it stinks

Reggie sounda a bit Ronnieish - so chavvy IMHO!

I like it.

It reminds me of a tiny baby I met at NCT group called Reg because his parents were yet to register him. But it stuck and he was cute in a wrinkly walnut new baby kind of way.

But then I like names that make small boys sound like gangsters.

I know a baby called Reggie - it's sweet!

Reginald is horrid, though.

I actually snorted when I read this.

So that's a no from me. As Deborah Meaden would say.

do not do it

you would have to be as cool as Vernon Kay to get away with a name like Vernon or Reginald

and if he is not then he would be bullied forever

no no no

I quite like it.

CrushWithEyeliner Fri 15-Aug-08 20:25:56

OK will pass it on grin- so what about just Reggie then?

derelicte Fri 15-Aug-08 20:34:32

I love Reggie (but couldn't use it for theoretical DS2 as DS1 is Ronnie....thanks a lot MadameCastafiore hmm grin).

Bewilderbeast Fri 15-Aug-08 20:52:33

My grandpa was Reggie I think it's a lovely name
Reginald is not good though

Spidermama Fri 15-Aug-08 20:54:56

I really like it and what's more I predict a majorcomeback for it in a few years.
