I love it btw but I know it is an odd one - not planning another now but just curious about boys names.

I think he would have to be super handsome...

Are you joking?

Er, I think he would be reclusive, probably a bit of an odd-un and have a lot of shirts. Though he would probably throw good parties...

It just makes me think of household appliances. You know like; Hoover, Smeg, Dyson, and Gatsby.

And as I wouldn't call my child Smeg, I wouldn't call them Gatsby either.

Pretentious (sorry)

Goober Fri 12-Jun-09 20:20:05

Sounds like a dogs name.

TotalChaos Fri 12-Jun-09 20:20:21

Nope. Sounds too much like a cartoon animal/sitcom dog.

My DH's with hf128219. Don't do it. People will always say "Oh? As in the Great Gatsby?"

cthea Fri 12-Jun-09 20:24:45

Gat for short.

cookielove Fri 12-Jun-09 20:26:25

Sounds to much like a name for a animal, and oh my it sounds ridculous

barnsleybelle Fri 12-Jun-09 20:28:54

Handsome or not, i don't like it at all... sorry

CrushWithEyeliner Fri 12-Jun-09 20:43:57

Like I said it is not for me - I am just curious about names in general. This one has had a v strong reaction!

He will EITHER grow up to call everyone 'old sport' and have a fantastic home on Long Island and suffer from unrequited love

OR he will get teased mercilessly at school
