hw2004 Sun 03-Aug-08 20:30:25

I have to say I was considering this aswell but haven't had much positive reaction from family/friends. Not sure why as I think it's lovely

paolosgirl Sun 03-Aug-08 20:30:38

Not keen on it. Makes me think of posh floppy haired fellows.

RubySlippers Sun 03-Aug-08 20:36:48

ooh yes ... good name

PrincessPeaHead Sun 03-Aug-08 20:37:34

Milo also nice.. as an abbreviation of miles or a name in itself.

Lol PPH, there are certainly a few posters that could be Milesmummy, that's the first thing I thought when I saw the thread.

Nice name.

I like it but DH always says - miles and miles for sweet F all - every time I mention it!

FranSanDisco Sun 03-Aug-08 20:50:15

Yes, my dad says "miles behind" when he hears the name wink

milkgoddessmakesthefinestmilk Sun 03-Aug-08 20:52:00

i've said it reminds me of miles from this life.
yum.

mrsgboring Sun 03-Aug-08 21:06:11

Nice but it means soldier which puts me off somewhat.

paolosgirl Sun 03-Aug-08 21:09:47

It does sound posh in a floppy haired sort of way - but that's OK grin

You could always go for the "we want to be you-neeq" approach and tell everyone that you're pronouncing it My-Les

cyteen Sun 03-Aug-08 21:17:34

Or Mee-lay grin

paolosgirl Sun 03-Aug-08 21:19:01

LOL - even better! grin

Miles is a man wearing a cravat..must be that sitcom Frasier that makes me think that.

LadyThompson Mon 04-Aug-08 12:07:57

I thought Frasier's brother was Niles. Or was it Nyles? Anyhoo, Miles is nice but please don't use it because I might want to grin

I like it.

It's a bit of a family name for me. I have a (v. intelligent, good looking, strong, kind) 20 yo cousin called Miles, who was named for our great uncle, who was named for his uncle (and so on ad finitem). smile
