DS is Jasper.

DH likes Hugo. I need persuading, but Hughie isn't a bad nickname.

Views please!!

(Think DH only likes it 'cos he can bellow out of the front door when they're older "Hugh - Jas" - Geddit!!)

lol at Hugh- Jas grin

Hugo is not to my personl taste...but it would work well with Jasper

Anglepoise Mon 08-Sep-08 22:25:44

Afraid I'm not keen, though it does go quite well with Jasper. I know one who is known as Hughie with a hard G (hew-gee I guess).

Like it. Goes well with your ds1.

LynetteScavo Mon 08-Sep-08 22:28:08

I love it, love it, love it!
DS2 was going to be Hugo (DH wasn't as keen as me and would have called hime Hugh hmm) but when he was born, he just wasn't a Hugo. sad

I like it but I think that I prefer Hugh.

BreeVanderCampLGJ Mon 08-Sep-08 22:33:24

Love both Hugh and Hugo.

erwfran Mon 08-Sep-08 22:49:40

yes if you live in chelsea, no if you live in Bolton. Love Jasper

I love Hugo, one of my all time favourite names (and I had a very lucious ex named that wink)

In fact, all the hugos I've eve known have been gorgeous.

Bringbackmybonnietome Mon 08-Sep-08 22:53:09

Yep depends where you live, but I love it.

I love Hugh also, and a little less poncey if you are concerned about that, or if you do live in Bolton. Although still maybe dangerousgrin.

I have to agree with LL, Hughie ruins a perfectly lovely name. Don't do it!

oh god, do you really have to ask.

Love it! The son I shall never have is Henry Hugo.

Hughie, though, is best avoided if (like me) you grew up at a time when 'Hughie and Ruth' was a childish expression for being sick!

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 09-Sep-08 13:32:31

Hugo equals 'Chinless Wonder' for me I'm afraid!

belgo Tue 09-Sep-08 13:35:13

I like Hugo and Hugh.

bamboostalks Tue 09-Sep-08 13:36:46

Love Hugo, really fab name. Hughie not so much.

nervousal Tue 09-Sep-08 13:47:46

I like Hugo - good friend's DS is a Hugo - though they live in Spain - so its not so unusual

MrsMattie Tue 09-Sep-08 22:05:58

I really dislike it. Pretentious.

marymungoandmidge Tue 09-Sep-08 22:07:25

Nooooo - but really like Hugh...

MerryMarigold Tue 09-Sep-08 22:59:00

It's okay if you're Nigerian. If not, it's definitely TTH (Trying Too Hard).

belgo Wed 10-Sep-08 14:36:55

Is Hugo a Nigerian name?

TheNaughtiestGirlIsaMonitor Wed 10-Sep-08 15:37:55

Love Hugo.

LOL at Hugo being Nigerian!!
