ThePhantomPlopper Tue 30-Jun-09 19:32:26

Bad in what way?

choufleur Tue 30-Jun-09 19:36:33

Bad in a ronnie barker in prison kinda way maybe

goomum Tue 30-Jun-09 19:37:37

It has the word letch in it.

was one of dh's favourite when I was expecting dc1 (and I was swaying towards it!) dc1 turned out to be dd1 and she has a big standard common name now hmm

Depends if you like surnames as first names. Same vein as Harrison, Jackson, Cooper etc to me. Sounds American.

eandh Tue 30-Jun-09 19:40:42

bog standard even!!

I like surnames as first names - but you do have to think of nick-names that children will get.

Having said that my son's name is a terrible american surname/nickname combo so go for it!

I agree with choufleur. to me Fletcher is always preceded by Norman Stanley.

JackieNo Tue 30-Jun-09 21:17:27

Norman stanley here too, I'm afraid.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 30-Jun-09 21:20:12

The only Fletcher that I know is a dog

hocuspontas Tue 30-Jun-09 21:23:09

Bad. Next?

flowerybeanbag Tue 30-Jun-09 21:26:02

Would be good if not for Norman Stanley.

LilRedWG Tue 30-Jun-09 21:26:12

Sorry, but the only Fletcher I have know (and that was his surname) was known as Feltcher.

Not a typo or nickname I would want associated with my child.

Heated Tue 30-Jun-09 21:27:52

Bad. Unfortuntely I know a Fletch(er). He is a moron. Referred to either as Wretch or Letch.

MamaLazarou Wed 01-Jul-09 09:00:52

Just makes me automatically think: 'felcher'.

Mammina Wed 01-Jul-09 09:01:51

well I like it!

BunnyLebowski Wed 01-Jul-09 09:05:25

So very very very bad.

Madmentalbint Wed 01-Jul-09 09:10:54

Not good, sorry.

Bucharest Wed 01-Jul-09 09:18:25

Bad. In a "it's a surname durrrr" kind of way.

fruitstick Wed 01-Jul-09 09:24:31

I prefer Norman Stanley!

Tillyscoutsmum Wed 01-Jul-09 09:32:00

Makes me think Felcher here as well blush Sorry
