Personally, not for me. But it's not up to me. If YOU like it, that's all that matters

mmm, no - it's trying too hard I think - fine for a dog or teddy bear

My ds2 has it as one of his middle names. Flat Stanley was slightly the inspiration.

It was exdp's choice bu I have grown to love it.

A friend has it for her v v new DS. I thought it was really odd when i first heard it, but its totally grown on me, and now I really quite like it!

Ooh well twice as many 'love it's as 'hate it's so far. Both DP and I love it and will probably use it - was just interested to see if we were alone smile

I have a nephew called Stanley, once I said at work that he had been born, so many other people knew babies called Stanley as well.

Strange how names come around

I think there's one at a toddler group I go to. Always sounds odd when he's called.

I like Stan. I wouldn't choose Stanley, but I have objection to it.

I love it but I'm afraid I will always associated it with a man putting his pregnant girlfriend in the boot of his car and driving off a bridge.
Hope thats not a downer grin
