Me and DH were playing around on the Kinder app and one of our few matches was Scout. DH had never even considered it and the more he thinks about it the more he loves it. I feel like hormones have made me slightly insane around names.

So what does the mumsnet jury think?

Good enough for the Willis's!!

Who are the Willis's 🤔?!

I think the mumsnet jury will be agaisnt. I know a little Scout not quiet 1 yet but I think it’s adorable & suits her smile

Not a fan here.

I don't like the sound of it, it's really harsh and reminds me of 'scab' - I don't know why!

I like it!

SleepWarrior Sun 16-Dec-18 15:40:54

I do like it but probably more as a nickname or middle name that the child gets known as. In TKAMB she's Jean isn't she?

Sorry, I don't like it.

AdaColeman Sun 16-Dec-18 15:42:56

I'm not keen, though alright as a NN I suppose.

Twickerhun Sun 16-Dec-18 15:45:48

I like it

MrsScamander Sun 16-Dec-18 15:48:57

I'm not too keen, but then I tend to lean towards more traditional (some may say boring) names

KaliforniaDreamz Sun 16-Dec-18 15:49:23

love it

Caselgarcia Sun 16-Dec-18 15:49:24

Think of them as an adult with the name Scout.

BestZebbie Sun 16-Dec-18 15:50:50

A perfect name for a puppy!

Sarahjconnor Sun 16-Dec-18 15:51:41

I know a Scout. Full name "Jean Louise Scout" and Scout as the nickname so there is no doubt who she's named after smile. She is bf with a girl called Gem(ma) haha

Scout?! You can't be serious!

Melstarrynight Sun 16-Dec-18 15:55:54

The vtech puppy toy is called scout. That was my first thought. It's very annoying.

Moominfan Sun 16-Dec-18 15:56:25

It's an amazing name and also the name of my cat.

TeenTimesTwo Sun 16-Dec-18 15:57:55

Agree. It needs to be Jean Louise with nickname Scout. 'Tis the only way.

CanSurvive Sun 16-Dec-18 15:58:07

I actually really like it

DramaAlpaca Sun 16-Dec-18 16:00:59

Scout is a seriously ugly name.

Chocolatecoffeeaddict Sun 16-Dec-18 16:05:53

Horrendous, sorry. Celebrities can get away with it as they don't live the usual day to day life, but for us normal peeps it could make life difficult.

SinglePringle Sun 16-Dec-18 16:07:30

Absolutely love it. She’s one of my heroines and I’ve always wanted to use it. Beautiful. Strong, ballsy yet feminine.

daisypond Sun 16-Dec-18 16:13:01

But her name is Jean Louise. Scout is her nickname.
