Our surname is Jones and hubby wants a 'rugged' first name to go with it. What do you think?

It's the name of a potato variety.

Strange choice hmm

Have you been there? Its full beautiful but of mosquitoes.
I just wouldn't.

JackieNo Mon 11-Aug-08 19:28:50

No. Not keen. Sorry.

Rugged and Yukon don't go together.

NorkyButNice Mon 11-Aug-08 19:29:20

Not to mention the obvious nickname of Yuk...

One of the territories of Canada ,tis certainly rugged.

Not a real name for a boy imo

Omg I read the title and thought it was asking for holiday recommendations...

For a NAME????? Get a grip!!

If your hubby wants a rugged name to go with Jones then try Vinny.

Thanks. Have told hubby definitely no. It was no before but I'm glad to have some back up.

BTW we've both been to the Yukon, and hubby is Canadian.

grin at holiday destination

JuneBugJen Mon 11-Aug-08 19:43:13

ah - then it is not as terrifying as i first thought if he is from Canada.

How about CN tower then?
Its not rugged but it makes a statement!

I think it's so far beyond dumb ass I don't really have words for it.

Yvon of the Yukon

Dynamicnanny Mon 11-Aug-08 19:58:53

It sounds a car dealership

LazyLinePainterJane Mon 11-Aug-08 19:59:48

piratecat, what is wrong with them is that, clearly, they are not potato varieties grin

BrownSuga Mon 11-Aug-08 20:00:31

How about Indiana?
