I like it, DH does and most important my dearest mother gives it her seal of approval! grin

What the general opinion on it though as I haven't heard it used very often?

YES Lovely, like names that can;t be shortened

There is one in dd's class at school. It's the kind of name that grows iykwim.

MamaG Sun 27-Jul-08 22:07:06

i love it - dp wont - he said he 'might' as a middle name!

Quite like Guy Alexander. It goes with our surname as well.

When I was very young I had the most enormous crush on a boy called Guy, it has made me very fond of the name. I've never met a Guy who wasn't dark and good-looking (if a little short). smile

I wouldn't mind a gay son!

He could work for MAC as a makeup artist and get me cheap makeup. wink

It's my grandad's name, and I love it.

He wasn't gay grin

Really don't like it. Sorry.

Janni Sun 27-Jul-08 22:14:33

It's fine as long as it goes well with your surname.

Guy isn't a gay name- Guy of Gisborne was much hotter than puny old Robin Hood.

bikerunski Sun 27-Jul-08 22:27:12

Like it. It is can be used in France to be short for Guiellme (sp?), French version of William.

gus is even nicer....

ranting Sun 27-Jul-08 22:28:36

Well I know a Guy and he is definitely not gay and he is a very nice chap, so because I associate the name with someone I know, I like it.

Pannacotta Sun 27-Jul-08 22:32:08

I love it, it is DS2's middle name. Not quite sure why we didnt just call him Guy, but there you are!

Nappyzoneneedsanewname Sun 27-Jul-08 22:39:52

MarmadukeScarlet Sun 27-Jul-08 22:46:38

With bran, nappy and jimjams

My DH's hottest friend is called Guy, def NOT gay...tall, blonde, rugged ex officer and sailing type...swoon.

pgwithnumber3 Sun 27-Jul-08 22:50:22

I hope if I have a DS called Guy, he lives up to the name!

Millarkie Sun 27-Jul-08 22:57:14

It's a great name. I know a particularly gorgeous Guy.

(but not if pronounced Goo-ie, as one of my friend's friends named her baby)

ninedragons Sun 27-Jul-08 23:07:21

Love it.
