DH and I really struggling to agree on a boys name. The only one we both really like is Angus. However, there is a sliiigght problem in that this is the nickname that we have previously used for, ahem, DH's baby-making equipment blush

DH says there is no way we can then subject the poor lad to such a name, even though only we would ever know (and obviously would never again refer to DH's tackle by this name!) - is he right?!?!! hmm

I think he probably is... but it's the only name we both love!! hmm

Of course you can use it. Find another name for dhs baby making equipment (if you need one, bit odd imo)

Well... Yes, of course it's a name you both love. grin


I really like the name Angus. It's lovely. I don't think it's that bad (if you stop using it for your DH's penis now). It's not like you'll ever confuse DS with his penis, right? And how would he ever know...?

No. That's grim.

No one will ever know. Personally I would crack on and use it.

No that's weird.

Haha, I don't think I could use it. have you got time to rename the equipment and see f the association fades?

GuinessPunch Sun 19-Mar-17 10:21:23

Angus is terrible.

Ha isuppose and throughthickandthin it's not a nn we really use at all anymore, it was more of a bit of a joke thing when we first got together some years ago. Don't know if that really makes it much better though!

I love Angus! I'd still use it. You'll soon associate the name with the baby and forget all about the other connotations wink

Maybe stay away from people names when renaming his penis. Just in case you go on to have more children.

I love the name Angus. Not very penisy though.

I think Angus is a lovely name for a boy. There was one in my dd's year at primary school.

Just rename DH's tackle to something like Percy and name your baby boy Angus. Who is going to know unless you tell them?

Just remember to inform DH that you have renamed his manhood. grin

If you call your son Angus... Just make sure he knows how to spell the g...

I like the name, it's really nice smile

Call the penis penis in the future? Or a name you know you'll never ever choose?

People often seem desperate to find tenuous reasons not to use a name, and this one is really reaching.

A name you used for his penis as a joke years ago? Who cares??
