What do we - the Mumsnet Collective - think of the name "Neo" as a middle name for a boy?

(75 Posts)

Thoughts please?

First name - Aiden..

Nein

No to Neo! No!

And prefer Aidan - but 'tis ds name, so am biased.

Yup, matrix here too.

Very odd combination. Aiden is a lovely name but not paired with Neo.

No not a joke..

Not my baby, but one I witnessed come into the world on Sun.

Perfectly nice normal parents bt the way - not stoned hippies or similar.. but wanting an N middle name as, for own reasons, would like the initials ANT and its a T surname

(I may have spelt Aiden wrong actually - it's not a dead cert yet)

Neo Natal.

llareggub Wed 27-Aug-08 22:02:20

Noel would be better, I think.

Madlentileater Wed 27-Aug-08 22:03:26

neo????? to differentiate from the old/traditional/existing baby???

Weegiemum Wed 27-Aug-08 22:03:29

N names not easy though?

Noah
Nigel
Norman
Nicholas
Nehemiah

none of them great and can't off the top of my head think of others.

preggersplayspop Wed 27-Aug-08 22:04:26

Its seems a bit odd to me. I can understand avoiding certain combinations, like GBH, but don't really get aiming for an ANT combination!

Neo-Platonism
Neo-Nazism
Neo Taliban
Neo-liberalism
Neo-dada

Cant think of anything else neo but it is a prefix that simply means new.

Aidan Neo sounds like 'I don't know' in a comedy Welsh accent.

muggglewump Wed 27-Aug-08 22:05:08

No, but this is surely a joke?

nooka Wed 27-Aug-08 22:05:55

I think it is a very silly name, but as it's a middle name it probably doesn't really matter.

Janni Wed 27-Aug-08 22:06:34

Nathan, Nick, Nutella, Nico

I thought of Noah. And Nathan which is nice but doesn't really go...

2 syllable surname by the way.

differentID Wed 27-Aug-08 22:08:30

It's a name I dislike intensely tbh. Plus, a name starting with the letter N does not flow from the suggested first name. When giving out the full name it will just sound like its one long name because the middle name starts with the same sound the first one ends with. Sorry

Why not Neil?
