I like it. Wouldn't choose it, but it's characterful whilst still sensible. I highly doubt he'd resent you for it in future. Thumbs up from me.

Will you be giving birth to a 40-year-old tory?

Bessie123 Sat 27-Dec-08 22:52:11

Because if so, I think the name is spot on. Otherwise, a bit fuddy duddy?

Beadle? Or Kyle?

Sorry, it's a no from me.

Not my favourite name even slightly.

However I know a lot of Jem's & Jezza's and love them all dearly.

My uncle is not 40 or a Tory (if he were, he might be more bearable). However, he is a Jeremy and has a horrid beard.

choklit - why didn't you say so? Jeremy is a perfect name for a giraffe. Good choice.

not to my taste am afraid

That's a name I like. Jeremiah, Jerem, Jerah and Jermias are nice too. But Jeremy is the nice middle class one out of those.

Bessie123 Sat 27-Dec-08 23:13:50

Jeremiah was a bullfrog. He was a good friend of mine. I couldn't understand a single word that he said but I helped him drink his wine. La la la

I know a Jez.
Dont like the full version though.

Jeremy is lovely. Jem for short for a cute younger boy then he will no doubt be Jez at school. All lovely IMO.

Boss's boyfriend, so can't but would. Love Jem for a nn.

Love it - am very fond of a friend called Jeremy but it's not pure association that makes me like it. It's unusual but classic. I am also in Australia and J. Kyle and J. Beadle are not on the radar at all.

He will be called Jezza at school, though. It was the dreadful Australian habit of abbreviating names that made us go with something un-shortenable for DD.
