Can you please give your opinion. And preference on the following names for a boy.

They will have a brother called Luca, and their surname will be Jones.

Finn Jones or Milo Jones ?

We are very torn between the two names, and would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you

Thank you.

Being Chelsea fans, his middle name is named after Frank Lampard :-)

Congratulations! Beautiful name.

He's arrived and he is doing well despite being a month early.

We named him Milo Frankie Jones.

Thank you everyone for your advice x

Milo xx

@dj1905 there are hundreds of Milo’s out there as the official statistics go! It’s a great name, a bit unusual but not at all “out there”

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 20:12:27

A good friend of mine is called Miles.

Definitely milo

Also never came accross a dog named Milo nor would I associate it with a dog.
Go for it!

robin04031402 Sun 12-Jan-20 19:02:28

I prefer Milo!
Could you not go for Miles/Myles as an alternative and his nn could be Milo if you wanted?

Yes there are dogs with that name but who cares? There’s dogs called Jack, George, Molly, Bella but it doesn’t stop people naming their children them.

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 18:23:49

I'm glad to hear that there are other Milo's out there.

I didn't know if it was very well known?

I know a few little Milos and i think it works better with Luca and your surname than Finn.

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 14:18:57

I understand the dog reference, but the chocolate reference doesn't phase me.

I've never heard of it! Someone else said that before, but it's not a brand that we are aware of. Thanks

No problem. There’s lots of places to find ONS official data online.

Here’s a good website though:

I can't get the past the chocolate milk drink reference for Milo either, and agree it makes me think of dog names!
Finn, Finley or even Flynn.

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 11:03:00

Thanks for the reassurance.

Can you please advise where you found the statistics?

Appreciate your help

Had you thought of Flynn?

Flymetothestars Sun 12-Jan-20 10:29:20

Milo is a great names. Over 550 baby boys were named Milo in 2018 and it will have been even more in 2019. It’s clearly not seen as a dogs name. Remember that any name can be used as dogs name. I know a dog called Keith. No dogs called Milo.

You could always consider registering him as “Miles” but just calling him Milo day to day. I’d just register as Milo though. Great name but I love Finn too

Milo is OK (don't know any dogs called Milo, but do know a horse!) You could go with Finley as it will still get shortened to Finn.
