Dislike the others.

My other favourite names are
Struan
Campbell
Johnston

Dylan and Angus (depends where you live though)

MakemineaGandT Fri 04-Jul-08 13:39:03

Well, only Dylan and Angus are "proper" names really aren't they? Think the others might look a bit silly in years to come.

I guess Angus would be my choice from that list.

Like dylan but know loads of little boys called it
I quite like brody too

MrsMattie Fri 04-Jul-08 13:39:15

Dylan the only name I could say anything nice about!

pointydog Fri 04-Jul-08 13:39:37

"I'll cut off your johnson!!"

bluenosesaint Fri 04-Jul-08 13:39:55

I don't like any of those. Sorry.

wessexgirl Fri 04-Jul-08 13:40:37

Dylan is nice.

Fimbo Fri 04-Jul-08 13:44:37

Its JohnsTon wink

greenelizabeth Fri 04-Jul-08 13:45:53

Angus but Fergus is even better. Love Fergus, Gus and Angus is nice too.

The others were all very odd tbh.

pointydog Fri 04-Jul-08 13:46:32

I saw that, fimbo. But it still just makes me laugh and think of that line

mum2oandh Fri 04-Jul-08 13:47:34

love brody and angus, if they work well with your surname, would like dylan too, but i know sooooooooooo many grin

Kimi Fri 04-Jul-08 13:48:22

Dylan

thanks for feedback. you have to have thick skin to put names out...very hard to come up with boy names that aren't boring. mannix is irish by the way. my problem with dylan is how common it is too.

greenelizabeth Fri 04-Jul-08 14:10:20

Is Mannix Irish!? I have heard of Manus, pronounced MANNus, with emphasis on first syllable. A Gaelic version of Magnus. But Mannix? Irish?

What about Lennox? That has the same feel as Mannix, but sounds less invented. Len is better than 'man' as a basis for a boys name!

Brody is the sort of name that Americans choose 'because it is Irish'. Brody to an Irish person seems only like a sur name.

Dylan and Angus for me too

lalabigbird Fri 04-Jul-08 16:54:01

Harris (instead of harrison)
Harley (instead of Harvey)
Oliver
Toby
william
liam

Out of your list - Angus. In fact, I do rather like it.

Angus

Angus sounds the best to me. Lovely background to the name - "..Irish.. god of love, youth and poetic inspiration" - Aonghus / Angus

Ledodgy Wed 16-Jul-08 16:40:09

Angus definately. I love that name but dp and his family vetoed it.

OurHamsterisevil Wed 16-Jul-08 17:22:31

If you live in Scotland, Angus is quite common these days. I like Mannix, Brody - but spelt Brodie and Forde - spelt Ford.

To those who said they are made up. I really don't think you've seen enough baby books
