Would probably shorten Barnabas to Barney.

Opinions please smile

Damon sounds like Damien or demon.
Barnabas sounds like a fattish bear.

I like Damon over Barnabas

I knew a guy called Damon and he was lovely, so that's probably why and Barney makes me think of the bear.

Just for moment when I read the title of the thread I thought it said Bananas or Damsons and I really couldn't think why someone would wnat to call their child that.

I like Barnaby better than Barnabas but like both much more than Damon.

If not, I prefer Barnabas.

Damon deff. I really quite like Damon.

Barnabas is no name for a man.

Neither. Damon reminds me of the omen, barney is a purple dinosaur. Desmond I don't like either, doesn't suit a baby/child imo.

Love Barnabas, a cool name. Do not like Damon.

pointydog Fri 31-Jul-09 22:24:22

I've always found this damon pretty cool too.

Well, a bit cooler than barnabas

Your Damon examples did not entice me for a second but the god-fearing bear raised a chuckle grin

Barnabas rules o.k.

Yum to Damon from Blur - but as seen at Glasto this year, he sadly doesn't look like that anymore.

I have taught a couple of Damons and they have tended towards the 'loveable rogue' side of the class. Also (and I see this as a good thing when surrounded by pupils who like R&B!) towards the alternative music side.

Barnaby is good, don't like Barnabas or Damon

gigglewitch Fri 31-Jul-09 22:52:13

How about John?

Damon reminds me too much of Team America.

Barnaby sounds like a talking teddy bear.


Tidey Fri 31-Jul-09 22:55:21

Sorry, Barnabas. Read it wrong. In which case, it reminds me of the Vicar of Dibley.
