What do you think of this name I cam across last week?

It's a Welsh name pron. (IIRC) something like Tidder. (Welsh MNers will probably come on and correct me now...) You'd get a lot of comments about Henry VIII - imagine the father of the bride speech on his wedding day...

Goes nicely with Rose as a second name.

I knew a man called Tudor once. He was an actor/director, rather effeminate, bit of a luvvie, and the name actually suited him down to the ground.

Not sure that's the effect you'd be looking for though.

Not far off Edam. smile
It's sort of Tiddir.
I like it Welsh style not English though as instantly think of Ten Pole Tudor.

And what's wrong with Swords of a Thousand Men, exactly, MD? <hard stare>

Awful lol

moondog Fri 01-Aug-08 11:16:13

I bloody love it actually. grin Have feeling could be a good gym song for iPod.

cornsilk Fri 01-Aug-08 11:17:04

Swords of a thousand men is a top tune!

edam Fri 01-Aug-08 11:17:56

I met Ed Tudor Pole once. Top man but you can see the results of years of sex, drugs and rock and roll...

Really?? grin
Isn't he actually real life nobility or summat? Ah, reminds me of being in boarding schools, playing singles on the Dansetter in the rec.

What do I think?

thoughtless parents
poor kid

I think he's a public school boy and if Tudor Pole really is his surname then he probably is descended from yer genuine aristrocrats - the Poles were a jolly important family in the 16th century (I had a thing about the Tudors during my teenage years).

moondog Fri 01-Aug-08 11:27:01

Ooh me too. History A level. What I don't know about Tudors is noone's business. perkin Warbeck?? Bring him on!!

edam Fri 01-Aug-08 11:28:33

Also did History 'A' but sadly there was no Tudor option. So I did the Stuarts - was as close as I could get.

Hated The Other Boleyn Girl, btw. Horrible biased nonsense.

I quite like it.

But then I have Welsh Hankerings.

DH does a disgusted little cough whenever I mention the name Taliesin.

Probably for the best.

moondog Fri 01-Aug-08 11:30:07

Taliesin is a lovely name.

moondog Fri 01-Aug-08 11:30:46

Was it crap? Though it would have been.

EffiePerine Fri 01-Aug-08 11:31:31


what next, Plantagenet?

edam Fri 01-Aug-08 11:31:44

Ooh, I really like Taliesin. Would be a tad tricky as we live in England, though (and both dh and I are English, really - our fathers are Welsh). So I gave ds a Welsh name that is easy for English people to deal with.

Yup, the book was bad and the film was ten times worse. Thought it might at least look interesting as a visual spectacle but no.
