Is this on a par with Keith? I can't make my mind up if it's a bit different and cool or just really boring!!!

poohbears Sun 17-Dec-17 20:34:03

I must add DH is Scottish and we'd love to use a name of Scottish origin

CharisMama Sun 17-Dec-17 20:35:09

No. A keith is 40-55 and a douglas is 55-70 so Douglqs bound to sound more fashiinable. It was on my list 15 years ago tho

I love it! And it's nothing like Keith smile

ZuluWarrior Sun 17-Dec-17 20:38:02

We have a Douglas. He is four and supercool grin. I am also Scottish.

NC4now Sun 17-Dec-17 20:38:48

I love it. I really like Dougie (pn Duggie) as a nickname too.

I'd have had Douglas for a boy. It's really nice and has nicknames that kind of grow with it. We're Scottish too.

I like it.

ChocolateCrunch Sun 17-Dec-17 20:55:18

I like it, and wouldn't put it in the same category as Keith!

BiglyBadgers Sun 17-Dec-17 20:57:33

Dougie is officially super cool and amazing since Twin Peaks season 3 came out. True fact! grin

Before I even opened this thread I thought :
No way, it's right up there with Barry and Keith. grin

LoveInTokyo Sun 17-Dec-17 21:11:26

I think Douglas is cute. Keith is awful though. (Apologies to any DMs of little Keiths out there.)

buttercup54321 Sun 17-Dec-17 21:13:44

Its horrible. Duggie the druggie. Yes Barry Keith and Trevor!!!

What do you call a man with a spade? Doug!

What do you call a man without a spade? Douglas!!

I think it's quite a good name actually! I really like it

Ok for Scottish kid.

RosesInTheHospital Sun 17-Dec-17 21:50:04

I love Douglas. Was an option with DS.

Joinourclub Sun 17-Dec-17 21:50:09

Much better than Keith.

DorothyBastard Sun 17-Dec-17 21:55:29

I have a 2yo Douglas (nn Dougie). It’s a great name. Everyone recognises it/knows how to spell it, but it’s fairly uncommon.

eggandchips5 Sun 17-Dec-17 22:03:48

First reading this, I was going to comment that it's awful. Doug is a dog's name.

However, I just saw someone mention Dougie. I think this could be quite cute. I don't like Douglas though. Isn't there a Dougie in McFly?

mondler Sun 17-Dec-17 22:06:19

I think its cute

Idontmeanto Sun 17-Dec-17 22:54:29

I only know one, in his mid twenties, and he’s lovely! I think it is both cute and elegant. I really like it. Definately not “like Keith.”

BrokenBattleDroid Mon 18-Dec-17 15:58:12

I remember hearing of a little Doug (Douglas) about 8 years ago and wondering what possessed his parents as its clearly a Keith or Gary type name.

I was wrong, it's lovely and not in the same league at all! Also love Gregor or Gregory which feel similar.

MollyHuaCha Mon 18-Dec-17 16:02:57

I like it.

Three Dougies in my school (England); Y6, Y3 and Reception.
