doh! Hadn't really thought of Gus as being short for Magnus. I know 2 of those, aged 3 and 5.

not keen on Gus ... is that an inevitable abbreviation, do you think?

Several. but half my family is from Norway. Personally i love the name. Had never heard it before my cousin called his son it.

I usually think of Gus as short for Angus of which I know quite a few but Magnus I know none personally. Like it though

LetThemEatCake Thu 18-Jun-09 22:04:27

yes, I would have thought angus = gus more than Magnus. I reckon Magnus would get abbreviated to Mags, if anything?

None at all. But it's a good name.

FatGirlThin Thu 18-Jun-09 22:08:44

None (and I'm a teacher so have own dc's school and place of work to compare). Are you naming after the creator of sportacus?! wink

If you're concerned about popularity, have you been to the Bounty site? I would never pick a child's name without checking there first.

It will tell you where it comes on the list of children's names for the previous year and whether it is rising or falling in popularity.
