Art. Sorry but I don't really like any of the other.

There is an entire baby names board you know.

But, as you asked, I think they are all horrible. And really try hard. Sorry.

Roald
Monty
Wolfgang

Sorry I didn't realise there was a baby names board!

Joby (hobby) in Scotland is another word for poo grin

I really like your list of names apart from Joby, Jean and Vito.

Eebahgum Wed 04-Oct-17 17:14:59

From that list I'd really struggle to pick. At a push I think I'd go for Percy. The most important thing op is what are your top 3?

PoundsShillingsPence Wed 04-Oct-17 17:15:16

Sorry - I couldn't pick even one from that list!

BriechonCheese Wed 04-Oct-17 17:15:46

Percy
Monty

Ptol Wed 04-Oct-17 17:15:47

Thanks for the heads up sprinkle! May steer clear of Joby then don't want sniggers from my Scottish relatives. Jean is my favourite! Not sure DH is keen though. Want to get the list down to about five.

Monty if I had to pick one.

Tazerface Wed 04-Oct-17 17:18:26

How are you going to pronounce Jean? I'd the French way - are you French? Pretentious if not and people will call him Jean like the woman's name.

If pronounced like female Jean then I'd go for the spelling Gene, short for Eugene.

PickleSarnie Wed 04-Oct-17 17:19:05

Joby is a Scottish word for Poo btw.

stopdragginmyheartaround Wed 04-Oct-17 17:19:28

Ptoloemy ? Seriously ! Would prob pick Jean, Vito and Art out of that lot.

PickleSarnie Wed 04-Oct-17 17:19:40

Cross post with sprinkle Must type faster!

Ptol Wed 04-Oct-17 17:19:58

I'd pronounce Jean in the same way as Gene, the same was as the female name.

faintlinesquints Wed 04-Oct-17 17:21:19

I thought of poo when I saw Joby! (Scottish here too!)

Bram
Enoch
Wolfgang

Art. Really cool name and the only one I like from your list.

Along similar lines: Ray, short for Raymond

strawberrygate Wed 04-Oct-17 17:22:40

Sorry, but I think they're all awful

Tazerface Wed 04-Oct-17 17:24:27

Then don't use Jean because it's a woman's name! You will look unhinged if someone points it out to you and you say it's Jean pronounced the English way but the spelling is the French way.

ProseccoMamam Wed 04-Oct-17 17:24:41

OP where on earth did you find these monstrosities names and WHY do you want to burden a child with them

LovelyPrep Wed 04-Oct-17 17:26:13

I literally can't pick one, let alone three. They're all terrible. If you absolutely forced me maybe Art...but still no. Don't do that to a child!

Ptol Wed 04-Oct-17 17:26:47

Jean as a unisex name is recognised.

strawberrygate Wed 04-Oct-17 17:27:28

I'd love you to go for Jobby

Ptol Wed 04-Oct-17 17:27:48

I think they seem a bit out there when all together in a list, but if you imagine them in isolation none of them are particularly "out there" just charmingly unusual.
