Dp has mentioned that he likes this. I'm not sure.
Opinions would be helpful.

If you have a girl will you call her Becky?

I don't like it, sorry.

barnaby's a great name, I know of a cute little boy with the name, normally shortened to 'barney'.

I have a Barnaby. In terms of nicknames he gets Barnes, or Barnaboy, but not yet Barney, which I don't like so much.

And yes, I do sometimes call him Barnaby Bear ...

Don't like it. Sorry.

I love it - was on list for DS but I was overruled.

Eeeek. No.

We too have a Barnaby! He refuses to be called anything else than full on Barnaby, and frankly neither me nor any of my friends (bar one) has ever heard of Barnaby bear nor ever mentioned it.

MrsMattie Mon 18-Aug-08 18:00:35

No.

EffiePerine Mon 18-Aug-08 18:04:36

My first true love was a Barnaby. Everyone called him Barnes. I like it.

My friend's DH is Barnaby. It's a fantastic name!

nancy75 Mon 18-Aug-08 19:55:54

my best friend is called barnaby, i love the name.

My mate has a Barnaby and he's always been called Barney, wouldn't have been a name I'd have chosen but I quite like it, mainly because the Barney we know is a sweetie.

PootyApplewater Mon 18-Aug-08 19:57:36

Love it! smile
