Neither are to my taste but both are nice choices . I prefer Drew.

Drew. Living in Scotland I know a few. Nice name.

I like Drew, I had a horrible boss called Guy and I just can't see past that.

Thank you both. I appreciate that @Whatsyourflava I know they are not everyone's taste but both have family connections so are meaningful and I want to stay away from current trends

Drew is more acceptable than Guy.

BabyLlamaZen Mon 29-Jun-20 16:17:29

Neither but Drew.

I think it's a good idea to stay away from current trends and that probably why a few people here aren't being positive. I bet the name Drew would really grow on me!

Whatsyourflava Mon 29-Jun-20 17:00:11

I don't think the name Guy would grow on me as sounds a bit macho to me
Tough Guy
Bad Guy
I'm just not keen

Lavenderbluesy Mon 29-Jun-20 17:00:27

I prefer Guy. Good strong name.

BlueJeanBabeh Mon 29-Jun-20 17:04:11

@Whatsyourflava I can see the use of guy as a word can be a little distracting. That's DH's favourite. I really adore Drew, it's a personal family connection and I just find it really fresh, handsome and wholesome sounding. Thank you for your input, really appreciate it.

I really like Guy.
It's not a name I've heard of in a long-time.
