

Italy? We are Spanish.

RuthB4 Mon 13-Mar-17 02:43:46

I really like it! Maybe partly because I went to school with a really lovely lad called Bruno.
Go for it!

My son (half Italian) is a Bruno.
It's a very European name as is used widely across France and Germany too (even if it's a bit middle aged now!)
Despite all the camp connotations (the film and bruno from strictly) I always thought it was quite a powerful sounding name
Weirdly we also call ours Brunello but only as we are in wine trade 🍷
It was my choice and I love it (obviously)

RedSandYellowSand Mon 13-Mar-17 06:25:18

I saw 10 year old Bruno this morning. His family are Spanish speakers (but from SA, not Spain).
I like it.

angelicjen Mon 13-Mar-17 06:57:42

I have a baby Bruno! We love it and always get a great reaction. Go for it!
