Thoughts on Vincent...

I don't know any Vincent's so I'm really not sure about it. DH loves it and thinks he'll be a cheeky chap probably with the nickname Vinnie, but I'm not 100% because an old work colleague's dog was Vinnie! Haha

LOVE it and it was one of my top two if I'd had boys. Vinnie OR Vincent are lovely. It's boyish and fun and yet perfect for a little boy and a grown man.

Sorry don't like it very much, still an old man's name to me like Keith or Raymond.

I loved it. Only reason we didn't call any of ours Vincent was because DH's first grown up car was affectionately known as Vinny

I know one little Vincent (vinnie) and I just don't really like it (although I'd NEVER let on IRL).

It's very much in the same league as Gary or Kenneth for me.

Vinny is fine but Vince is right there with Keith I'm afraid.
I quite like Raymond and Gary.

Very nice, love Vinnie.

I love it!

Starry, starry night

Reminds me of Vincent Vega

FenellaMaxwellsPony Wed 05-Jul-17 17:31:27

Starry, starry night was my first thought too. Which is unfortunate considering it's about suicide...

Old man's name.

BasinHaircut Wed 05-Jul-17 17:33:20

I like it.

MrsChopper Wed 05-Jul-17 17:33:29

Old man's name

Yes, and that's exactly why I love it! DS also has an old man's name smile

Abetes Wed 05-Jul-17 17:34:52

Hate it. Sorry

I know one Vincent, man, creative and quirky really suits his name.
And I know a child vinnie. Bit of a thug, parents are always putting pictures up on FB of him sticking his fingers up at the camera or making a fist, always in polo tops with collar up type child.
Love Vincent can't shake that image of vinnie

I'm not keen on the 'old man name' trend - I even dislike those that are popular like Arthur and Stanley.
I think Vincent is worse than those though-it's more like Norman, Nigel and Kevin.

DramaAlpaca Wed 05-Jul-17 17:42:41

It's one of the nicer 'old man' names, but it's not my style.

MumBod Wed 05-Jul-17 18:51:39

My DP is called Vincent.

I love Vincent. Vince - not so much.

Vinnie - never.

Vincent = Van Gogh.

Vince = Just Good Friends.

Vinnie = Mafia.

I really like it, especially Vinny.
