What do people think? I really like it but I am not 100% sure!

Bonneville Wed 01-Jul-09 18:14:58

No.

Sorry, much as I love(d) Harrison Ford, it is a surname.

Frasersmum123 Wed 01-Jul-09 18:18:26

I like it - it was on my list for DS2 but DH vetoed

CharlieandLolasMum Wed 01-Jul-09 18:18:46

Sorry but of all the Harry's/Harrisons I've looked after known - they've all been little buggers darlings

I love it. Harrison was on my shortlist from about the age of 14, but unfort I got a dog before I had kids.....

Fimbo Wed 01-Jul-09 18:20:53

Nope

MagNacarta Wed 01-Jul-09 18:22:29

Common.

Bonneville Wed 01-Jul-09 18:28:07

I don't like surnames as first names. Chavvy.

janeite Wed 01-Jul-09 18:39:07

Nope from me, sorry.

harrison ford was not common hmm

LyraSilvertongue Wed 01-Jul-09 19:08:21

DS1 is Harrison on his birth certificate but he's just plain old Harry in everyday life.
And no, Chalieandlolasmum, he is not a little bugger. And he not even a little bit chavvy.

Thank you LyraSilvertongue - I was starting to think everyone would hate the name!

OrangeFish Wed 01-Jul-09 19:23:55

Isn't it a surname?

EldonAve Wed 01-Jul-09 19:25:28

I like it

cookielove Wed 01-Jul-09 19:28:02

i love it, and i've worked with a lot of wotsits called harry, but still love the name, and its not chavvy, and its not common, well actually there are lots of harrys but not so many harrisons

Haribosmummy Wed 01-Jul-09 19:33:04

I have a Harrison and he by no means chavvy grin but he can be a little bugger at times! grin

But like Lyra, mine is plain old Harry in every day life!

totalmisfit Wed 01-Jul-09 19:34:40

dh would love to use this for our next dc. he's a huge star-wars and indiana jones fan (come to think of it, Indiana is another name he's angling for)

Haribosmummy Wed 01-Jul-09 19:35:09

Actually, Harrison is no. 31 on the popular names list, so it is more popular than people think! (I was surprised to find that out!)

Check here

Harrison has been in the top 50 names for the last 5 or 6 years.

Haribosmummy Wed 01-Jul-09 19:36:21

LOL at totalmisfit - We're expecting a DD shortly, and I love the name India, but i thought people might think I was a bit obsessed!!! grin

Bleatblurt Wed 01-Jul-09 19:39:53

I know someone with a Harrison but he gets called Harry. I like it. smile

mopsyflopsy Wed 01-Jul-09 20:05:51

I'm not that keen on it - sounds too much like surname.

SarahL2 Wed 01-Jul-09 20:23:29

DH suggested it for DS but spoiled it by always referring to bump as "Harrison Ford Mondeo"

May go back on the list if we find out DC2 is a boy at the 20 week scan though as we really struggled for boys names with DS.

jellybeans Wed 01-Jul-09 20:51:53

I don't like surnames as first names either but it's OK.

othersideofchannel Wed 01-Jul-09 21:46:10

Not that keen at all, I'm afraid. Harry is cute, though.
