DD has been watching a TV show that has a male Wren in it, she likes it for DS. What do you think?

Awful. It's a bird.
It is nicer than Pigeon.

Love this name for a boy or a girl

This is a zombie thread. What did you decide @frackley

It’s a Welsh boy’s name, it’s quite popular here in Wales. I think it’s beautiful, ignore the negativity!

It does sound like a girls name.

Not a fan for either sex I'm afraid.

Wren as it is spelled can be confused with Ren but if you have a special meaning to it then I don't see any reason why you should not go with it.

I definitely see it as a girl's name

No. Bad for a girl, worse for a boy.

Has your DD actually finished Pretty Little Liars yet? I won't spoil anything but Wren probably isn't someone you'd want to name a child after!

I love Wren for a boy. I knew the name would be from PLL as I loved that show (until the final episode where I wanted to reclaim the last however many years of my life)!

I'm thinking that actually Wren for a boy (and Ezra ... another characters name) will be really popular the next few years.

Ooooh not families discussing baby names instead of random strangers! Whatever next? Get a grip

Kevin bacons character in Footloose was Ren McCormack. Always loved his name and I grew up loving the film. I think the names great for a male.. I also watch pretty little liars though so I've heard it more for a make than female, great name for either sex smile

Ren is ok, definitely not Wren for a boy.

I think there are more suitable birds after which to name your son.

Ren for a boy.
Wren for a girl.

I like it.

I think it sounds a bit 'weak'...can't imagine a big strapping rugby player being called Wren.

My girl is Wren. I know it's unisex but it does have a more feminine feel to me. ( well, obviously 🙄🙄🙄)

whitehorsesdonotlie Sun 15-Oct-17 22:44:52

No. Just no.

I know a boy Wren. I'm on the west coast of Canada though. Here it's not out of place at all.

Helen George named their baby Wren. I think it is lovely for a girl.

Too soppy.

Mischa123 Sun 15-Oct-17 20:01:31

I know someone who has had a boy called Wren in the last month or so

ladybirdsaredotty Sun 15-Oct-17 19:01:40

I quite like it but maybe as a shorter version of a longer name, as mentioned by others.

Don't get the angst over siblings suggesting names. My 3 and 6 year olds are suggesting for this baby. Obviously we have the veto and will go with what we want in the end, but it's nice for them to feel involved. Especially at 17, I'd imagine!
