We're thinking of naming our baby this. What do you think, would you think of the cricket connection? Does it matter?
Other options are Sidney or Simian.

Now that is just plain silly imo!!

Bugger I meant Jiminy Cricket...

Dont be ridiculous!

Jiminy is awful

Sidney - not my choice

Simian is spelt wrong as it should be Simeon which is a nice name.

No way! Definitely Jiminy Cricket. And it does matter!

Simeon is nice spellt like that.'s ok. I quite like Sid, just 'cos of Cbeebies Sid!

Simeon is lovely!

I prefer Sidney out of those on your list - although I think it's becoming more popular as a girl's name than boys.

Jiminy is definitely a cricket, sorry! Also, you'll likely get people constantly confusing it for Jimmy. What about Jeremy instead?

I'm sorry, but considering an insect or a monkey as names for your child must mean a rush of hormones previously not known to womankind. I too have had hormone induced name insanity blips, and I only say this bluntly to be kind!

Oh yes, love Sidney though!
