What do people think of Red or Redmond for a boy? I saw the American Red Gerard win Gold in the slopestyle snowboarding today. I hadn't heard the name before but like it.

I know one. It’s not short for anything - just Red.

I like it!

Love it, but prefer it for a girl <helpful>

Redmond is apparently an Iirish boy's name. I rather like it!

I like Red, not so keen on Redmond

Reminds me of Red from Fraggle Rock

Wasn't it the dads name in the 70s show?

I like it

I looove Redmond/Red.

I commented on how great a name it was when we were watching Red Gerard.

Use it!

I'm Irish and only know Redmond as a surname. Red would be a nickname in Ireland.

I prefer Red to Redmond, but in all honesty I personally dislike both

Charismam Sun 11-Feb-18 19:53:15

I knew one. It was his real name.

I think Red as a name would be weird in job interviews (especially if ginger as it does sound like a nickname) but Redmond or Redford shortened to Red sound good. You'd also need to be careful if your last name is a noun or sounds like one - I knew someone whose full name was something like Blue Robin and it came off as very twee.

Charismam Sun 11-Feb-18 19:56:09

Redmond is a normal name. Red short for redmond is not too weird for an interview!! 🤣

Knew this would be about the snowboarder.

Makes me think of Jilly Cooper! But I do love it and think it’s cool although I knew someone irl and his name was sometimes misheard as Reg - not quite so cool 😂

I like Red, not keen on Redmond — seems more like a surname than a first.

Petalflowers Sun 11-Feb-18 20:56:37

I thought it was quite cool also, and well done on Red on getting the gold.

Live it. Was my 'boy' name but I had 2 girls instead.

I quite like it maybe spelt as Redd..
