My husband really likes the name Teilo for a boy (a Welsh saint name, and we do have links, so not completely random) but I think it would constantly be misheard as Taylor or be misspelt. Any thoughts?

Pronounced How, OP? Tee-Lo? Tay-Lo? Ty-Lo?

I like it. It's quite like Tayto (which is a very popular Irish crisp) but if you're not in Ireland I wouldn't worry about that. Go for it. Much nicer than Taylor.

I like it. It would be nice as a middle name too if you don't use it as a first name.

I like it!

It's cool, unusual but not too wacky.

Love it.

I like it my DS has a very welsh name just a jumble of consonants and we've never lived in Wales, I've a Welsh dad and we love his name

Really nice, OP. smile

Love Welsh names and I've never heard of it - go for it. Also I like names ending in o.

I had to say it a few times out loud (try THAT when you're strap hanging on a bus with a phone in one hand) but...I like it!

DramaAlpaca Mon 16-Oct-17 15:57:46

I've never heard it before. I like it a lot, it's very nice.

Ah wow, I was expecting more thumbs-down. Maybe he has a better ear than I think! Thanks :-)

Loyly Mon 16-Oct-17 17:26:07

I like it a lot.

Liadain Mon 16-Oct-17 17:27:54

Also reminded me of Tayto crisps. I like it a lot, though!

SummatFishyEre Mon 16-Oct-17 17:29:32

I like it

SuperFurrySasquatch Mon 16-Oct-17 17:33:12

Would be pronounced Ty-low here as in Llandeilo.
I like it.

FizzyGreenWater Mon 16-Oct-17 18:04:23

Yes very oten depending on accent would sound more like Tie-lo. Lovely name though, not seen often now.

I like Teifion too.

FizzyGreenWater Mon 16-Oct-17 18:05:01

...which would be sort of Tie-vee-on

Jooni Mon 16-Oct-17 18:07:17

It’s nice. I like the sound of this one too ^

Did you use the name?! My cat is called Teilo! I know that’s not very exciting but as I don’t have kids it’s as near as I’m gonna get!

BigcatLittlecat Wed 16-May-18 22:26:51

It's pronounced more Tie-Low around here too! Somewhere between Tie and Tay really! Love it!

buttercup54321 Thu 17-May-18 03:57:37

Quite pleasant really though I think it will get confused with Taylor.

RedDwarves Thu 17-May-18 04:00:14

I like it.
