What does anyone think? Our parents HATE it, but I think it's lovely. Although don't like thought of it being shortened to Carl...

Makes me think of luggage, I'm afraid!

Oh no... That's not very positive!! It reminds me of Carlton Palmer the footballer, who DH and I both think is pretty cool!

Anyone actually LIKE it?? Or will we have a little boy with a name everyone hates? And anyone have any ideas about what would work as a middle name? Thanks

There's a place here in Nottingham called Carlton. It's comparatively highbrow - but you wouldn't want to be called it...

i think it's fine - go with what you like.

expatinscotland Sat 13-Sep-08 19:56:26

it's a hotel.

It's OK - one of the producers of Lost is Carlton (Cuse)

Thanks to the people who have commented constructively. Mutt, I posted to gauge opinion. I wanted to know what people thought about the name. I do not consider such a gorgeous name to be a burden (by the way, it's burdEn, not burdOn...)
Thanks to all posters, especially those who have been thoughtful and constructive in their replies. X

This was on my list for ds1!
You are the only other person I've known of to consider it. I knew a Carlton when I was younger, he was quite normal grin Go for it, its a lovely name smile

Ramada
Jarvis
Holiday Inn

Nice, but first thought is Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

harpomarx Sat 13-Sep-08 21:05:52

good name

don't worry about the parents, my mum hated my choice (my dad may have done too but is too nice to say!) but absolutely loves it now, cos she loves her grandaughter.

itsallsoscary Sat 13-Sep-08 21:30:04

Thanks!! We may call our second 'Holiday Inn' (or Radisson!)
Thanks very much for all your thoughts.

Wouldn't be on my list but its your baby your choice. Don't see the need for all these 'Tell me what you think of this name' threads though. You all end up calling them what you want anyway hmm

pointydog Sat 13-Sep-08 21:37:40

There is no need for them but they are very interesting and fun

Heated Sat 13-Sep-08 21:41:06

It falls into that bland surnamey category that will date imho - sorry to align with the parents on this.

i think it is the itv network...
