I saw this name on another forum.

Apparently a Cornish form of James/ Jacob which I haven't come across before.

What do people think- too unconventional??

Sorry, unless you are Cornish or live in Cornwall, or pref. both, I think it sounds rather, um, trying to hard to be different.

sounds fine to me but might be mistaken for I ago

But then again, it's your baby, call him what you like!

this here is jago

Custardo- why do you frequently seem to make negative, rude comments to people? It's perfectly reasonable to offer an honest opinion with the objective being to help but please try to be polite!

I wonder what names you do like as you seem to be negative about about most of them!

don't mind it, but second the idea that it may get confused with iago, which is the welsh version of james
also, iago is touted as being one of the most evil characters ever (in othello), but that's just my ponce-tastic take on it
if you like it, go for it

jesus lady - that really wasn't me being nasty -

don't ask - i goodled the name - thats what came up

if you like it use it and don't bloody ask!

Rather than being 'un' conventional, I think it's bang on trend really. I would worry that there are little clusters of Jagos all over south west london. I know of only two though, saying that.

trying to think if we've got any here, and i can't remember hearing of any
we've got a django and an inigo....any good to you?

AintMisbehavin Wed 13-Aug-08 15:22:34

I like it.

CuckooClockWorkOrange Wed 13-Aug-08 15:28:31

ps, I do like it though.

CuckooClockWorkOrange Wed 13-Aug-08 15:32:56

ps2, having spent too much time on American boards as well, I think that it's quite an American characteristic to instantly associate every name (outside the top 100) to something; either a Disney character, doll, toy, pop star, computer game, soap star - and to then consider it 'unusable'..... I don't get it.

I am not complaining about your opinion, simply the fact that you find it necessary to use use rude language constantly!!

I am referring also to comments on previous threads (not this one alone) where you also been unpleasant.

I'm afraid your response above has just proven my point; you have managed to swear twice in just a few words!!

Podrick Wed 13-Aug-08 15:36:21

For some reason it brings to my mind an insane horse

MerryMarigold Wed 13-Aug-08 15:36:31

I think it's really poncey personally. Jacob and James are nice though. You don't HAVE to be 'different'.

MatNanPlus Wed 13-Aug-08 15:38:14

Have looked after a Jago a very chilled out chappie.

bythepowerofgreyskull Wed 13-Aug-08 15:40:10

Went to school with lovely Jago..
very handsome


OK I fancied him

Tortington Wed 13-Aug-08 15:42:02

quote me the rude language - i think my initial which you refered was three words....

who are you all of a sudden the custy monitor?

i dont like the name get over it.

Tortington Wed 13-Aug-08 15:42:59

blonde essex woman comes to mind screaming "JAGOOOOO" meaning of course Diego

Weegiemum Wed 13-Aug-08 15:51:26

Dont like. Unless you have a real connection. Otherwise poncey/trying too hard.

CuckooClockWorkOrange Wed 13-Aug-08 16:06:10

What about Jago as a nn for either Jacob or James? That is a bit safer, bit more classic. If o names turn out to be Darren/Gary iykwim.

James Gordon is a bit Thomas the Tank Engine, but it could be a really un poncey way of getting to the nn Jago.

I love Jago, it is DS3's middle name. Dh wouldn't agree to it as first name for either DS2 or 3 but I snuck it in as a middle name for DS3. love it love it love it...and we aren't cornish.

minouminou Wed 13-Aug-08 20:34:57
