I know someone who has just called their baby this and I think its lovely but not something I would have gone for (too traditional me!).

tiredemma Tue 08-Jul-08 14:43:04

no, I dont think I like it.

DorrisMcWhirter Tue 08-Jul-08 14:44:26

Would just remind me of:
a) That kid from Grange Hill in the years gone past
b) That prat from Big Brother

Pity though because I like it!

There is a Ziggy in Lazy Town too is there not?

I want to spill the names of the siblings but I am scared incase she is a MNer!

Not keen, but I have heard Ziggy short for the name Zygmunt. I think Zygmunt is German or Polish. Sorry too tired to look it up to check.

The kid has to be uber cool to pull off a name like that. And it does remind me of ziggy thin lips from BB.

my friend has a dog called Ziggy after Ziggy Marley.

There is a Ziggy is DS's year at school.

He's only ever known as Ziggy, but infact it's not his real name.

Alishanty Tue 08-Jul-08 21:28:58

Sounds like more of a nickname than a proper name imo.

iMum Wed 09-Jul-08 16:13:00

I worked with a lady called Ziggy once, it actually suited her!

Takver Wed 09-Jul-08 19:50:23

I've met a Ziggy too, definitely suited her, though I'd just assumed it was a nickname.

I know a German where it's short for Sigmund / Siegmund (as in Sigmund Freud). It does sound rather like "Zygmunt" when Germans say it. I think it's spelt Siggi or Siggy over there though.
