What do you reckon?

janeite Wed 29-Jul-09 18:40:42

Love it but dp laughed his socks off when I suggested it.

Like Barnaby Bear? Sorry. I think its nice really its just when there is a character on tele it's difficult not to think of them?.

Greensleeves Wed 29-Jul-09 18:42:49

I think it's really sweet

go for it!

Greensleeves Wed 29-Jul-09 18:43:33

and IME people will only think of TV characters etc before the baby is born - after that they will think of your baby

WinkyWinkola Wed 29-Jul-09 18:44:25

I don't know Barnaby Bear.

pointydog Wed 29-Jul-09 18:49:25

We're Barnaby and Becky, off to see the world......grin

I actually agree with Greensleeves. My friends little boy is Milo and I have stopped thinking of the tweenies.

I do like Barnaby and Becky though.

We wish, we wish we were a fish!

It's the best boys name in the world!grin Warm and friendly with an artistic feel imo. Love the fact that Barnabas from the bible is known as the encourager.
My friends love our B's name and insists on using his name in full. Did have a four year old say "like Barnaby bear", he looked very impressed! Although I have yet to meet another one there were two in the local beautiful baby comp and another one announced in church.

I love it. Barns/Barney are cool nicknames as well

maggievirgo Wed 29-Jul-09 20:37:29

I do really like it, but it's just a bit too self-consciously urban chic. It works in enclaves of London!!! I prefer Gregory. It's less bear and more sport... I really like Zachary too, but that's a bit popular. I love names that end in y though. Jacoby? Is that a name?!

maggievirgo Wed 29-Jul-09 20:38:57

I'm a girl and he's a bear,
together we make a perfect pair
it's becky and barnaby bear

Becky must be about 22 by now! that programme is so old!

Pollyanna Wed 29-Jul-09 20:40:25

Becky is in Hollyoaks now!

I love the name too, but dh vetoed it for ds2

Cataline Wed 29-Jul-09 20:43:36

"Barnaby the bear's my name, never call me Jack or James, I will sing my way to fame, Barnaby the bear's my name"

maggievirgo Wed 29-Jul-09 20:47:29

maggievirgo Wed 29-Jul-09 20:48:04
